HYPEFRESHMagazine, Inc. introduced and sponsored the first Philadelphia-sponsored event series entitled BACK2BACK. Day 1, which was at the Pharmacy, kickied off the electrifying music series featuring indie artists from Philly, Norristown and New Jersey.
Back 2 Back was curated and hosted by Shak215_, known for his exceptional event planning and festivities. This event series is providing indie artists with an opportunity to showcase their talent and shine a light on the Philly/NJ music scene.
"I think we definitely deserve more, we are working toward it. We are getting more attention that we deserve, it is getting there," Mars Parker said.
The line up featured Cowboy BeeBop, Def Bananas, Scotty Mcfarlee, Mars Parker, HPN Hallie, The Frost and Corey Lee.
If you are curious and thinking about Back2Back, just think of neon-strobe lights, bass lines, red cups, smoke clouds, stoners, rave-type energy and Hip-Hop heads. The show was lit like the 90’s underground Hip-Hop scene. The mood was gritty, raw, wild and free.
From trap and hip-hop to conscious lyrical content, all artists proved to be skilled in both pen game and delivery.
There was no weak sh*t. There were no gimmicks and it was not commercial. These EMCEES were cool, fearless and determined to prove that indie artists are the future of Hip-Hop.
