Friday, May 1, the Body Rock ATX crew will present their annual tribute party to old school hip-hop collective, The Native Tongues, at Empire Control Room & Garage. As they do every first Friday of the month, Austin-based hip-hop duo Riders Against The Storm (RAS) and DJ Chorizo Funk will have you dancing all through the night. The Body Rock series provides a unique party experience featuring the best soul, funk, RnB and of course hip-hop.
The Native Tongues collective featured New York-based groups Jungle Brothers, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Black Sheep and Brit-hop icon Monie Love during what many critics and hip-hop historians consider to be hip-hop’s golden era. The collective or movement as some call it inspired many of today’s hip-hop artists. The tribute set begins at midnight.
