Saturday To-Do: Hip-Hop Showcase

HIP-HOP SHOWCASE
8 p.m., Vino's. $7.

For those (like me) who worry local hip-hop is, at best, treading water and, at worst, sinking quickly, a rejoinder. Or at least that's the idea behind the Arkansas Hip-Hop Showcase. Organized by believers Max Farrell, Conduit Entertainment and OnthaGrind.net, the contest pits 10 mostly up-and-coming local acts against each other. Much like the Times Musicians Showcase, judges will score on originality, showmanship, lyrical cohesiveness and production. An audience vote factors in, too. The contestants include a lot of rappers who could use better names — Koop Da Villain, Lunchroom Bullies, Duke, L. Capo, Bobby, Rah hoWard, J3, K2 the Goon, Mista Mayhem and Cat Daddy. The winner gets $200, a feature on local DJ Discipline's forthcoming “Disciplinary Actions” mixtape, a $50 gift certificate to Rock City Kicks and a feature in NuSouth Online Magazine. There are cash prizes for first and second runners up, too. Farrell and SJ from the 4X4 Crew emcee and DJ Discipline works the ones and twos.
