The Best St. Louis Hip-Hop Shows: March 2014
Three 6 Mafia will perform at Mad Magician on March 27.
Sure, the weather seems nice now. But Mother Nature can be such a tease sometimes: Right when we think St. Louis is finally thawing out, we are gifted with more ice and snow and freezing rain and sleet and the occasional high-wind freak show. As we ride out the rest of this ruthless winter and St. Louis slowly -- and we do mean slowly -- transitions to spring, why not enjoy the best that St. Louis hip-hop has to offer? From indie-rap and local DJs to those national acts that sometimes grace the Lou with their presence, these are St. Louis' best hip-hop shows in March.
Afroman with The Fufops at Fubar
8 p.m. / $18-$22
Afroman is probably the only rapper in history to receive a Grammy nomination for getting too stoned to do anything. Don't blame him, though -- who really wants to clean their room? We can only hope the 25-year-old Afroman who wrote that song in 2000 is still the same 39-year-old Afroman today, and that he regales his showgoers with some superb stoney stories. What else can an Afrofan hope for?
If you're looking for a place to get down on a Saturday night, then Blank Space's monthly Bump & Hustle is your best bet. Trade in your fancy shoes for your dancin' ones, as DJ MAKossa, Needles, Hal Greens and Kase-One take over the tables with their vinyl selections. Funk, soul, reggae, hip-hop and boogie will be the specials this night.
