"Hailing from the South-Side of Minneapolis, Kanser is one of the most decorated underground hip-hop acts to come out of a city known for its endless pool of talent. Kanser is comprised of New MC (Zach Combs) and Unicus (Harry Philibert) on the mic with DJ Elusive (Erik Dorf) laying the tracks. In addition to sharing the stage with many Minneapolis legends, such as Atmosphere (Rhymesayers), POS (Rhymesayers/Doomtree), and Heiruspecs (Razor and Tie), they’ve also been known to rock the mic with many of today’s chart toppers like Cee Lo (of Gnarls Barkley), Clipse, and Juvenile.

They have a resume that spans nearly ten years. It began in 1997 with their Minneapolis classic “NOW”, which was recorded on Ant of Atmosphere’s 4-Track. Numerous singles and six full lengths later, we await the release of their newest full length album, “Future Retro Legacy”. The album boasts exclusive production by Big Jess of the Unknown Prophets and features guest spots by Midwest underground greats like AD of The Crest and Pee Wee Dred of Dred I Dread. The result: a soulful and classically Minneapolis sound that remind us why we liked Midwest underground hip-hop in the first place."
