House Of Pain, GZA, La Coka Nostra...
St. Paddy's day weekend just got real serious.
The iconic 90’s hip hop group HOUSE OF PAIN comes to Chicago on the FRIDAY MARCH 12th for a pre-St. Patrick’s Day celebration! The almighty Wu is also represented as GZA opens up along with Chicago’s own Mass Hysteria, ADaD and The Comeups!
HOUSE OF PAIN
defined hip hop at its most raw and raucous form with their smash hit “Jump Around” co-produced by DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill. The songs distinctive, incessant beat merges a deep bass groove with drum loops and Public Enemy-styled sirens. House of Pain’s latest project LA COKA NOSTRA will also perform which pairs the House of Pain crew with new members Ill Bill and Slaine. Combine all this with St. Patrick’s Day festivities and the nights sure to be a party of rapturous proportions!
As an insanely good bonus GZA the Genius will bless the Chicago stage with rhymes like razor-sharp swords of liquid. As one of the founding members of the colossal Wu Tang clan, GZA has established himself as an extraordinary solo artist as well with classic albums like Liquid Swords and Beneath the Surface.
Chicago favorites MASS HYSTERIA, ADaD, and djs THE COMEUPS, TREW, BIG ONCE, DEMCHUK and RTC round out the bill for a full night of hip hop in two rooms.
