2FS First Show of 2015

The 1st 2FS show will be @the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts on 01/24/15. We are rocking for the Beat Shop, which is an organization dedicated to bringing beat workshops into classrooms. We will be rocking with the comrades BPos and our producer Decap.



Also, my brother Orukusaki of 2FS and ROTC’s Infinite will be rocking @the Great American Hall with La Gente on the same night. It’s going to be a busy night for the 2FS swordzmen..

Infinite “Double Beatdown” Video

Infinite is a seasoned veteran of the Bay Area Hip Hop scene; when I was finishing up my undergraduate degree at SFSU in the early 2000’s, him and Wonway were¬†widely recognized for being unfuckwitable in the local battle/ open-mic circuit. The “Double Beatdown” concept refers to his dual mastery of MCing and beatboxing. It was shot at the Return of the Cypher event at the Boom Boom Room, and features a brief cameo of basically everyone, ¬†including your truly.

Doin’ It in the Park @Delores Park 10/11

Our ROTC comrade Denero will be celebrating his birthday with a traditional Hip Hop party in the park! Please mark your calendars; 10/11 at Delores Park, BYOB, BBQ grills, and an extraordinary showcase featuring 2FS, Rick Stevens from the Tower of Power, DJ Kevvy Kev, and many more of our ROTC family members.

ROTC 1 Year Anniversary Showcase

You probably know by now that I help organize a weekly event called Return of the Cypher, which is an open-mic jam session at John Lee Hooker’s Boom Boom Room on Sunday nights. You probably know that it’s the fastest growing Hip Hop event in the Bay Area and that we have a very supportive community. If you were raised by the culture, you will feel like you finally made it home. All MC’s are encouraged to spit. We will be celebrating our one year anniversary on 06/15 with an amazing showcase filled with a diverse range of artists that have come through in the past year.

ROTC One Year

Preceding the anniversary showcase, the San Francisco Black Film Festival will be premiering “‘Til Infinity,” a Souls of Mischief documentary. Needless to say, it is extremely appropriate to host a world premier documentary about the Bay Area legends before our platoon of independent rappers set it off.
