Hip Hop in it's Purest Form…

I am opening up for Big K.R.I.T. & Freddie Gibbs at the Soapbox in Wilmington, NC TONIGHT!

If you have hung out with me for more than an extended period  of time in the last year, ans we began discussing the “new” school of up & coming hip hop artists, two names easily came to mind. Big K.R.I.T., the Def Jam signee from Mississippi whose mixtape, KRIT Wuz Here, was the best project I heard released last year, and Freddie Gibbs, the gangsta ass muhfucka from Gary, Indiana, who recently signed to Young Jeezy’s CTE. Both of these artist possess the grit and lyricism that I crave when looking for new artists. So when I heard they were touring together, I made it a point to make sure I could be in attendance. It wasn’t until recently that I was blessed with the opportunity to actually open up for them. So thank you to Louis T & County Lines Clothing, and the Soapbox for making it happen. Pick up tickets here. Promote it on facebook here. THANKS.

I am Performing Tonight in Wilmington…

If you are in the Wilmington area, you need to come out to 16 Taps tonight for this international hip hop affair. The homie, Mandisi from Colour Culture hit me up awhile back about coming down to Port City to rock with them at their upcoming show. Being a major fan of ILM, I obviously jumped at the opportunity. Tonight is set to be crazy with Colour Culture, a crew of artists who come from various countries around the world, FineArts, who have ties to Philly, VA, and other spots, Roanoke VA’s Poe Mack, & yours truly(only god knows what area I am repping these daze, hahaha). The event is being hosted by AYPMedia’s The Original Mr. Neva Dedd, & you know how he brings out a good crowd. I am bringing the homie, H2OKZ down to rock with me, so on the whole, this is a show that you won’t want to miss. Shouts again to all my #910 people who are coming out tonight. Can’t wait to see everyone. 16 Taps, 11pm. Be there…

Battle for Beats 2K11 This Sunday! (Wilmington, NC)

It’s finally here & I know some of y’all have been patiently counting down the days. Battle For Beats 2K11 is finally upon us and the Port City will never be the same. Make sure you head down to the 910 to be apart of history, as up to 16 of NC’s best producer’s battle it out for a set of Beats by Dre headphones.

A couple months back, Reese Beats made a huge spectacle at a Producer’s Showcase I was hosting. hat was the prelude to what might be one of NC’s most epic Beat Battles. Check out the video below of Reese & WonderBoy exchanging barbs through viral video:

All craziness aside, make sure you hit up the event that everyone in NC is talking about. An event so big, that it required 2 flyers from yours truly. Haha…


MindsOne – “Break” (Prod. by Kev Brown)

Shoutout to my Port City brethren, MindsOne, for the release of their second joint off of their album, Self Reliance. As expected, this joint is a banger. Here is the info:
MindsOne has released their follow up single from the critically acclaimed album “Self Reliance” on Soulspazm Records.  ‘Break’, produced by Low Budget’s own Kev Brown, serves as an ode to rhythm.  While MindsOne crew Emcees Tronic and KON Sci detail crowd motivation and movement, DJ Noumenon sets up a platform for the technical DJ work which is strategically placed throughout the course of the song.  Fellow scratch masters Rob Swift (the X-Ecutioners), DJ Excess (Ned Hoddings), J Smoke and DJ Spictakular (the Allies) display an array of precise cutlery which justify their places as highly respected DJs in the international scratch community.
The single can be downloaded for FREE here

WonderBoy Responds to Reese Beats

 

After cutting up the Reese Beats video, we ended up in Greensboro for another show. Herb Skee & I showed the video to Kotix who almost immediately called up Wonder Boy & set up a follow up interview. Since I guess I am the figurehead in creating this “internet beef,” or at least reporting on it, I didn’t want it to appear that I was “picking sides” whatsoever. I am not about the drama, unless it’s my own. Hahaha. Check out the videos and make sure you are in Wilmington on Jan 16. It’s gonna be super craaaazy!
