So just got the mix done right. At least as right as it’s going to be. It’s all RJD2 beats and this one is featuring Pean The Hustla from Philly. I’m releasing the full mix for free download in a few weeks. It should be interesting as always.
Philadelphia is so dirty that it’s a work of art. It’s grunge background heaven. I would much rather have a cleaner Philly but you take the good with the bad. Big props to PKG of course. You can check them out at PKG215.com. You can check out 9th Element (the dude beside me) at 9thelement.com and you can check out photographer Jalil Simpson at wegonemakeit.blogspot.com. All good peoples.
With me, Pean, Jonifin Marvin and more. Props to PKG and everybody else who put it together. Good times.
We are doing this next art show in Philly at PKG headquarters. Lot’s of good friends and strangers involved with this including Travis Fields, Moira Katz, Abacus Love, Alex Halpin, Jalil Simpson, Woodrow Chavarria Jr, Earl Johnson, Mark A. Hernandez Jr, Keira Stevenson, Andre Booker, Mack Dewitt and Daren Toliver. Should be sick. I’m even doing some art for it which is cool for me. Haven’t done any art for a show in a while. Also got a set at Kung Fu Necktie in Philly tomorrow. If you are in the area come through.
This was the clean up party I put together in North Philly with PKG. It’s pretty sucio in Philly. Everybody who participated in the clean up got free cheesesteaks, tastykakes, shirts, beer, liks, hugs etc. This clean up party was sponsored by PKG and Max’s Steaks in Philly. Probably do it again in a month or so.
Unfortunately I was so busy installing the art that I didn’t get a chance to put any of my art up. Plus I’ve been so focused on music that my inner painter/screen printer/mixed media guy has been neglected. I have to bring him back. But big hearts go out to Carolina Mejides for helping me install the art. And a big manly hand shake to David Adams who put the rest of this showing together. Couldn’t even come close to doing this with out them.
But the artists on display are Miguel Manzur, David Adams, Makenzie Flynn, Mark Hernandez, Gloria Martin, Jon Laing, Katie Haire, Tessy Mitchum, Miguel Co, Sarah Petruska, Kathleen White, Erin Caballero, and Woodrow Chavarria Jr. Their art will be for sale at PKG in Philadelphia until the next show which is October 5th, 2012. Come through if you’re in the area.
Props to The Deli for supporting my homie Yikes and quoting things I say on this blog. Their write up was about the show I did with Yikes and Tommy Tucker last Friday at Kung Fu Necktie in Philly. The show was a success for Philly hip hop heads and a few converters who just like to act silly with us. It’s okay if you don’t know who Gang Starr is. We are only slightly judgmental.
