Best Hip-Hop: Gwan Massive

Best Hip-Hop

Local collective Gwan Massive encompasses a huge, rotating (but usually jam-packed) lineup featuring emcees like Breakdown and Jinx, hip-hop trio The Rukus (Emcees KeithElite, Rude, and DJ Mike Blenda), singer/keyboardist Monica Delgado, and members of Tribal Style (bassist MugDub, guitarist Blake Yeager) and d’Visitors (like vocalist Nikki Ferraro and trumpeter Kenny Pullin). They brew up an intoxicating, ass-shaking, hip-swaying brew of funky soulful hip-hop.
