Diabolic

When: Thu., June 7 2012

Diabolic has spent enough time in battle-rap competitions to have left that scene far behind. But if his viral "Frontlines" video (4 million hits and counting) is any indicator, the Long Island-born emcee still has plenty of fight left in him. "I walk the fine line between Einstein and Charles Manson," he raps in the 2010 clip, a shotgun slung menacingly over his shoulder. It doesn't hurt that Diabolic's tight with Immortal Technique, whose razor-sharp guest rap ends up stealing the track — although that would be the case with pretty much any emcee that Technique went mic-to-mic with. You can catch Diabolic tonight when he headlines the "Back to Raw Rap Show" at Union Station (2419 N. Union Blvd., unionstationrox.com). Tickets run from $10 to $15 for the 18-plus show, and doors open at 8, with Kris Harlow, Device, Ibe Hustles and the Insects sharing the bill. — Bill Forman
