Now That’s Class to Host the Fourth Annual Fear of a Black Planet Hip-Hop Showcase

Share on Nextdoor
Four years ago, MC Josiah "Zion" Quarles, a local guy who plays in the hip-hop group MuAmin Collective, launched a showcase for local acts that he dubbed Fear of a Black Planet.

He’s just announced the details for this year’s event, which will feature a tribute to the late hip-hop producer and rapper J Dilla and include performances by local acts such as DJ Candi Fresca, Amani Cove, Delofi, Muamin Collective, Mourning [A] BlkStar and Jah Nada.

A-Live will spin music from Dilla's extensive catalog. The show takes place at 8 p.m. on Feb. 8, which is also J Dilla's birthday, at Now That’s Class.

Tickets are $10.
