Rappers who sing are generally in two camps. There's the off-key, humorous thug croon of a Ghostface Killah or Erick Sermon. Then there are cats like Mos Def who can carry a tune, don't try to over-achieve and lace some memorable melodies. Black Spade might be at the top of a third group: rappers whose sung vocals match their prodigious lyrical talent. Black Spade, who comes from a hungry St. Louis scene, is also a wiz behind the boards; he produced every note himself on his debut full-length "To Serve With Love." Joining Black Spade tonight for his debut D.C. performance at Liv is New York's soultronica vocalist Peter Hadar and Washington's own Wes Felton.
