If you didn't catch local poet and beat maker Enrique García Naranjo's piece in the L.A. Times in May, you'll want to check out "What Is Mexcellent?" right now online for a great read on Tucson's southside. It's uplifting, gives voice to marginalized communities through the written word. However, this multi-talented writer and performer has more in store for Tucson, specifically with the release of his beat tape titled [sin ti]. Sunny and chill, with a handful of recognizable pop, rock and R&B samples from Michael Jackson, The Beatles and more, the tape showcases García Naranjo's work under the moniker DJQ, offering up soul-satisfying grooves to help you mellow out on those hot summer days.

[sin ti] will be released on Thursday, July 28 at La Pilita Cultural Center on Thursday, July 28. The event, which aims to showcase hip hop, poetry and photography, runs from 7:30 until 9:30 p.m. The event is free and open to all ages.
