DOWNLOAD THE WORLD’S GREATEST F’N THING RIGHT NOW

It was only a few days ago that the rookie class was introduced to the Vivid/DKALife/hip-hop sector and it’s been nothing but G.O.O.D. music ever since. Kanye, XV, and Detroit’s very own Big Sean lock up the majority of the slots on this one. My two favorite cities in the world know how to rip airwaves to shreds. Chicago, Detroit, and hell, why not…Kansas City has earned it’s place on the map with XV’s “Vizzy Zone” mixtape coming out late last week. You’re about to get dialed in on this one!

The Storia of Hip-Hop Euphoria

Sorry for the long wait, but for anyone that’s been up in East Lansing for a week straight with zero education obligations… you should understand.

Let me start off by saying I’m a HUGE hip-hop fan and always have been, so when I heard Kid Cudi and Drake were going to be rolling through my home-away-from-home in the same week, I knew I was going to have to set up camp and get my kicks in.  Here’s the rundown of a week in Hip-Hop Euphoria:

Wale Does Detroit

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 15, 2009 by bendey14

IMG_4572Me and the fellas made a trip out to Detroit last night to get in on the Attention Deficit Tour with Wale and Colin Munroe.  Not only did we have plans to get a full course meal of DC’s own, we figured we’d wash it down with the Finally Famous after party over at Majestic with Big Sean and Drake.  Seeing how Drake’s riding off the success of my recent artwork (or maybe it’s me riding off his success?  yea, sounds ’bout right haha) I figured we’d have a pretty good chance at getting in if I ran into the right people.

Wale, Colin, Drake, Big Sean, One Be Lo, and rumors of Common, Asher, and Cudi being in town?!  Wings pull out the victory earlier in the night too?!  One epic night is beginning to unfold before us my friends… or is it?

We get to the Shelter (8 mile), which I’ve never been to before, and I immediately am reminded of Rick’s American Cafe here in East Lansing.  It’s small, it’s dark, and you feel like you might contract AIDS off the floor if you’re not wearing proper footwear.  Lucky your boy had on his DVS’s.  First up was Octane.  Never heard of him, but he damn near killed it.

Next up was One Be Lo whom I have heard of.  He did alright, but not as good as I expected.  I’ve heard quite a few of his tracks, but haven’t seen him live, maybe I was expecting something different, but whatev, it was good to see Detroit’s still goin’ hard.

Despite being told Big Sean was up next, it was Colin Munroe.  A little disappointed?  Yeah.  Pissed off?  Nah.  Munroe brought it even though his mic was effed.  After a short set, it was Wale’s turn.  He comes up on stage in the middle of a Twitter post on his Blackberry and I couldn’t help myself but to laugh…cuz shit…I’ll admit it…I follow him.  I know the fellas over at Code 2 do as well, and don’t act like that shit ain’t hilarious (where you at Royal).

Wale did pretty sick.  Nothing spectacular, but the venue made it worth it.  The intimacy the Shelter provides is perfect.  It wasn’t a 50 dollar show at the United Center…it was what hip hop was meant to be.  A bunch of die hard fans and a passionate artist gettin’ crazy in a mildew infested basement in the heart of downtown Detroit.  If that ain’t hip hop…someone tell me what is.

Although my camera completely sucked it’s battery pack dry 5 min. into the set, my boy DKA was able to pull through and document a bit of history.  Here’s some of the gold…

Oh yea, peep this before I forget http://www.zshare.net/audio/553586987d875073/ (the perks to following Wale on Twitter)

The show finally got over at about 12:30 am and it looked like the after party at Majestic was going to be a bit over our heads.  Octane did throw out the invite to us outside…but some teamsters over here had to work in the morning and I only had $15 cash on me…maybe next time.  If anyone went, shoot me any photos you got!  (Zeph, i’m lookin’ at you son.)

Peace
