Raekwon, Ghostface, Dave East & Azealia Banks to Headline World Underground Festival

This is a Hip Hop Fest you don’t want to miss!

World Underground is having their Inaugural Festival this week at the Melrose Ballroom in Queens this Wednesday through Friday, August 29th – 31st, featuring Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Dave East, Azealia Banks & over 40 of the top underground emcees in the game. The festival was created by Armani Cooper, co-creator of Team Backpack.  

Besides the headliners, there will also be

  • Music Conference (Guest Speakers from Lyricist Lounge and GPME agency)
  • International Emcee competition (10k$ grand prize and tour)
  • 3-Day Concert Series (featuring 40+ of your favorite EMCEES!)
  • Beat battles
  • Live hip-hop ciphers

I have to give it to them, they have great headliners, as well as actual underground artists as their title advertises. Many of these acts I have never heard of – hence “underground” – but at the same time, there are enough who I know to be legit, such as Locksmith, Ren Thomas, Mad Squablz, Chris Rivers and the Skull N Tones DJ crew, to name a few, that I expect to hear quality. They are exposing underground artists to new audiences, which is really what a fest that claims to be “underground” is supposed to do, salute to everyone involved.

You can get TICKETS to individual performances you care about, get a 1 day pass for $100 or a 3 day pass for $200. $10,000 for the Emcee Competition is a nice purse, so that should be a heated competition! More info, a detailed line up and instructions for the Emcee competition can be found on their website: worldunderground.com.

Here are some more artists and DJ’s you will see at the festival:

Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap (Trailer)

tech n ice

Back in the days when i was a teenager… myself and GMS (MCMI co-owners) met Kevin Fitzgerald aka DJ Organic in central park at a summer stage concert. He was traveling around filming what would later become the critically acclaimed Documentary “Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme” We introduced him to the MC’s we knew, took him to the events we threw and frequented, helped plug him in to the new york Hip Hop scene and even made cameos along with PackFM, Mr.Mecc, Substantial & PH – our fellow crew members from “The Plague” Flash Forward over a decade and a new documentary with the same great feel, love (and many of the same artist) directed by Ice-T is about to hit the big screen….

Synopsis:
Ice-T takes us on an intimate journey into the heart and soul of hip-hop with the legends of rap music. This performance documentary goes beyond the stardom and the bling to explore what goes on inside the minds, and erupts from the lips, of the grandmasters of rap. Recognized as the godfather of Gangsta rap, Ice-T is granted unparalleled access to the personal lives of the masters of this artform that he credits for saving his life. Interspersed with the performers’ insightful, touching, and often funny revelations are classic raps, freestyle rhymes, and never before heard a cappellas straight from the mouths of the creators. What emerges is a better understanding of, and a tribute to, an original American art form that brought poetry to a new generation.

Be sure to watch Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme in Full HERE

Shout out to my brother Keith “Wild Child” Middleton for the assist!
