Chapel Hill is the spot to be at tonight….
Whoa. After the last two days of UNC basketball, I think it’s about time everybody exhales(after inhaling, of course), and enjoys life for a little bit. & where else better to do that then in the heart of Tar Heel country, itself. Chapel Hill is the move tonight if you are looking for a good hip hop event. Some of the state’s finest emcees will be in the building to put on a show that will leave you gasping for air. King Mez, fresh off of his first MTV appearance and the release of The King’s Khrysis, will be holding it down. 9th Wonder, and Kooley High prized pupil, Rapsody will be doing her usual murderous microphone routine, Lazurus, Poe Mack, IllPo, and others will also be out repping for NC. Lastly, I will be there doing my usual 2 step on stage. So if you want to get out and celebrate tonight, do it in a smart manner….WITH US! Come tru. Jack Sprat. Show starts at 10p…

I am Performing Tonight in Roanoke VA…
Tonight is shaping up to be a crazy night. Besides such VA/NC artists, Poe Mack, Bo Jankans, Lazurus, and more, you have Rapper Big Pooh of the legendary, Little Brother, that will be rocking the stage. You can’t put a value on the motivation that LB has provided any true school fan, especially artists from NC. At Awful Arthur’s this evening, Pooh will be joined by HOJ teammate, Chaundon. The show starts at 10pm, sharp, and if you are under 21, you need to be there by then, to assure that you can get in. DJ Van Gundy is on the wheels, so you can expect a lot of wit on his end. Hahaha. But if you are in a 100 mile radius of the 540 tonight, you have no excuse as to where else you should be. Come rock with us, and have a great time, listening to great music…

For The Love of Music Show/Gone With The Wind (Video)
Super Shoutouts to S.Gold for throwing this NC star studded event tonight. For the Love of Music Show has been in the works for quite some time now. The plan is to shower all the ladies in the building with roses and enough hip hop flavor to kill a horse(haha, not really, but kinda). You know anytime a cast like S.Gold, Lazurus, 1100 Huntaz, Skyblew, the homie Don DiGiorgio(formerly Kotix), and others get together, it’s gonna be a crazy throw down. Well tonight is no different.
If you are in the 919, the spot to be at tonight is Southland Ballroom on West St. If you get there before 11p, you even save a couple dollars on the door charge. So get out there early, and have a blast. But before you do that, check S.Gold’s new video for “Gone With The Wind” featuring Lazurus, shot by Kent Willard of Depth of Sound…

Hip Hop Events in the 919 Tonight…
If you are in the Raleigh-Durham area this evening, and you feel like you have nothing to do, well then you are utterly wrong. Not only is there one dope local event going on, but there is 2 dope hip hop events going on! Haha, here is the rundown…
First up is the Triangle’s bad guy, L.E.G.A.C.Y., performing alongside Sun Up, Son Down, Sleep Control, Garland Mason Band, and more. This show will actually be more of a mixed genre show with blends of hip hop and rock. Make sure you check out Sun Up, Son Down tho. It is the brainchild of former Plan B artist, Rivera with help from B-Wise formerly of Odd Numbers. They pack a lotta punch in their set.
If it’s not Raleigh tonight, then it’s gotta be Chapel Hill, as some of the hottest acts the Triangle have to offer square off in this hip hop extravanganza. See Tuscon, Lazurus, Drique London, Ease, SkyBlew, Azon Blaze and others tonight at the Library(in case, you couldn’t find it on the flyer/ahem cough cough, holla at me for your graphic design. haha).
Both shows are going to eb a great time with even better music, so make sure you hit one of them up tonight…
