MC Wonder Brown (of Scribbling Idiots) and MC Till teamed up last year amidst their numerous other projects to do some collabo tour dates as Kings of Tragedy. On Saturday, the duo will appear at Rohs Street Cafe in Clifton Heights to celebrate the release of their new self-titled full-length CD.

Till’s beats and both artists’ crafty, creative production blends the old-school with the new, sample-heavy and deceptively simple. The twosome’s sense of humor pops up on the running skits on the album, which are all about whether they should put skits on the album. Meanwhile, closing cut “Jesus” comes closest to didacticism, mixing some Gospel and Soul samples with the message that Jesus is in everything we do.
