TUCSON, AZ: The Tucson Hip Hop Festival (THHF) returns for its third installation on March 9, 2019. The festival, held on the grounds around 191 Toole, celebrates all the elements of hip-hop, including rap, graffiti, bgirl/bboying and deejaying and will feature more than 100 local and regional artists across 9 stages. Brooklyn-based duo The Underachievers is set to headline fresh off the release of its “Deebo” single in anticipation of the Lords of Flatbush 3 project.
