Some people think old school rap is what you hear at noon on local radio stations; that now, somehow, consists of Nelly and Ludacris. But do you know about the real OG shit? That roller-skating, breakdancing, early-'80s shit?

The Egyptian Lover’s name may only be remembered by true hip-hop heads and/or older folk, but everyone will recognize the synth magic that is “Egypt, Egypt.

The West Coast musician brings his legendary Roland TR-808 (read: Fancy drum machine) to Morph for the club’s Friday night dance party Freaky Key Key on November 22. Manny Cuevas and Selekta Chang open what’s sure to be a sweaty night-don’t forget to hydrate. More information is available below.

Egyptian Lover w/Manny Cuevas/Selekta Chang. Fri. Nov. 22, 10 p.m. $15. Morph, St. Petersburg. INFO.
