It's a busy weekend, lots to do. Here's some of the stuff to see that's 253 Hip-Hop related:

                  Many of the shows this weekend exist around Luni Coleone, one of the biggest Hip-Hop artists to ever emerge from Sacramento, California. He's a West coast underground legend, and he actually comes to Tacoma and does his thing quite frequently. Luni's career is remarkable. He's dropped 21 albums since 1997! Coleone has got down with other West coast giants in his career, including X-Raided, Spice 1, Mac Dre, Brotha Lynch Hung, C-Bo, and many others. See him this Friday at the California Club with openers Tom Hutch, Big Bounce, and Sav Nights. This is an early all-ages show from 4-9pm, with a $10 admission. That's not too bad for a huge West coast artist like Luni. Immediately after the all-ages show is a 21+ show also at The California Club. This show features openers Tacnology Entertainment, Patron, Breathe Easy, and Beanz & Rize. This show starts at 9pm and is $15 to get in.

                  Saturday night, Tacoma's fav' Hip-Hop band, The Breaklites, are rocking Jazz Bones. Doors open at 6, show starts at 8pm, and its $8.50 for presale or $13 at the door. This is a mixed-bill; there'll be some rock music and some out-of-town touring talent.

                  Moving onto Sunday and the party just don't stop! At 1:30, Occupy Tacoma is celebrating its 1 Year Anniversary and holding an event at Occupation Park. Will they seize the park again? Who knows!? They will be having Hip-Hop and spoken-word that day with a performance from Beanz and Rize and other local artists. The entertainment starts at 4pm and there is an open-mic segment!

                  Then finally, to top it all off, is the legend Too Short at Jazz Bones! I'm not going to drop a bio' on Short, if ya don't know about him then you're probably not even reading this column right now - but to sum it all up, he is the O.G. of Oakland Hip-Hop, ‘nuff said. Leezy Soprano is opening, 6pm doors - 8pm show, 21+, $20 tickets in advance. Seeing Leezy and Short Dog at Jazz Bones is worth it. See ya'll around town!
