Hustle and Grow

The Valley’s hip-hop landscape has always had its fair share of hustlers and dreamers, and the pimps and players behind newly launched TrilLife Entertainment are no exception. Their goal? Simple. They wanna put Arizona’s club and hip-hop scenes on the map.

“There [are] a lot of great hip-hop artists in Arizona, but they don’t have a lot of backing,” says Jessica Anderson, Vice President of Entertainment. “We want our events to start changing that.”

TrilLife’s drive for hip-hop dominance begins on Tuesday, March 22, with the AZ Movement Hip-Hop Event at Exit 7 Bar & Grill. Local artists Cactus Jack (a.k.a. “The King of AZ”), T Rex, and 360 (featuring Da Beat Junkie and Prophet) will perform. Food and drink specials will be offered and DJs spinning the hottest hip-hop will be on hand. 21-and-over only.
