LIVE from Criminal Records with KonsoleKingz in Atlanta, Georgia for the A3C Hip-Hop Festival, we brought a different kind of episode this week. Live interviews, Live freestyles, some great music, our special guest host Arablak and much more! Thanks to all our listeners who sent us down everyone who tuned and all the artists that came through for this special episode!
Detroit mainstay, (and guy I see at EVERY St. Andrew's Hip-Hop show) Marv Won taking all you terrible rappers to church for two straight minutes. Sit up, put your hands up, confess and repent your sins.
One of the best hip-hop shows I've seen all year and quite possibly the best hip-hop experience I've had my entire life.
In Episode #122 of the HoodHype show, Major and I had a bit of a conflict when the subject of live hip-hop shows came up. My stance has always been that hip-hop acts just seem to generally lack that feeling you get listening to their albums. They have always lacked any sort of real stage presence and the ability to completely captivate. Let me validate my opinion here. I've seen a few shows. Shows you'd expect to be crazy like Outkast, the Hard Knock Life Tour, Busta Rhymes, Kid Cudi, Jay-Z & Eminem etc etc etc. And while they all were entertaining, they always seemed like they were missing a lot. Overblown vocals, an emotionless, straight-faced DJ and a giant LED screen can only go so far, know what I mean? Read the rest of this entry »
Uh-oh,.... what's this?! More Detroit music?! Contrary to some people's opinions we are aware that hip-hop exists outside of the 313, but until the rest of the Mitten matches the output of hot tracks/videos we will continue to give the D the shine it deserves. Gutter track by the way.
We don't normally make a habit out of posting flyers here since it's so localized, but Major had a good point. It's in our back yard and these are two hot ass shows that are killing me to have to miss since we're all going out to Vegas for CES on the 8th and 9th.
Not only will Monica Blaire be doing a show earlier with RoSpit and Marvwon, but directly after at the legendary Shelter at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit is the Wayne Fontes CD release party featuring the likes of two of my favorite Detroit underground superstars, Miz Korona and Danny Brown.
Wish we could go, I know I'll be severely missing out on these shows.
Ro and Chef over at Burn Rubber are cookin up some more of that good Detroit goodness. Track comin up next!
Burn Rubber and Acapulgo Gold have come together to mash up a special collaboration entiltled "Detroit Riots", which pays homage to the Motor City and calls remembrance to the riots of 1967; a turning point in the city's saturated history. Burn Rubber will be releasing the Detroit Riots gear on December 26th.
To coincide with the marvelous Burn Rubber x Acapulco Gold joint venture a star studded team of emcees have come together to create the anthem for the 'Riot' gear. The home grown cast includes T3 (Slum Village), One Be Lo, Ro Spit, Black Milk, Marvwon, Buff1, Fat Ray, Phatboy Chef, and Fatt Father. In addition to the song there are special ringtones and wallpapers available for everyone to grab.
Detroit did hip-hop fans real proud this night as everyone came together to support hip-hop manager /impresario / AllHipHop.com writer / Twitter extraordinaire HexMurda. Not only was there a great turnout and a really positive vibe, but the shows were off the hook and the crowd was full of energy. We met a lot of great people that night and saw ALOT of great artists rippin up the stage.
I feel sick that I not only had to knock the hour of footage down to 25 minutes, but I also had to break it up into three 10-minute videos (youtube). If you have any suggestions for somewhere I can upload a full hour of footage, let me know as I'd love to post the entire hour of footage somewhere.
My apologies for the shaky flip cam and distorted audio. Alot of excitement, a few drinks (more than a few), and being 3 feet from the stage speakers will do that lol.
