Scarub and Toki Wright will perform at Agave in Avon Thursday.

When he wasn’t watching Yo MTV Raps or Pump It up, Scarub, like many other L.A. hip-hop heads, grew up listening to the all hip-hop radio station, KDAY. It was during these early years that Scarub first gave himself the name Quaz (The kid who did), and later Mudd Foot, before settling on Scarub as his emcee moniker. Scarub first hit the stage during an 8th grade talent show and he hasn’t looked back since. As a student at L.A.’s Hamilton High, Scarub hooked up with fellow students Eligh and Murs and the trio formed the 3 Meloncholy Gypsy’s or 3MG. Scarub like the rest of 3MG eventually made the move up to the bay area where he hooked up with Mystik Journeymen and was put down with the Living Legends crew.

Toki Wright will also perform. Most known as opening act and hypeman for Brother Ali, Wright is not only a well-established emcee but one of the hardest working community activists in the Twin Cities area. With numerous accolades Wright’s tour history has taken him from New York to Uganada.

Tickets are $8 and available for purchase at Agave, Get Hi Gallery, Eagle Valley Music, and online at http://www.rmentertainment.com, as well as at the door.
