Nazeem & Spencer Joles are two of the brightest young artists emerging within the Twin Cities hip hop scene. The duo followed up their 2016 project, The Album, with this years critically acclaimed, Years of Obscurity; it’s hard to imagine that they could have progressed so much. Arguably Minnesota’s best hip hop releases of 2017, Years of Obscurity feels like something that marks the beginning of a larger quest. The two will be live at First Avenue’s 7th Street Entry tonight along with DJ Keezy, the door is 18+ and tickets are still available for only $10. This is a must see show that will most likely sell out, click the link below to buy your tickets now.

Make sure to stay tuned for more recaps to come!
