Hip-Hop Showcase

February 14, 2016 - 10:09am
The artists invited by Syracuse University’s Black Artist League brought an intimate hip-hop showcase experience to the audience on Feb. 12.

A few hours before the doors would open, the artists invited to the Black Artist League’s hip-hop showcase started to conduct mic-check. Over snippets of tracks coming on and off of the loudspeakers, Red Eyes the Don, of Union, New Jersey, and Static Shocca of the group Penthaüs Savages, of Newark, New Jersey, said to the audience that college shows restricted what could be performed in terms of content, but they said they still enjoyed doing any show.
