Head-Roc’s Mouth: D.C. Hip-Hop Rock Star Recommendations

So, the following represent Chocolate City’s finest in the art of rhythm and rhyme. I highly recommend, if you love or are interested in experiencing the real flavor of D.C., Maryland, and Virgina hip-hop, that you spend some time looking each of these artists up online. Most have Facebook, MySpace, Reverb Nation, or their own websites. If they have product for sale, purchase it so they can eat from the fruit of their labor. If they have a mailing list, sign up to keep abreast of their activities. If they have shows, go see them rock the house live and direct.
The list, as compiled by DJ RBI and fully endorsed by Yours Truly is as follows:
  • Gods'Illa
  • Asheru
  • PoemCees
  • The Package
  • Pro'Verb
  • K-Beta
  • Diamond District
  • Kokayi
  • Dirty Water
  • Lyriciss
  • Enoch 7th Prophet
  • Ra The MC
  • Hueman Prophets
  • Laelo Hood
Take note how, in this first draft, no artist or groups that are commercially considered the ones hip-hop lovers need to check for, are listed.
Now, who in our D.C. hip-hop community do you think is worthy of energy and economic patronage to help them continue to create their art? Who would you add to this list?
