Last Night BBAS Thursday & MORE!

Last night was so incredible!

Brown Bag AllStars (BBAS) Thursday was super packed, especially on a
night where there was an incredible tribute to the Late DJ Roc Raida.
I was lucky to have met him through MF GRIMM and he was such a great
pioneer for the DJ element of hip hop. Rest In Peace

At my show last night, something happened once again that I can't explain. You just had to be there. Me, my boy Majesty and this young poetess named Shreen tore Brown Bag Allstars Thursday night apart! It was probably one of the most unique stage performances I've ever done because of the way we mixed spoken word poetry with hip hop! Like I said you just had to be there. haha..

There was probably 100 people there and to see that type of reaction from the crowd showed me the true power of words...I was humbled! We did pretty good from what I was told ;-)

In addition to my 3 bosses from my day job showing up to support me (yes my bosses were there to support me!!!) there was a legendary hip hop photographer in the house that photographed over 25 years of hip hop history. He's also the author of the book "Who Shot Ya?" ...his name.. Brother Ernie. He's responsible for tons of images that documented the birth of "Hip Hop!" For a pioneer like that to show that kind of love, man... I was really humbled...just blow away...he got some
snapshots of me tearing up the stage so hopefully I can post those soon.. ;-) Shouts to the BBAS especially J57 for booking me to do the show..I really appreciate that bro! Yesterday was a blessing! The freestyle cypher at the end..was crazy.. Majesty, DVS, Joe Columbo, J Money and Concept went bonkers!
