Guerilla Union & The House of Blues


This is huge for underground hip hop, with both camps working together to share the real hip hop all over the country. The shows will take place @ the House of Blues clubs & theater circuits. Guerilla Union festival roll call includes; Rock the Bells, Paid Dues, Spring Gathering and Smokeout. The alliance of these companies will present 150 live shows in 44 venues across the country.
Rock The Bells will be the first festival to launch. It will feature Raekwon & Ghostface performing the classic album Only, while Mobb Deep spit rhymes from The Infamous album and Mos Def & Talib Kweli dropping hits off their Black Star album. Tickets go on-sale Friday, July 22nd at 10am local time via LiveNation.com
“This partnership with House of Blues Entertainment is one of the most significant investments ever in live hip hop," said Guerilla Union CEO/Founder Chang Weisberg. "Not only will we be able to produce dozens of tours annually, from our current roster of festival projects, but we will have the ability to provide year-round 360-degree support, services, and platforms to help develop artists and their communities.”
“This is not just about selling tickets," Weisberg said. "Guerilla Union’s unique programming and marketing suits the national and international distributions channel of House of Blues venues and ticketing resources. It’s potentially a game changing combination.”

I am true to my underground hip hop. As I ponder over this partnership, I have butterflies in my stomach because of all the support Guerilla Union is getting from The House of Blues. The only major downfall I could imagine, the last time hip hop was blown up in the main stream, they exploited our culture. Flashdance, Breakin’ & Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, must I say more? I hope for the best & support the movement ALWAYs! :)
