Waiting for Soundset sucks doesn't it? Lucky for us, Rhymesayers is taking over the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis, MN on December 4th to showcase 20 years of music. From the beginning, artist collective and record label Rhymesayers Entertainment has been independently releasing music and nurturing the careers of artists like Atmosphere and Brother Ali. From early mix-tape style cassettes, to the debut album Beyond’s Comparison in 1996, to recent label addition Prof whose new release Liability drops this Friday; Rhymesayers has been producing music and representing artists for twenty years.
On the evening of Friday, December 4, 2015, the concert will include special performances by (in alphabetical order): Abstract Rude, Aesop Rock, Atmosphere, Battlecats, BK One, Blueprint, Boom Bap Project, Brother Ali, deM atlaS, Dilated Peoples, DJ Abilities, Evidence, Felt, Freeway, Grayskul, Grieves, Hail Mary Mallon, I Self Devine, Jake One, K-Salaam, Los Nativos, Micranots, Mr. Dibbs, Musab, P.O.S, Prof, Soul Position, The Uncluded, and Toki Wright.
Arena seats and the entire General Admission floor are only $20.00 (plus venue facility fees, ticketing fees and taxes) to celebrate twenty years of Rhymesayers! Limited VIP packages available (with all the goodies) for $100.00 (plus venue facility fee, ticketing fees and taxes).
This is a Hip-Hop event you won't want to miss. I am going to try and make it from New York City because I've been a fan of Rhymesayers Entertainment for over seven years. This lineup is packed with artists who are top-50 all time. If you can't make this show, you NEED to go to the Soundset Festival.
