This is a platform created to showcase, spotlight, and celebrate the local talents in the Abuja hip-hop scene.

The BUJ Industry Night is a joint collaboration of Rhyme & Reason and the BUJ KNIGHTS. It is set to hold monthly.

We all know having a timeout from the daily stress with good music in the background has never gone wrong.
