The Best St. Louis Hip-Hop Shows: January 2014
Mac Lethal with Brett Gretzky, Seymore Awesome and HenTron at 2720 Cherokee
8 p.m. / $12-$15
Mac Lethal has been around for years, but found widespread fame in 2011 with a viral video of him flipping pancakes while spitting his own verses to Chris Brown's "Look At Me Now." Unlike most viral acts, Mac is actually good, his delivery remarkably quick -- you really have to give him a few good listens to catch all the wit and insults. He's also the mastermind behind "Texts from Bennett". If you know about that, then you know all you need to know.
Arrive early to catch a few local acts -- hip hop groups Brett Gretzky and Seymore Awesome, and electronic duo HenTron.
