Before touchin’ the stage at the Respect The West showcase, Jay took a moment to holla at his yellow brother in a dark corner. He addresses all the attention he’s gotten from his quarrel with Ice Cube and plugs the mixtape that just dropped a few hours ago. Timing!
Good times on Saturday night at the Cashmere Agency and Stampede Management Cali invasion at Austin’s Club de Ville. I was drunk on stage and somewhere Mel D. Cole was still flickin’ away. Nice!
A tribute to Bun B in Texas? Now that’s a good idea. Before taking their stroll down memory lane, Mr. Port Arthur and the other Jewish cat in rap named Rosenberg took the time to give me a preview to the proceedings that went down last Thursday. It ended up being a pretty good interview and I got it all on tape. Hmm.
Photos: Village Slum One of the strangest but still entertaining events down in Austin was an all-Memphis acts showcase at a club called Barbarella. It was an almost all-rock show that was headlined by a coupla hip-hop legends. Guess who? Ha. And guess what, the crowd loved it. Mel captured the madness.
From Friday night’s show at the Mohawk Patio, here’s another new one from the ATL Brave’s upcoming Fashionably Late mixtape. I can dig it.
During Nas’ performance last week in The Aloha State, RZA blessed the stage and informed the crowd that “Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthin’ Ta F Wit”. Think they got the message?
