California underground hiop-hop trio STRONG ARM STEADY graces our stage today in support of their 2011 album Arms & Hammers and this past August's Stereo Type, a collaboration with producer Statik Selektah that dares listeners to try and stereotype the group. Home to indie-rap juggernaut label Stones Throw, the trio consists of Krondon, Phil Da Agony and Mitchy Slick to deliver a face-punch of dizzying production partnered with rambling yet fluid MCmanship. Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, FESS GRANDIOSE began as an MC at 17 and has added DJ and producer to his resume. On his Life in Lo-Fi…Vol 1, his ability as a lyricist and producer explodes from crappy computer speakers. A newcomer to the burgeoning Chicago hip-hop scene, AUGGIE THE 9TH dropped People's Court Complete mixtape this past summer featuring beats chosen by the people (except tracks 11-12) and his upcoming debut #SWAG is one of the Chi-town rap scene's most anticipated albums of the fall.
