+ A cat called fritz
Pseudo Slang from Chicago is a jazz-esque hip hop outfit led by Emcee Sick in constant creative mode with immensely talented collaborators such as Pawcut, a Cat Called FRITZ, David Goliath, Rawhead, Dj Form, Jah Connery, and many more. Boasting a lengthy catalogue of releases spanning 20+ years with a focus on the beloved medium of vinyl, PS has predominantly self-released on Sick's label Baby Steps Hip Hop.
The ups and downs of artists' lives can have soaring highs, and plummeting lows. In Sickeee's case the incredible connections of 20+ years of heavy touring and creative growth are beyond worth all that, embodied in an ever-stacking physical body of artifacts in the world. Through stints of homelessness, and the sacrifice of stability the music necessitates, gratefulness remains the overarching take-away.
The list of collaborators and entities Pseudo Slang has worked with is long, but just to name a few: Pawcut, Vinia Mojica, Grap Luva, Daringer, Jeru the Damaja, a Cat Called FRITZ, Matt Gold, Dude & Phaeb, Maker, Rawhead, Dj Tommee, Dj LoPro, and labels like Fat Beats Records, Sub-Bombin Records, WTM, ThinkLoud Records, Baby Steps Hip Hop, Daily Concept, Radio Juicy, The Secret Life of Sound, and many more.
A 20+ year run of touring internationally in support of this music which means so much to so many is a blessing indeedy.
