Raleigh rap made some important moves in 2014, with Rapsody and King Mez penetrating outside markets. Meanwhile, area foot soldiers, like the ones on this bill, forged ahead to try and reshape the scene’s identity. Team Madison’s gimmicky showmanship was a highlight of Hopscotch’s rap lineup, Sonyae dropped her vicious debut LP, and for the fourth year in a row, Ghost Dog, Tuscon and Eternal anchored N.C. State’s weekly rap cypher, increasing their own Triangle visibility. Little of this would have been possible without local support from acts like St. Nickel, Skyblew and the night’s birthday sport, Samson, who must be a jolly good fellow if he has this many talented friends willing to rap just for a slice of cake. —Eric Tullis
