Positivity will rule at the Honest Pint June 26
A perfect storm of beat, rhyme and flow will descend on The Honest Pint on Thursday, June 26 with the second edition of The Chattanooga All-Stars of Hip Hop. This is no ordinary bill where one act follows another, but rather a collaborative effort in which some of the best and brightest of the local scene share the stage (and the DJ), equally bouncing from tracks you know to extended freestyles and never-before heard material.
This is the second such show, the first being at JJ’s Bohemia last December, and in that short time the number of participating artists has more than doubled. Plans are in the works to make this a twice-yearly event, promoting growth within the scene and enabling established artists to give a boost to up-and-comers.
The only requirement for participation is to abstain from themes that promote violence, the degradation of women or obsession with material possessions and monetary gain. Love, unity and the positive qualities of hip hop culture are the order of the evening.
The show promises to deliver with the inclusion of such notables as Collin Greens, Coreo and Déjà vu from Stoop Kidz, Christian Bearisto from Kids From Across the Street, Prophecy and Spokesman from Wise Council, Divine Mind Tactic, Floami Fly, Moondogg Sikes, Siri A, SoCro, Warner MC and the always lovely Eroc from the Mdahts. Common Criminal is the DJ for the evening.
