38th Square's on the grind giving local hip-hop much deserved shine

If you're a hip-hop head, you're probably already, ahem, hip to this. If not, though, boy, are you in for a treat. Since launching this past fall, Rachel Romero (aka Miss Rachel), the latest addition to our growing Backbeat family, and her partner, DJ Lazy Eyez, have been producing a compelling video series called 38th Square. So far, the pair have profiled some key figures in the local hip-hop scene, including Es-Nine (above), Opt One, Jolt and Low Key (after the jump). Got some time to kill this morning? This is just what the doctor ordered. Grab a cup of coffee, and get after it!
