Noisey.com and Gentleman Jack Whiskey have teamed up to create a video series titled “The Backdrop” with the objective of covering the most influential cities with respect to hip hop. Perhaps the coolest part about this video documentary is that each episode culminates in the celebration of art and music at the Gentleman Jack Art, Beats + Lyrics event.
The series draws upon the experience of local artists that the cities have thrown up.
Dates for the The 5th annual tour of Art, Beats + Lyrics event for the chosen cities are –
Atlanta – The Compound – Friday, September 14
Dallas – Palladium Ballroom — Thursday, September 20
Houston – Warehouse Live — Thursday September 27
Los Angeles – Union Station — Friday, October 5
Washington D.C. – Andrew Mellon Auditorium — Friday, November 16
Miami – LMNT – Wednesday, December 5
