It's no secret that Detroit is home to some of the most talented artists in the industry that a lot of people aren't too familiar with (yet).  But that's not what amazes me about events like this in the D.  Every time we visit these events that pull in a mixture of talent and fans from around Detroit to attend and perform, we're incredibly humbled by the amount of love and the general feeling of family we get.  Especially when its for a good cause.  This event was no exception.

Even though we were hammered with 2-3 inches of snow in the D and the event suffered a few no-show performers,  Detroit still paid a very honorable tribute to it's legendary fallen hip-hop hero, J.Dilla.

More footage from some speakers and presentations at the event as well as performances by Danny Brown and the Nick Speed orchestra are yet to come.

Check out Matt's photos from the event in the Event Flix section as well!

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?

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.

Big shouts to the homies M.E.D., DetroitRap.com and MichiganHipHop.com who were also in the building.
