Hip-hop is a music genre that has been taken in a plethora of directions by a vast array of people. This show will epitomize some of the more unique directions that hip-hop has been taken with a little avant-garde electronic thrown in for variety.
As one of NOLA’s most notorious hip-hop acts, Boyfriend has slid out of the dark streets of the Crescent City and into the public eye. This sultry verbal assassin arms herself with female-empowered lyrics matched by a vicious delivery reminiscent of White Girl Mob. Boyfriend will showcase cuts from her “Love Your Boyfriend” EP, and she is guaranteed to set the Alchemy crowd ablaze with fresh rhymes.
Madd Wikkid will also be in town from the Big Easy. As one listens to the DJ’s mix and mashes, a clear definition of NOLA electronic is formed. His cuts are heavily influenced by a variety of jazz sounds that are able to enhance any mood imaginable.
North Carolina’s Mr. 88 will complete the trifecta. The hip-hop artist has been establishing his reputation across the South and beyond with an impeccable flow that weaves itself in and out of the beat.
