Thursday, Oct. 24 @ The Loft, 414 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing. All ages, $10-$13, 7 p.m.
Liquid Assassin, a solo artist from Saint Paul, Minnesota and former member of the rap duo Grave Plott, has cut records for Tech N9ne’s Strange Music label and shared stages with the likes of 50 Cent, Redman, Method Man, DMX and Pitbull, to only name a few. In more recent years, the emcee has been steadily recording albums for his own imprint: 42 Records.
In August, he dropped his latest solo album, “Tsunami,” and this month he embarks on the Tsunami Tour across the country. Thursday, he brings a “Halloween edition” of that show to The Loft, along with opening sets from Jimi Kanklez, The Michigan Misfits, VALO, Cody Kidd Young, Tha Tommy Knockerz and Bulldog.
Liquid Assassin was born Cardell Avila Toombs on June 28, 1982 in Saint Paul, Minnesota. While he was writing lyrics as a teen, he didn’t release a legit album until 2005 — when he teamed up with Killa C and formed Grave Plott. Since then, he’s toured heavily across the map while releasing stacks of tracks. He also stays busy signing artists to his 42 Records roster — including Amanda Hays, aka HaZe, a Chicago-based emcee who joined his label back in April.
