Local hip-hop artist Quin Bookz first gained traction after making the mixtape Study Hall in a dorm room closet while attending Virginia State University. His raw, lackadaisical rhymes are described as “the rebel off-spring of trap music.” With his latest release, The Corner, his YouTube views are passing the 200,000 mark and the rap music press is seeking him out for interviews. Bookz takes the headlining spot this week at Show Me What You Got, a showcase of rising talent, and it’s a good chance to see him before he hits larger stages.

Friday 6/24. No cover, 8pm. M&M Lounge and Restaurant, 917 Preston Ave. 962-6575.
