[Day After Write Up] Empire Control Room

Man it seriously went down at Empire Control Room last night! The venue was packed as there were also a few bands playing in the back part as well, but the focus tonight was on the Austin rap scene heavyweights that had come out to represent for their city. Garrett and the guys from Ambitious Creations had the live screen press setup and had been slangin shirts since early in the night... they're serious about taking it to that next level!

Lowkey from the League Of Extraordinary Gz kicked it off with a high quality aggressive hip hop set. Bringing fellow League member Reggie Coby on stage with him, he left attendees who had never heard of him before in awe of his lyrical ability. The LOEGz just released a new album called Green Room featuring Gangsta Boo, ScottyATL, Max Frost and more so check it out!

Kydd Jones followed suit with an energetic set and even debuted a new performance version of a song he's been working on called "County." If you haven't been following Kydd, he's pretty much a pro at this rap shit and tonight was no different as he performed songs off Sounds In My Head 2 and The Righteous LP as well as his upcoming album GR33D including his single with Sean Price, Blink Away.

Phranchyze closed the show out and even had special guests in attendance like blues/R&B musician Gary Clark Jr to witness his performance. Phran's coming off a SXSW where he not only opened for guys like Murs and Sir Michael Rocks, but also performed at the Austin Music Awards so between that and dropping a new album, The Anime Tape, he's on a tear right now! All in all, the show was dope and these are definitely three of the top rappers to ever come out of the city so keep your eyes on what these guys do next!
