Love Is Local Vol 2

When: Wed., Sept. 8, 9 p.m. 2010

Sample from this hip-hop smorgasboard as a Hopscotch Music Festival liftoff. Imaginative duo Freebass 808 meshes Camp Lo emcee Suede's eccentric, intergalactic rhymes with producer Apple Juice Kid's trippy, teeming soundscapes. Elsewhere is a slew of promising local lyricists. In the absence of Kooley High, King Mez just may be Raleigh rap royalty at the ripe age of 20, divulging stories from the corner in intimate detail. Blaze the Sky similarly spins cautionary tales with a touch of swagger, while Kourvioisier rips the mic nonstop with vicious might and wall-to-wall wordplay. Dow Jones' polished flow and beats sound poised for the big time, while Tyler Hipnosis' ambitious efforts hold much potential but could handle some refinement. DJ Flash of Little Brother spins. This night was curated by Independent Weekly hip-hop critic Eric Tullis.—Spencer Griffith
