Henny L.O. Headlines The Next RVA Lyricist Lounge
Ever since January 12th, 2018, Radio B has presented the RVA Lyricist Lounge platform to emcees wide and far. The essence of the RVA Lyricist Lounge focuses on bringing back one of the core essentials of rap back into the spotlight: lyricism. I personally graced the Lyricist Lounge in the last three episodes to display my lyricism and I can tell you this, it's an experience. The Lounge is not only a great way to create a name in the city, it's also a great networking opportunity for up and coming artists to meet artists who have been on platforms like Michael Millions who was featured on XXL Magazine and Cane who have been on Shade45 Radio.
In this episode, Mutant Academy and Southpaw Battle Coalition member Henny L.O. will be performing his project Emergency Raps live. There will also be two rap battles going on as IGB (I Got Bars) will battle Tephlon Trauma. There is also a bare-knuckle orientation battle as a famous poet and former member of VCU's Good Clear Sound, Robalu will battle returning battle rapper Basement Chemistry who battled in episode one of the lounge. The special thing about the RVA Lyricist Lounge is that they hold open cypher slots that's similar to open mic slots. They hold thirty slots, fifteen you can reserve via DM and fifteen available at the event itself for ten dollars. The event is May 26th and it's only ten dollars to get in. You can watch one of the cyphers featuring Henny L.O. below to get a taste of the event.
