Tonight at Southpaw in Brooklyn, Random Axe will take the stage, spitting the sort of raw boom bap hip-hop heads have been missing. Detroit producer/emcee Black Milk provides the sample heavy beats that each emcee—Sean Price, Guilty Simpson, and Milk himself—in the supergroup takes a turn destroying. Over chunky drums and enormous bass, the divergent flows of the three emcees find a murderous chemistry together. Check out the video for "The Hex," which paints a picture of what this group is all about. (Hint: they've got a dude tied up in a hotel room, about to enact something in the vein of Meth and Rae's threats on the first Wu-Tang LP.)

Doors for tonight's show open at 8. Black Moon and Skyzoo open things up at this Complex Media sponsored event. Let's get grimy, y'all.
