Hopscotch X: YBN Cordae w/guests

When: Sat., Sept. 28, 6-10 p.m. 2019

How the YBN collective met—bonding over a love of hip hop while playing Grand Theft Auto V together—has become the sort of mythic origin story of the soundcloud rapper era. As the group grew into a multi-headed hydra—free styling over Xbox Live, recording videos together and finally dropping a debut in 2017—YBN Cordae became a clear centre point, slaying verse after verse on YBN: the Mixtape. Now, hot off the heels of his first solo LP, June 2019’s The Lost Boy, Cordae brings his narrative of redemption and rhyme to Hopscotch, helping the local hip hop fest mark year 10 in a dynamite way. Possibly the fest’s biggest guest to date, this show promises to slap. Held at Rogers Square.
