Brown Sugar: A Devine Intervention and Disco Damie Production, much like Lexington’s hip hop scene, has kept its wings tucked neatly beneath the radar for most of its existence.

The event is hosted by Cass Dwyer and Devine Carama at Al’s Bar every month.  It serves as both a venue for bringing local hip hop artists above ground and a way to draw outsiders into the circle.

“There wasn’t really a monthly event for all of us to get together and celebrate hip hop as well as let new artists introduce themselves to the Kentucky audience,” said Dwyer.

The latest installment of Brown Sugar took place last Saturday, August 21, and featured the local-based lineup of Devine Carama, Kae State, Scoupe and Kuntry Noiz, plus guest DJ WarrenPeace.  The next is only a month away, so be on the lookout.
