Los Angeles-based MC Busdriver—a lasting remnant of the Goodlife Cafe and an early member of Project Blowed—celebrates his forthcoming fifth solo album RoadKillOvercoat with a brief tour that will hit the South, the West, and New York early in 2007.
The album features the combined talents of Nobody (Plug Research) and Boom-Bip (Lex) on the production tip, and has already generated tidal waves of praise despite the fact that it’s not on the shelves yet. Perhaps the acclaim has something to do with the almost constant stream of work Busdriver has delivered for nearly a decade, collaborating with everyone from Z-Trip to TTC to Daedelus, as well as breaking ground as a solo artist. He’s most definitely worth catching just to witness his dynamic showmanship performed over choppy beats and steady rhythms.
