This past Saturday, I was fortunate enough to get an invite to go see the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival. It was a long but very memorable day full of music. I began the day working in the studio on my mixtape RapZhody. Annnnnd I am happy to say the mixtape is complete!
After finishing up the mixtape, I jetted from the studio in LI to BK to catch the final performances at the concert. I was lucky enough to see Q-Tip perform (he was the headlining act). And Tip brought out a slew of surprise guests such as Monie Love, Black Thought, Busta Rhymes annnd Kanye West! That was my 1st time seeing Kanye perform live too which was freakin awesome! In the words of Ice Cube, "Today was a good day".
I got a chance to go see the new documentary Beats, Rhymes, & Life on the legendary hip hop group A Tribe Called Quest. Directed by Michael Rapaport. I saw it at the AMC Cinema on 42nd St in Times Square. I must say despite the controversy surrounding the film and whatever animosity that was built up behind the scenes regarding it, I thought the documentary was freakin awesome! It gave me a much clearer in-depth look at the history behind A Tribe Called Quest. I believe it gave each member a chance to shine. It was entertaining, funny, full of hip hop history, and even at times a tear jerker. Well done. And it gave me more insight about not only my hip hop culture but my boro Queens. A definite MUST SEE!
-Oh and I'm still lookin for the perfect Bonita Applebum ;)
Spent a couple long days in the studio with the homey RP, putting the finishing touches on my 1st mixtape RapZhody I have been working on this mixtape for a good 5 months or so....And I am proud to say that the mixtape is coming out incredible!
RapZhody consists of 12 tracks of me rapping over classic hip-hop beats (mainly from the 90's) but to add a little twist...I'm playing the drums on the tracks too!! I don't think that's EVER been done before, therefore you can say I'm making History with this first project!
That along with some other little surprises I'm definitely bringing something new to the table and I can't wait till yall get a chance to finally hear it. This is only the beginning. S/o to Reggie for coming in and doing his thing! The boy really came thru for me. Be on the look out for new videos off RapZhody! And a final release date...Stay Tuned.
