The pandemic has been especially rough on Tampa Bay rap giant Gat$. In 2020, he lost his brother, Henry, and dropped his best and most personal work to date, Robbed, in response.

There was a silver lining when he opened for Freddie Gibbs back in November, and now, for what appears to be his first gig of the year, Gat$ will hit the stage with the Alan Parsons of rap—Lupe Fiasco producer Kaelin Ellis who played Rock the Park Tampa recently—plus Treis Alexander’s singer-songwriter project, Treis and Friends, and fellow Tampa-based emcee, DJ Eminent.
If you can’t make this show, Ellis and Alexander will be appearing at Gasparilla Music Festival next month.
