817 Hip-Hop Around the Clock
The Fort Worth Music Co-Op recently invited rapper Dru B Shinin to host a hip-hop night at The Cellar (2916 W. Berry St. by TCU, 817-923-6116). The first event happened last week, and, according to Weekly writer Caroline Collier and local rapper Alan Royal, it was a success. Dru and his crew aren’t the only hip-hoppers at work in town, however. Six2, the subject of a Weekly cover story several years ago, is back after a long hiatus, and there’s always Smooth Vega and his homies. Along with Royal South, Immortal Soldierz, Lil’ Casiron, King Corleone, and others, Vega recently put together “I’m a 81G,” subtitled “the official Fort Worth anthem.” In pretty much every local rap song/video, there’s a huge amount of hometown pride. No word yet on the next hip-hop night at The Cellar.
