billy woods performing with KA @ Public Assembly

On August 31st, two of New York’s most celebrated new lyricists will be putting an exclamation mark on the summer, live at Public Assembly in Brooklyn. Since the February release of his sophmore LP, Grief Pedigree, KA has been lauded everywhere from Hiphopdx.com to the pages of the New York Times. All this without ever wavering from and even amid rumors that 50 Cent is trying to sign him, KA has stayed on the grind, releasing a slew of self-made videos that echo the gritty minimalism of his music. After rocking stages with Beanie Seigel and other hip-hop luminaries in recent months, this is KA’s first headlining gig in NYC since Grief Pedigree dropped! It is exciting and an honor to have billy woods open up for this show as it is sure to be a monumental one.
