Dubbed as both the Operation Skid Row Music Festival and the Occupy Skid Row Music Festival, on January 15th Chuck D and Public Enemy along with a dozen or more (mostly old school LA) hip-hop acts will put on a free concert for the down-on-their-luck residents of Los Angeles’ desolate Skid Row district. The list of other performers for this wonderful free all afternoon event, that will also be open for free to anyone from anywhere who wishes to attend, includes Cypress Hill, Kurupt from the Dogg Pound, Mellow Man Ace and Zzyzzx, King T, Rapper’s Rapp Group, Sir Jinx and General Population, OG Kid Frost, L.A. Posse, and the Egyptian Lover. What makes this concert significant is that all of these artists have agreed to perform for free as a an unselfish token in this new year for the homeless population of LA’s famed Skid Row area which contains one of the largest stable populations of homeless persons in the USA. A 2011 study estimated that Skid Row’s population was at over 4300 people!More
The dates are July 30th and 31st with a free outdoor concert at Lincoln Park featuring (so far) J-Live, Natural Elements & Wise Intelligent (of Poor Righteous Teachers). Torae will also be in the house getting some exclusive interviews. Keep it locked for more info and the official flyer. Salute to the brother DJ Eclipse. UPDATE: Rahzel & DJ JS-1, Kurious & Neek The Exotic & Large Professor have just been added to the roster as well.
