ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Five Delinquent Habits albums, three solo albums and countless tours around the globe including the UK, Europe, Japan, South America, Mexico and Taiwan - Kemo the Blaxican of Delinquent Habits is releasing his first "Trifecta" a 3 song EP titled Ugly At Times featuring GODFORBID of That Handsome Devil. These one-of-a-kind projects is something Kemo chose to name Trifectas. For this first release, this duo packs a dynamic punch on the three piece trifecta. West Coast swagger fused with East Coast swank. Ugly At Times is a collaboration of two prominent veteran hip hop artists with undeniable chemistry saturated with ambitious vision that beautifully defines the art of hip hop.With production duties handled by Dr. Quandary & Louis Mackey, Ugly At Times packs enough musical and lyrical punch to satisfy even the most fever pitched Hip-Hop addicts.

Kemo the Blaxican hails from the Lower East Side of Los Angeles and is an original member of Los Angeles based Hip-Hop group Delinquent Habits. He’s equipped with a soulful style bilingual lyrics and hard-hitting beats that grab you. Then you hear the smooth-yet-powerful baritone vocals delivered with a distinctive tone. You recognize the voice as it commands attention with provocative lyrics over flavorful tracks. This MC shifts the rhyme from English to Spanish, and then back to English again seamlessly. Your head nods the whole way through. Godforbid, a distinguished veteran of the East Coast underground: he cut his teeth in the 90s & early Oughts, as part of the rap group Alaskan Fishermen, with the legendary Thirstin Howl 3rd. For the last decade, "Godforbid" has been the frontman of the nationally-lauded gypsy rock band That Handsome Devil, but always keeping his hip hop roots close.

Kemo the Blaxican's latest release Upside of Struggle on Dead Silence Records is series of hip hop tracks inspired by his roots; specifically southern California culture and the music that influenced his youth—from west coast funk, soul, and classic hip hop, to traditional Latin music. The album also features guest appearances by Sen Dog (Cypress Hill) and Tetsuya Weeping Willow Nakamura (formerly of War) on the track“Just What You Feelin,” as well as contributions by Sick Jacken (Psycho Realm) on the album. Upside of Struggle is Kemo’s third solo album on Dead Silence Records. The 12-track incarnation bursts with musical styles and compelling arrangements. Kemo’s lyrical skills stretch back and forth between L.A. street slang and barrio Spanish. He moves the listener through moods, harmoniously encapsulating contradiction, antagonism and the co-existence of good, even during bad times, all with mind bending ease.

Godforbid's latest release Jesus Chrysler is saying something substantial that resonates. Prowling around the dark edges of the beat and lashing for your throat with existential dread, scathing social commentary, and satiric self reflection, with a voice like a rusty razor. A boiling pot of dark rock riffs, psychedelic organs and an intense driving rhythms, with flows like he was born in the beat. The album features production from DJ 7L and an appearance by MC Esoteric (Czarface). The world is on fire, the culture is burning and Godforbid is roasting marshmallows and having post-apocalyptic sing alongs.
