She’s So Fresh III

the good folks over at the B Side Show have a post with all type of video from She’s So Fresh III out in NY. Shout out to the host, Tasty Keish and the woman that puts it all together, Bless Roxwell.

From the B Side Show:
“One of the best places to catch some of this raw talent is at the She’s So Fresh” showcase put together by fellow femcee Bless Roxwell. As always the last showcase, held on 2/4/10, was a success with talent from the 5 boroughs and Canada blessing the mic.”

View photos from the event on Bless Roxwell’s site.

Pearls of Wisdom Show in the South Bronx

This was a dope event thrown by The Rebel Diaz Arts Collective and Mama’s Hip Hop Kitchen. DJ Bonnie Danger and DJ Jasmine Solano were in the house. The video is a little distorted. If you have better footage let me know.

If you weren’t there…. whoo wee!

Don’t make that mistake again.

Bless Roxwell came out swinging as the first act. She got the party started and kept it going.

Nemiss started off by “taking the time to tap into [her] divine” and we’re glad she did. She ripped it! She has a crazy energy, she can sing, and she has lyrics. Don’t believe me? Listen to Bombshell and you tell me.

Eagle Nebula was next. Why did she show up with a live show? Stop PLAYING! She really put on a full show, but a few of my favorites were “Good Day” and “Love Bombs”.

Singer Jessie Rose went up next. She brought a woman positive vibe with her opening song.

Patty Dukes
went on stage and brought us a gift: her student A Figs. They rocked the crowd the whole set.

Kallae All Day is a polished as any current performer. She started out with a dope a cappella joint, launched into a song, brought Likwuid on stage to do a song, and closed with a crazy a cappella. You want personality? Lyrics? A show? Kallae All Day is the one for you.

Lah Tere closed the show. You know what they say about saving the best for last? That ish is true.

Soundclash Rap Battle in Los Angeles

This was the second battle put on under the Soundclash moniker. The venue moved from Leimert Park to downtown at the 2nd Street Jazz Cafe. There were two ties that went to a 16 bar tie breaker, some rowdy folks, a potentially disruptive discussion of whether some folks were biased… well, to make a long story short: it was cracking, you should have been there. In case you weren’t I’m putting up a few of the battles. Next time: bring ya ass!

To watch all the battles from Soundclash visit Piss In The Wind on YouTube.
