Nationwide Boom Bap Floods New York City For 2010 CMJs

By Amir Said (Sa’id)

The CMJ (College Music Journal) music festival will get a heavy dose of quality boom bap next week, when Audible Treats serves up their second annual showcase. Events like these truly testify to the draw and power of hip hop/rap music on the college music circuit. And Audible Treats shrewdly takes it one step further this year by prominently featuring the “beatmaker/MC”.

Indeed, headliners of the Audbile Treats CMJ Showcase, which kicks off next Thursday, 10/21, include trunk-funk master Nottz, and the man behind the beats of Tanya Morgan, Von Pea. Throw in Diamond District—Oddisee’s home team—and you have three of today’s most engaging beatmaker/MCs taking center stage in what is sure to be one of the most talked about shows of this year’s CMJs. Shouts to Audible Treats for putting together such a solid line-up.

Other artists slated to perform at the Audible Treats CMJ Showcase include:
Black Sheep, Rah Digga (dope new album produced by Nottz), The Niceguys, Big Pooh & Hall of Justice, Chip Fu, The Left, Davinci, and Moe Green.
Audible Treats CMJ Showcase, Thursday, 10/21/10 – Sullivan Hall, NYC

Editor’s note: Since this show is taking place in New York City, expect a big number of surprise guest performances.
