Now why cant Los Angeles have a lineup like this from the RBMA? This is definitely a 3-day event no one should miss! You have the Gary Bartz Project w/Aloe Blacc & Bilal over at Yoshi’s Jazz Club, then it’s Stretch Armstrong w/Bobbito Garcia taking you back to the Squeeze Radio days at the Mighty SF, then ending it off with some house music from legends Kenny Dope & Little Louie Vega (who will be uniting for the first time) at 103 Harriet!
For those of you who know about Bilal’s track, Little One,.. for some of you, it may be your first time (like myself) learning about his son having autism. This tour that’s currently taking place is to raise awareness and support for autistic research. Click the picture to view the dates fully and to check to see if he will be in your area, and please support the cause!
It’s bad enough when you hear about music being leaked to the masses without proper authorization, but then again who doesnt take up the opportunity to download them? But a video..? C’mon, man… now that’s just wrong. Here are the visuals that Matthew put together for Bilal’s grammy nominated single off of Airtight’s Revenge. The video is a tribute to his son.
