Cadence Weapon Follows Up "My Crew (Wooo)" & "Connor McDavid" with Gibbs Co-produced Nelly Furtado Remix "Behind Your Back" (self-released)



Make no mistake, party people—'round these parts, one-time Canadian Poet Laureate and former Pitchfork staff writer Roland (Rollie) "Cadence Weapon" Pemberton is often regarded as one of the finest, funnest, and most-talented emcees in all of the land; just think, an extremely more talented, painfully under-rated, waaaayyy less corny, lyrically verbose version of Canadian export Drake. Cadence Weapon recently re-emerged from a self-imposed nearly 5-year-long sabbatical from the music industry following his critically-acclaimed 2012 album. Hope In Dirt City, as well as a brief period wherein he appeared to be going by simply "Rollie." A re-weaponized and tactfully word-sharpened Cadence Weapon triumphantly returned to the spotlight not long after the top of the year with KAYTRANADA-produced "My Crew (Woooo)" and not long after, seemingly only Spotify Canada-released "Connor McDavid" (which soon pooped up on his Soundcloud.) While nothing has been 100% officially confirmed, it appears as through Rollie Pemberton is diligently working towards completing his long-awaited follow-up to Hope In Dirt City. Not entirely unlike its hockey-referencing predecessor, Cadence Weapon's latest, "Behind Your Back," was produced in collaboration with fellow Canadian beatsmith and mixing engineer Michael Gibbs; "since Summer is rapidly-approaching, I thought it might be a good time to post this remix I made for Nelly Furtado with my homie Gibbs. Check it out!" Cadence Weapon enthusiastically wrote within a Facebook post over Memorial Day Weekend. It appears as though Weapon & Gibbs quite cleverly unleashed their "Behind Your Back" remix just in time for Summer BBQ season. "Behind Your Back" was released as a pre-album single to Nelly Furtado's first album in some five years, The Ride and appears within Nelstar Music's deluxe 2xLP vinyl version of the album, along with two additional vinyl-only bonus tracks, "Islands of Me" and "Bliss."
