Drake isn’t the only rapper who started at the bottom, honing his craft to become one of the biggest names in the genre. Fortunately for us, Erie has quite a few talented MCs, and we’re lucky that they’re here.

Music fans were in for a treat this past November when a long list of those loquacious lyricists showed off their musical chops at 814 Grinders: Hip-hop Pt. 1. The event was so good, in fact, that it will be getting a sequel Friday, Dec. 12 at The Beer Mug.

814 Grinders: Hip-hop Pt. 2 features yet another impressive list of artists, showcasing some of the best Erie has to offer in terms of mic controllers. Hip-hop Pt. 2’s lineup features recent Best of Erie winner for Best MC Jonny Evans and includes performances from fellow verse masters Devious, Courtesy Da Vinchi, K Sanz, JPohl, Heresy, and a special set from F.A.M.O.E. – Hoffa Boys, Inc. If that isn’t enough local hip-hop star power for you, Blue Pike Award winner and Erie Reader 40 Under 40-alum C. Brown will handle hosting duties on the night.

Local music fans showed their support back in November, so Erie gets treated to another dose of hip-hop magic this December. Show the performers some love when 814 Grinders: Hip-hop Pt. 2 hits The Beer Mug and enjoy what should be a high-quality sequel. 

10 p.m. Friday, Dec. 12 // 1108 Liberty St. // 454.4753

Fighting for change in our most vulnerable communities.

Running into a blazing building can be ‘terrifying,’ but some choose to do it, anyway. 

Here are three good opportunities to lighten up as the nights grow longer.

Dancing Wheels bring a world premiere to Mercyhurst.

Shapeshift With Me, relative to the band’s spectacular catalog as a whole, is certainly one of their less powerful studio albums.

Some ‘multigrain’ bread has a little more protein than you’d like.
