I will be performing a set for the Benefit Show to abolish modern slavery tonight (01/07/12) at the Rockit Room in San Francisco… The almighty DJ Delrocks of the Zulu Nation will be holding down my set, and my comrades MC Dregs1 and Vago NS will be making special guest appearances… I’ll be debuting a new songfrom my upcoming EP and it’s the first 2012 show… so come rock with me for a righteous cause!!
This local SF spot is a cafe, restaurant, and a laundromat…
AND they have their own dry cleaning service…
SO, get your dirty socks and flannel shirts
and come through.
My brother Mezmetic will be holding down my set.
House Kombucha Footage
Here is footage of the intro part of my set @ the Inks of Truth event
@House Kombucha; DJ Delrocks of the Universal Zulu Nation
held down my set… Local favorites Gas Mask Colony, Sco Journers,
and Z-Man were also in the building and did amazing sets…
also, SF legend Equipto took the crowd through a timeline of his work…
Extremely successful show! Props to the homie Patience and
House Kombucha crew!!
I was stoked that SF MC Equipto from the legendary Bored Stiff crew was performing…
Who remembers the Timeless album? I still have the cassette somewhere at mom’s house.
Swordz Up! Intro
Okay, here is a short clip which was uploaded by an amateur
videographer of Cloud Ni9ne and myself. Yo boy is preaching about how
the ability to rhyme is like a passport that will get you anywhere
before we go in to the Swordz Up! Remix.
Taken @ the Premium event in Shibuya in early September.
1st Annual International Hip Hop Fest
I will be performing @ the first annual International Hip Hop Fest on 04/01 and 04/02; artists from Mexico, Chile, Cuba, Africa, and Japan, will collaborate to bring you an evening of global Hip Hop… and to prove once and for all, that this is an ‘international’ language. DJ DnZ of the Amazing Zoo Crew will be holding down my sets.
Sometimes the stars align. Once in a blue moon, the universe is in perfect synchronicity with everything, and all the anxieties associated with being a lifelong independent artist vanishes and I’m glad to be me.. The RZA of the Wu Tang Clan made a special guest appearance at Return of the Cypher. The RZA is friends with my DJ Kevvy Kev; they have gone on national tours together and continue to dominate the chess world as well. The Abbot’s impromptu performance was easily one of the most memorable Hip Hop moments for me; it was surreal to see the RZA on a stage I consider my home. (For those of you who still don’t know, ROTC is every Sunday night from 9:00 to 2:00 at the Boom Boom Room.. we have live cyphers backed by a live band open to the public and weekly featured performers.)
If you know me in real life, you know my allegiance to the Wu; it is an understatement to say that they have had an immeasurable influence on my artist and human development. Without “Only Built for Cuban Linx..”, Kensho Kuma wouldn’t exist. Ghostface is one of the two best MC’s alive to me (other one being Black Thought.) I will forever study the “Liquid Swords.” My entire wardrobe is influenced by the Wu aesthetic. Not only is RZA responsible for the Wu Tang soundscape.. he created the Wu world, filled with mafia, kung fu, ninjas, drug heists gone wrong, 5 percent lessons.. and this is the dimension that gave birth to a generation of artists like myself. Thank you and Wu Tang Forever!!
