FUTUREHOOD & FRIENDS

From blues to house to hip-hop, Chicago has always been at the forefront of progressive, socially liberating music, and today the city is home to a rapidly growing underground community of LGBTQ rappers, DJs and singers. Spearheaded by rapper Mister Wallace and rapper, DJ and producer Anthony “aCeb00mbaP” Pabey and his Chicago-based, LGBTQ-centric label Futurehood, artists from the scene have received local and national acclaim. For one night only at Wicker Park venue Subterranean, Mister Wallace and rising Futurehood artists like Chicago-based rappers Roy Kinsey and KC Ortiz will join several forward-thinking compatriots to showcase the diversity and fierce dynamism of this homegrown movement.

Writing at The Club: A Look at The State of The Dance Circle

Oped & Interview with our founder aCeb00mbaP written by Natasha Mijares

"So I went to Twitter and just demanded answers for why, in a city like Chicago, Smartbar is just constantly pushing up white artists? Whose story are you telling?
