Montana of 300 has a gig Sunday night, Oct. 9, at Launchpad (618 Central SW). Noted for a complex rhythmic and rhyming style that incorporates metaphorically expressed stories about a troubled upbringing brought to life with cinematic strings and synths, a Roland drum machine and R&B vocal conceits, Montana of 300 is hip-hop nation. He initially reached the heights of stardom and praise on the strength of remixes, like that of “Panda,” a single by Desiingner—and with provocative yet insightful recordings like Fire in the Church. A true postmodernist from Chicago, Montana of 300 appropriates sounds and samples and beats from the previously recorded work of other rappers and EDM producers, but does so in such a way that implies the rapper is resignedly yet dutifully searching for something greater hidden amidst all the beats and bravado. This tendency comes out in compositions throughout Fire, including “Fighting Demons, Dropping Jewels” and “Daddy Used To Be the Plug.” Admission to this big-shoulder-borne bit of brilliance will cost 13+ listeners $20. Totally worth it totally starting at 7:30pm.
