Anyway... I've also always been a big fan on D-nice ever since the BDP (Boogie Down Productions) days and Rocked with Camp Lo hard during that Luchini era. So it was a no brainer when my boy @Fathernamebud (Shombu theMerciful) asked me if I wanted to roll with him and to top it off he got me in there with a press pass. That means I had the freedom to wander anywhere with my camera, even on stage, with no problem. I was psyched about being onstage with Camp Lo. Them dudes had things on smash for a lil' while. Crazy thing is, some of you won't even know who they are. And that's all good, cuz I'm gonna post a link to their music Here! You can check them out out on youtube.
All in all, the show was hype as hell! Yeah I went old school on you with "hype", but that's what we used to say back in the day, so stop sweating me!. lol :-)........ Now back to Business, D-Nice had that shit rocking from the beginning with a mix a flavorful and funky records, then Pete Rock came on with a mind lowing set of of his own before bringing out Camp Lo. The crowd was definitely rocking the whole times as @CampLo gave us some new material from the Mixtape , then blessed us with the Classic hits like "Luchini" and "Coolie High". Don't you love the type of shows where you know all the words? I do! Even though I still don't don't know what the hell they were talking about on a few joints, but I just mumbled those parts. :-)
It's crazy, I always leave these old school hip hop shows happy and thank full that I got to see the creation and be a part of this wonderful artform and culture. Now more than ever, I appreciate being born in the 70's and having the good fortune of being raised in the 80's and 90's. Those were some damn good years! We saw so many "firsts"in our generation it's mindblowing. I'm thankful everyday.
OK, now lemme come back down to earth.
As I mentioned earlier in the post, I brought my cam and took tons of pics and some video, so check them out below for the visuals.. I hope you appreciate this as much as I do. Till the next time Family!
I also Ran into Black Rob there of "Whoa" fame. He told me he's on a new reality show called the "Comeback Kings". so watch out for that one.
