I love Miss Jack Davey’s voice. Shout to the homey Al with the cameo too.
The homies Krispy and Al have been hinting about this little release for quite some time and they finally dropped it via Twitter the other day. As I was waiting for some artwork to show up, Shake @ 2DopeBoyz cooked up the cover above, so it’s time to rock. There are only 5 joints, but they’re all dope. The title track is probably the highlight, but don’t sleep on “Fruits” and “Floozy” either. More dope ish from the Knux!
I’m not quite sure how I had a 3-day weekend and yet I’m still scrambling to catch up coming into the work week…hmm. Oh wait, sure I do. BUMBERSHOOT.
Long story short, Seattle hosted our annual Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival this weekend and despite the rain sneaking in here and there, it was a smashing success. Along with countless dope indie rock cats, we saw some great performances from folks like De La Soul, The Knux, Mayer Hawthorne, Janelle Monae, many of our favorite local artists, and more. Even the Black Eyed Peas rocked it, no lie.
I had the special pleasure of DJ’ing for the homies U-N-I during their set and we’ll be posting up some footage of that soon on the blog. Shout to Y-O and Thurz for putting on a great performance and also getting some hoops in on their trip. The last game may or may not have ended with your truly draining a 3 pointer in Thurz’ eye. I’m not sure. My memory is a bit fuzzy. Ask about me.
Peep this week’s show for all sorts of great music, plus a snippet of our interview with Kid Cudi. The full interview will be posted up soon, but if you’re dying for Cudi Content, chew on this. We also had A. Uno of Steelo come through to give away tickets for the Sneaker Pimps show on Thursday (performances by the Clipse, Slick Rick, Steelo, They Live, GMK, Fresh Espresso, future ABDC champs the Massive Monkees, and more!) plus Nightclubber Lang (aka Karim of Myx Music) dropped in as well for some updates on the burgeoning hip-hop empire that is Myx. What a weekend…

Generally speaking, projects with this level of corporate organization/sponsorship turn out extra corny, but thanks to the talent assembled for the latest Pepsi Mic Pass video, this one came out dope. All the live stuff was shot down in Austin at SXSW and you can see all sorts of folks in the background. Town homies will recognize Dow Jones and Jake One especially…
