Mo Events: Van Hunt, Erykah Badu, Mass Appeal’s Starting 5 Tour + more

Slo*Mo is dedicated to spreading the word about the best soul-centric shows and events in the ATL. Here’s a look at our top picks:

Cantrell, from the Starting 5 Tour

March 5: Mass Appeal’s Starting 5 Tour. Folks who complain about the current state of hip-hop and claim that “they just don’t make rappers like they used to” need to find their way over to Vinyl tonight for Mass Appeal’s Starting 5 Tour. The concert series features a slate of young rappers — like Fashawn, STRO, EZRI, 070 Phi … and Albany, Georgia’s own Cantrell — who can actually spit and have built a rep for crafting new music that invokes the spirit of the genre’s best material. So, get a ticket, and feast your ears on the next generation of dope MCs. Free. 7 p.m. Vinyl, 1374 West Peachtree Street. http://www.centerstage-atlanta.com.
