There is no doubt that change is upon us. Thankfully we have Mr. Lif to provide the soundtrack for a remarkably historic time in our nation. Lif’s “I Heard It Today” is a bellwether of social truths that will be brought directly to the people – opening at SXSW in Austin Texas on March 20 and concluding on June 13 in Cleveland Ohio. Mr. Lif’s continually progressing talent has been praised by countless publications and musicians alike, not to mention the rabid fan base this Boston-bred MC has cultivated along the way. This is the latest chapter in Lif’s prolific legacy of top-notch lyricism, an unmatched charisma and ear for top-notch production. With Statik aka Mr. Sonny James (of Illvibe Collective) on the wheels, and openers Grieves and Willie Evans Jr. these shows are not to be missed! More information below.

Check for additional tour dates:

“Lif tackles the dehumanizing dysfunction of capitalism and its dramatic effect upon a b-boy everyman, including a dissection of commerce’s influence upon art, family and spirituality…we need it now more than ever” – PITCHFORK

“Lif and learn. Boston’s reflective rhyme warrior, Mr. Lif opens minds with an open mic…he is one of alt-hip hops hottest commodities”

“The massively dreadlocked rapper never fails to get a crowd up with his smart, politically aware aware rhymes.”
