KZSU DJ Kevvy Kev  is the Yoda of hip-hop - a wise Jedi of boom-bap who has been a constant force in supporting the music and the culture since anyone can remember.

On Sunday, August 30, Kevvy Kev presides over the 25th Anniversary of The Drum, which he calls "the longest-running hip-hop show in the world." This year's event, held at Golden Gate Park's Peacock Meadow from 1-5pm, features 25 DJs and 25 MCs, including Naughty By Nature, Hieroglyphics, Blackalicious, Tash of the Alkoholiks, Speech of Arrested Development, Motion Man, Q-Bert, DJ D-Sharp, Davey-D, and many, many more. If that's not enough dopeness for hip-hop junkies, the afterparty at Club Six presents the Traktor Stratch 2.0 Battle, a head-to-head turntablist competition with prizes and airtime at stake. Sounds like a big "hip-hop hooray" is in order. For more info, email Kevvy Kev here or click here .

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
