Rafael Vigilantics


Portland, Oregon’s Rafael Vigilantics is turning the punk and hip hop worlds upside down. He first appeared, seemingly out of nowhere, on a bill with local hardcore punks (and future Horns Up Records labelmates) The Altarboys. Vigilantics won over the largely punk crowd, and within 6 months was opening for independent hip hop superstars like Dan Le Sac vs. Scroobius Pip and B. Dolan.

Dolan. Rafael Vigilantics on the cover of his album 'Bury Me Standing' His debut album Bury Me Standing transitions easily between blistering punk and straight up hip hop. While some hip hop fans may not be in to it, Vigilantics’ sound has struck a chord with punk rockers. Johnny X of punk news site DyingScene.com said of the track “Jolene” from Bury Me Standing, “Take it from a guy who typically hates hip-hop, the song is worth a listen.” Listening to the album, it’s pretty clear why Vigilantics has been embraced by the punk scene. On his collaboration with The Alterboys, “No Friends,” lyrics like “I’ve got no friends/Just best friends/And I’d stab any one of you motherf***ers for them” could have been lifted straight from a hardcore punk song.

Vigilantics sums it up best on his OurStage profile: “Bury Me Standing might not be the album for you if you already love hip hop, but it might be the album for you if you need a good place to start looking at a new side of it.” Read more on Last.fm.
