All kinds of rhyme-prone characters show up to Blue Collar Gentlemen parties. It's an event where the underground rears its ugly head and everyone who's paying attention pays their respects. From time to time, there's some unexpected cameo, and the night gets becomes fleeting folklore. You never know who's going to bless the Blue Collar microphone, but you can bet your blunt that multiple rappers rapping in multiple styles will go toe to toe until someone lights that mic da fuck up. If you're looking for solid, non-shiesty-ass dudes in regional rap, this is where you need to be. It's like that.
