Gifted Gab Performs “No Days Off” in Convenience Store for Swisher Sweets Artist Project (Video)

Three years ago I traveled to Seattle to cover the annual Bumbershoot Music festival. That trip turned out to be as much of a networking and new artist discovery as it was for festival coverage.  I was introduced to a multitude of artists and Gifted Gab is one that I told people about after seeing her perform live.  She has continued to work hard, releasing new music along with performing at shows up and down the west coast.  She even rocked out here in Atlanta for A3C 2016.  Well she has caught the eye of Swisher Sweets who have made her part of their convenience store sessions.  Yes the title explains exactly what it is Gifted Gab performing live inside a convenience store unannounced, unrehearsed, with real customers.  Gab definitely has the personality to pull this off.  So check out this cool footage where the Seattle emcee controls the crowd while they are grabbing a six pack and some swishers!

The Reign Supreme B-Boy Battle @ Bumbershoot 2015 In Seattle

Once again I was back in Seattle Labor Day Weekend to cover the Bumbershoot Festival.  If you are not familiar with Bumbershoot it is a 3 day festival focused on Music, Art, Comedy and celebrating the city of Seattle, WA.  This year the festival brought back the BBoy battle competition.  I was able to get exclusive access to the behind the scenes of this competition thanks to my friend DV One who along with DJ Lean Rock provided the sounds for this event.  This was organized by the Reign Supreme collective out in Seattle.  I have footage of dancers from Seattle to Poland to Taiwan in the video clips above and after the jump.  Enjoy and once again you can catch us in Seattle next year covering this great music festival once again!

Seattle’s “Gifted Gab” Pulls A Lyrical “187” For The Moor Gang (Video)

There is a lot of quality Hip Hop coming out of the Pacific North West these days.  With artists like Dave B, Raz Simone also part of that Seattle wave is the “Moor Gang.  The Moor Gang is a collective of emcees repping Seattle and their first lady is “Gifted Gab.”  She lets loose some fire with her video for the track “187” .  The visuals are nicely done as she & the directors creatively borrow from the 1979 cult classic film “The Warriors.”   This is more of a mini-movie than a video directed by Andrew Imanaka, Devlin Dinish and Gabrielle Kadushin .  I had the pleasure of seeing Gifted Gab perform live last year at Bumbershoot Festival & I can say this sister is on her way so stay tuned!

Sunday Night Sound Session: Legendary Seattle Radio Show Host ‘J. Moore’ Embraces His Dome (Video)

When it comes to Hip Hop there has always been an emphasis on style whether it is clothing, footwear, and also Hair Styles.  The Gumbo cut, the High Top Fade, the Low Cut Ceaser are all trademark hairstyles worn by many artists.  One that has also been around since the beginning and is always in style is the Bald look.  Helping to keep the bald look on point Dome Care Solutions (Seattle Based Company) has partnered up with J Moore of “Sunday Night Sound Session” to make a great video detailing a day in the life of the radio host.  J Moore & DJ Hyphen, hosts of the SNSS show,  are friends to the Beatz & Lyrics Show and showed love to ArtByOdell on his trip to Seattle to cover Bumbershoot for Jayforce.com.  It’s also great to see a video detailing the highlights of a person grown in Hip Hop where J Moore is playing with his son, at work on his Sunday night radio show, or running his art gallery aptly called “2312 Gallery.” Props to Dome Care & J. Moore for putting a little focus the ‘smoother’ side of style that goes beyond hip hop….
