Here’s a rare gem that features the former Digable Planets queen & legend Gil Scott-Heron‘s former musical collaborator. I received this joint back in 2008, and the crazy part about that is… is that I never saw this on any popular music blog sites. I was kind of in shock that it wasnt. But anyways, three years later, I still havent seen it anywhere online, except for when WEFUNK radio played it on their station! Anyways, here’s the stream! Let me know what you guys think!
(counting down backwards…. TWOOOOO)!
Come out to Chinatown tonight for a west coast tribute with the Arabian Prince (NWA) after you guys check out the ATCQ documentary. Flyer below.
Friday, May 20th, MIGHTY is proud to present 45 LIVE w/ Peanut Butter Wolf, J Rocc, Mayer Hawthorne & Baron Zen. Local support comes from none other than DJ Shortkut (Beat Junkies | Triple Threat) & DJ Platurn (45 Sessions | Oakland Faders). Advance tickets are available through Eventbrite.com. Doors at 9PM, 21 and up.
In the age of digital DJing it is seldom that you get to hear an all vinyl set an entire night, let alone 45’s. Vinyl will supply us with a warmer, richer sound, while MIGHTY’s Richard Long and Associates analog system will set the organic feel for a classic night of music.
$10 Entry; Address is 119 Utah St (San Francisco).
I know some of you guys are waiting for the Lakers game to come on, but in less than a couple of hours, Open Mike Eagle (a dope act to check out) will be hitting the mic over at Little Temple tonight for the Nu-Thursdays event! Features will include Sunny Jackson, Choize, and Redd Foxx. Opening up the night will be DJs Destroyer, Mona Lisa, and Sean O. Check them out tonight, especially if youre just trying to chill. It’s going to be a good night, considering how hot it got today, you may want to cool off..
Speaking of what the Nu-Soul crew is doing, Norman Mayers and friends are having another dope jam going down this saturday over at the Alexandria Hotel (The Mezzanine) in Downtown LA. Special guests include The Rebirth (one of my favorite groups) and Oliver Twist. There will be a live art exhibit (ladies, there will be NAIL art), and video projections of various art pieces and more as well. Its FREE with rsvp, and $5 cover. If youre in the area, be sure to stop by. Flyer down below.
Tonight its going down in Long Beach! Mind you, we dont have that many events from this crew left, so take up the opportunity to get your soul, funk, and rare grooves on! The homie DJ Abel wont be in the place tonight, but it’s gonna be dope nonetheless!
Tonight, the Oakland songstress will be linking up with Talib Kweli’s main squeeze to bring you a very special gift to all the couples [and singles] who will be in the house tonight. In addition, she will be performing a few songs from her new album. So make sure you get out here to be serenaded.
Last year’s Grammy Party that the KissNGrind crew threw was off the hook! It was a special event to definitely be a part of. I remember near the end of last year I was looking all over for the review that I thought I made about the party, but come to find out that I never made one at all (smacks forehead). Although I forgot to make a post about it, I definitely got the pictures (& the press pass) to prove it! After the night was over, I couldnt get past the fact that I was definitely a part of something amazing (that’s definitely NOT Hollywood-ish)! I especially thank those that were involved to make it happen. I appreciate it a hell of a lot.
