Hip-hop culture, Burque Style

I dig hip-hop. I spent 20 years coming to this conclusion. You all can thank an actor and writer from right here in Burque—who goes by the moniker MistaBill—for getting me hooked up with hip-hop nation in the nineties.

Ready or Not, Here I Come!

The Delfonics • soul, R&B

The Delfonics Revue, a trio of musicians who are only vaguely associated with the original legendary R&B act, but still roll righteously—we're pretty sure this version doesn't include surviving original member Greg Hill—makes an appearance at Leo's Nightclub on Saturday, Aug. 17. This particular group of R&B musicians with a soulful twist includes Norman Carter, who once sang backup for the band. Although the identities of Carter's ensemble are otherwise obscure, this is a decent show, especially if you're into groovy Delfonics' numbers from their smash hit album, Sound of Sexy Soul. Ch-check it out kidz: Admission to this ill night of deep soul singing costs but one Jackson ($20); you must be over 21 to enter the chambers as doors open at 5pm.
