What more can be said about this legendary MC, friend, father and true artist, who did a lot for Hip Hop, fellow artists and the battle rap game that hasn’t been said already? The friends and family of PH aka PUMPKINHEAD have dedicated ourselves to keeping his legacy alive, musically and in support of his seeds. The events are packed with great music from incredible artists, but are also a great time to reconnect with fam, remember PH and toast to those who are gone but not forgotten, as many good brothers and sisters have transcended in recent years.

Salute to EVERYBODY on the bill (and those not on the bill), because everyone is donating their time whether promoting, working the event or performing onstage. Previous memorial shows featured a gazillion artists, who were all PH’s friends and musical collaborators, but with so many on the stage each artist got very little shine in the few minutes allotted. This year we scaled it back a bit, so that the line up will not be the same every show and the artists have more time to pay homage with their musical renditions.

Shouts to Doc Ahk who did much of the legwork, booking and promotions, the flyer itself and is one of the best event promoters and stage managers in New York. The show is going to be incredible – of course. IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE will inspire, motivate and incite. APATHY joining us is a new treat. The CELLA DWELLAS are definitely a hometown favorite. While notorious for their battle rap careers, this is an awesome opportunity to hear artists like NEMS, DNA, CHARLIE CLIPS and Team HOMI flex their material, a countermeasure to the mumble rap music movement (YOU WILL HEAR ACTUAL WORDS! LOL) and represents 100% REAL HIP HOP.

These will be available at the event – while supplies last!!

As for my crew, The PLAGUE? … hell yeah, we will do our thing! Not about to let anybody upstage us, LOL. The BAD SEED is rocking joints from his new project SEED x NOTTZ, produced by NOTTZ obviously and that is all I need to know. Seed with the verses, Nottz with the beats. Let’s go!

Me (GMS), Wild Child, LR Blitzkrieg, PackFM, MrMecc and Tonedeff, plus Poison Pen (who reps Team Homi, Stronghold and The Plague) and DJ DP ONE are coming with some classics, but also some brand new material, which has never been performed before. All in honor of our fallen champion, the Underground King, PH aka PUMPKINHEAD!

Other DJ’s ECLIPSE, TOSHI & JOE BODEGA will keep the party rockin’ before, after and in between sets and the whole night will be hosted by EOW (End of the Weak) so this night is going to be extra special!

Celebrate Life!

Stay blessed!

C-Rayz Walz • L.I.F.E. Long • John Robinson • Jasiri X • ‘Stimuli’ (Video)

C-Rayz Walz drops a buttery self-directed video off his album ‘Almighty: The Solar Facts’ a “manifestation of godly bars.” Part 1 of a 9 album cycle from C-Rayz Walz, Almighty: The Solar Facts features Wordsworth, Q-Unique, Afu-Ra, Sadat X, Reef The Lost Cauze, Icon The Mic King, Tragedy Khadafi, Grandmaster Caz & myself, GMS, to name a few.

This cut Stimuli (I’m Ready), features L.I.F.E. Long (Stronghold), John Robinson (Scienz of Life) and Jasiri X, and was produced by Kentron The Mastodon. Besides being graced by MC’s who can truly spit, the chorus “I’m ready … to live my life” along with the positive energy of the track, will make you feel good about Hip Hop music.  No ice grilling in this video. All the MC’s drop science with a smile. The song is a celebration of life. Get you some.
