About this Event

Red Bull Presents: Beantown Uprising. On September 27th at Artists for Humanity EpiCenter, Boston will come together to celebrate the rise of not only hip-hop music in Boston but everything that surrounds it as the city becomes a key stakeholder in the culture through music and streetwear.

Over the last few years, Boston has emerged as a cultural hub to be reckoned with as several artists began to make a name for themselves that translated beyond the local community. At the forefront of this is performer and hometown hero Cousin Stizz, one of the first to rise out of the city to a national audience.

Stizz is fresh of an incendiary return with his new album Trying To Find My Next Thrill which features Freddie Gibbs, City Girls and Smino. Michael Christmas, another Boston hip-hop mainstay, will also perform. He is one of the city's biggest trailblazers continually putting on for Boston since his 2014 debut mixtape Is This Art?. Since then he has taken Boston to the world, playing some of the biggest festivals including Lollapalooza, Fool's Gold Day Off, and Boston Calling.

The event will also feature a build out and exclusive merch from Boston streetwear and sneaker staple Bodega. A Boston-bred, high-end streetwear shop that has similarly received national attention since their inception in 2006.

Other performers include Van Buren (music collective from Brockton consisting of Luke Bar$, Lord Felix, Jiles, Meech, Saint Lyor and Ricky Felix), Bearly Yvng (DJ duo comprised of Boston scene staples DJ Big Bear and Improper Bostonian's DJ of the Year 2018 Yvnng Paul), and Where's Nasty (DJ and producer from Providence who has been on the scene since he was 16-years-old).

Cousin Stizz is an American rapper and songwriter from Boston, Massachusetts. He grew up in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts.

Michael Christmas, born and raised in Boston, broke onto the national hip-hop scene in 2014 on the heels of the release of his debut mixtape, Is This Art? He went on to tour the country throughout 2015, opening for Logic and Mac Miller on back-to-back runs, then released another full-length project, What A Weird Day. The album received widespread critical acclaim and led to Christmas's first headlining tour in 2016. Since then, the 24-year-old emcee has continued his efforts musically and on the road, highlighted by appearances at Boston Calling, Lollapalooza, Fool's Gold Day Off, and other major festivals. In 2018, Christmas inked a deal with Fool's Gold and together, the artist and label released Christmas's proper debut album, Role Model, which DJ Booth called "one of 2018's bright spots."
