DMV Videos!

We don’t post a lot about artists outside of the Under Sound camp and our extended fam but these videos and songs are very important to the whole Hip Hop movement in Maryland. So anyway, here are a couple of videos from artists from D.C. and Bmore respectively.

The first is “Chillin'” by Wale featuring Lady Ga Ga.  There isn’t much by way of concept but I really like it.  The colors and the vibe matches what I think Wale is going for with his image.  Hip and stylish look.

Photos from the Action Figures/Brand Nubian Show

Here are some images from the Action Figures release party featuring Brand Nubian, Biz Markie, Ogun, DJ Two Teks and myself.  In my opinion Action Figures gave the best performance any of them has given separately or collectively.  There was a great crowd from the front to the back of Sonar’s warehouse space and everyone from Action Figures to Ogun to Brand Nubian fed off of that.   Minus Nine and DJ Two Teks did the warm up sets before Action Figures and Brand Nubian respectively and they both whipped the place into a frenzie.  Even if I wasn’t performing last night I would have had a great time.  This was my first time seeing Brand Nubian when they had Puba with them and that was really awesome for me.  I actually forgot how many songs that they have that really had an effect on me over the years.  It was an out and out party.  Big shouts to Pedestrian, Garth and everyone who had a hand in making it a great night.
