Real hip-hip isn't dead after all. Last night, Lo-Life Godfather Rack-Lo put together one for the history books. “A Night of Lo & Lyrics” returned to NYC after touring the Northeast, with a slew of hip-hop artists under the Lo-Life umbrella - all affiliated crews, from RFC to AYAK to RLPC to PJC, were at Lit Lounge heavy. Hosted by Sun-Lo, the evening brought out that raw, unfiltered rap that rarely invades mainstream radio (unfortunately). Acts included Shabaam Sahdeeq, Eff Yoo, Spit Gemz, Rack-Lo, El Da Sensei, and Sadat X who freestyled a capella between each track, no breaks! Definitely another step forward for the Lo-Life movement. Love & Loyalty, the motto and the doctrine!—Steven Lau
