Scion Open Mic brings the beach house to Brooklyn on November 13, 2013, with a showcase featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Vic Mensa and Deniro Farrar. Of course DJ GetLive! will be spinning between acts. It’s all going down at the Knitting Factory, 361 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn, NY, 11211
Each of the three performers have been doing big things on the mixtape circuit and are honing their distinct sound. Ty Dolla $ign has become a crucial force in Southern California since his work on YG’s “Toot It and Boot It” and has only increased his presence in anticipation of his upcoming debut album. Vic Mensa out of Chicago is best known for his verse on Chance the Rapper’s “Cocoa Butter Kisses,” but his recent INNATAPE release has given people plenty of other reasons to listen. Finally, Deniro Farrar of North Carolina has been working with some of hip-hop most innovative beatmakers on his self-described brand of “cult rap.”
