[INDIE HIP-HOP] On his own, California underground rap vet Scarub hasn't put out a full-length album since 2006, but that’s cool: If the dude never recorded another thing ever again, he still has enough material to tour for the next decade and switch up the set list every night. The former Armon Collins initially made his name in the ’90s as a member of Three Melancholy Gypsies with MURS and Eligh, which eventually merged with Oakland cult faves Mystik Journeymen to create the Living Legends, and between them, 3MG, his solo work and collaborative records released under the names Righteous Brothers and Afro Classics, the heady MC has got a lot of music to choose from. But that isn’t to say he's simply resting on his laurels: In truth, like everything affiliated with Living Legends, Scarub’s airy, cosmo-jazz beats and slick, abstract rhymes were so future-forward everyone else is just now catching up.
