A thing that really makes me smile is knowing that hip-hop nation is currently being filled up with talented, totally hep young women whose work outshines just about anything else currently being produced in a male-dominated music scene. Such is the case with Enongo Lumumba-Kasongo, better known by her nom de rap as Sammus. An educated, literate flowmaster who incorporates elements of nerdcore and video game music into her abstract compostitions, she’ll be joined on stage on Sunday, Jan. 28 at Launchpad (618 Central Ave. SW) by New York harbinger of hardcore, Heron whose new work includes the anthemic “How Low,” and the collaborative work of progressive, conceptual rappers Ceschi and Factor Chandelier. Most interestingly though, local rappers K. Benally and LetsJus B are also on this killer bill which begins with a ritual performance of a dude who is considered to be one of the oddest, dankest and most provacative of Burque rappers, Summon The Wulf. Man, this one’s gonna get crazy good with a stellar array like that, so go, dang it, go. Bliss and the abyss await. $10 to $12 • 8pm • 21+.
