This dude just made a beat on the drums with a boomerang.  Much respect to Dwele and Monica for showin' em how Detroit does it.  This dude just made a track in less 10 minutes that most MC's and producers couldn't do in a week.

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.

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.
