Mon. Oct. 8 | Get ready for a Tip-hop showdown. Gary Grice, the lyrical Genius behind the Wu-Tang Clan's grimy, eye-for-an-iambic pentameter, reissued a box set of his 1995 solo fencer Liquid Swords (Geffen). Michael Render, an OutKast acolyte, released what should be 2012's heavyweight champion, R.A.P. Music (Williams Street). Sweet Valley and Bear Hands open at Tipitina's.
