Nashville Scene Critics’ Pick: Meant for the Milk Crate

AL-D and E.T. have been dauntless in doing their part to spotlight local and regional hip-hop with their Meant for the Milk Crate showcase series and their weekly Fringe Radio Show on community station WRFN-LPFM. Over Meant for the Milk Crate’s five-year run, your hosts have put dozens of rappers on the stage at conventional Nashville venues, an important feat in itself. But now AL-D is going one step further and dropping a mixtape featuring tracks from past guests. The track list wasn’t available at press time, but previous bills have featured top-shelf MCs like Brian Brown, Rashad tha Poet, Virghost, Tiara P. and BeHoward, so chances are it’s going to be rad. And why not throw a party to celebrate? A $10 cover at the door will get you a copy of the mix, plus admission to live sets from established local rappers Young Quael, Case Arnold and Foundation, as well as choice up-and-comer Daisha McBride. On top of all that, you can watch (or spit some bars in) open-mic cyphers before and after the show. STEPHEN TRAGESER, Nashville Scene
