January 15th marks the day that Public Enemy, Too $hort, Cypress Hill, Tha Dogg Pound, Mellow Man Ace, Sir Jinx, Kid Frost, the L.A. Posse and The Egyptian Lover will put on a free concert on Skid Row in L.A.
The event, which takes place on Martin Luther King Day from 1:30-5:30, was organized by long-time activist Chuck D. and hip-hop producer/Skid Row activist General Jeff. The concert is being put on in hopes that it will bring awareness to the public about homelessness in L.A. and other areas of the U.S.
Another goal for the event is to persuade radio stations to support local artists and play their music, through a movement called "Occupy the Radio.
The public is urged to come out and show support- will you?
