This upcoming June’s edition of the Scion AV Open Mic series shows how important it’s becoming in hip-hop to be a multi-faceted artist and how you never know where the next star may be lurking.
Headlining the night is Hit-Boy, a young producer behind a collection of hits that have defined the sound of rap music for the past few years. His discography includes Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Paris,” A$AP Rocky’s “Goldie,” GOOD Music’s “Clique” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Backseat Freestyle.” Hit-Boy has since advanced his own career as a rapper with last year’s mixtape HITstory and signed a solo deal with Interscope Records.
Chase N. Cashe is a part of the Surf Club crew with Hit-Boy and had a hand in producing songs for artists including Lil Wayne, Drake and Brandy. Cashe’s “This & That” was featured on Fool’s Gold Record’s Loosies compilation from last year and dropped a series of mixtapes and albums including The Heir Up There and Charm.
Finally, there’s Aaron Cohen, an up-and-coming MC that’s part of I.C.K. crew. Though he grew up in Seattle, Cohen recently relocated to New York, the home of his favorite rappers and stylistic forebearers, like Nas and the Wu-Tang Clan.
Scion AV Open Mic is going down on June 26 at Coco 66 at 66 Greenpoint Ave. in Brooklyn, New York.
