50 Years of Hip-Hop Music Concert Series

March 23rd, 2023

Decatur, Georgia – Dope Coffee Music, a division of Dope Coffee, has launched a new concert series that celebrates the pioneers and legacy of hip-hop culture. The 50 Years of Hip-Hop Music series will showcase local independent artists across the music genres of rap, jazz, R&B, and experimental music that led to the rise of hip-hop's globally dominant culture.

(Artists looking to join the showcase can submit their work here for consideration.)

The series will kick off on Thursday, April 6th, at Dope Coffee Music's newly launched coffee roastery and live events venue in Decatur, GA.


The concerts will run bi-weekly until the early summer and will be hosted by Creative Mike The Rapper.

Dope Coffee's CEO, Mike Loyd, also known as Creative Mike The Rapper, launched the music series to promote artists who otherwise wouldn't be able to bring their talent to the stage while also honoring those who laid the groundwork for hip-hop culture.

Creative Mike will host the event and perform tracks from Dope Coffee's debut album release, Spinach, which was produced by the company's CMO, Stace Loyd, with vocal additions by the company's CPO, Chel Loyd.

The spring concert series will feature a hybrid format consisting of local underground heavyweights and up-and-coming artists with little fanbase. According to Creative Mike, "This environment will be nurturing and inclusive, with the overall goal being to showcase talent and push the culture forward in hip-hop. Expect to see hip-hop in a mentally and emotionally stimulating format that challenges our community to escape the violence and drug-laden environments we find ourselves in.

"The 50 Years Of Hip-Hop series will not be PG-rated," says Creative Mike. "I want to give voice to all of hip-hop, to bring us back to our roots where hip-hop was a voice for the people and the culture. Expect to hear elements of rap, jazz, R&B, and even experimental and visual hip-hop in a way that expands upon the culture, not pigeonholes us into a self-denigrating, self-deprecating group of creative zombies."

Concert Series Details

The show features a bi-weekly format consisting of five artists per show performing 2-3 tracks, as well as an endless coffee bar. The Coffee & Hip-Hop series will last for seven weeks, every other Thursday, with the first show scheduled for April 6th, 2023, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm.
