Busdriver+Tim Fite+Nosaj Thing
Dextrous, rapidfire MC Busdriver was raised in the Los Angeles Good Life scene, where angular flows and unique word combos were doled out like guitar shredding. Over the course of eight-or-so albums, he’s grown into a singular MC: A mix of political and absurd, heavy, and joyous—someone who makes rapping over Mozart’s Sonata In A Major seem like an artistic coup instead of a weirdo gimmick. He's next-level music without the art-fuck aftertaste. With hip-hop-centric troubadour Tim Fite and the chillaxing electronic layers of Nosaj Thing.
