Back in March, after running game out of Transit Lounge for eight straight months, the Rising hip-hop series and the tag team behind the enterprise (clothing kingpins Last Rights and rap producer Numonics) decided to take 90 days away from the grind to regroup, re-up, and reorganize.
But finally, the Rising returns. And next Friday, the series hits its new hangout -- PAX -- with a headlining set by ATL heavy, occasional Outkast collaborator, and current T.I. signee Killer Mike, who'll be throwing down hot tracks off his most recent street slab, PL3DGE.
There'll be beats, bangers, bottles, booty, and backup from locals like Fusik, Dynas, and Eric Biddines -- not to mention Jon the Barber manning the mike and Poe Boy's DJ Smokey Bear bashing it out behind the decks.
Now go gather your crew, pile into a rented ride, and cruise down I-95 'cause it's time to rise.
