Old-school Tampa hip-hop festival ‘Hivestock’ returns this Sunday
Sonic Bids

Ol’ Dirty Sundays is famous for bringing breakdancers, emcees, DJs and, and artists to the Crowbar courtyard, but Russell Goodwine (aka Uncle Shredded Wheat) was one of the first to do it in Tampa way back in 1996. Goodwine, a musician and publisher of Hive magazine once brought Bronx rapper Lord Finesse to a Hivestock, and he revives the party this weekend with some of the original players (read: Red Tide rapper BC), a couple of Tampa’s favorite old-school rappers Di-Vine and Seefu McCloud (collectively known as the Villanz, pictured, but also playing beat sets at this gig) in tow alongside newcomers like Psych Montano.

If you’ve ever wanted to hang with the old heads and most devoted personalities in local hip-hop, then you’ll want to be at this show and stay for ODS immediately afterwards since turntablist Josh Winkler, aka Klever, is on the decks.

Hivestock Hip Hop Showcase: Eyeznpowa w/Blak Lily/G3thatguy/The Villanz/Psych Montano/Shaka Zulu Kings/BC/Seefu McCloud/more Sunday, Nov. 21. 10 p.m. $5. Crowbar, Ybor City. @ uncleshreddedwheat on Instagram
