about

Twin Cities bred rap-duo LITERATI combine disparate influences and a disdain for modern day culture to evoke one big middle finger to the world. While living in Sweden, Mercies May cut his teeth as a poet and musician collaborating on projects with Novelist Johannes Anyuru and the band that would later become indie darling LITTLE DRAGON. After being deported back to the states in 2009, Mercies reconnected with long time friend and early mentor Caesar of Electronic/hip hop group OUT OF BOUNDS, a mainstay in the Minneapolis community for his percussive, rapid-fire delivery and progressive approach to production. Intent on crafting a style greater than the sum of it’s parts they began making beats in tandem, creating an exciting new sound and in 2011 released an EP “Real Pain For My Sham Friends” as a teaser of things to come.

2013’s Fait Accompli attempts to encapsulate the disenchantment of adulthood; the story of two men finding their way through an increasingly marginalized human experience. The first half of the album builds in intensity, culminating with a riotous mosh pit on “Tear Gas,” a turning point on the record symbolizing a generation fed up with being lied to. On “The Future” Caesar laments, “With pinned eyelids we sit silent/ We keep buying the speeches of tyrants/ Preachers teaching the sheep compliance/ And we the people can’t deny that...” Fait Accompli shares a cab with hopelessness but ditches on the bill, instead rediscovering the tangibility in believing in something.
