Critics’ Pick: Meant for the Milk Crate

What’s better than a quarterly blowout party featuring lovingly curated top-shelf local and regional hip-hop performers and an open-mic cypher? How about one that goes down more often? Hosts AL-D and E.T. are slowly but surely building up the Meant for the Milk Crate party, and this will be the third time this year they’ve had it on an every-other-month basis — an exciting bit of news for a town bursting with rap talent but sorely in need of a place to show off. Representing the 615 on this particular bill are Seene P and his swinging flow; Finess, whose 2016 release Senior YR shows her dropping verses in a variety of contexts; and Magnetic Forces, a duo whose nerdier tendencies help them go deep into old-school territory on their 2017 full-length The Vision on Multiple Occasions. Supremely seasoned Memphis MC Jason Da Hater tops the bill. Some cool extras to note: There will be an additional cypher before the featured MCs take the mic, and there’s a screening of the damn funny lampoon-tastic horror-comedy Black Holler at 7:30 p.m. (And if you come out and pay the $5 to see that, you’ll get a discount on your admission to MFTMC.)
