New Hip-Hop Hits the Pub

    Hip-hop will make another stamp on campus on April 18 at Porter’s Pub, with the arrival of
    a Southern California trio and one New
    native. CashUsKing, DJ Exile, World and Sene are
    set to perform in an event hosted by UCSD’s Hip-Hop Club. Even though these
    names might be unfamiliar to some, it’s sure to be a worthwhile show.

    CashUsKing is a relatively new MC out of Los
    . In a short amount of time and through work
    with cats like Blu, Ta’Raach and fellow performer DJ Exile, he has started to
    establish himself as a serious lyricist and a seriously dope MC. His rhyming
    partner and fellow Blu collaborator Sene, out of Brooklyn,
    will also be on deck to perform with CashUs and display some of his own
    material. The show will most likely benefit from the performers’ familiarity —
    all have already worked together directly or indirectly.

    Exile is probably the most seasoned artist of the bunch. He
    had beats on the last Mobb Deep album, released his own LP, Dirty Science, and
    partnered with fellow Los Angeles
    native Blu to create one of 2007’s best LPs, Below the Heavens.

    He’ll be DJing for CashUs as well as performing a beat set
    of his own, displaying new and previously unheard material through his wizardry
    with the MPC sampler. Ex has also brought fellow producer World along to show
    off his own head-knocking creations. The show’s most exciting aspect, besides
    the fact that the acts are top-notch, is that this isn’t a standard performance
    from an established group; instead, it features some of the best new artists in
    Southern California.

    Friday, April 18, the Stage @ Porter’s Pub, open to everyone
    18+, free, limited capacity, show starts at 8:30
