It's not every day that a new groovy rap song is released about Maine's Capital city. However, today is one of those exceptions. I guess you could say it's been kind of a big year for our modest little city. Not only do we have a new rap song, but the city was also featured on Down East Magazine's cover in March of this year in an issue all about Maine's best places to live.

A new song from Ben The Maker was released last night, complete with a music video all about our awesome city. According to the City's website, In 1799, Augusta became the shire town of the newly formed Kennebec County. In 1827, the town was designated the capital of Maine, which had entered the union in 1820 as the 23rd state. The Maine Legislature met here for the first time in January, 1832. Augusta was chartered as a city in 1849.

You'll notice all kinds of Augusta streets, landmarks and businesses mentioned throughout the song, too. When you listen, see if you can catch a reference to 92 Moose. We bet you can!
