In a venue smaller than the basketball court at UMass’s new recreation center, two artists of legendary and epic proportions loomed larger than life over a crowd of true hip-hop fans. It was an event with intimate feeling; a feeling felt only when fans witness their heroes performing songs that have become anthems of an underground culture. For a few hours, gods of the rap game fed off the energy and raw emotion from the crowd, powerfully performing hip-hop classics, old and new. It was night of ecstasy and awesomeness for real fans of hip-hop. It was magical.
This Saturday night, Nov. 7th, at 9 p.m., Raekwon “the Chef”, Sean Price and Hendersin will be playing at the Pearl Street Night Club in Northampton.
