85th is a hip-hop collective that got its start in Woodhaven, Queens. The group consists of rappers 21 Quest, Eleagle, Matt Cronin, and DGoD, along with producer Ken-I. Together, these rappers incorporate into their music influences from poetry, spoken word, battle rapping, and music showcases. 85th has performed at The Apollo Theater, Webster Hall, CUNY and SUNY Colleges, and right here at B.B. King Blues Club. The outfit also recently opened up for Slum Village at The Knitting Factory, flew to Germany for the Bronx/Berlin Connection, made it to the finals of the Knicks Poetry Slam, and were featured on the MSG Channel. In other words, these guys have been keeping busy. Join the greatest unsigned rappers from Queens tonight as they celebrate the release of their latest album.
