Performance: GreaseKydz – “Freestyle” (Video)

GreaseKydz was at The Remix “Sweet 16” Celebration (check that out here), too. That was a HAPPENING! Until that night, they had not performed together in years… but obviously haven’t missed a beat (or BAR) on the mics!!

The theme was RESPECT! Said with ALLCAPS (no cap)! So once the mics went hot… GreaseKydz spit pure FIRE for The Remix’s Anniversary Celebration #FirstTimeTogetherInYears #AndTheSwordsAreStillSharp #FreestylingForRadioFREE #PRICELESS
ALL CAPS, no cap

So much RESPECT and LOVE for the Mighty GKZ!

ALL CAPS, no cap: BoneBreaker Jones, Sam Peezy, J-Sun KOA, GreaseKydz & Sikz Earned My RESPECT

Above: J-Sun on the left, Sikz on the right, and all the GreaseKydz right down the middle from front to back (Tea Bag da Herbalist, Shawty Plx, Expo, Phobro da Ab)!

…and that was waaay before this past Friday night! That is why I extended an invitation for each of them to give a feature LIVE performance at the 16th Anniversary Celebration of The Remix, one of Atlanta’s best and longest-running Hip-Hop radio shows. When @ATLRemix gave me the green light to program the first hour of the six-hour event with a live cypher-inspired lineup, I immediately reached out to the talented folks who showed love, showed up, and showed out on my dream mixtape “Livin Proof” Rebooth LP project (posted on here a few years back). When I could not pay them anything more than RESPECT, they did that for me. And though my pockets are still hella lean and linty, I still have RESPECT, with interest, for all these guys (including post-Rebooth newcomer Sikz). RESPECT earned, RESPECT due, RESPECT paid… In that way, me and mine are very wealthy indeed (RESPECT stays being paid). And the night of the event, the brothers showed love, showed up, and showed out like I knew they would (and then some)!

Sidebar: RESPECT is crucial, you see. So much so, RESPECT! was the theme for our portion of the Anniversary Celebration event; a program within a program you will see tagged #ALLCAPS #nocap around the Interwebs. Because we mean it, we are shouting #RESPECT to everyone involved in making this happen – in ALL CAPS, no cap, from the tippy-top of the ‘Snocap’ (as in ‘snow-cap’ on top of the mountain, as you will see in the logo after the jump).

Engaging interviews and mind-blowing performances from my bredren BoneBreaker Jones (with Sam Peezy aka Tony Factory), J-Sun KOA (King Of Alabama), GreaseKydz (Expo, Phobro da Ab, Shawty Plx, Tea Bag da Herbalist) and Sikz #RESPECT #ALLCAPS #nocap

And the family of support I had was HUGE: Gerald Olivari, DJ Yogi, Tierra, BigDee, and Brittany of @ATLRemix …videography by Si-Video Production’s own Robert Nunnally and on-camera Host/Spokesmodel Liza Ashe of @GoodCurvy …my invited ‘press corps’ (@ArtByOdell and Ismael AbduSalaam) …and my consultant & stalwart ally Iman Lexington who answered all my what-do-you-think calls and emails leading up to the event. Even my nephew Jasen (J-Sun’s son) came through and stayed with his old uncle to make sure I was ‘safe’ while out that late at night. Plus, after a long work week, seeing all the familiar and new friendly faces in the place gave me LIFE #RESPECT #ALLCAPS #nocap

The whole night was EPIC! And, man, oh, MAN! Just wait until we get our audio and video finalized. Keep keeping your ears and eyes open for that. And keep checking back here for the exclusives!

(In the meantime, I tossed in a few behind-the-scenes screenshots after the jump.)

Dang it! I keep slipping out here. Gotta press my ear to the ground harder so I can HEAR from the underground.

SikzPho – “Sunburn” (Google Doodle Remix)

YOOOOO!!!! Thiz shiz iz yoga-flame-FIYAAAH! You probably know PhoBro from Greasekydz. He does production for Sikz when they link up to form the Hip-Hop monster SikzPho. Well, see, Google put this fun widget (called a ‘Doodle’) on its main search page last week to honor the widely accepted birthday of Hip-Hop. The widget let even a novice like me have fun ‘deejaying’ (definitely in quotes when it comes to my skills, but epic fun still).

Well… SikzPho was NOT effin’ around even as they were effin’ around with the Google Doodle. This is what they produced. Banging!

Happy Birthday, Hip-Hop! To one and all!
