Another day filled with great hip-hop


Mar 20 2009, 0:42

I caught up with the homies Tanya Morgan at Ironworks BBQ and after a full stomach of some delicious brisket, ribs, links and banana pudding, they put the smash down on an exclusive interview for us. Their sophomore album, Brooklynatti, is set for a May release date.

Production duo Keelay & Zaire got some camera time too as their album, Ridin' High recently dropped on March 10th. Be on the lookout for interviews from both of these artists soon!

The next stop of the day was the the 3rd Annual Urban Meet n Greet. Anybody and everybody involved with hip-hop on some way were at this venue at one point or another. Like the old days of the Gavin Convention, emcees Mykah Nine from Freestyle Fellowship/Project Blowed, Balance, and Zumbi fromZion I, with DJ Rhettmatic from the World Famous Beat Junkies on the beatbox.

Also caught up with super-producer 14KT and buff1 reppin' A-Side Worldwide. Check for their video interviews in the very near future as well.

Around the corner from the meet and greet was another hip-hop showcase featuring MYX artists Jern Eye, Fortilive and Keelay & Zaire.

After a quick breather at the hotel, I'll be out and about for a hectic night highlighted by Big Boi's performance with a live band, Freeway with Jake One, the A-Side Worldwide and ABB showcases, 8Ball and MJG, Strong Arm Steady, Pete Rock, Janelle Monae, Jean Grae, Pac Div, Foreign Legion, Tanya Morgan, Zion I, TRUTHLiVE and tons of other artists I can't remember. Stay tuned for more updates!
