Hip-Hop Hooray

We're mere days away from one of the most important elections of our lifetime and it seems like peeps on either side of the race for the White House (be they supporters of McCain or Obama) are pulling out all the stops. For instance, the PHX's hip-hop scene is putting on an off-the-chain rally at Phoenix College to drum up support for their boy Barack. The event features performances from local big-wigs Rocadolla and Willy Northpole, as well ass Tajji Sharp, JX3, Geno, Ocean, DJ Tyger, Pokafase, Rampage, Karli Hustle, Baby T., and Super Snake.
