DC Hip-Hop

I had the pleasure of DJing a happy hour for Words Beats & Life recently, as the opening event for the organization's Wu Tang-themed "Philanthrobeat" fundraiser. It didn't pop off like crazy or anything, but there were some good people in the house. And I know they were treated to some good music on all accounts. Part of the theme of the happy hour was to showcase some local blogs, to support the independent voices in the greater DC community that are supporting dope music from our area and beyond. So, part of my set included music from some of my favorite DC hip-hop artists, and I figured I'd share some of them with you here. Check it out..
The Package - Look Out Below
Tabi Bonney - Duhh Diamond District - In the Ruff, Streets Wont Let Me Chill
Asheru - BMIG Kev Brown - Work in Progress XO - Hands Up K-Beta - Inglorious Beta (Intro) Y Society - Never Off (On & On)
And last but not least, I want to shine a light on this song here curated specifically for Words Beats & Life's "Bumrush The Boards" annual Hip-Hop Chess tournament by my man DJ RBI...shout out to RBI, DJ 2-Tone Jones everyone at WBL and all the artists involved..
