We’re fortunate to live in a world that has started paying attention to Music City hip-hop. But back in the Aughts, long before the likes of Mike Floss, Starlito and Dee Goodz were getting national press, SoundTherapy was one of the best shots a local MC had at getting heard. What began as an all-vinyl night hosted by DJs A7, Magnetic and friends quickly snowballed into a full-blown artist showcase that ran weekly for more than four years. AL-D, one of our scene’s top boosters and a fine MC and producer who honed his skills at SoundTherapy, is hosting a special edition of his Meant for the Milk Crate series to pay tribute. A slew of SoundTherapy alumni is on deck, including A7, Magnetic and Stones, B. Cooper and more, plus 10-minute sets from a shedload of up-and-coming hip-hop, R&B and spoken-word talents.
Tonight on the Fringe Radio Show, host AL-D will be speaking with BA the Lewe and Magnetic about the upcoming Sound Therapy reunion show, which will take place July 17 at fooBAR Too. The FREE event will feature performances by D.O.U.G.H., Cole Jonique, BA the Lewe, C-Vegas, Cronyk Illness, C.Cooper, Hughost, Adarian, 28, Chilli Sauce + additional sounds by DJ Vamp, A7, Magnetic & Stones.
The Fringe Radio Show will go live tonight at 6:00pm (Central) on Radio Free Nashville 103.7 FM (which is also streaming online at RadioFreeNashville.org).
