[FUTURE HIP-HOP] Seattle hip-hop has exploded into colors in recent years. While that scene's biggest name, Shabazz Palaces, deals in elastic, black-lit murkiness, much of the rest of the city's MCs dabble in psychedelic fluorescents. See: everyone on this bill. While each group certainly has its own identity, they're linked by a few key components—glow-in-the-dark synths, cloud-funk beats, head-trip lyrics—most of all a desire to expand rap's borders into the cosmos. I can't speak toward Nu Era, Kung Foo Grip or Chill Crew's live shows, but if they're anything like Kingdom Crumbs' Martian roof-raisers, then get ready for one wigged-out party.
