It's no secret that we here at Radio 3 are big fans of Cadence Weapon. He's the winner of a Bucky Award and his debut CD Breaking Kayfabe was nominated for a Polaris Music Prize...one of only 10 Canadian albums.

Most of us hosts have interviewed the Edmonton rapper at least once. For me, this is twice. Last time in Halifax for our Pop Explosion concert, and today for his own major announcement - he just signed to Epitaph Records in the United States.

I reached Cadence Weapon, aka Rollie Pemberton, at his home in Edmonton.
