The Riot Room's patio stage at The Pitch Music Showcase
in early August was a nice crash course in local hip-hop talent, and this bill (which includes two overlaps in Reach and Stik Figa) is just about as solid. If the gangsta style of Chief Keef (in town Saturday at the Uptown) isn't your flavor of rap, the more thoughtful and playful, conscious hip-hop that the acts on this bill - Heartfelt Anarchy
, Stik Figa
and the Abnorm
- are laying down might be more your speed.
