Really Really Good
What’s the word? Hope your ready for the holidays and everything is everything in your neck of the hoods. Speaking of hoods, big up to Schenectady on the check in! I see you out there! Save me an after holiday plate, yaoming!?!
The holiday rush has taken over big time out here in Hollywood. Last week saw an incredible 4 day event sponsored by Hennessey, with hip-hop legend Supernatural hosting, along with a Kanye West after party. Make sure you check out the full report, pictures and videos over at LiveStreamsLA.com. Much thanks to Chang and the Guerilla Union crew, Supernat and everyone that fell through and showed some love!
This weekend was filled with hip-hop events as well, as Chinky Eyed Fridays had Funk Doobiest, Sabac Red of Non-Phixion, and Mr. Hyde at the Knitting Factory in Hollywood. Guru was in town as well, but I missed that one. The next night, The Normandie Casino welcomed the legendary Blastmaster KRS-One to LA! Be on the lookout for video footage from all the events at LiveStreamsLA.com!
So yeah, Festivus is in full swing and I’m catching everything moving and more for you! Be on the look out for more exclusive reviews and previews as I have True Crime: New York City and a few music CDs to holla at you about real quick.
