Mixx Master's Lounge


Name this song: "Clap your hands everybody/ If you got what it takes/ 'Cause I'm Kurtis Blow and I want you to know/ That these are the breaks." Where were you back in 1980 when hip-hop's first mainstream star Kurtis Blow released the classic, "The Breaks"? More than likely, you probably weren't even born yet. But it's still all-good because you can still say "I remember when I saw Kurtis Blow live in Charlotte back in 2006." That's right the forefather of rap is coming here, joined with reggae legend Papa San, Christopher "Play Martin of Kid N Play, Lecrae, Pettidee, Urban D, DJ Morphizz, Soul P., Lyricist, Eddie Velez and more. The Inspiration Network is taping an episode of its original cable TV series, "Mixx Master's Lounge," featuring the stars at its MediaComm teleproduction facility located at 9700 Southern Pines Blvd. Admission is free, but reservations are required. The tapings begin Thursday, Sept. 14 and continue until Saturday, Sept. 16. Doors open at 6:15pm nightly. Get tickets by calling 704-561-7809 or by visiting
