L.A. Unheard: The Cafeteria Line's hip-hop feast
Editor's note: Every week, our colleagues at Brand X's L.A. Unheard column unearth one of L.A.'s best undiscovered acts.
The band: The Cafeteria Line, a collaborative effort from MCs TiRon and Ayomari.
The sound: Like L.A. underground hip-hop contemporary Blu (who guested on TiRon's "MSTRD"), this duo forgoes empty braggadocio in favor of articulate and creative rhymes about real-life issues — such as girl problems, food and more girl problems. Both TiRon and Ayomari have nimble deliveries that hit the beat on point, whether it's a laid-back jazzy track ("The Do") or a window-rattler such as "No Wonder."
The details: Their debut full-length collaboration, "Sucker for Pumps," is on track for an early April release, and you can catch TiRon performing live with ScHoolboy Q at the Key Club on Friday.
The rest: Download the new track "No Wonder" over at Brand X.
