Hip Hop in it's Purest Form…

Live Performance

K.O. Kid, King Mez & more at the Cats Cradle this Saturday

Apparently Chapel Hill is the spot to be at on Saturday night. The Cats Cradle is doing a good thing by giving a few of the top local acts the time to shine as headliners at their own show. I was put on to K.O Kid cuz he has ties to the Greenville scene, and I have done a few flyers for shows he has done. King Mez is a beast, that is certified. I recently found a live recording of an event I did with Blount Harvey, and we invited Mez onstage for a freestyle session. Looking back now, Mez must’ve been 15 or 16 years old at that show, and he killed it! Apple Juice Kid is a legend in NC Hip Hop. If you are unfamiliar with his movement, it’s time to change that. I had the honor of doing an event with FreeBass 808 in Wilmington a few years back. They are crazy live.

So I guess every Hip Hop head from the 919 will be in Chapel Hill on Saturday. See yall there…


SkyBlew Show with K. Hill & more

Chapel Hill is going to be bonkers this Saturday as SkyBlew, K. Hill, Cesar Comanche, Azon Blaze, Lazurus & more invade Jack Sprat’s on Franklin St. for this dope event. Make sure you make it out if you are in the 919 to see some of NC’s livest hip hop acts. Show starts at 10:30p, and it’s only $5 for 21 & up…


K. Hill Performs “Kick In The Door”

If you were at the Cats Cradle the night this video was taken, you know exactly how lucky you were. 9th Wonder brought both Dj Premier & Pete Rock to NC for this monumental night. They both sat onstage as various performers cycled back and forth between classics from the two producers. If that wasn’t enough, the performers were also backed by the Apple Juice Kid and his band, the Remix Project. K. Hill literally kicked in the door of the evening with this Biggie classic. Another highlight about this video, is that this was my first of anything, video or music, to get posted on some of the major blogs. & the footage came from my Flip camera! Haha. Enjoy this classic moment in NC Hip Hop. I definitely did…


N’DangR Species at the Tipsy Teapot in Greenville this Thursday

If you are in the 252 this Thursday night, make sure you hit up the Tipsy Teapot on Evans St. for a dope hip hop show. If you listened to my projects, The Investment or the Self Portrait, then you are familiar with Luse Kanz, who when teamed with Maf Maddix = N’DangR Species. They are an up & coming group out of Greensboro, who are quickly becoming a fan favorite. As always, Support NC Hip Hop…


S. Gold – “Gone with the Wind” feat. Lazurus

In preparation for the release of his mixtape, The Forecast, S.Gold has leaked this dope joint featuring partner-in-crime, Lazurus. These Lazrso artists have been killing the Triangle for sometime and the Forecast will be no different. If you are in the 919 this Friday, make sure you are at the Southland Ballroom to watch history be made. Check out this joint here


MindsOne – Live at the A3C Fest

MindsOne killed the A3C this year, and were even named one of the Top 10 live shows of the festival. I took this footage with my Flip Cam, so sorry if it’s kinda shaky and not in HD.

It was a dope party all weekend long, so if you missed the A3C over the last few years, make sure you go in 2011. It’s well worth the trip…
