Smoke DZA, Mr Muthafuckin Exquire, Cashius Green & Pheo, Nakim

When: Sun., Oct. 14, 9 p.m. 2012

New York was once the place for expressionistic hip-hop, but the city spent the 2000s lagging behind locales such as Atlanta and New Orleans as dusty samples lost out to the more varied sounds of the South. With the help of the Internet, though, NYC rap is returning: Harlem's Smoke DZA, capo to chillaxed stoner Curren$y, is a worker-bee wordsmith with an ear for intricate production. Brooklyn's Mr. Muthafuckin' Exquire recalls the fat-boy fun of Chubb Rock and bitter boasts of Wu-Tang. It will be fun, but not too fun; it wouldn't be a New York rap show if that were the case. Opening the 9 p.m. show are Cashius Green & Pheo and Nakim. —Brandon Soderberg
