The Smack Down Bboy Competition in Allston, Ma

First off I gotta big up T.R.U. member Reez for bringing me to the event and making sure I got the best footage I can.  I’ve never been to an event like this before and have never seen so much love between people in hip hop that were competing against each other.  Being at this event I realized the difference between rap and Bboying and how commercialized the emceeing part of hip hop is and how it has been exploited by the companies that control its distribution.  Witnessing this event (both the cyphers and battles) showed me first hand that even though dancing has had its share in the limelight , for the most part it is just as pure as when it began.  Big Shot Out to the Floor Lords for sponsoring the event as well as the other brothers involved in putting the jam together, I look forward to being at many more.

Agent Orange – Cage

Cage released the underground classic Agent Orange produced by Necro back in 97.  Off the strength of that 12′ Cage eventually dropped Movies for the Blind(2002) on Eastern Conference, Hell’s Winter(2005) and earlier this month (7/7/09) Depart From Me on Definitive Jux.  Cage has undergone quite the evolution as an artist over the past decade as his newest effort Depart From Me sounds nothing like that of the old Cage.Download/Stream–>http://www.zshare.net/audio/632603652392aa6d/

Consequently Cage will be performing on the final leg of his Depart From Me tour this Friday on Brighton Ave in Allston at Harper’s Ferry with helpout from Yak Ballz and HHTT extended family members the Nite People.  If you are in the area this Friday make sure to check them out.
