PLATTSBURGH, NY (March. 26th, 2015) - Hip hop may not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about the Plattsburgh music scene, but on Thursday, March 26th, live hip hop music will be taking over downtown. The Return of Beats & Rhymes will bring a showcase of nine local emcees to the stage at Monopole, backed by a three piece live band. The showcase will run from 10 pm to 2 am at the 21+ venue, and aims to shine a light on the burgeoning North Country hip hop scene.

Amongst those performing, Plattsburgh transplant Peso131, a.k.a Mitchell Graham, is a seasoned performer who came onto the hip hop scene in the early 1980s as a member of the Fearless Four, the first hip hop crew to sign to a major label. In contrast, Pmoney, a.k.a. Anthony Panneti, will be making his stage debut at the showcase. "These are all working class local folks who put a lot into their art. It's very exciting to see so much local talent coming together to make this happen", said Vyce-Virsa, who will also be performing at the event.

The Monopole is located at 7 Protection Avenue in downtown Plattsburgh. For more information on all the performers and the event, visit
