Myka 9 & Factor

Terminally underrated West Coast rapper Myka 9 reunited with Canadian producer Factor on this year's Sovereign Soul, an album that seemed almost willfully ignorant of current trends in hip hop – and was all the better for it. We're not convinced that the duo are any better known in Tokyo than they are in the States, so it'll be interesting to see how many people turn out to watch them when they bring the album tour to town this weekend. Factor is also due to appear as Paranoid Castle – his duo with Bay Area rapper Kirby Dominant – though it's local crew Simi Lab and spinners like DJ Kensei and Quietstorm who are probably going to draw the crowds.
