Citizen Cope at Rialto Theater

Why see Citizen Cope?

Citizen cope on tour

Citizen Cope has been pursuing his laid-back brand of hip-hop-inflected rock for over a decade now. He began his music career as a DJ for Washington rap collective Basehead, and his R 'n' B inclinations have stayed with him throughout his solo work, creating a beat-driven sound that was way ahead of its time. 

His seminal record, The Clarence Greenwood Recordings, was released over a decade ago but still remains his most impressive achievement, a record that blends together reggae grooves, East Coast beats, and intimate lyricism into a complete whole. Among its highlights are "Son's Gonna Rise" which features Carlos Santana providing some sunny guitar lines, and "Bullet and a Target", which tackled gun violence and terrorism in its stream of consciousness verses.

Top notch

Citizen Cope did not disappoint. Mr. Greenwood sang his heart out in his cool, chill demeanor. The band was amazing. The sound was perfect at the House of Blues. It was a memorable night of incredible, body chill inducing music. My love for Citizen Cope has been magnified after seeing them live. House of Blues was a great venue with a wonderful dinner to enjoy prior to the euphoric feeling that came during the show ... Read more
