Went to Sony & FlowTV Present’s- Hip Hop Live! 2008 last night and had a great tiime!
If you live in Diego….and you slept on this one….shame on you!!
My Boy Dave NY and Kweli blessed me again.
Nuff respect to both of yall.
So it was a jammed packed house….including:
Rhythm Roots All-stars out of LA…they were the house band last night…and damn if they didn’t play their asses off!!!! They did every beat to every song for every artist and they opened up with some old school break beats! Yo…for the real hip hop heads…this was a treat to hear percussion and horns live! \
Then Little Brother Steps up to rip the stage and man….gotta say…these cats do they thing!
Shout out to Big Pooh and Phonte! Mad humble cats!
Next up to bat is Mr. M I S S I S S I P P I….none other than…David Banner.
Yo talk about energy…this cat performed his show in the crowd! On a bar stool and standing on tables n shit.
Running up and down steps! I was like this Muthasuka is CRAZY! I respect that out of this guy and am now a new fan!
He was intense and the man made me tired watching his performance.
Then Kweli is the anchor leg….and as usual…gives an awesome performance.
The dude has like 6 lungs…his breathe control alone is amazing…I tried to keep up with a few of his lyrics and got dizzy!
Did I mention that the band new every tune, beat, riff…etc….? WOW
Then Kweli brings out Strong Arm Steady, Planet Asia and Main Flow. Again Wow!
So I gots to chill with all these cats…and must say…they mad cool.
Especially one of the chillest spectators…Aftermath prodigy himself…Bishop Lamont!
Again…if you live in Diego…and you slept…shame on you!
If you don’t support hip hop …how you expect to get this place on the map so your favorite artist actually visits? (I’ll save that for another rant)
Shout out to Bishop for treating me like fam.
