- Event Details
Following up the success of his White Jesus: Revival mixtape, Rittz is bringing his debut headline tour to Chicago July 6th 2012 at Subterranean. The Atlanta native is a member of the Slumerican Family and has been rhyming since 1995, citing the likes of Geto Boys and Outkast as early influences. A collaboration with Yelawolf led to Rittz appearing on Yelawolf’s Trunk Muzik in early 2010, which still has heads talking.
As concisely summarized by DJBOOTH.NET, “he makes really f**king good music.”
The Revival Tour lineup also features League of Extraordinary Gz. Representing the Underground Texas Rap Scene, the League consists of the groups C.O.D., Dred Skott, and Southbound. What started out in 2009 as a collaboration for a mixtape, has turned into five mixtapes and an album, including the recent release of Loftin in Austin for SXSW 2012. Revolutionizing the Hip-Hop Movement, these three artists come together to bring a diverse, unique sound.
Chicago natives Scheme and Chandler London join the bill to bring local flavor to the rhyme-filled night along with DJ Stefan Ponce. An SRNC artist known for his vivid storytelling, Scheme has performed alongside Lupe Fiasco, The Beatnuts, Yelawolf, and many more. Inspired by the film of the same name, Chandler London’s newly released mixtape, The Science of Sleep, was produced exclusively by Stefan Ponce.
MC/Comedian Awdazcate is serving as host for the evening. Influenced by 80s Hip-Hop as well as late Chicago legend Bernie Mac, Awdazcate has been a featured guest MC for Pugs Atomz, Wes Restless and more. He’s also made the rounds as host, including Yelawolf’s Chicago tour in 2011.
Doors open at 9 pm on Friday, July 6, 2012 at Subterranean (2011 W. North Avenue, Chicago, IL). Show is 18+ and $15 presale tickets are available at subt.net.
Produced in conjunction with Knuckle Rumbler, Ruby Hornet, Midwest, Jugrnaut, Crowd Noize, DJBooth.net, Do312, ThaFixx.com
