Busdriver’s frenetic, insightful lyricism and propensity for unconventional beats have established his legacy in L.A. hip-hop of the last two decades. Since his last album, Thumbs, came out in 2015, he’s released a steady stream of “Free Black Press Radio” segments, combining sociopolitical spoken word with experimental soundscapes that verge on sci-fi. At Zebulon, he’ll be accompanied by Leimert Park’s The Underground Railroad, a jazz band known for their work with The Freestyle Fellowship. They all participated in the ’90s open-mic workshop Project Blowed, the precursor to Low End Theory and today’s jazz-influenced beat scene. After encountering West Coast alt-rap in the late 1990s, Kenny Segal switched gears from drum ’n’ bass to producing hip-hop and has never looked back. Journalist turned performance poet Jerry Quickley travels the world with his politically charged spoken word, including several collaborations with Philip Glass.
