This beatroot was oddly interesting. The evening started off with DJ Cozy losing his keys and stuck in Makakilo. Anthouse, was a no show? No phone call no text, just a crummy email after the fact. Then this old dude named “Electric Dreams” shows up and says he was ready to be a Alternate. Come to find out the OG has some beats. Last, out of nowhere this one dude comes up to the stage just as i decided to myself that Anthouse was a no show. His name was “Chastise” from Okalahoma. The Okalahomie had some heaters. Big ups to the Judges: Race, Studderin’ Stan, and Quest. EMC and all the peoples. See you the finals.

…Just in case you missed the “show” here is some footy. Super wack that you can’t record the show. Why wouldn’t you want your fans to record your show? Money? You tube is viral! In fact you can make more residual loot when your fans do your job. Wack. Worried about someone making a DVD? Unless its a Obama sex tape then don’t worry. Big ups Well.Being.

Fybes get his due.

Yes, about time that the homie and OG Lightsleeper producer/spiderman/mc? get his just due. If you know Fybes, you know that this is not like him. He doesn’t want the spotlight and could careless if he is hyped up or in a mag. But i do! hah!

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.

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.
