Paid Dues is an urban lifestyle event presented by underground hip hop legend Murs, in association with Guerilla Union. Paid Dues represents the vibrant indie rap scene that is often shunned by mainstream popularity.
With past appearances by Ice Cube, TECH N9NE, Raekwon, Tha Dogg Pound, E-40, Slaughterhouse, Jay Electronica, Black Star, Immortal Technique, Bun B, Del the Funky Homosapien, Atmosphere, Living Legends, Blackalicious, Dilated Peoples, Little Brother, Kool Keith, Brother Ali, Jean Grae, Visionaries, Devin the Dude, Evidence, to name a few, this festival is one of the premier hip hop festivals in the U.S.
Paid Dues now 6 years strong, will be adding Lecrae to the 2012 lineup along with Wu Tang Clan, Odd Future, and Hieroglyphics, offering a chance for Lecrae and Reach Records to continue their focus of being missional to the hip hop culture. We're excited when Lecrae gets opportunities on this type of platform as it is one more step to breaking down the label barrier between Hip Hop and Christian Hip Hop, making it easier for other Christian artists to gain press and exposure in the world so we can all be truly missional with the music.
