Cervantes brings heat to the rap scene this Wednesday, June 10th with Jedi Mind Tricks, the gritty underground rap heroes of hip-hop’s golden era.
Ever since the 90’s JMT has presented raw, cut to the bone lyrics synched with a signature truth laced in each beat. The group reconnects after a six-year hiatus after Violence Begets Violence and luckily put Denver on the tour.
The group today consists of Emcee Vinnie Paz, also of the huge collective Army of the Pharaohs, as well as the veteran group Heavy Metal Kings with Ill Bill, and selective producer Stoupe the Enemy of Mankind. Vinnie Paz and Stoupe the Enemy of Mankind reunited for the June 2015 release of The Thief and the Fallen.
The new album boasts a number of bangers, and the supporting acts ring a sense of nostalgia, including R.A. the Rugged Man and more of the like from the 90’s. The tracks Fraudulent, And God Said to Cain, and Is Happiness Just a Word? are all receiving positive responses from the long time fan base these musicians have accrued.
You won’t want to miss showcase of their talents, who knows how many more tours and albums this duo will gift upon Denver in the future. Supporting acts include Whiskey Blanket, Flowalition, and DJ Gatsby. The show is at Cervantes Masterpiece; show goes from 9 PM to 2 AM. You can get tickets $30 at the door, $25 in advanced.
