Big up to everytime

The Random Axe show in Brooklyn’s venerable performance space SouthPaw was a classic vibe. Shouts to Meka from 2DopeBoyz for opening up the space with a dope set.

DJ Evil Dee brought that veteran deejay skill to the stage next. I stayed yelling out to the interconnected networks that they all should have worn their backpacks.

Skyzoo lit up the stage with what will be the future of the underground genre.

Black Moon’s set was another reminder of why Duck Down Records remains a staple in Hip-Hop’s history. Black Moon’s songs are the definition of backpack rap.

Smif-N-Wessun x Heltah Skeltah x Boot Camp Clik is the army.

Random Axe is backpack rap when you are strapped with a gat.

Luckily no one was shot at the show and fun time was had by all.

How much of a sneaker fiend are you? Do you own baseball cleats even tho’ you stopped playing organized softball several years ago?

Okay, then you might be as official as I am.

Sexual assaults in America are on the rise for a bevy of reasons. One of them has to be the advertising of sex in all sorts of consumer products. No one is more notorious right now then the marketers of American Apparel.

After the Random Axe show several members of the Combat Jack Show walked past an American Apparel store and felt compelled to talk about the displays and their overarching themes. Yeah, I think we were drunk too.
