Ages 12 and up ONLY. Free. No registration required. 

ARTIST BIO : 
Rich Flizzy Flow is an emcee who was born in the 610 area of Pennsylvania. Despite the challenges of growing up in a small borough, he has represented Norristown in a big way. In the top of 2017 he was awarded 5 out of 7 victories on the POWER106 radio segment 'LIFTOFF' powered by DJ Sourmilk & Justin Credible of the LA LEAKERS. In early 2016 he was awarded the Young Achiever plaque by Norristown Men of Excellence and The House of Representatives of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for his continued service of influential ethic in the Norristown community. In 2015 he was issued a section in the XXL MAGAZINE freshmen edition as an artist on the rise. His announcement video made Power 99's top 20 unsigned artist contest for a chance to open at Power House 2014. He has curated his own annual concert in Norristown since 2013. He's continued to build a fan base of friends, family, & genuine lyric lovers who believe in his body of work. He tactfully shares his views and feelings on life through his music. Growing up, he listened to whatever his older brother's took interest in. As a result, Flizzy was raised on Nas, Lupe Fiasco, Lauryn Hill, and many more conscious hearted artist who emerged in the mid 2000's. This exposure has shaped his perspective on the hip hop culture. With this in mind, he has amassed 5 studio EPs independently since age 17. Flizzy offers the world of modern day Babylon an unmarked form of Hip Hop. He intends to continue touring in order to turn his home base following into a wider audience.
