The Urban Music Challenge at The Rutledge 

Ante Up

Ante Up
This Saturday marks the first round of the Rutledge's venerable hip-hop talent competition, the Urban Music Challenge, organized by local label LAFA Music. The U.M.C. has been one of the most reliable sources for finding hot new artists on the under-under-underground tip — seriously, some of these cats don't even have a MySpace, their shit is so fresh. And while we're not going to try and influence the results, we would like to throw our weight behind duo Teezy and Stone, better known as 2GZ. Their combination of tight rhymes and pop-worthy hooks over futuristic Dirty South beats are just a friendly reminder that Antioch is cranking out more tight music per square foot than any other neighborhood in town. C Vegus, Chad Armes and Get Fresh Entertainment also appear.
Sat., Feb. 6, 8 p.m., 2010
