CWMAs: Emerson Kennedy, Concise Kilgore, Burnell Washburn, Dope Thought

Emerson Kennedy’s experimental hip-hop, which runs the gamut from indie-rock to rap, gets a boost tonight from a full backing band, which will bring the 29-year-old musician-producer-rapper’s latest cuts—off of his first full-length album, Denim—to life. Co-owner of Wasatch Renaissance, Burnell Washburn is not only an advocate of the SLC hip-hop scene, the MC is wont to drop rhymes about his overwhelming love for the town and surrounding environs. Rose Park MC DopeThought balances his battle-rap style with engaging storytelling, as heard on the 2013 release We Our Environment—17 tracks of dope rhymes and jazzy, clean production courtesy of producer Jackson “Worth” Savage. Rounding out the lineup is probably SLC’s most successful rapper, Concise Kilgore. With support from DJ Briskoner, Kilgore’s late-2012 LP Kobain had some of rap’s biggest names on the credits, and the guy has serious skills, to boot. $5
