Where's the Hip Hop in Cleveland?

I know that not everyone is into hip hop. I dig that. But sometimes, I just want folks to give it a chance. Other times, I really want it to be my nicely kept little secret so that when I want tix to that show, the tix are easier to get. Also, so that when I get to the venue, I don't have to push and shove through droves of young people (i.e. my students) just to enjoy a show.

But that's just me. It's also just me to put you on to what you have been missing, actually in this case here are some events that you don't want to miss. I am personally recommending the Murs show, Atmosphere too. Oh, and Little Brother will be right up your alley. And don't you dare miss the Ohio Hip Hop Awards. I'm writing this post because all of these shows will be awesome and the price is, well, priceless. You could see 12 of these shows at the cost of one Tina Turner show ... I just thought I'd point that out.
