Cadence Weapon
Cadence Weapon
Cadence Weapon is the musical project of Edmonton-born, Toronto-based rapper, producer
and poet Roland “Rollie” Pemberton. The son of a pioneering hip-hop radio DJ, Pemberton was
introduced to a diverse library of music at an early age. After teaching himself to rap at age 13,
he would soon enter freestyle battles and sit in as a member of his uncle’s funk band. Inspired
by Edmonton’s burgeoning experimental electronic and underground rap scenes, Cadence
Weapon developed a singular production style harnessing aspects of both worlds. He released
his debut album Breaking Kayfabe to international critical fanfare, earning him record deals
with Big Dada and Anti Records. That album was shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize; his
album Hope In Dirt City would do the same in 2012.
Known for his sharp lyricism, Pemberton served as Poet Laureate of Edmonton from 2009
to 2011, making him the literary ambassador of his hometown. His debut book of poetry
Magnetic Days was released by Metatron in 2014 and his poem “The Garden” was incorporated
into a bronze sculpture at the Alberta Legislature Grounds in Edmonton in 2018. Pemberton
also acted as the narrator for the VICELAND TV series PAYDAY and Mister Tachyon and has
hosted lectures for Red Bull Music Academy and Native Instruments.
Cadence Weapon has returned with a new self-titled album on eOne Music Canada that
expands his stylistic range by incorporating elements of trap, funk, electro, techno and grime.
Featuring production by KAYTRANADA, Jacques Greene and Blue Hawaii and appearances by
Deradoorian and Casey MQ, this record finds Cadence refining his songwriting as he explores
themes of individuality, race, technology and existentialism through his expressive lyrics.
