Fake Four recording artist Sadistik lives up to his nom de guerre in his latest self-directed video, “Cult Leader”. “Meant to cause discomfort,” this is a hell of a way to introduce the veteran MC’s upcoming album, Ultraviolet (due July 1), which features such hip hop luminaries as Nacho Picasso, Tech N9ne, and the late Eyedea.

Sadistik’s Twitter page lists “Suicide Capitol” as the MC’s current location. There’s a segment of area hip-hop artists who’ve been knowing it’s not all coffee shop philosophy and Alki barbecues under this perpetual cloud cover — count Sadistik as one of them. Flowers For My Father is an in memoriam of the dude’s padre who passed on after the MC’s debut in 2008 (The Balancing Act). This album is a bitter pill to swallow, a dichotomous answer to the half-full glasses Seattle rap fans are used to raising these days. It takes it all types, I say.
