If your a fan of the late 80's-mid 90's "True School" era of hip hop than get ready to break out your Cross Colors overalls and Batman T-shirts for the Fifth Annual Akron Hip Hop Showcase.
The finalized lineup is:
De La Soul
Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth
Jeru The Damaja
That was a frickin' awesome bill in 1994 and it's still a darn good one in 2012.
What: Fifth Annual Akron Hip Hop Showcase
When: Sunday, September 2
Where: Lock 3 Live Park, 200 S. Main St.
In case you've forgotten or simply don't know who these folks are to hip hop history is a quick refresher through the magic of YouTube.
Also, I'd post Jeru's most famous tune "Come Clean" but there are just enough unclean lyrics to make it a no-no.
Just know that "Come Clean" is quintessential mid 90's East Coast Boom Bap and one of (the record producer) DJ Premier's best loved beats...
