Xzibit’s Open Bar Entertainment and Contrabandit.com bring hip-hop talent showcase Rhyme Night to Long Beach on April 29th.
Rhyme Night returns with special guests Planet Asia, Ras Kass and Strong Arm Steady, with headlining performance by Xzibit.
Long Beach, CA – After much anticipation, multi-platinum rapper Xzibit and Contrabandit.com return with the nation’s premiere hip-hop talent showcase, Rhyme Night. Hosted by Power 106FM’s Felli Fell, Rhyme Night will be held at The Vault 350 in Long Beach on April 29th. The Vault 350 is located at 350 Pine Avenue in Long Beach, CA. In addition, Los Angeles’ number one radio station, Power 106, will be broadcasting live from the venue throughout the course of the evening.
Featuring a live performance by critically acclaimed underground superstar Planet Asia, Rhyme Night will also showcase a special performance by newly freed, super-lyricist Ras Kass. For years, Fresno, CA native Planet Asia has been representing California’s often ignored, yet vibrant underground scene and is currently working on his upcoming release, The Medicine. After a brief incarceration, Carson, CA native Ras Kass’ triumphant return already has hip hop heads buzzing with his numerous recent mixtape appearances. Ras Kass graces the Rhyme Night stage while readying his upcoming new street releases, Institutionalized Volume I and II.
The evening’s headliner will be none other than Rhyme Night co-founder Xzibit, whose performance will include hits from his critically acclaimed recent release, Weapons of Mass Destruction. Xzibit’s headlining performance will also feature his group, Strong Arm Steady (Krodon, Phil the Agony, and San Diego’s Mitchy Slick). Strong Arm Steady is currently in the studio preparing their debut album, Arms and Hammers, slated for summer 2005 release.
“Rhyme Night continues to provide a platform for the West Coast’s best and brightest MCs,” says Xzibit, also host of the wildly popular MTV series Pimp My Ride and star of the blockbuster XXX: State of the Union, which opens nationwide on Friday, April 29th. “This time we are thrilled to bring Rhyme Night to Long Beach, a city with its own unique hip-hop history.”
“Power 106 has made its commitment to West Coast hip-hop clear by broadcasting live from Rhyme Night,” says Ryan Ford, who was recently named West Coast Editor of The Source magazine and is co-founder of both Rhyme Night and Contrabandit.com. “Rhyme Night continues to offer West Coast MCs a chance to shine.”
