A veteran of the acclaimed hip-hop labels Definitive Jux, and Fondle ‘Em Records, Chris Palko, better known as Cage, has been intimately connected to the underground hip-hop scene as early as 1991, having worked with legends such as El-P, KMD, Necro, Godfather Don, K-Solo, and more. Since that time, Cage has become known as much as a pioneer of horrorcore rap, as for his dark and paranoid rhymes on underground favorites like “Radiohead”, “Agent Orange”, and “That Smut”, from his work with the hip-hop group Smut Peddlers. His 2002 debut Movies For The Blind is considered an essential underground album to this day, scoring critical acclaim and a Billboard Hot 100 spot. In recent years Cage has gone on to appear on Kid Cudi’s Top 5 Billboard release Man on The Moon 2, and has worked with Shia LaBeouf, DJ Shadow, Jello Biafra, and numerous others.
Now in 2013, Cage returns to the scene with Kill The Architect which will hit stores on October 22nd. The album marks the return of longtime NYC indy label Eastern Conference Records, the imprint with which Cage worked to release a number of albums including Movies For The Blind. The project also finds long time collaborator and Eastern Conference head DJ Mighty Mi back behind the boards for the majority of the project.
