Rusty Redenbacher is a Naptown institution. The man has been cranking out consistently thought-provoking hip-hop since Mudkids dropped 4-Track Mind when I was in sixth grade. His album with local teacher and emcee Mr. Kinetik was one of the hip-hop releases of 2011 that I could legitimately latch on to (SEE: Video: Rusty Redenbacher & Mr. Kinetik “Cashin’ In”). Late yesterday, Russ dropped a video for “Iron Man Monster Fatory” from his latest release The Tinkerer. Yes, the computer-generated bursts of flames are ridiculous, but, as with anything that Rusty releases, we must place the tongue firmly within the cheek. The album release party for The Tinkerer will be held this Saturday at Daddy Real’s The Place. Those that pay the $10 cover will receive a hard copy of the release.
