As mumble rap and trap rap continues to survive without their artists actually rapping, folks in the underground and alternative rap communities across the planet continue to write bars and hold sacred the true art form of hip-hop, you know, writing lyrics. Seattle’s Sadistik is one of these rappers.

“Chemical Burns,” a track that came out in 2014, which features the late rapper Eyedea, is probably the best example of Sadistik’s honest lyricism and skill level as a rapper as the track is in 6/8 time – a tough time signature for most lesser MCs. “Less that you know, the less that you feel / I’m cursed with intelligence I can’t heal / kneel, kill, death to the bourgeois / proletariat with the new song / noose on a bony neck / loneliness, opiate and a bruised jaw.”



With Nacho Picasso, Rafael Vigilantics, Upgrade, $7-$12, Thursday, November 9, 9pm, Limelight, 2718 N. St. Mary’s St., thelimelightsa.com. – CC
