Guante & Big Cats - You Better Weaponize CD
Guante is a rapper, two-time National Poetry Slam champion, activist and educator. Big Cats is a visionary producer and multi-instrumentalist who has worked with Sage Francis, P.O.S., TTxBC and others. Together, they've crafted an album brimming with substantive punchlines, gallows humor and a down-to-earth political edge, all over some of the most gorgeously banging production of the year. Featuring indie-rap visionaries like Toki Wright, Crescent Moon (of Kill the Vultures), Kristoff Krane and more, "You Better Weaponize" is one of the tightest, smartest, most singular projects ever to emerge from the lauded Twin Cities underground hip hop scene.
