Seattle hip hop fans who happened to travel to the Northeast for college/employment/homelessness, this is your chance to rejoice. Next week, the Blue Scholars and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will be making tour stops in four Northeast locales. I've linked the facebook page for the New York event (since it's the one I will likely be attending), but you can find information for all four dates here. I've probably seen the Blue Scholars eight times since freshman year of high school and they are consistently one of the best live acts I've seen (and rumor has it that they are close to releasing a new album). As for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, the emcee-producer duo released my favorite project of 2009, The Vs. EP, and I have heard nothing but good things about their live performance. For the New York date, the groups will be performing with local NYC act Outasite.
Peace, Love, & Hip Hop,
