Riders Against the Storm, the husband and wife hip hop duo who hold a firm stance against the “storm” of tired, often debilitating mainstream music and media are sending much needed shockwaves within and beyond the modern hip hop community. After establishing themselves in Rhode Island, Chaka Mpeanaji and his wife Tiger Lily moved to Austin in 2009 and have already cemented themselves as an influential and uplifting pair of MCs. Other than trading lyrically charged verses, Chaka and Tiger Lily have helped co-found Body Rock (with fellow Austinite DJ Chorizo Funk), a monthly underground dance party hosted by The Sahara Lounge.
Riders Against the Storm is taking the city by storm this Saturday, August 30th for a day full of music from artists like Jackie Venson, RAS, Las Krudas, Gina Chavez, Elizabeth McQueen at Kenny Dorham’s Backyard Garden.
