Heat Of the week

Venue 578 is scouting local hip-hop talent to have a chance at competing for public exposure. During this weekly segment, we encourage artists to submit a song every Monday to participate in this event. Five songs will be selected by Venue 578 to go head to head in an online poll. The song with the most votes will be crowned Heat of the Week. The winner will receive a full bio page on our website, added to our Soundcloud, and have the possibility to perform at the venue. If thats not exciting enough, Venue 578 has now partnered with The Music Plug. 


submission monday's

Venue 578 & The Music Plug are excited to begin this weekly segment of supporting local hip-hop talent. Every week, we invite local rappers to submit their music to us via email. We had many artists send in their songs, and we were thrilled to get to hear what our city is producing finally. Are you a local hip-hop artist? Get your name buzzing and your music heard!

Cast your vote!

We listened to everything we were sent, and we narrowed it down to our five favorite songs of the week. The artists’ names and a link to their songs are displayed below. Please listen to all the songs and vote on which song you think is the best. Spread the word to everyone you know in the area that makes hip-hop. I think they'd appreciate the competition and promotion.


track of the week

Itchyglock “InfLuenSeD” 

Itchyglock is not your average rapper, he has a mindset that is determined and ready to take the game over. He wants to change the way Central FL is looked at in the rap game and he wants to work with other artists that want to work with him.He was born in 1999 and started rapping in 2015. It started as a hobby that he did for fun but when his friends actually started to like his songs he had a talent and couldn't waste it.
