In this weeks paper, with Nate Rob on the cover.. so official.
"Say what you want about Mad Rad, but good Lordy, what doesn't kill them only seems to make them stronger. Like badass atomic cockroaches with a major ear for beats and an uncanny knack for generating buzz, these kids take whatever seems to explode around them and turn it into even more musical "White Gold." Now falsetto king and producer extraordinaire PSmoov (and co-conspirator Rik Rude) are expanding the MR empire with his killer side project Fresh Espresso. A slightly more straight-ahead hip-hop project, Fresh Espresso's approach is tight, fresh, and referential all at once. The track "Diamond Pistol" plays like a loving Jay-Z tribute, while the party jam of the year, "Vader of the Rap Game," comes complete with "Mr. Roboto" samples (yeah, that's right, Styx, wanna make something of it?). Perfecting a formula that's equal parts brilliant and crazy, the Mad Rad crew seem set to provide just the scene shake Seattle needs. With Gran Rapids, Mad Rad. Columbia City Theater, 4916 Rainier Ave. S., 723-0088. 8 p.m. $5." MA'CHELL DUMA LAVASSAR
