Minneapolis-Based Rap Crew 'Shredders' Hitting Up Paper Tiger


  • Zoe Prinds
San Antonio, it would seem, does a better job of supporting the Minneapolis hip-hop scene than it does its own. With the popularity, over the last few years, of shows from the likes of Lizzo, Atmosphere, and Brother Ali, SA has consistently shown its love for the unlikely hotbed of indie hip-hop activity, much of which is centered around the influential Rhymesayers label.

On Saturday, local rap fans will have another excellent excuse to be on their Twin Cities shit: Shredders. The relatively new rap crew, which is comprised of about half of the members of the celebrated indie hip-hop collective Doomtree, will come to town touring behind its debut album Dangerous Jumps, which came out back in fall 2017. If you like thoughtful subject matter and delirious wordplay riding atop dark and spindly production, Shredders comes highly recommended. Full disclosure: Current music writer Chris Conde will open for Shredders on this bill.
