When: Fri., Oct. 3, 9 p.m. 2014
Cappadonna is best known as a member of the Wu Tang Clan, an iconic rap group whose songs have no shortage of memorable hooks. That makes the rapper’s latest solo effort, Hook Off, especially interesting and daring, since it has no hooks at all. Each of the album’s 17 cuts is based solely around verses, with no identifiable choruses. The idea, according to Cappadonna, is to force listeners to focus on rhymes and lyrical flow rather than catchy hooks. You can catch Cappadonna at Venue Nightclub in South Burlington this Friday, October 3, with Urban Shocker and S.I.N. Sizzle.
