Like a lot of peers weaned on ’90s hip-hop, Missouri rapper Mac Lethal doesn’t much care for the direction commercial rap has headed over the last decade. On his Rhymesayers debut album, 2007’s 11:11, Mac Lethal spits extended, insult-comedian tirades with an anti-commercialism, anti-establishment slant, and pop-rappers aren’t the only subject of his ire. He also calls out hipsters, religious extremists and Maynard James Keenan. “I used to like Tool,” he raps, “’til they made the same album they made the last time they made the same album/ Every time they make a damn album it’s the same album, really.” Openers tonight include DJ Sku, Soulcrate Music, The Night Krawlers, Prof and Akream.

Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
