We don’t often do a lot to cover our hip-hop brethren, but I figured that I would take this moment to pay homage to one of the only rappers that I ever really paid attention to when I was younger. For me, hip-hop was Wu Tang, and the GZA was the glue. This Wednesday night at Emo’s he’s going to play his classic Liquid Swords in its entirety. Those into hip-hop won’t want to miss this night.
You can pick up your own set of tickets over at Ticketweb.
