Then I bounced back to LA and caught the Dead Prez show @ the Key Club (Friday 27th). Them Bruvvas was ill.. they brought out they Fam, Essential MC, who dropped some Spoken Science.. peep!

Then of course Dead Prez hittem in the head with “Hip-Hop!” M1’s opening line is stuck in my head: “MothaF****n Fake, fake records, records!” (bwahahaha).. *Caution: Bass Heavy!*

Then Sunday (March 1) I went to a club LAX, where fools were breakdancing to Daft Punk.. It was impeding on my club grindery, so I wasn’t feelin it… until I peeped the footage.. then it was just aight.. I still hate when dancers effin take up the floor and inhibit the grindery.. wamp wamp!

Then Tuesday I was out and about and saw Snoop Dogg’s, Uncle Junebug outside of a Snoop performance, where I asked him about the economy, wall street, and Chrihanna. his replies were so high-larious, I had to bouce out on him just to watch the tape and LMMFBAO!

Then I went to Dim Mak Tuesdays (March 3rd) @ Cinespace, where there was a masked DJ, who I believed was Will.I.Am (yea I heard he’s like a phantom DJ too!) I asked Apl.De.Ap, also of Black Eyed Peas, about this, to which he couldn’t confirm nor deny (which to me is enough to say yes ;-p).. but I also ask him about Taboo being cast as VEGA in the new Street Fighter movie “The Legend of Chun-Li”

The Art That Goes Boom

Posted in Fiesta, Music with tags , , , , , , on February 27, 2009 by kinganyi

Last Night I was in SF for a Scion event: Beatbox.

An art exhibit and concert, the event is focused on artistically crafted homemade stereo systems. These fully functioning boom-box sculptures will come to life with sight, sound and motion by utilizing the latest automotive audio/visual equipment: speakers, head units, flat screens, and LED lights. Some of the installations will resemble various art sculptures and the exhibit will also feature throwback boom boxes made from original materials ust like the old days, with speakers built in and a car head unit.


Toon One came with THE BOP GUN, the gun-modeled boombox inspired by George Clinton and Ice Cube’s “Bop Gun (One Nation)

Skyy Vodka was giving out the bar, promoting their pineapple and citrus vodkas. I took full advantage, yet somehow my head isn’t pounding like one of the displays.
