News: ProbCause to Join Lil Dicky on Prelude To Summer Tour
The Chicago Rapper Will Embark on National Tour With Support From DJ/Drummer Cofresi
Critical Praise for ProbCause:
“ProbCause nimbly rides fusion-friendly hip-hop tracks; there’s the DJ Screwed-up dubstep buzzer ‘Ego Trip’ and the ecstatic rap-rock track ‘Neon Dreams.'” – SPIN
“He’s a great rapper who you can imagine killing it at open mics, cyphers and old-school styled club nights.” – PotholesInMyBlog
“You’ll find WAVES incorporates several different genres within it’s overall hip-hop vibe– electronic, rock, and blues are some of the other elements tapped…” – HotNewHipHop
“The rising rapper […] has continued to dominate his own lane… Prob will have you locked in.” – XXL
“…just one conversation with ProbCause is enough to make you realize that he’s deeper than even his most serious lyrics suggest.” – Chicagoist.com
“The lanky MC’s vocal gymnastics have an elastic flow… he raps like a fan in the crowd hollering at the DJ to pump up the volume.” – Chicago Reader
“It’s diverse, veering from slower flows erring in the sub-genre of jazz-rap to hard-hitting, hard-spitting electro-rap. It’s a perfect summer project…” – HillyDilly
“In Chicago and beyond, ProbCause is one to watch. His skills, creativity and persona are refreshing and unlike much else. There is a spin on everything that sounds and feels distinctly his. In both the rap game and the art world he is changing the rules.” – FakeShoreDrive.com
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.
