Though based out of Savannah, rapper and producer Kedrick Mack, aka Dope KNife, has formed a close relationship with the Athens scene over the past couple of years. In advance of the release of his upcoming LP, the boom-bappy, Roots-nodding Things Got Worse, he’ll play a collaborative set with local favorite Linqua Franqa as WOR. The performance is part of a showcase presented by alt-rap duo Clip Art. The stacked bill also features Athens upstart Kxng Blanco, longtime scene boss Dictator and former Deaf Judge Louie Larceny, who will be joined by producer and emcee extraordinaire Wes Johnson, aka WesdaRuler. Mack will play a proper album-release show at Little Kings on May 17.
