Nytmare Album Release Party

Once again my apologies on getting this footage up so late.  After a long wait ( 10 years to be exact ) Nytmare aka Mr. Nocturn aka Fahad the Jihadist aka The Lakeside Strangler released his long awaited full length debut entitled Insomniaddict

For those of you that don’t know Nytmare is a staple in the Worcester hip hop scene  and has been performing since the late nineties.  He has shared the stage with homegrown favorites that have since faded away, I mention that only to let you know that Nytmare has been in the scene and putting in work for Worcity hip hop for a minute.  I remember the first time hearing Ashes to Ashes over at Brother Menelik’s house circa 1999 and thinking to myself (respectively) “Who the fuck is this nigga ???“  It would be a few months before  I met him in person. He had a dark sounding voice on the edge of being gritty with a rapid spitting yet clear delivery, the style Nytmare has is like no other in the City and his work ethic along with perfectionist approach to not only his music but his performance and stage presence is unmatched.

At his album release party at the Lucky Dog Music Hall on Green St. in Worcester Ma.a copy of Insomniaddict was handed out to every person that came through the door.  The crowd was entertained with a mash up of musical genres.  Kinda Dusty’s and All Elements Crew member Spit Supreme performed as well as H2T2 Productionz group  Cocaine Robots and Tone Velez.  Also on the bill were Shane Hall & Ticklebomb Orchestra and Evince Ethos with Nytmare taking the stage last. It was definitely a good night for not only local hip hop but for local music & artists period.  Good looks Nytmare on dropping a Gem of an album, it was definitely worth the wait.

T.R.U. Crew Practice Session

We recently had the opportunity to get up with our brothers from T.R.U. Crew ( Top Rock United Crew ) and get some footage of them practicing. I’ve known these cats from way back in the day ( 96-97 ).And these dudes been on they grind the last few years , everytime I see them perform I see more and more improvements as well as witness the human body move in ways I never thought possible. Funny thing about all this , is that they do this stuff EASY , my boy Backspace had a twisted knee and was all over the place and Reez was just messing around with the headspins , Backspace told me they were his “shitty headspins” these dudes really leave me speechless. Big shot out to the rest of the members Maximus, Lace, Rek and Fuse. For more info on T.R.U. Crew visit
