Quality recordings from St. Louis heavyweights made 2011 a strong year for underground hip hop.
STL Loud is on its third volume and is going strong. The showcase on 11/11/11 featured five bands: Firedog, The Reeling Gilly, Superhero Killer, RIP (filling in for Rockwell Knuckles) and The Funky Butt Brass Band.
The second annual Saint Louis Underground Music festival, a hip-hop showcase featuring over 60 performers, was held at Atomic Cowboy this year.
