If you've ever wondered why Cincinnati doesn't have more live Hip Hop shows, this week Corryville club Top Cat's makes a run at being the top local source for the best of the genre
. Besides Saturday's appearance by locals Phammilly Impulze and Wednesday's CD release appearance by local duo Definition (see Spill It
), Friday night brings a show by West Coast Hip Hop crew Tha Liks
(also known as Tha Alkaholiks). The group which features former Cincinnatians E Swift and Tash emerged from the underground in the early '90s with their brand of solidly-performed Hip Hop for the party-inclined. Tha Liks are currently supporting their most recent release, X.O. Experience
, which critics have hailed as the best of their career.
At Top Cat's on Friday with fellow Likwit Crew member Defari and the collective Living Legends.
