When Sanjay Raj Shrestha founded CoffeeHubMusic.com last year, the goal was based around the types of musicians who specialized in coffee shop open mics. The plan was to promote their talents by way of events and videos that CoffeeHubMusic.com would produce and publish. But the area has long needed a proper outlet for up-and-coming wordsmiths to ply their trade.

The Hip-Hop Open Mic Night basically evolved out of that necessity. Artists needed a place to go, if only for networking. In turn, for the first time in a long time, there now exists a local outlet for like-minded artists to meet, collaborate and inspire one another.

And it is inspiring: The talent level stayed pretty high throughout last month's event, particularly during performances from newcomers Jmil Kly and Rulz.

Yep, the CoffeeHubMusic.com cats do it right: Theirs is an active, lively crowd that stays into the acts; their artists are fresh, young musicians who care about artistry; and, most important, their network is a contingent of people committed to making the scene grow free of ego.

For a city whose underground hip-hop culture has been bubbling on the brink of nationwide exposure for the last two-plus years, it's pretty likely that the Hip-Hop Open Mic Night may end up serving as the proving ground for Dallas' Next Big Thing.

@wordb @cam Damm , fuk u too. u gotto check it out first, hiphop has come a long way from just being a gansta rap. Try some Dustin Cavazos, Sore losers and A.Dd+, they from our d-town ... u mofos still live in 19th century, sorry ass loosers.

I'm glad I had the opportunity to come out, perform and provide insight, Nic. As an up and coming artist in a city like ours its important for us to build that underground niche. As most great movements begin underground anyway.
