“Baltimore Club Music Day is not just a celebration, it's a declaration of our city's unruly spirit and hip hop legacy. As a co-founder of Unruly Records and VP of DTLR, I am incredibly proud to be part of an event that recognizes the legendary status of Baltimore Club Music. This genre has given rise to some of the most culturally relevant songs and dance moves that have reverberated around the world,” says Caesar.
