  • Summary: Cadence Weapon's sophomore album is said to be inspired by his summer in Edmonton.

  1. As a knowing send-up of youth culture, Afterparty Babies can be both funny and obnoxious.
  2. A dense, innovative follow-up to Canadian MC Rollie Pemberton's promising 2005 debut. [Apr 2008, p. 112]
  3. He backs up his insolence with dense, tricky productions that pile samples and scratching atop techno and electro beats and go increasingly haywire as he gets more worked up.
  4. If the satisfying Afterparty Babies doesn't have the same thunderclap impact of its predecessors, it's because that element of adventure is subdued.
  5. 70
    His latest outing, Afterparty Babies, doesn't derail that path, but it struggles to stay on course.
  6. The boring beats and throwback rhyme flow (circa 92)--which is weak even by Edmontonian standards--put Afterparty Babies somewhere beneath Don Cash’s home demos and the outtakes from Organized Rhyme’s Huh? Stiffenin’ Against The Wall.
