What’s good everyone? I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving, and had a great week! On Thursday night in D.C., The Turnt & Burnt Tour came through! The setlist included: 100s, OverDoz, A$ton Matthews, Joey Fatts, and the Trap Lord himself A$AP Ferg. A$AP Ant and A$AP Nast were there as well. The show started right at 9, and Bay Area artist 100s performed a chill, laid back first set. OverDoz was on next, and they got the crowd going, with their positive Southern California vibes. The four individuals who make up OverDoz brought a positive light to the show. Next up, was Long Beach’s own A$ton Matthews, and Joey Fatts aka (The Cutthroat Boyz.) These guys are no joke, they spit those real street raps based off real life experiences. They both look they have a good sense of humor, but also seem very dedicated to the money, and to representing who they are. About an hour after the first three acts – the venue went dark and A$AP Ferg hit the stage. Ferg’s energy is always crazy, and gets the crowd going wild as hell. Ferg didn’t waste any time; He dove into crowd, probably within in the first three minutes. Of course, you know it’s not an A$AP show without other members of the A$AP Mob. A$AP Nast hit the stage and performed his record “Trillmatic”.” Later in the set A$AP Ant, from Baltimore, hit the stage and spit his raw and gritty rhymes about street life and women. I enjoyed A$AP Ant and Nast because they bring something raw to the table. Well, the whole A$AP Mob brings a certain rawness or creative vibe that’s their very own. A$AP Ferg really vibes with the crowd, and he seemed really happy to be in town. I suggest you do your research on the A$AP Mob, and the acts who were at the show because they are going keep growing and growing. The show was what I expected – laid back, turnt up, fun, raw, and loud. Check out some of the photos and videos from Turnt & Burnt live at the Howard Theatre below!
What’s goin on everyone? I hope are having a good holiday season. With the New Year fast approaching, I find myself thinking a lot about time. As I grow older, I become more aware of how powerful and precious time is; and I feel each year goes by faster than the one before. If you really think about it, 365 days is a short time. Look back on the log of 365 days you’ve survived. How did you spend them? What did you think about, who were you with, how have you grown, where did you succeed, or fail at anything, if anything? Take long pause today and – “Reminisce”- That is The Song of the Week, this time by Queens native – Bryant Dope – with that raw vibe on the production by DELA. Read More →

“December is a month full of inspiration to #RaiseYourWeapons. On December 1, 1955 Rosa Parks was arrested and on December 6, 1865 the 13th amendment was ratified. Yesterday we saw a Civil Rights Icon, Nelson Mandela, pass. In his honor, we release the music video today for Stalley’s “Raise Your Weapons” off the Honest Cowboy mixtape. The music video is directed by Abraham Vilchez-Moran & Jai Jamison. The song is produced by the Block Beattaz. Check out more at www.stalley330.com.” Read More →
