This Friday, an all-star cast of local rappers are coming together at Casselman's to benefit American Trash Republic's Concept Oner, who recently encountered some legal difficulties. Besides being a good opportunity for the hip-hop community to pitch in and help out one of its own, the show itself pretty much looks like a can't miss for local hip-hop fans.
In addition to a performance from Concept and ATR, BLKHRTS, SP Double, the Cadava Records crew, God's Forgotten, Key to the City and DJ Unison are all set to rock the joint. Tickets to the show, which is being hosted by Dent and takes place at 8 p.m on Friday, May 27 at Casselman's, are $10 (21+). If you haven't already, get your download on. American Trash Republic's latest banger, Los Maniac Bastards Mixtape Vol. 1, is available now for free download on Bandcamp. Also, we've got three pairs of tickets to the show. Wanna go? Hit us up. First three to respond win.
