Last year Cadence Weapon and fellow musicians Laura Barrett, Mark Hamilton (Woodpiegeon), and filmmaker Peter Lynch (Project Grizzly) paired up to travel into Waterton Lakes National Park to write collaborative songs while experiencing Canada's rugged terrain, all captured on HD film, creating one of thirteen tales of the inspiring new documentary series The National Parks Project.

The National Parks Project is a 13-part documentary series that pairs Canadian filmmakers and artists together across the country to improvise in each province's most beautiful parks, and the list of participants includes Shad, the Besnard Lakes, Sarah Harmer, Sam Roberts, Melissa Auf der Maur, Jim Guthrie, Apostle of Hustle, Think About Life, Billy Talent, The Constantines and more.

As a companion piece, National Parks Project have released the music this week, with proceeds from sales of the National Parks Project Soundtracks going to the Nature Conservancy of Canada.  Available now are a 20-track CD and a 26-track double-LP, and seven digital EPs containing 49 tracks, which are on iTunes and streaming at the National Parks Project website.

Listen to the Waterton Lakes EP featuring Cadence Weapon, Laura Barrett, and Mark Hamilton here.

Cadence Weapon presents TRON LEGACY: The Mixtape name-your-price digital release available now exclusively at
The always-grinding Writer, Producer and Performer Roland Pemberton aka Cadence Weapon is back once again, and he continues to firmly establish his legacy as a pioneer in a passionate crusade to push the rap and electronic music envelope. 

TRON Legacy: The Mixtape is a brand new 18-track collection of Cadence Weapon rapping over some his favourite beats of late.

Pemberton recently described TRON Legacy: The Mixtape in an exclusive interview with "I wanted to do something similar to The Drought series by Lil’ Wayne, just rapping over beats that I really like…It's a back to basics kind of thing. I'm rapping over Gucci Mane beats and I rapped over an Arcade Fire song…My idea was to do a parody of your typical rap mixtape…I've been noticing with a lot of mixtapes is that rappers are talking about movies they had nothing to do with. T.I. has this mixtape where he's Photoshopped himself into the cover of Inception and there are all these skits, but really he had nothing to do with the movie." 

True to form, the first track opens the mixtape with Cadence talking about his involvement with the movie, all the work that went into the soundtrack, hanging out with Daft Punk and working with Jeff Bridges. The 18 tracks, brought together in a 40-minute collection includes Cadence Weapon dropping rhymes over beats by Gucci Mane, The Arcade Fire, Big Boi, Sleigh Bells, Daft Punk, Jay-Z, Raekwon, E-40 and features guest vocals by Buck 65, Shad, Subtitle, Birdapres, Kazmega, among others.

Available now exclusively at for whatever price you deem worthy.
