Martinez is noncommittal when asked if this week's two shows will be his last in Arizona before he heads north.

"If something comes up, I might do it," he says. "But as far as I'm concerned, I'm not going out of my way. It takes a lot of effort and work to get shows . . . I really just don't see a point to going out and booking more shows and doing more stuff if my focus isn't going to be here."

Still, Martinez has no plans to forget his Arizona roots.

"My family will still be here. It's always gonna be with me. When I go to Minneapolis, I'm saying I'm from Arizona. This post-rap was made here. Wherever I take it, the only reason post-rap exists is because of Arizona. It may not have been the prettiest reasons, but that is exactly why [it exists]. I'll never be able to turn my back on Arizona."

Last time I checked Minneapolis isn't in the woods.
