If you enjoyed the realness and lyricism that Capes brought to the mic at last year's fest when he rocked cuts from his 2016 opus Concrete Dreams, then you must not miss Rasheed Jamal at the 2018 festival. Friends and frequent collaborators as part of the local collective FRSH TRB, listen to them trade verses on "5 Finger Discount."
