IT’S BEEN AWHILE, BUT HERE WE GO AGAIN.
REMEMBER THE HIP HOP SERIES FROM AWHILE BACK? SAME VIBE, DIFFERENT NIGHT & A WHOLE NEW CREW.
Pope Adrian Bless is one of the prolific and energetic rappers out of Indianapolis. He’s constantly playing solo shows and collaborative shows with other local rappers as well as Indy bands. I tried to get Bless to play The Spot’s first hip hop series back in 2015, but unfortunately those plans fell through. Finally Bless we’ll “bless” us (sorry) with his one of kind presence that will make you an instant fan. Besides being a staple of the Indy hip hop community, Bless has also been an important addition to the Chreece hip hop festival in Fountain Square. Bless mixes raw emotion in his live shows, ranging from furious rhymes to soothing gospel.
Keeping the lineup rolling, ‘Dose’ Dose comes another enthusiastic Indy rapper who fits well with everyone else on the bill. Dose has collaborated with Mula Kkhan, and you can catch up on his long list of freestyles and singles on Dose’s SoundCloud page. His EP AM.PM features some real bangers from last year, including “Drugs in Me” and “Chaos.”
Mula Kkhan comes from the west side of Indianapolis, and he’s a part of the local rap group, Gorgus Hustle. Kkhan provides feel good hip hop, and you can feel those positive vibes on his most recent mixtape, I.N.L.Y.A.M. (I’ll Not Like You Anymore). According to his website, Kkhan coined the phrase, “Catch This Wave.” So you can expect some laid back vibes with some skilled lyricism over slow beats.
ST QUEST is a local DJ, who you’ve probably seen from one of the Electronic Frolic shows from last year. Specializing in trap, old school, and variety of other genres, you can expect the crowd to get hype when ST QUEST is playing. Get hype!
Get ready for a fresh a new hip hop take with Resin Dog, who has rapped over more ambient and industrial tracks. Like the others on the bill, Resin Dog shrouds himself in an emotional and thoughtful rhymes brought to life through a passionate performance.
