Austin-by-way-of-Oregon rapper Cory Kendrix, of local rat pack LNS Crew, is making a December surge. Kendrix has a sneaky good, nascent single out, “Gettin Thoed Again,” and is on the road with his collective on the “Lz In The Sky” tour.
Kendrix raps with a southern, burned soul. “Gettin Thoed Again,” produced by San Antonio’s DJ Ninja (Blacknote Records) is a double-timed, skeleton-bearing track about burning one and getting sad. Kendrix–“512” neck tattoo, scruffy beard, and worn eyes–is an inward-gazing blazer who wears Portland Trailblazers jerseys in his lonely, compelling videos with purpose. It’s music about searching for purpose while you’re on pain killers and lost in a web of media. “I’m just trying to stimulate my high, I’ve been smoking, I think I just lost my sense of time,” Kendrix raps.
The LNS Crew has a bundle of strong, local rap you should lose yourself in. Kendrix’s imminent album, Ignorance, is slated for a December release and features contributing creative from Texas hitters like A.Dd+ and Reggie Coby of The LOEGz. Stay tuned.
