Last year we told you about groundbreaking record label POW Recordings, purveyors of both authentic hip hop, and genre-bending underground musicians. Every Monday in August, POW Recordings is curating a residency at the Echo to showcase their artists and other people they think are good. Admission is free, and acts scheduled to perform include hot new rappers who you’ve likely never seen live before, like Inglewood’s own Natia, T.Y.E., and Chester Watson. Performing every Monday as sort of a trippy house band, Pioneer 11, will dazzle with originals and hopefully play their cover of Return of the Mack.

The events are 21+, check out the posters below for more info on each lineup, and visit to get more info on some of the artists set to perform.
