“If you’re so inclined, you could convincingly argue that David Bowie might have influenced rap more than any rock star other than Prince,” wrote music journalist Jeff Weiss in one of the many eulogies that surfaced following the rock icon’s death after an 18-month battle with cancer. “Bowie’s approach shared the same fundamental principle as hip-hop or really any good art: do what you want.” In its second year, this hip-hop fundraiser for UNC-Chapel Hill’s Lineberger Cancer Center has extra cause to throw up a middle finger to a terminal illness that has claimed our heroes, family members and friends. In the process, you’ll have the opportunity to familiarize yourself with local artists like Skyblew, whose imagination does suggest a Bowie influence. —Eric Tullis
