Opening tonight, Friday October 4th, at LA's Mayfair Hotel will be the Concrete Jungle street art exhibition that is masterminded by Chali 2na (Jurassic 5, Ozomatali, House Of Vibe etc.) who created and curated the unique exhibit. Not just a musician and noted emcee, known worldwide for his distinctive, instantly recognizable, deep baritone lyrical flow, Chali 2na is a true renaissance man whose many titles include actor, voice-artist, painter and mixed media curator.

For his brand new, multi-faceted Concrete Jungle exhibit, that opens tonight at 7pm (free) at the Mayfair Hotel's in-house Regime Contemporary Art Gallery (1256 W 7th St), the multi-talented artist will "transform the hotel's atrium into a jungle, complete with sounds and visuals to compliment Chali's 2na's life-like animal graffiti murals," according to a gallery spokesperson. To secure a place on the guest list go to eventbrite.

Then at 10pm tonight, following the opening reception for his art exhibit, Chali 2na (whose most recent release is his collab with Krafty Kuts; Adventures of a Reluctant Superhero) will join as special guest of the night, his longtime musical partner in J5 and Ozomatali , turntablist/producer extraordinaire Cut Chemist and others at the launch of the new LA monthly party DRIP that will also be held inside the recently revamped Mayfair Hotel inside the library bar at Regime 72.

At DRIP tonight Cut Chemist and Chali 2na will share a bill with opener Ry Toast plus host Traci P at this premiere first-Friday monthly. Similar to this evening's earlier art exhibition, this party is also a free event but it is recommended to get on list beforehand via EventBrite

Also on exhibit at the Mayfair Hotel's Regime Contemporary Art Gallery is a photo and album cover exhibition by longtime hip-hop photographer Danny Hastings. The exhibit, that opened last night and runs through October 21st, includes such album covers as the Wu-Tang Clan's landmark debut Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers, Big Pun’s Capital Punishment and NasI Am....
