A Weekend of Good Hip Hop

15 Sep

In case you haven’t heard, my favorite hip hop artist Lupe Fiasco will be performing this Friday at the Merriweather Post Pavilion. The cheapest seats are $36.00. Miguel, Waleʹ, Phil Adeʹ, and Tinie Tempah will be performing as well.

And I just learned this week that my favorite artist from my days in undergrad, Black Star will be performing at The Fillmore. Those tickets are $50.00.

I remember when I saw Lupe (AFRAM) and Black Star (College Park) for free. Those were the days! Here are a couple of tunes that resonate with me (Hurt Me Soul and Brown Skin Lady).

“I’m thinking golly, God me guard me from the ungodly.”

“We’re not dealing with the European standard of beauty tonight. Turn off the TV put the magazine away. Look in the mirror and tell me what you see.  I see the evidence of divine presence.”    (What?!)
