With his eclectic sound that jumps from hip-hop, to electronic, to RnB, and then back to a classic boom-bap gritty rap, Chicago rapper ProbCause is embarking on a national tour with rapper/comedian Lil Dicky this summer. The prolific MC will be joined by DJ/drummer Cofresi on all dates, including shows at SummerCamp Music Festival and Wakarusa Music Festival. “Cofresi is my drummer/producer and a huge part of what we are building. He plays on a hybrid drum/DJ setup which I haven’t seen any other group play, so we’ve built a really unique live setup together,” says ProbCause.
“Fans can definitely expect a lot of new music from my upcoming album which we will be dropping this summer as well as music from my WAVES EP. Anyone who has come to my shows in the past knows that I play a lot of music that I exclusively share at the live shows!”
Earlier this year, the Chicago rapper released an EP with Hologram Kizzie, fka Psalm One, as ZRO FOX. The project displays a range of hip-hop, trap, and wavy electro-spirited cuts, showing a musical chemistry that reaches new creative heights. “The EP offers plenty of thought-provoking rhymes and intense production for fans of alt-leaning hip-hop,” said Consequence of Sound in their premiere post. ProbCause is also gearing up for the release of new projects set to drop later this summer. Catch him on tour with Lil Dicky, dates and tickets here.
ProbCause is a prolific rapper and a painter too. Between performing at SXSW, North Coast, Costa Rica, and tour dates nation-wide, ProbCause is keeping busy and inspiring fellow students at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. His sound, which jumps from hip-hop, to electronic, to RnB, and then back to a classic boom-bap gritty rap, helped get him signed to high-profile booking agency Paradigm. With stories that make you reminisce and a percussive delivery that highlights his versatile production skills, ProbCause is at the head of the pack of promising new Chicago artists.
