Song of the Day: Cancer Rising – Wait A Minute

Every Friday, we deliver a different song from a local performer as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. Today’s featured selection, chosen by Afternoon Show host Kevin Cole, is Wait A Minute by Cancer Rising from their 2007 self-released, self-titled album.

Cancer Rising – Wait A Minute (MP3)

Cancer Rising, consisting of rappers Gatsby and Judas along with DJ TilesOne, is slowly becoming a Seattle institution. Since their first recording in 2003, it has been a straight shot to the upper echelon of NW hip-hop. Beyond the solid lyrics and powerful vocal delivery, CR lays down layers of rock and funk that few musicians in the genre dare touch. Most importantly, these guys save their best for the stage, putting other rappers to shame from Bumbershoot to Roskilde and booking supporting roles for international acts like on the recent Wu Tang tour. Essentially, if the stars are aligned, this should be a breakout year for Cancer Rising. Pick up one of only 500 signed and numbered copies of this EP now at Easy Street Records, or head to their MySpace page where you’ll find the digital version.
