Cormega, Large Pro, Craig G, Neek The Exotic: Live in NYC (Video)

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

This appears to have gone down very recently, perhaps this weekend at Tamany Hall, NYC. That’s a lot of Queens legends sharing one stage. It’s definitely nice to see Cormega, Large Professor, Craig G and Neek The Exotic having fun and ripping mics after all of these years. Enough talking, just peep the video.

Record Store Day April 17, 2009 @ Amoeba Hollywood & Fat Beats LA

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

Record Store Day is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Record Store Day was conceived by Chris Brown, employee of the independent record store chain, Bull Moose, located in Maine and New Hampshire and was founded in 2007 by Eric Levin, Michael Kurtz, Carrie Colliton, Amy Dorfman, Don Van Cleave and Brian Poehner as a celebration of the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally. Record Store Day is celebrated the third Saturday in April.

The third annual Record Store Day took place on Saturday, April 17, 2010. Being in LA, I went to Amoeba Music in Hollywood and Fat Beats LA. DJ Spinderella (of Salt-N-Pepa) had a in-store DJ set @5PM. I went there to check it out with my brother and copped some music at the same time. After, I directly went to Fat Beats LA to check out Rakaa Iriscience (of Dilated Peoples) & Chali 2na (of Jurassic 5) performing with DJ Rhettmatic @6PM. Rakaa performed two tracks from his upcoming solo album. The Legendary Craig G, who was in LA, dropped by Fat Beats LA a little while after. He spitted a freestyle while DJ Rhettmatic was on the turntables playing the instrumental "Welcome To LA" by Xzibit. Of course, you know that it was from the top of the dome and he ripped it! Check out the footage from this incredible day!
