Video: Family Affair, "Rotation"



Judging by all the quality music that's surfaced in recent weeks, Cicero's is the place to be tonight if you dig local hip-hop. On the bill is Tef Poe -- who shared thoughts about his new album, War Machine, and his 2011 plans with A to Z earlier this week -- the Chalk Boyz, Whiteout and Family Affair. The latter act is releasing a new mixtape, Before the Return, on January 31, and a few days ago it unveiled a track from the release, "Rotation." It's a creative leap forward for the act, a brisk, catchy tune with hooks, taut percussion and scratching galore. Check it out below. The Cicero's show starts at 8:30 p.m., and admission is $7.
