Audio Perm Block Party showcases Twin Cities hip-hop, offers up free mixtape

It's not uncommon to find a rap act sharing a bill with a bunch of rock and pop acts at one of the Twin Cities' many block parties, but aside from mammoth outdoor fest Soundset you're hard-pressed to find a summer shindig that caters specifically to the local rap scene. Next weekend, thanks to a troupe of young producers that call themselves Audio Perm, that's all going to change: The Audio Perm Block Party will showcase SoCal rappers Pac Div alongside Twin Cities hip-hop artists big (I Self Divine, Toki Wright, Kanser) and small next Saturday, August 27, in the Shuga Records parking lot.

To get showgoers acquainted with the acts on the bill, Audio Perm are releasing a series of bios, interviews, and music videos on their Tumblr page, as well dropping a free Audio Perm Block Party mixtape that provides a sampler of the acts on the bill.
