Don't R.I.P. him, momma.


Wine & Rhyme w/Keezie Kee/Luna/Lotus Love/Dessasore/Fr33dback We hope that Dessasore's momma doesn't R.I.P. him either. Let him explain by pressing play on his all-too-short 2017 video for "Money Sound" where the Bay area emcee is on rooftops, car trunks and at house parties laying down an invigorating, undeniably-cathy sound that will surely set the party off right at Anise where another CL favorite (Tampa producer Fr33dback) takes part at this monthly party.

Anyway, this show serves as the kickoff event for St. Petersburg's Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service volunteer programs. Let the power of song tell you compelling tales of the music that drove the movement. (Palladium Theater, St. Petersburg) INFO
