CFCU Downtown Ithaca Summer Concert Series presents: The Empire Kings & Mr. McBean

The Empire Kings

On July 16, The Empire Kings perform at CFCU Downtown Ithaca Summer Concert Series with Mr. McBean opening.  The Empire Kings is a Hip-Hop group based in Ithaca N.Y. The artists include Ave Mack, Dj Cdz Nutz, Shido, and Izzy B. The group takes pride in being a clear illustration of hip-hop culture from music to art. They describe their versatile music as songs about current events in our broken world that make you want to dance. Their performance features the classic two turntables and a microphone.  Mr. McBean is Ithaca-based rapper, producer and co-founder of our local label, Smacked Records.
