Red & Meth Live in Detroit

Published

on

The Hip Hop gods blessed us when they put solo emcees Red Man and Method Man together. I truly feel that this duo is one of the most slept on in Hip Hop History. How fitting it was that on Michigan’s annual “HASH BASH” day that 2 of hip hops finest smokers hit town brought to you by the HOUSE OF DANK.

Much to our surprised the first act to hit the stage was one of our favorites OBA ROWLAND! Always a beast on the Mic Oba brings the same fun energy you hear on his recordings. Big shout out to his DJ LIMELIGHTZ! Even tho OBA opened the show his dj demanded the same respect as the headliners on that stage. He must have brought the record back 8 times waiting on the light tech to turn the lights down on stage! Thats how you stick together!!! I didnt get to hear “DREAMS” but his set slapped!

Just as much as we wanted to see Red & Meth this show was a MUST attend after seeing Royce Da 5’9 was on the bill!  We dont get to shows to early but with Royce on the stage we didnt want to miss a thing. Ripping thru his set with brother Kid Vishiss, Royce gave the home town a little bit of everything running of several of his classic joints. Talked to alot of people walking up to the venue and when i mentioned that Royce was on the show attendees got even more excited. Great to see the Nickle Nine getting the respect he deserves.

By the time you get to your late 40’s i dont see to many people smiling about doing anything. Let alone WORK! For me thats what made this show even more entertaining. I witnessed two what many in hip hop standards would consider “OLD MEN” run circles around what a majority of these artist are doing in hip hop today. No rapping over they lyrics and you could hear EVERY word just like the records, even some light choreography “NO NOT THE NEW EDITION TYPE”. As animated as ever they made sure the crowd knew that the energy we gave them is what we would get in return. After playing for a good hour running the classics they have together, by themselves and even some guest appearances from members of the WU the night was one of a kind. We would like to thank PHRESHPICS84 for sharing her photography!

RAP ROYAL RUMBLE! A sit down with Josef Coney Island

Published

So we just Recently had the “RAP ROYAL RUMBLE” a Rhymin Round Robin? What is this exactly?

     It was a night featuring 4 rappers going song for song for 8 rounds (8 songs a piece)  while SNTNCK mixed the set!  We were set up in a ring and instead of each performer doing a straight set of material we all went back and forth Iike a round robin!
How did you come up with thisRobin!
I love the vibe from cyphers and wanted to bring that feel to a showcase.  This is a perfect way to keep the crowd engaged, give the DJ something more to do than just press play,, and keep the rappers on their toes and at their best by putting them right after eachother.
Is this going to become a regular event?
Every 3 months we will do a RAP ROYAL RUMBLE!  Trading cards included
What went into choosing the artist and producer that participated?
I wanted to bring different talented acts that are sonically diverse and have fan bases that don’t really cross eachother but would like everyone on the bill.  We pretty much decided to do the show about 2 weeks before the event. I wanted to book Isaac Castor at the spot and I ran into him and foulmouth at the 37th Shield Library in Eastern Market (shouts to Lord Dru and Dj Psycho), from there I wanted to get Crimson Alchemist on the ticket and had done a couple shows this year already with Dango Forlaine so reaching out to them was real easy… in fact Crimson Alchemist was also at the record store while we were there.  The whole thing was booked in under 30 mins…
The graphic aspect was dope, how did that all come about?
I sat with my designer Kyi from Kyiros Media and explained the vibe I was looking for sent a few reference pics and let them take It from there… we are currently working out the rules for the RAP ROYAL RUMBLE trading card game.
What can we expect in the future from the creatives that put all this together?
First Fridays at the Co.Lab will feature hip-hop shows- release partys, open mic game shows, and of course the RAP ROYAL RUMBLE.  Every third Thursday will be the Cypher. And we have tons of electronic and other music throughout the month as well.  The Co.lab is located at the  Russell industrial center in building 1 room 135.
I forgot to ask, was there a winner? Who won?
Detroit rap won this one. We all killed it. But to give you a real answer I think Crimson Alchemist  had the edge, I mean she came with a bushido blade, and was the last emcee to spit so by the rules of the royal rumble I’d have to give her the Dub...
