Hip-hop duo REMI and poet/artist/songwriter Sampa The Great are reuniting and the stars have never been so aligned. After REMI and Sampa’s collab “For Good” released last year, these two artists have solidified their place in the hip-hop genre. Separately, REMI’s Dilla-inspired sounds and inimitable verses and Sampa’s raw poetry and vocals is something otherworldly, but together, it becomes something sacred and rare. Grab a ticket now to let REMI and Sampa The Great take you somewhere new.
