Queer rap is on the rise, and Dosha Devastation and Cunty Crawford LaDosha — rapper and producer, respectively, for Brooklyn's House of LaDosha
— are near the top of the heap, tossing crass rhymes over crunk beats. It's hard to imagine a more complementary touring partner than former, maybe-kinda-still Kansas Citian Cody Critcheloe, aka Ssion. I have listened to "My Love Grows in the Dark
," a Madonna-style club single from Ssion's recent Bent
, probably 100 times this year. I also honestly believe that Critcheloe might be the most progressive fashion icon in America. Don't even get me started on his amazing Fila shirt in the "Dark" video. Locals Lazy
open this show, which is this Saturday, October 13, at the Riot Room.
