SilentStage x Woes x Obama!

To celebrate Barack Obama’s step into the Oval Office, Silent Stage has teamed up with Aaron “Angry Woebots” Martin to produce a limited edition “Shaka” offset poster. Aaron was asked back in July 08′ to be a part of the “Manifest Hope” show which kicked off back in Denver Colorado, August 25th 2008 and ending in Washington DC, January 17-19 2009. With names like David Choe, Shepard Fairey, Andy Howell, David Flores, Ron English, & many others. Aaron was quick to support his home town hero from Hawaii with an Obama “Shaka” painting featuring Barack Obama in a Hawaiian Shirt throwing up the traditional “Shaka” symbol.


Each Limited Edition Offset Poster is hand numbered & measures 18″ x 24″ & comes with Certificate of Authenticity. The poster will be an edition of 300 and will price at $25 each. The posters will be available for sale on on Monday, January 19th at 1pm PST. You can also check out a small “Manifest Hope” video which features Aaron Martin’s painting in the Denver Gallery back on August 25th 2008.

Slapp Symphony & Tassho Pearce!

Ok, what does it matter if you win the Hawaii Music Awards? Who knows, honestly i don’t think it does anything for your career. Maybe its a notch in the ego belt? Whatevers, if the homies is being nominated it would be good to have them get their shine. To let HAWAII know that “Ride or Dye?” is not a good Hawaii representative and the some dude from OC named after the creator of American Idol is NOT HAWAII?  Support the homies!


On the real, Slapp Symphony- Let t let and Westbrook is some cool and talented braddahs. What puts them apart from majority of the crews out there is they show mad love to the Hawaii’s underground Hip-Hop. Make sure you vote for them under the RAP category!


What can we say, Sho is the vet. Been there and keeps doing it. This album is quality. Heaters! Vote, for Tassho under the HIP-HOP category.


Heard of small kind about Illmind. SloMo reppin’ Hawaii hard. Mushmouf, dats the homie right there. Yall remember him battling O6 or rolling with Infinite Kingdom. How bout’ 10:15 throwdown. There new crew Fortilive will be back in Hawaii rocking a Pro Bowl party along with OG Homie Tassho Pearce/! Feb 9th is the date. check back for mo’ info.

E Komo Mai…


After 1,000,000+ hits…

Here it is, the new LS site. Nothing fancy, tech, or flashy. Overdue informational about LS, Artists, A Mailing List, a FAQ, and a Discography. We will be posting Innerviews with the movers, shakers, weirdos, peeps close to us, and those that need to get their over due props! More video and audio. We are working out the kinks but will have a weekly track posted so you can listen to the new while you surf, dude.

A few little nooks and crannies to be explored so if you got it take some time and check it. But we will be updating the site with angry content daily so don’t be surprised if things change.

HUGE MAHALO to FYBES, for web slinging all these years. His knowledge, time, and commitment to LS will always be priceless. Check out his handy work at as well as other off shoots. (He just copped a MPC 100o and itching to work, get at a ninja)

So lets all work, lets network…

God Bless ~ ktc

ps. Ahhhhh, you thought i forgot about the fagboard, i mean the tagboard. Say peace out! What was supposed to be used for posting up to date info, events, and opinions, only turned into plain nonsense. Out of all the people that have been helping with the site and i consider their opinion a factor, i was the only one who wanted it up. So now if you got something to say about somebody we taking it back to “old western” steez and say it to their face, Mann up.
