Last month, Athens lost one of its most dynamic and outspoken musicians when hip-hop artist Anthony Little, aka Versatyle tha Wildchyld, died following an illness. In addition to his creative output, Little was actively involved in the local community, most notably establishing a mentoring program for aspiring young rappers called the Wild Wolf Pack. To raise money to support Little’s wife and children, friends and supporters have organized a benefit concert for Tuesday evening at Hendershot’s, featuring performances by Ishues with Dreaded Mindz, Celest Ngeve and others. The event will be hosted by Life the Griot and Knowa Johnson.
