For their 12th year the Portland Oregon Hip-Hop Festival (that's Poh-Hop if your nasty, or just hate really long festival titles) is bringing out the big names: Freeway and Jake One. Sure, not exactly local acts (although Jake One reps the Pacific Northwest and has done his time behind the decks at The Fix in the past), but in previous years the festival has left the 503 for headliners, such as last year's top draw E-40.
POH-Hop runs from January 19-22 and the pair behind Stimulus Package will be performing on January 21st at Backspace (!). We'll update you on the full lineup when it's announced.
Until then, play this loud...
