Seattle Hip Hop Artist “Dave B” Gets ‘Punch Drunk’ In Interview & Performance @ Bumbershoot 2015

Here at Jayforce.com we love putting people on to dope artists that you might not be familiar with.  We are happy to say that we have a direct connection with the Seattle Hip Hop scene thanks to good folks like DJ DV One, DJ Hyphen, and J Moore.  One artist out of the Pacific Northwest that we have posted about quite regularly is Dave B. On my recent trip to Seattle for Bumbershoot 2015 I finally got the chance to meet Dave B in person and hear more about his upcoming album Punch Drunk that will feature production from well known Seattle producer Jake One.  Check out some exclusive content I captured while Dave B was being interviewed on Sunday Night Sound Session with J Moore & also concert footage of his Bumbershoot performance.

Live From China: Dog Meat Festival (Documentary)

“It’s meaty… horribly, horribly meaty… mixed with that familiar doggy smell…”

Okay. Westerners may need to settle themselves and their stomachs. And open their minds. Yes. It’s just as you’d suspect: VICE is at a meat market (in the Chinese province of Yulin) where they butcher and sell dogs to lots and lots of people who eat them. You will hear shocking terms used… like tasty… and healthy…

No judgements. Okay, that’s bull… but watch the video expo though. It’s VICE, so you know the reporting will come at the story from a different perspective that might cause you to rethink. Compelling.

(Gotta say… the reporter, Izzy Yeung, is hella cute.)

In 2013, the Yulin festival gathered so much negative press that this year, the local government denied the Summer Solstice dog-eating tradition ever even existed. But that hasn’t stopped locals from celebrating—nor has it stopped die-hard activists from flooding the town in an attempt to rescue the dogs before the slaughter. VICE Reports headed to Yulin this year to get to the bottom of the most controversial festival in China.
