Elements continues to bring the best in hip-hop talent from the Southeast and beyond. Mr. 88 is a familiar face on the Elements stage. In fact, he has established quite a reputation in the Mobile Bay area with his “catchy hooks and vibrant beats.” His verbal prowess has allowed 88 to enjoy regular rotations of his tracks “So Many Girls” and “Gotta Do Better” on WBLX. The crowd will enjoy a barrage of spontaneous rhythmic flow from this promising rapper.
Local hip-hop superstar Beamin will be making an appearance at this installment of the monthly showcase. One-half of the hip-hop duo Beamin & Timmy, the rapper’s lyrical talent is unique in the Azalea City. He delivers word play that can instantly shift from smooth to light speed.
Local up-and-comer Southern Bliss is also set to perform. An urban poet with an arsenal of life experience to fuel his verbal creations, he has spent years honing his skills. Now, Bliss is eagerly showcasing his work whenever he can.
DJ Elevate and DJ Ream will be on hand to spin tracks for this trio of hip-hop talent.
