Kap G
Fri. Aug. 18 | College Park, Georgia's George Ramirez landed on XXL magazine's coveted freshmen issue earlier this year on the strengths of his mixtapes and 2016 hit "Girlfriend." The Mexican-American rapper's 2017 tape, SupaJefe, fits alongside his Altanta contemporaries with big hooks and his melodic flow. J.R. Donato, Paper Paulk and DOON open at 10 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.
