Kevie Durham, aka rapper KL Tha General, could sell a CD to anyone.
“He had a speech that was out of this world,” said his friend and partner Adonis Williams. “He would go up to people and say ‘hey you support music?’ Then he would give this crazy speech that would get anyone to buy what he was into.
“Before he even went downtown he would look at me and go, ‘I’m about to make $40 selling CDs.’ And he would.”

Ahead of their show at 1stBank Center on Nov. 21, we talk to Flosstradamus about genre limitations, their second rise and their “Juggalo movement of fans.”
The trajectory of Flosstradamus’ success has run parallel to the recent popularity of trap music — an electronic dance music genre whose signature hi-hat rolls and syncopated beats derive from hip-hop. In recent years, the duo’s name has begun to carry almost as much weight in the community as Diplo or Dillon Francis. Nonetheless, when Reverb caught up with Flosstradamus’ Josh Young and Curt Cameruci to discuss the past, present and future of the EDM act, they made it clear that they’re not afraid to step outside the confines of any genre – and went as far as to remark that their fan base, which they compared to ICP, would support them no matter their creative direction. On Nov. 21, Chicago-based hip-hop/trap duo Flosstradamus plays the 1stBank Center on the fourth stop on their HDYNation tour alongside rappers G-Eazy, Curtis Williams, Iamsu! and hip-hop collective Two-9.
