Support and purchase the Philly Crew’s project debuting online tomorrow which also features Invincible, Bahamadia, Hezekiah, and more.
SXSW 2011 was dopesauce. Honestly, I had the best time over three days with family and band in tow. Shouts to Audible Treats for having me on the bill. To perform with one contemporaries is an honor indeed, especially when they include Mo Green, Heiro, Zion I, The Grouch, Talib, Jean Grae, Mela Machinko, Pharoahe Monch and Black Milk. Always good running into my DC folks AP, Pro-verb, RatheMC, Lyriciss, Daphuture, Drethemayor Phil Ade, Scriila, Gods’illa, Candice Nicole, Graviti & Sonny Norway, as well as Stalley, Nick, Dan, Hustle Simmons, D Dot Omen,& Blu. My dudes Kayne Mayfield and KBeta held the Studio 101 street cipher antics down. Bars upon bars upon, drinks, within bars. The DMVincible showcase was awesome, Shouts and respect to Harmony for putting it all together and for everybody showing up and rocking. Glad I caught the Odd Future jont, Mad I missed fwmj’s jont, Das Racist, Quadron, Toro Y Moi..bahhh. Connects were invaluable and my liver was good thanks to the many artist lounges and free libation parties. Got the good bbq at Stubbs, during the Raphael Saddiq, Duran Duran show, this cat from B-more J. Roddy Walston is official. Yeesh. Setting my sights and energies to rocking the Fader Fort next season.
