New York Plays Host To “I Am The Underground” Show February 12th

New York City is about to play host to the first ever “I Am The Underground” concert on February 12th. The concert is an effort to organize independent and unsigned artists who are making noise outside of Hip-Hop’s mainstream and to expose them to the rest of the media and music industry. The artists tapped to participate include Skyzoo, Sha Stimuli, Nina B, Torae, City Scholar, Sic Osyrus, Lexx9eleven, 2ew Gunn Ciz, Farrah Burns, No Good People, The League, Fev Eligante’, Lydia Caesar, Remo Da Rapstar, Harlem, A-Pinks and Omar Wilson.

The show’s organizers Franchyze Bless (A&R/ Inasirkl Music Group), DWI (Next Up Radio/ Producer/ Engineer) and DJ Bedtyme357 (Remy Ma’s DJ aka Mr. I Am The Underground) are not hyping this as event as a battle, showcase or anything judged. It’s simply meant to be exposure for these artists. If you ask me, it sure sounds like a showcase, but definitely worth checking out. The event is being hosted by Hot 97 and Shade45 radio personality Dee Vazquez. So if you’re in NYC on the 12th, stop by Don Hill’s to check it out.
