Difficult to categorize and difficult to market, KC Flightt is a unique rapper who has remained in obscurity. Flightt, unlike most rappers, doesn't always rhyme, and can be quite angular and abstract. On his imaginative and visionary debut album, In Flightt, he draws on influences ranging from jazz to house music -- and is considerably more musical and melodic than most rappers. Not terribly easy to absorb, this cerebral effort must be listened to several times in order to be fully appreciated. In the mid-'90s, Flightt resurfaced in the band of jazz saxophonist Bill Evans (who has been featuring rappers in much the same way jazz artists feature singers) but wasn't nearly as cerebral as he is on In Flightt.
