TheWHOevers are a Chicago-based hip hop duo formed by MCs J. Arthur and DotKom. Known for their high energy stage presence, melodic sounds and catchy lyrics, the WHOevers are dedicated to providing straight-forward, feel good hip hop music. Although it’s evident the duo’s musical roots are influenced by a number of musical genres, they use inspiration, imagination and life experience to produce honest lyrical content, consistantly winning over even the most diverse crowds. The combined power of “wild-child” lyrical genius MC Dotkom and the soul-infused sounds of MC J. Arthur create a distinct and unique approach that provides audiences with a fresh and relevant sound for the modern age. A force to be reckoned with, the WHOevers are surely launching toward the forefront of today’s Chicago hip hop scene.
Classified as one of the strongest storms ever recorded, Super Typhoon Haiyan devastated the Philippines on Nov. 8th, obliterating anything in its path. The aftermath of its power left thousands displaced, injured, hungry, thirsty, and with nothing to show except their uplifting spirits. Around the world, everyone has been doing their part as humanitarians in efforts to aid in the relief for the Philippines, and it should be our duty to respond with empathy and lead by example. As such, Filipino-American emcees Dotkom and J.Arthur (of the hip hop collective, theWHOevers) , rally to aid relief efforts currently underway by the Jose P. Rizal Heritage Center of Chicago (1332 W. Irving Park Rd.), a center in connection with the Filipino American Council of Greater Chicago.
Together with various artists, from across the city and beyond, the duo has pledged to donate partial proceeds from their December 6th Album Release Party to benefit a community and country they both represent and love. For only $10, this 18+ show, presented by GroundLift Media will include performances from some of Chicago’s up & comers, including theWHOevers, Markyboy, Fess Grandiose, and Martin $ky. Ticket holders are in for yet another treat with a special guest performance by Los Angeles emcee, Bambu (of Native Guns).
