Edo.G Organizes Boston’s First Annual Hip-Hop Unity Fest

boston-fest.jpgLegendary Boston MC, Edo.G, has organized the first annual Boston Hip-Hop Unity Fest. According to the Boston Globe, the event will take place on Wednesday, May 30 at the Paradise Rock Club and will feature performances from Mr. Lif, Akrobatik, 7L & Esoteric, Special Teamz, Krumb Snatcha, Termanology, Dre Robinson and Jake The Snake. “Boston has always been about cliques when it comes to hip-hop,” Edo.G tells the Boston Globe. “What I tried to do was to get acts from all parts of the city and bring them together. There are a lot of talented people out there, but fans really can never see them on one bill.” The goal of the Unity Fest is to promote peace in the city and reinvigorate the Boston hip-hop scene, which was never been showcased on a national or mainstream level. “There’s a lot of bad blood and violence in the city these days,” longtime underground MC, Esoteric, tells the Boston Globe. “Hopefully the idea of unity really doesn’t have to really be limited to music and can be more about Boston.”

    lol @ never hearing of Edo.G – how old are you 12? Stop watching mtv and actually listen to real hiphop. Mr. lif, akrobatick and 7L & Eso have been huge in the underground for years. Termanology is one of the best young mcs in the game. Krumb Snatcha was down with Gangstar. Your the reason why hip-hop is dead. None of yall young kids know shit about the culture. its embarassing.

    The funny thing is, I went to this and it was dope, but the best performance of the night was by D-Tension. He out did all these so called big names and was also a funny ass host.
