This Friday, Chicago based rap duo Hurt Everybody will be taking over The Sett with UW’s own Lord of The Fly and CRASHprez. Ever since they began dropping tracks almost every week on Soundcloud, Hurt Everybody have quickly become one of rap’s most fascinating and experimental artists to watch. Formed in early 2014, Hurt Everybody is comprised of 17 year old rapper Carl, 24 year old rapper Supa Bwe, and recently added 19 year old producer Mulatto Beats. Their sound is often described as “cosmic rap” – a mixture of spacey-sounding beats and lyrics that cover everything from space goddesses and DMT trips gone wrong. This summer they dropped the Hurt Everybody EP, their first project to be released for free download. With such a short history as a group, Hurt Everybody has developed a surprisingly dedicated fanbase. The reason? Because people care what these guys have to say. When asked “Why Hurt Everybody?”, rapper Carl responded – “Because change is uncomfortable, and we’re forcing it”. It’s clear that Hurt Everybody are ready to blow up, and they’re perfectly aware of it. This won’t be a show you want to miss!
Don’t forget to get there early to catch Lord of The Fly and CRASHprez! Daniel Leonard and Michael Penn II, better known by their rap monikers Lord of The Fly and CRASHprez respectively, are rappers who recently have garnered a rather impressive local buzz. Students at UW themselves, they have performed at Madison’s annual Revelry and FreakFest festivals, as well as a number of local shows. Most recently, they hosted a basement show themed around breakfast food (keg included, of course!). These two are some of the most talented and hard-working lyricists I’ve heard recently. Come check them out this Friday at The Sett and SUPPORT LOCAL HIP-HOP!!
