Uptown is alive with the sound of Hip-Hop. On Friday, October 19th, I had the distinct pleasure of attending the WHIN By Any Means Hip-Hop function at Empire Fashion Boutique (4795 Broadway), put together by the one and only Tellie Floyd and his team and ably hosted by my man Mike Jones. The event for me was an epiphany, to be honest; I had slept on the amount of new talent when it comes to Hip-Hop Uptown.
On top of the new artists that performed, the homie Audubon blessed the mic and Dark, who has been almost single-handedly holding Uptown Hip-Hop down for a long time, came through and showed and received love. I also have to shout out the entire I.O.D. squad who brought a lot of energy and swag to their performances.
All in all, it was a great event. Stay tuned for more info on the next one… Miss it at your own peril. You have been warned!
