Maybe you’re having one of those days when you feel like you need to stomp someone — or one of those evenings when the only thing that will make you feel better is a cognizant dip into swells of malt liquor and Southern-playalistic pseudo-thugged-out crunk music. Bone Crusher is here for you.
The Atlanta-based rapper of behemoth proportions has made his way north, and nothing will stop him from bringing his unique brand of unapologetic, in-your-face music to Eugene.
This is the man who gave us the compelling, somewhat perplexing hit single “Never Scared,” off his 2006 debut album. After that unforgettable ballad, in which the anthem-like chorus is chanted so resolutely, you too realize that you “ain’t never scared.”
Yes, technically that chorus line (“I ain’t never scared”) is a double negative, meaning that the artist is implying he is, in point of fact, sometimes scared. But that’s not the point. Don’t be a hater; you know what he’s saying, yo. And even if you don’t, it doesn’t matter because Bone Crusher has a stage show that lives up to his name. And there will be tons of other talent on stage to check out, too. The evening will be hosted by DJ Smuve and includes performances by Monti On The Mic, Mike Snow, Hero Fame, Blue Nose Music, Rx Tha Scriptripper, Seattle’s Most Wanted and more.
Bone Crusher plays 9 pm Friday, March 2, at Diablo’s; $10.
