Lyrics cannot be divorced from hip hop, which is why all time hip hop artistes like the late American rapper, Christopher Wallace, best known as The Notorious B.I.G laid emphasis on their lyrical style.
He had been described as possibly the most skilful ever on the mic with lyrical topics and themes described as a mixture of autobiographical details about crime and violence with emotional honesty.
Thus the March edition of Str8 Up Hip Hop to be hosted by Andre Blaze and tagged Lyricism 101, will be a platform to appreciate lyrics in hip hop.Cool DJ Jimmy Jatt will hold down a definitive B.I.G tribute and a
special preview session from Modenine’s Alphabetical Order.
The event which will hold at Koga Studios, Oregun Road, Ikeja on Saturday, March 28, 2013 with admission ticket of N5000, will also feature breath-taking B-boy and emcee battle sessions as well as
graffiti art by Uprizn.
There will also be performances by Butafly (TBB), Dolapo, Phenom and Five Mics while DJ Ozee will be on the wheels of steel. Red carpet for the event starts at 5pm.
Str8 up Hip hop is a production of Now Muzik En.Core in partnership with Beat 99.9 fm.
