Practically a legend of hip hop, RJD2 headlines the Echoplex on April 18. RJD2 was too out there for record labels in the 90s, but the new millennia gave him freedom to produce instrumentals and weird hip hop. In 2002, “Dead Ringer”, RJD2’s first album was released and launched his career. He toured the world from Europe, Japan, and the US several times, opened for DJ Shadow, and gained the attention from David Lynch and Mark Ecko, all within two years. In 2004, he released, “Since We Last Spoke” and headlined his first tour through the US and Europe. He was toured with countless rappers and singers. RJD2 is doing it all, which everyone can admire. Starting off as a rookie to an independent musician. Who knows what he will do for his next album, but we’re excited to see what happens next.
