Ten best hip-hop shows in Denver this month

February is already off to a good start for hip-hop with a pair of great shows this past weekend, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis at Icelantic's Winter on the Rocks and Brother Ali with Prof, Danny Brown and Evidence at Cervantes'. Even excluding those shows, the rest of the month looks to be just as enticing, with series of shows from the likes of Cam'ron, Big Boi, Ras Kass, Latyrx, DJ Vadim and much more. Keep reading for a full rundown of the ten best hip-hop shows this month.

10. G-EAZY @ BLUEBIRD THEATER | TUE, 2/26 Ladies love G-Eazy. They absolutely adore him. Whether it's his lazy-smooth flow or Dapper Dan look, we don't know, but last time he was in Denver with Hoodie Allen on the Excellent Adventure Tour, bras were flying onstage like roses at a ballet. G-Eazy's 2011 mixtape Endless Summer first brought national attention to the rapper and is notable for his sample of Denver band Tennis's "Marathon" for the track "Waspy."

9. CHINGY @ ROXY THEATRE | SAT, 2/9 After his ubiquitous smash hit "Right Thurr" sprung a run of three albums certified at least gold, now six years have passed since his latest album, Hate It or Love It failed to crack the top ten. With 2012 came a new mixtape, Jackpot Back, and promises of a new album, No Risk No Reward for 2013.

8. SNOW THA PRODUCT @ ROXY THEATRE | SAT, 2/16 It may at first seem easy to dismiss Snow Tha Product as another Iggy Azalea or Kreayshawn-level gimmick because of her gender and unconventional appearance, but it gets harder and harder the more you listen to her. Make no mistake, Snow can ride a beat and she can rhyme, and she can rhyme fast, and, frankly, she's more intimidating than a lot of these so-called hard rappers nowadays.
