On Monday night WTBU, Boston University’s student-run radio station, hosted a concert which showcased some of Boston’s best underground hip-hop acts at BU Central. WTBU teamed up with Music Unites to put on the concert. Collections for the cause were collected at the door. Music Unites is a charity organization that provides funds for music programs in underprivileged school. For more information on Music Unites please visit their website: http://www.musicunites.org/.
As a WTBU DJ I am really interested and invested in local and underground music. However, Monday’s showcase was my first experience with underground hip-hop in Boston. I tend to go to a lot of rock and punk shows but it was really great to get some exposure to a different underground music scene in Boston. The showcase featured a lot of different artists including DJ Goutlet, MeTal, Charmingly Ghetto, Retrospek, Dutch Rubelle, Aziz and Chuuwee. Please click on the links to check out these artists.
