From Seattle, with a clean slate
Blue Scholars not ‘conscious’ but wide awake
For nearly a decade the duo of MC Geologic and DJ Sabzi has been spinning rhymes that are at once national, even global in their social scope, and hyper-local, an engagingly detailed and affectionate guide to their hometown Seattle. In the process, they’ve become leaders in that city’s fertile but long-unheralded hip-hop scene. “Cinemetropolis’’ is their third full-length album (they’ve also made a flurry of EPs), and their strongest. They visit the Paradise on Thursday.
