Tonight’s the night. The Famous Factory’s new live show series kicks off in Brooklyn, New York in a matter of hours. Founded by hip-hop mover and shaker Sickamore, and in association with XXL, the first concert will be held at Williamsburg’s Public Assembly, featuring performances by XXL Freshman alum, Curren$y, Cam’ron’s new rhyme partner, Vado, [click here] Duck Down rap vet, Sean Price and Tommy Hilfiger’s rapping son, Rich Hil.
This will be the first of a monthly Famous Factory series of shows across the country for ages 16 and up, which will highlight the different forms of hip-hop, from underground sounds to gangsta heat, to the new school’s downtown cool. The Famous Factory Show brings Internet artists with the biggest buzz to perform live in front of the fans responsible for these rappers’ online success. It also allows teens (ages 16 and up), who often don’t get to attend live performances, to see some of their favorite artists and enjoy a good hip-hop performance.
Sponsored by okayplayer.com, Decon and Coat of Arms, the first Famous Factory Show will be tonight (May 28) at Public Assembly, 70 N. 6th Street. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are available here for $20. —XXL Staff
