Certain events have “The Bay” written all over them. Such is the case with this mega-showcase co-produced by Quannum, Def Jux, Tastemaker and Crown City Rockers on Tuesday July 1st at San Francisco's DNA Lounge. Too rare to miss, too powerful to contain, the entire evening is full of live performances by the movers & shakers from the Bay's burgeoning hip hop community.
In their San Francisco debut, the Mighty Underdogs boast three all star members; Headnodic (Crown City Rockers), Lateef the Truth Speaker (Latryx) and Gift of Gab (Blackalicious) collaboration is so fluid, it just might hurt other people's feelings when their album “Dropping Science Fiction” is released on Def Jux later this year. Raashan Ahmad, the versatile emcee who fronts (live hip hop band) Crown City Rockers with panache, uses the night to celebrate his first, full length solo release. “The Push” (Om Records) has already enjoyed much success, and with rave reviews and features on I-Tunes, Raashan should be well on his way to critical acclaim.
As if the night wasn't full enough, add in live performances by Joyo Velarde (the Quannum soultress), Kat O1O (Crown City Rocker's resident prodigy), special guest appearance by Chief X-Cel, DJ E Da Boss on the decks and guest host Lyrics Born. No mistake about, this is the crem de la crem of Bay Area's indie hip hop stars.
