Nashville Scene Critics’ Pick for the May 11, 2019 Meant for the Milk Crate featuring the Morning After Crew, Pow Shadowz, BeHoward, and Endre on Purpose.
There are at least three milestones that you could reasonably argue mark the start of summer: the solstice, Memorial Day and the last day of school. That last one is closest to the feeling of Saturday’s installment of the Meant for the Milk Crate series, a showcase for local and regional hip-hop since 2012. You’ve got short-and-sweet sets from four choice acts. At the top of the bill is The Morning After Crew — a trio, something rare in Music City rap — and you’re going to want to get to know their 2018 album For My Friends. Maybe you already know local rap veterans Pow Shadowz and BeHoward, or rising champ Endre on Purpose (part of local label/collective It’s Like That Records), but if you don’t, don’t feel bad — come out and get familiar. As always, MFTMC co-founders AL-D and E.T. will be on hand to host (and hopefully spit a bar or two, because they are excellent rappers), DJ Vamp will man the 1s and 2s, and there will be an open-mic cypher after the show, where you can flex your rhyming abilities. 9:30 p.m. at The Cobra, 2511 Gallatin Ave. STEPHEN TRAGESER, Nashville Scene
