Independent's Day hip-hop showcase

Independent's Day hip-hop showcase

A celebration went down at the Turf Club on July 4th. Not the kind of party with turkey dogs and sparklers, but the kind with food for thought that creates fireworks in your mind. The concept of the Independent's Day showcase at the Turf Club was to have the best independent local hip-hop artists come together, as an alternative to a 4th of July political event. Organizer Toki Wright wanted to provide a space where people could simply have fun, relax and enjoy life. Guests did all of the above, but when you get together artists who have something to say, it's hard not to get political.
