For over 10 Years DJ Selector E (aka Eric Brayman) has been supporting Charlottes HIP-HOP scene with a monthly event that showcases the cities most talented MC’s. The collective is known as QC HIP-HOP where the likes of Keyza Soulsay, Ike Turner and even internationally known HIP-HOP artist Superstition have performed live for their home town.
Charlotte is still divided between HIP-HOP and Mainstream, but because this event is based on the culture of HIP-HOP it has stood the test of time. This has been the longest running HIP-HOP event in the QC. Artist from all over the Carolinas and beyond have traveled here to showcase their talent, and network with the most lyrically gifted artists in the city.
The event is held the first Monday of every Month at Crown Station located at 1425 Elizabeth Avenue Charlotte, NC. Make sure to check out the next event that usually starts around 10PM. The event starts out with a live “Cypher” before the showcase where artist battle, and go for the Juggler in a battle rap competition where the ultimate prize is strictly bragging rights.
Biltmore Records had the privlige of working with Selector E and other various artist on The Biltmore Records radio show “Cipher Divine” that broadcasted live on 103.3 FM in 2012. This event should be mentioned in the Hip-Hop history books when it come to the Queen city and North Carolina in general. True supporter of HIP-HOP the culture.
