Ramon Ramirez has this week’s cover story with a lengthy profile of Fat Trel, D.C.’s fastest-rising hip-hop star. Michael J. West leads the arts section with a look into The Enterprise jazz club’s somewhat bizarre lawsuit against its landlord. Lydia DePillis reviews Freedom’s Cap, Guy Gugliotta‘s book chronicling the design and construction of the U.S. Capitol, and the political arguments that nearly derailed the project. Tricia Olszewski reviews Jeff, Who Lives at Home, an uneven departure from the mumblecore genre that gets plenty right, and 21 Jump Street, a useless comedic remake of the early-’90s police procedural. Rebecca J. Ritzel reviews Keegan Theatre’s Twelve Angry Men, but only has kind words for 10 of them. And in One Track Mind, Steve Kiviat talks with Ivorian-American combo Zieti about its new album.
