Kutt Calhoun Gives Details On His Solo Tour And Upcoming EP

Strange Music's Kutt Calhoun talks hitting the road by himself on the "Callin' My Name" tour and going in a new direction for his upcoming EP.

After putting in work for over 82 show dates as part of Tech N9ne’s All 6’s And 7’s Tour in 2011, some might have been surprised by not seeing Strange Music emcee Kutt Kalhoun on multiple performance dates for this year’s Hostile Takeover Tour. But there’s no rift within the family. Kutt Kalhoun has been occupied holding down his own, solo touring duties.

“I’ve been doing my own dates since February, as a matter of fact,”  Kalhoun explained during a recent interview via Strange Music’s website. “I’m doing basically two to three shows each week. This is where I always wanted to be at, and now here I am. It’s almost a confirmation of my inner thoughts of where I felt I should be anyway. It feels good to look and see your name on the marquee and everybody else is the opener.”

Kalhoun added that he’s been crossing paths with his label mates as they take breaks from their Hostile Takeover duties. He even joined Tech N9ne and the rest of the crew during a spot date in Minneapolis, Minnesota. While his 2010 effort, Raw And Un-Kutt produced a visit to Billboard magazine’s Top 200 albums chart, fans haven’t had an official Kutt release since 2011’s Red-Headed Stepchild.

“You thought you had seen all of me, but nah…you’ve probably only seen a fraction,” Kalhoun added. “Me and Michael “Seven” Summers—we’re doing some shit that ain’t been done before here at Strange Music. I was supposed to be doing Flames Part Deuce and another mixtape with B.G., and that kind of got put on the backburner due to what we’re about to do now.”

    Kutt has bars for DAYS and is, perhaps, better lyrically than even Tech. Kutt's verses on Tech's albums often blow me away. The problem is, he hasn't made a single great album. Many of the songs sound the same, there isn't a ton of variety and you end up skipping all but a few cuts. I respect his grind though. I saw him recently on his solo tour. He played to a fairly small crowd and said before hand that, for reasons beyond his control, he wasn't getting paid for that show. BUT, since the crowd was fairly small he, instead, got down on the floor, told everyone to form a circle around him, and performed great set while a lot of the kids around him rapped along with every word.

    Fuck Strange Music. These coons don't know how to make good music. Kutt is wack juice. The only niggas on the label making good music are Jay Rock and Brotha Lynch Hung.
