EOW NYC: DAMA NILLZ + DJ GMS + OPEN MIC! (Feb 16th)

EOW Dama Nillz and GMS flyer

Just a quick reminder that I will be spinning Sunday night, Feb 16th, at End of the Weak (#EOW, #EOdub, etc), the longest running weekly Hip Hop Open Mic event in NYC. Being that it is Valentine’s Day Weekend, the ‘Dub has enlisted in me to provide a soundtrack for the LOVE of HIP HOP, as I did on my recently released The LOVE IS Mixtape.

Since it is a special occasion I will be giving out a LIMITED EDITION physical CD of the 80 minute mix, to the first 100 people who show up, so be on time, or better yet, be early! The event starts at 7pm and goes to midnight.

The featured artist for the night is DAMA NILZ, a dope MC who is having it as her Release Party for her album It’s All About You, available on iTunes.

Here is footage of her last performance when she tore it down at EOW NYC! Skip to 1:37 where the actual song starts.

If you’ve got bars get down early and sign up for the OPEN MIC, hosted by Jess Jamez, Majesty, and Ayy Pii, with DJ Callabrass. MC’s start lining up for the Open Mic at 7 and the list is usually filled by 7:30, but sometimes not, so still ask for it if you get there later. There is no extra charge for signing up for the open mic. It’s usually $10, but you can now get advance Tickets for $7, here.  MC’s who rock the open mic perform at least one song or do 2 verses over the DJ’s beat.

DJ GI Joe & DJ DP One @ Irving Plaza, NYC (Video)

GI JOE DP ONE

DJ DP ONE & DJ GI JOE rep all elements of Hip Hop.

March 15th, Immortal Technique brought out the Turntable Anihilists DJ GI JOE and DJ DP ONE at his show at Irving Plaza, NYC. Technique gives praise to Southpaw, one of his main producers and  schools the crowd on elements of Hip Hop, including the importance of the DJ, then the two turntablists tore it down, effortlessly switching off between each other and at times scratching and cutting together, each on one of the two turntables, using upfaders and crossfaders both, to completely anihilate.

HIT SQUAD REUNION SHOW (NYC) – Review, History Lesson & Video Footage

HIT SQUAD

image by fraze1972

Last night New York experienced an incredible reunion show by the original Hip Hop crew that paved the way for the Rocafela Dynasty, YMCMB and just about any other hip hop crew that came after. In the early 90’s the Hit Squad established dominance as the ultimate hardcore “super-crew” consisting of EPMD, Redman, K-Solo, and Das EFX. It was on EPMD’s third (and some say best) album, Business As Usual that the “Hit Squad” was first mentioned. That album featured Redman. K-Solo had been featured on an earlier album and Das EFX on their next one, Business Never Personal, which also contained the mega hit “Headbanger“.

PH - HOLLYWOOD & COUNTY OF KINGS covers

Sparked by his leak of the song “HOLLYWOOD” and the official single “COUNTY OF KINGS”, PH’s buzz is heating up. Come listen to his Street LP “KNOW THE LEDGE” the day before it drops to find out why.

PH in MIAMI
The Brooklyn born lyricist PH (formerly known as “Pumpkinhead”) has always been an artist of integrity, respected by his vast following throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan and Australia. His ability to persevere in a hostile industry climate with no major label or industry co-sign is what has prompted many to hail him as the “Underground King” for years … (more…)
