INFORMING the HIP-HOP COMMUNITY
What’s Good Family!!!
If for whatever reason good, bad, or indifferent you didn’t get a chance to make it out to the TROC in Philly last Thursday (Nov. 13th) to see Wise Intelligent launch his “The HEREAFTER” concert series you missed one of the BEST shows of the year!!! If this is what life is really like in “The HEREAFTER” then I’m all in…
Please stay tuned for video clips of all the ill performances.
Everybody on the bill gave their all and left everything on the stage! This was the type of show that you can argue all night about who was the dopest because everybody was just that good. “The Soundbwoikillhaz’s” were amazing (Dj Slice is insane on the tables!) and “The 49ers” , “Jah’ Tun”, and “Soulkwest” gave very strong performances as well. The Poet Shyster was absolutely sick! He was like a mixture of Saul Williams and Freddie Foxx. He beat us into submission with every word that exploded from his soul… Then Def Poetry’s own the super sensational “Narubi Selah” hit the stage and gave what can only be described as poetry incarnate. She is without a doubt one of the strongest artists on the scene right now and is the perfect representation of life in The HEREAFTER. And if that wasn’t enough the almighty NYOIL jumped into the mix and took the show to that next level and gave one of the most passionate performances I’ve seen in a very long time. NYOIL is the definition of an MC and we were all blessed to be given the opportunity to see this brother do this thing.
At this point the a whole room was electrified and alive with new life and the new hope that Hip Hop can once again MOVE THE CROWD in a positive and progressive direction, so when the Legendary Wise Intelligent emerged the crowd was ready to burst into flames. Wise Intelligent rocked with a live band and confirmed once again that he is one of the greatest artists that Hip Hop has ever produced. He proceeded to inspire and inform, educate and entertain and gave us all a small glimpse of the true power and original intention of Hip Hop culture. Wise reminded us that the foundation of Hip Hop is rooted in activism and that we must return to that spirit of activism and community development to move us forward and beyond these very troubled times.
