Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
With the line between lyricism and poetry being so fine, it's not uncommon to see MCs express themselves in both hip-hop ciphers and academic arenas alike. Idris Goodwin, Kevin Coval and Serengeti are just those types of artists, and their respective bodies of work have done more than change the landscape of hip-hop. Each one is accomplished in his own right, and it'll be interesting to see all three of them share the stage with their own style of wordplay. Idris Goodwin (an NEA award-winning writer) may be the headliner, but openers Kevin Coval (co-founder of Louder Than a Bomb: The Chicago Youth Poetry Slam Festival) and Serengeti (of Anticon) will make this an all-around solid display of lyrical excellence.
