It’s hard work advocating for New York hip hop.
There’s a ton of great music to sift through (among tons of not-so-great music), we have to get into arguments with people who still think New York hip hop is “dead” because it’s not on the radio or because some Jerome-looking-ass Atlanta artist said so… Adding a billion amazing NY-area hip hop events to our world-famous CALENDAR… Attending events that all the other hip hop media ignore…
Yep. Long days, long nights. More work than play.
Sometimes, we need to get out of the lab and shake our collective ass.
So, beginning in January, 2014, we are teaming up with the good, sexy, great-music lovin’ folks at Hip-Hop & Her Family to bring you #ASYLUM: A Safehouse for the Wild & Sexy.
We like to think we’re pretty wild and sexy. And you can’t just be all wild and sexy just anywhere. So we sure could use a place to let it all hang out, without the bullshit usually associated with going out and having a good time.
This month’s #ASYLUM features DJ Autograph and DJ Petra on the decks, with the lovely and talented Genesis Be holding down hosting duties. Its’ FREE before Midnight, $5 for ladies, $10 for gentlemen after that. Doors open at 10pm.
This is an official Birthplace Magazine-sponsored event, so we will be in the place-to-be as well.
#ASYLUM takes place Saturday, January 4, 2014 at Sutra, and will be the first of many monthly parties. For information, last-minute details and more events throughout the month that might tickle your wild and sexy, hip hop loving selves, be sure to keep a constant eye on THE CALENDAR, our destination for hot NY-area hip hop-related events.
For now, spread the word! Urge people to flee those wack parties, become refugees and take #ASYLUM at Sutra on January 4!
Hip-Hop & Her Family is a weekly radio show on WNYU 89.1 FM (Fridays from 10:30pm to 1am)
#ASYLUM is sponsored by BENVEN Clothing, Birthplace Magazine, Purpose Productions, WNYU, Reckless Promotions, Female Flow Mixtapes & Genesis Be Publishing
