Through the Mic: Medusa, Dumbfoundead, Gizzle

Last month’s inaugural installment of Through the Mic: LACMA X Hip Hop was my first true hip hop experience and one of the best nights of my musical life. The vibe was incredibly positive, and 3MG: Murs, Eligh, and Scarub put on an amazing show, capped off by an exclusive late-night run of Chris Burden’s Metropolis II for concertgoers. The series continues tomorrow night with Medusa, Dumbfoundead, and Gizzle.

The legendary Medusa has been dominating the scene for fifteen years, hailing from the storied Good Life Café, which also gave rise to Jurassic 5, Freestyle Fellowship, Kurupt, and more. She is among the top female rappers of all time, having twice been named L.A. Weekly’s hip hop artist of the year.

Koreatown’s very own Dumbfounded showed a penchant for hip hop from a young age and quickly became a central figure in the L.A. underground scene with his work with the collectives Project Blowed, Swim Team, and Knocksteady, which he helped to create.

Gizzle aka Lady G Da Real Deal is an up-and-coming artist who made waves with her first project, While You Were Sleeping. She’s just released Bxtch, I’m Gizzle, the highly anticipated follow-up to her debut.

Metropolis II will once again be open to late-night viewing after the concert—tickets are still on sale.
