It looks like 217hiphop.com and The Kick-It-Coalition are hard at work setting up a big event next weekend incorporating some Southtown spaces – Dumb Records and Black Sheep – as well as the new HISO Music Recording Studio. We are excited to be working with all of those different groups on this event, being called the “Midwest Industry Insiders Conference” geared more towards those interested in an inside look at the entertainment industry from a hip hop and R&B standpoint. The conference is going to be an all day thing with different events taking place at the different locations. Let’s take a look at what’s planned:
