Over the last two years or so, a Rap Renaissance has been rumbling in the heart of Detroit. 

Next weekend, the Renaissance comes to Ann Arbor. The #CoOwnaz collective features a range of emcees, each blessed and blemished with their own blue-collar weirdness and disarmingly erudite penmanship. The group’s membership is slightly amorphous and their headquarters are only loosely identified as a loft in Eastern Market, but nevertheless, some of its most talented clientele are roadtripping together, like a traveling revue ala Motown’s caravan of recording artists back in the 60’s, over to the Blind Pig, to help send off on a European tour one of their most industrious comrades, Dante LaSalle.

That said… Let’s have a sampling of songs:
Dante LaSalle: “Mr. Merriweather Hustle Anthem”

Doc Waffles: “Hockey Fights”

Sleepless Inn: “Escalators”

#CoOwnaz at The Blind Pig – September 18th – 9:30 pm

Featuring:
Charles Trees
Eddie Logix
Jaws That Bite
Dante LaSalle
Doc Waffles 
Sleepless Inn
