The Break Presents: The Cranberry Show

Standout: “Cinema”

Also Check Out: “Last Score”

And: $10

Name: The Cranberry Show (Arcane & Young Focus)

Age: Arcane, 23 and Young Focus, 24

Reppin’: Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Our style and/or skills have been compared to: The illegitimate
child of The Beastie Boys meets N.E.R.D. But a less hip hop version of
Afrika Bambaataa and the Zulu Nation. Most people classify us as “Alternative HipHop”. We classify ourselves as gorilla pimps.

Our standout records and/or moments have been: Everyone else seems to like our song “B.M.H” off our Paranormal Karaoke album. We just dropped the first visual for the album on YouTube, its a song called, “CINEMA.”

We’re gonna change the game by: Bringing creativity back. We came
to break that tradition and have a lot of fun doing it. Creativity aint dead these niggas just scared.

We’d Like to Work With: Plain Pat (Hes a genius)… Justin Vernon of Bon Iver (its a Wisconsin thing)… Pharrell (For obvious reasons)… Lupe Fiasco (He’s one of the best lyricists to grace our planet).

Our goal in hip-hop is: We really just want to expand the horizon of Hip-Hop. Make it cool to be yourself again, and maybe become legendary doing it. Plus trick everyone into thinking we’re the greatest hip hop group in the world.

We’re gonna be the next: Voices of the a young nation that has no boundaries when it comes to being artistic. But if that doesn’t work we’ll be the next drunk uncles at your family picnic.
