Strange Powers on Armageddon and what he's been up to since returning to the Mile High City

Known to early local hip-hop heads as Shag One and, more recently, Strange Powers, Josh Powers doesn't fit into the mold of a typical hip-hop cat. He embraces his individuality and honors his own unique global view of music and ideology through his creative endeavors -- from more traditional hip-hop to electro-pop and everything else in between. In the process, he's offered some of the most groundbreaking music around town, which, fittingly, doesn't follow a standard hip-hop template.
