In celebrating their debut release of Mecca & The Soul Brother, Pete Rock and CL Smooth embarked on a tour earlier this month. This Saturday night, they will be here in Los Angeles. Joining them will be Camp Lo, who are also celebrating their release (w/Pete Rock) of Breakfast at Tiffany’s Pt 2 mixtape! Guests for the night will include LA’s own ZOOLAY and Dawn Gun. Tickets are currently $20 online and they will be $30 at the door. Get them while they’re still available!
According to Steven, Large Professor and Cormega are collaborating on the album called Mega Philosophy, and so far they’ve released M.A.R.S. (which features Action Bronson, Roc Marciano, & Saigon). We (or should I say, I…) am not sure about what the details on this album are, but hopefully they’ll get into that tonight in Pasadena. Opening acts features my homies ZOOLAY and LA’s finest talented producer Dibia$e, among others. Unfortunately this IS an all ages event (meaning 18+), but then again, this is hiphop. Come out and support!
Here’s my first attempt getting back into posting. The homie Don Ron told me about this tour last month, but now it’s in full effect, starting tonight in Riverside. Check down below for the tour dates. Hopefully we’ll see Jeru perform some new joints. We definitely need him back in hiphop.
UPDATE [04/18] Sacramento: Tonight’s show will NOT be at Harlow’s. It will be at the Blue Lamp.
Here’s another ChinkyEyed exclusive, Live at The Terrace.
You have heads that are currently on the Your Favorite MC Tour (Snowgoons (Edo. G & DJ Illegal), King Magnetic, Reef The Lost Cauze) sharing the stage with some of LA’s finest. Button Pusha will be your house DJ, sharing with you some of his favorite joints through the wheels. Its going to be live and direct in Pasadena, so come out and watch the show!
Do I even need to explain whats going down this week? Even the homie DJ B Original put together a mix promoting the event (check it out [here]).
I ran into the homie Scatterbrain at the Dilla tribute two weeks back. He was passing out flyers for this event right here. He’s hosting this event at the Little Temple Bar in two days. Features Rakaa Iriscience (Dilated Peoples), Chino XL, ZOOLAY, and Blame One. It’s $12 for the entry. Here’s the full flyer.. err, I mean [scroll].

Truth be told, ZOOLAY have been making their mark at damn near every hiphop show known in Los Angeles. They, are not stopping, either. Since their last release Blood, Sweat, & Beers, Don Ron & ILLZ have been featured along side most of LA’s finest, The Beatnuts, Keith Murray, and toured up north for their first feature as well. Here’s a joint off their new album which features Planet Asia, that’s produced by Exile. Album is coming soon, but in the meantime, catch ZOOLAY this friday at the Terrace in Pasadena w/ The Artifacts, among many future shows!
