Big Beat

Genaside II helped create jungle. Now it's moving on.

"I've had a passion for hip-hop, I used to bleed hip-hop, but the last couple of years, especially the last year, I've become quite disillusioned by it," he says. "It's that macho, egotistical thing about hip-hop that's gone on from day one: 'Let's all talk about guns and hold our balls.' When there's a gang of 12 kids and one of them wants to paint instead of play football, it takes a big man to say, 'Look, I'm going to be a painter, not a footballer.' The first one gets his head kicked in, but after a bunch of them start doing it, then you get some painting going on."

Genaside II performs Sunday, February 27, at Numbers, 300 Westheimer, at 8 p.m., with Lords of Acid and Praga Khan. Tickets are $17. For more information, call (713)526-8338.
