Hey Sonicbids Hip Hop artists! We're looking for a local opener for our March 4th show at Subterranean (downstairs) in Chicago, IL to get the crowd hyped up for a signed Hip Hop artist originally from Philly. We haven't announced the show just yet so we can't advertise who the artist is, but you're gonna want to be a part of this. If you know anything about the Chi Hip-Hop scene, you know Subterranean has been a launching pad many artists that went on to have successful careers.
