Legit rappers in the Inland Empire may be hard to come by, but don’t you worry. This weekend, the hip-hop entertainment will be at Machine Pomona, where Sahtyre is dominating the stage alongside some of the Weekly’s favorites including Curtiss King and Noa James. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with this up-and-coming artist, Sahtyre’s first mixed tape, High Saht, hit the streets back in ’09. Since then, he’s released numerous successful albums including his newest album L.S.D., which is an acronym for “Love. Sex. Drugs.” With an album name like that, it’s no surprise this hip-hop sensation got kicked out of college for drug-use and excessive partying. His songs entitled “Broccoli” and his hit release “Getting’ High” continue with this theme, delivering more than enough drug references to get you really pumped for his show this weekend. Want to see more of Sahtyre? Check out his music videos—the sexually graphic lyrics paired with lustful imagery of ladies make you want to indulge in the debauchery of this word-slinger. Rock your body to his faint dub step beat that’s crushed by his heavy lyrics and forget the other wannabe-original players in the game. Sahtyre’s swagger is that of a true lyrical genius, unlike anyone you’ve ever heard before.
Machine Pomona, 273 S. Park Ave., Pomona, machinepomona.com. $10-12. Sat, June 22. 8pm.
CORRECTION/UPDATE: This post previously stated that Sahtyre was slated to perform at The Glass House in Pomona on Saturday, June 22. The correct venue was Machine Pomona.
