New Jersey-rapparen CRIMEAPPLE har under några års tid varit en av undergroundscenens vassaste rappare, då han även blivit en av Cypress Hill-legendaren DJ Muggs närmaste protegéer. Senaste åren har han även samarbetat med Westside Gunn, Roc Marciano, Cypress Hill och Ghostface Killah.

Nu åker CRIMEAPPLE ut på sin första Europaturné och gör ett stopp i Sverige, för en spelning på Broken Dreams i Borlänge den 30 mars 2024. I ett pressutskick beskrivs CRIMEAPPLE närmare:

Crimeapple’s prolific run kicked off in earnest with a much-buzzed-about “freestyle” on Statik Selektah’s Shade 45 show, a nearly 10-minute lyrical barrage that dissolved any doubts in the room. His sartorial style—loose-fitting hoodies, bald head, and a loud, red beard—is quick to draw skepticism. But those doubts are quickly put to rest the moment he opens his mouth, his smooth delivery and nimble flow honed at countless rap battles, spitting verses peppered with clever one-liners designed to stop you in your tracks. Born to Colombian parents and raised in northern New Jersey, Crimeapple finds himself, like many Latinos, between worlds. He made a bilingual rap record in Medellín with DJ Muggs (Medallo) but is still seen as an outsider in the country of his birth. Crime knows he’s a gringo (“I’m not Latino enough for Telemundo,” he raps on “Carrington Event”) but still spits in Spanglish. He remains independent—with a distribution deal through the Orchard—and generally seems unconcerned with breaking into the overground, let alone the mainstream. The man just raps really well, and somehow, that’s enough.”
