Later, we were treated to the intriguing vocal stylings of five man crew Contact Play and Cambridge based SMB crew who were all on stage together having a whale of a time. Their performance received mixed reactions and went on a bit long, but my opinion is they were dope and someone should send me the CD. Check them out on myspace.
By midnight, Sleaze was up strutting his stuff and as is now customary, at least half of the audience was smoking outside the venue so by the time Souls of Mischief took to the stage everybody was appropriately toasted. The Hiero team showed how it's really done bringing out old favorites like 'Oakland Blackouts' and bangers like 'Proper Aim' off the new Montezuma's Revenge album (go BUY it). Years of experience have streamlined SOM’s raw energy into a formidable hip-hop experience.
We missed A-Plus who wasn't at the show due to family matters, but afterwards Opio and Tajai were cool enough to hang out and fire up a blunt.
Many thanks to Sy and Top Billin for hosting, we look forward to forthcoming events!
