Underground hip hop fans rejoice! Hosted by Miahmine, JudahOne Promotions presents emcee Rakaa Iriscience of Dilated Peoples, a Los Angeles-based trio formed in 1992 (likened to Jurassic 5 et al), which earned some mainstream notoriety after a 2004 collaboration with Kanye West. In addition to emcee Rakaa, Tassho Pearce (a.k.a. EMIRC) with DJ Taco, as well as Revolutionary Habitat and Mo Illa Pillaz will perform. (Oh, and if you’re a Twitter addict like we are, you can follow Rakaa @TheRealRakaa.) Tickets are available at judahonepromotions.eventbrite.com.
