03/15/13 Conscious Hip Hop Night @ the Gilman

GilmanFlierYours truly will be doing a show with Sean E. Depp of the Understudies at the historical punk rock venue, the Gilman, on 03/15/2013… This is the third monthly event of independent Hip Hop at the venue; I’ve done a guest appearance and last minute set the last two months, and they’ve been really fun. The venue is all-ages, doesn’t sell alcohol (but does sell candy and sodas,) and even has a basketball hoop inside, so it’s perfect to bring your awkward teenage nephew just entering puberty.

Here is the cypher which broke out last month at the end of my comrade Ras Ceylon’s set… the audio is pretty horrible, but the energy is undeniable…

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…
