Rymeezee @ROTC 01/31/16

Rymeezee is a San Francisco MC I’ve know since the late nineties, and he was featured on my first debut cassette. It’s reassuring to witness an artist withstand the test of time, strengthen his grind, and continue developing. He is not only an emcee with an expansive catalog, but a fashion brand designer/ owner, juvenile justice case manage and a father of three boys.

Return of the Cypher will proudly have him as the featured performer on 01/31/16. Yours truly will be on hosting duties, alongside DJ Kevvy Kev, the Gem Stone Band, and all of our usual cast of dope characters.

“Pyrex poetry with potency of potpourri/ I know they feel it in the big cities overseas”

02/03 Update: Event went wonderful.. it’s really refreshing to see artists we book at ROTC come through with hella people, bring their own cameraman, and then upload the performance video within few days..

Black Saturday X Below the Surface

I will be rocking alongside my peoples the Understudies (DJ Citizen and Sean E. Depp) and Rymeezee (First Dirt Ent.) on 11/24/12 @ Below the Surface HQ in Newark (37800 Central Court Newark, CA 94560.) Even the least-materialistic participants in the scene are tempted to get fitted on Black Friday (well, it’s a Black Saturday in this case,) so mind as well get dripped in gear that is designed by independent artists for independent artists. Louis Vuitton does not care about you, and they do not design their attire thinking about you… so be an educated consumer, because you’re going to consume anyway. The Below the Surface site is here and you can check their collection here. The Facebook event page is here.

I would rock the ish outta this BTS hat, but it’s a snapback… For those of you who don’t know me personally, I have a chrome dome (7 5/8,) so I can’t do the snap…

Urban Art War @ Johnny V’s 10/13

Urban Art War @ Johnny V’s in San Jose, 10/13/12…

This show features a highly unorthodox format, where all artists are on stage the entire duration of the evening, and the DJ blends songs in an unannounced order. Not even the MC’s know who’s track is coming up… As organizer Luck Loosh puts it, it’s similar to “musical chairs.”
