State of the Art Tour: Lazurus, Inflowential 

When: Fri., July 20, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: $8-10

It's just occurred to Triangle hip-hop staple Lazurus to do what many rock bands have been doing for years: posse-up a bunch of (mostly) Triangle rappers in a minivan and hit select cities for concerts, in hopes of selling his troupe of relatively new voices as bona fide Carolina exports. It's not a bad idea, especially if you're rooting for the idea that the state's hip-hop scene deserves to becommoditized and recognized, given the recent successes of King Mez, Deniro Farrar and J. Cole. The ordeal kicks off here, at home, featuring the 9th Wonder-approved Fayetteville emcee Kaj Kadence, Durham's rowdy-rollers Wreck-N-Crew and emcee/ vocalist Sarah Kaboom, whose untapped rap sass could be this lineup's wild card.Lazurus also raps—sometimes too well—and nothing suggests that he'll be putting any of his talents on the back burner for this venture. —Eric Tullis
