The last time Play Havoc played Cleveland, we told you it would be the local hip-hop show of the year. We hereby retract that statement. This will be the show of the year, for real, guaranteed. Because this time, Play Havoc -- the positive-powered hip-hop group whose All Things Due might have been Northeast Ohio's best underground rap record of 2006 -- will be co-headlining with Spittin Image, Scene readers' 2004 hip-hop group of the year, who are returning to the stage after a prolonged absence. (SI's Fitty was busy making beats for 50 Cent and K-Slay, as half of the Kickdrums production team.) Also on the bill is the IV League, an all-star crew with smarts and beats to rival them both.
