Last Night: Kool A.D., Fat Tony & Chingo Bling at Fitzgerald's

Kool A.D., Fat Tony, Chingo Bling, Franchise n Yung, Amber London Fitzgerald's August 14, 2012

Call it Underground Rap, or Alt-Rap, or Underground Alt-Rap, but whatever the fuck you call it, these guys won't really care. They are making music, spitting rhymes, touring the country, and having the time of their lives doing it, and that's the only real consolation they need.

Categories are invented and implemented by some guy wearing a suit, sitting in an office, who will never ever set foot in a music venue unless it's in a private suite far above us common folk. Luckily, the fans showed up in force at Fitz, on a Tuesday night no less, ready to hear good music and disregard the bullshit.

In your face, music industry!
