Fri 6/19
Raider Klan

Since the dawn of dial-up, the internet rap scene has been murky, unpredictable, insanely fun and with only a few exemptions, inconsistent. One of those rather rare exceptions is the hellishly themed Raider Klan. With historical collaborations with Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky and former home to huge acts like Chris Travis and Xavier Wulf, Miami rapper SpaceGhostPurrp leads the evolving franchise in its dominance of what it means to be an internet rap group in 2015. That means keeping up with relevant issues and styles while playing unaware of the constant movements of other lineups and staying true to original presentation. Raider Klan records are typically a mélange of synth-heavy chopped and screwed instrumentals, the usual suspects of today’s subject matter and the cutthroat rhythms of the mid ’90s, all while keeping a low-key, shadow-in-the-night presence. Recent acquisitions of female MC Amber London and fellow Houston representative Yung Simmie (pictured) cement the dark, bombastic focus of the Memphis hybrid sound for the conglomerate. $15, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N.
