Ohio has been an underrated hotbed of hip-hop for a while now spawning greats like Blueprint, RJD2, Tanya Morgan, Jean P, Hi Tek and others. Coming back from last year Columbus, Ohio will be hosting the 2×2 Hip-Hop Festival. Last year the festival boasted performances from Ill Logic, Jean P, Scribbling Idiots and more. This thought they’ve upped the ante with performances by Cas Metah, Red Pill, Ill Poetic, Copywrite and many more.
However the 2×2 Festival is about the entire culture of hip-hop not just the emceeing part. Along with the stacked lineup there will also be a Bboy/Bgirl battle, a deejay battle, live graffati art and more. For now peep the trailer above and peep this lineup below and join me in Columbus, Ohio for the 2×2 Hip Hop Festival on July 23rd!
Tickets are $10 (free for kids under 12) and can be purchased at 2x2Fest.com and make sure you follow @2x2Fest on Twitter for updates.
