The city is certainly heating up and so are our hip-hop lineups for July. This month's shows feature a healthy sampling of rap: the indie, underground and mainstream, all coming from the East, West and Midwest. To spice things up even more, not one of St. Louis' venues is repeated twice, providing a completely incomparable experience. So if getting low is your style, then don't miss ATL's Ying Yang Twins at the Ready Room. If you'd rather pull that slot machine, then Lil Debbie's got you covered at the Firebird. July's bringing it to you, hip-hop heads.

From Atlanta comes the legendary Ying Yang Twins, Kaine and D-Roc, who gained popularity on Lil Jon's single "Get Low." The duo followed up that hit with singles like "Salt Shaker," "Badd" and "Shake." While they haven't dropped their own project since 2009's Ying Yang Forever, they recently teamed up with German producer DJ Teddy-O to release All Around The World in 2012. But we're really hoping for those classic hits..."The Whisper Song," anybody?
