About the Facilitator:
Slangston Hughes’ music is a fresh blend of sensible lyrics, head bobbing beats, and unpredictably witty wordplay. His first mixtape, Money & The Message, put an emphasis on lyrical tenacity and subject matter with meaning. It also featured original production from several local producers in addition to Power 102.9 FM’s own DJ Mike Swift.
THE Connoisseur of Fine Rhyme was the first ever two and three-time winner of the Microphone Co-Rivalry Emcee Competition, a tournament-style, crowd judged emcee contest. Hughes, as a solo artist, bandleader and member of New Orleans supergroups Tygah Woods and Superugly has opened for Freddie Gibbs, Black Milk, Doomtree, Gift of Gab, Akil (Jurassic 5), Mickey Factz, etc. Slangston is the founder and curator of Uniquity, a monthly showcase that highlights the variety of talent in New Orleans and honors the city’s musical roots, backed by live fusion jazz band, Fo On the Flo. He is also one of three Revolt TV Local Love Tour (New Orleans) winners and a contributing author to New Orleans: The Underground Guide (2010).
