Charisma and ingenuity have been Stik Figa's ace-in-the-hole since his days battle-rapping in the Topeka High cafeteria. With a no-coast style that's equally enamored with the crescent-fresh mainstream (Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, T.I.) and the booty-shaking fringe (Cool Kids, Santogold), Figa is Southerner by blood and a Midwesterner by choice. As Stik Figa puts it: "I'm very well-rounded for being a square." Tonight, Stik will perform an extra-long set featuring cuts from his new disc "Mental Liberation."
