Combine eclectic beats, live art, and exuberant lyricism into a bowl. Stir for 3 hours.

This recipe is what creates Cre3sol’s “Beats, Bars, and Brushes” (B3), a quarterly event held yesterday (January 25) at Baltimore’s renowned hip hop spot City of Gods Shop. B3 brought together various Baltimore artists for a night of beat showcasing, rhyme cyphers, and visual art. Producers were allotted a 20-30 minute time slot in order to play their beats while rappers jumped on the mic to flow over them, leaving the audience to judge the hotness of the track. Visual artist Laanarchy vibed off of the energy to create a piece of artwork to be sold at the end of the night. The newest feature of B3, an emcee battle, featured artists such as Gillateen of The Terrorpens, Ashley Sierra of Charm Committee, J Tesla, and Icon.

The winner of the emcee battle went to Ashley Sierra, who received the most positive feedback from the audience for her performance. If you missed the show check out more images in the slideshow below, and follow cre3sol blog for updates on the next installment of B3 in July.
