Fourth of July 2013: Five Best Rap Parties in Miami
French Montana is bringing his whole block with him to Miami.
Fourth of July celebrations are a great American tradition. But you know what else is? Rap music.
Hip-hop started in these streets. No other country can claim rights to the birth of history's greatest and most influential genre of music. And so what if it started in New York City, Miami has embraced rap with all her heart, and we've got some of the best Fourth of July rap parties to prove it.
If you're looking for a little bump and grind, some gangsta lean, some good sticky-icky, these are the Fourth of July hangouts for you.
Ace Hood with DJ Epps, DJ Entice and DJ Griot. Wednesday, July 3, at Bamboo, 550 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Ages 21 and up. The party starts at 11 p.m., and tickets are $20 to $40 plus fees via wantickets.com. Call 305-695-4771 or visit bamboomiamibeach.com. You can't step outside without hearing Florida-boy Ace on the radio, especially his hit "Bugatti." He's a little guy, but he packs a huge punch on stage.
