De La Soul, Rapsody & 9th Wonder, Better Taste Bureau

When: Thu., Aug. 21, 7 p.m. 2014

Ever since Little Brother dropped their 2003 debut album, The Listening, the Tar Heel State has been a steady source for deep-rooted, true-to-form boom-bap. North Carolina is currently home to some of rap's most respected artists: 9th Wonder, Phonte, Deniro Farrar and, of course, Rapsody. Signed to 9th's label Jamla Records, Rapsody is smarter, funnier and arguably harder than most of her male counterparts. On the track "Lonely Thoughts (Remix)," from her 2013 mixtape, She Got Game, Rapsody aligns herself with her idols, A Tribe Called Quest: "I never breathe, another breed, Q, Phife, Ali Shaheed/ Check the rhyme, it's just my time to kill it like the purge this spring." She Got Game was one of 2013's most notable drops on Datpiff and featured a heavy roster of talent like Jay Electronica, Chance the Rapper, Common and DJ Premier. Also performing are 9th Wonder, De La Soul and Better Taste Bureau, the 2014 City Weekly Music Awards Rap Group of the Year. (Colin Wolf)
