On Saturday, May 16, Erie will be treated with more than just a hip-hop concert. You see, HipHop I.N.C., featuring Brooklyn rapper Nino Bless, will be an all-out hip-hop extravaganza at Basement Transmissions.

What makes a hip-hop extravaganza, you ask? Well, first you need some dope artists. Bless will lead a rock-solid lineup that will include fellow gifted emcees K Sanz, Odub, Heresy, Rastik, Elias, J2X, and CG, so this show has the music down pat. Next, a DJ exhibition would be pretty great. Good thing HipHop I.N.C. has four different DJs in store for May 16, DJ TZ, DJ Nitro, DJ Vanni, and DJ Robb all ready to impress.

Want more? You’ll get more thanks to a b-boy competition and a graffiti demo planned for the night, giving you some breakdancing and art to go along with a heavy dose of music. Add in some black lights and neon glow sticks into the mix, and you’ve got plenty of visual treats to pair with some high-quality hip-hop.

That’s a lot of action in a single show, so it would be a shame to have to shut anyone out of the fun, which is why the event is open to all ages. From the audience to the entertainment, HipHop I.N.C. provides some all-inclusive hip-hop entertainment at Basement Transmissions. – Alex Bieler
