One more shot.
Words couldn’t possibly describe this day. Amazing? Nah, not quite. Talib Kweli, Yassin Bey (aka Mos Def), my crazy self & the best people in Tampa, Florida. Ol’ Dirty Sundays.
I had an amazing day. I didn’t set foot outside of my house, I completed tons of projects & started on some new ones, I actually watched a little bit of TV, took a nice siesta, ordered my favorite food for dinner, got my MacGyver on & was successful, all while listening to my favorite tunes. The lesson learned? Loving yourself is a guaranteed life-long romance. 1 ♥. - Doc
Best of the Bay 2011.
You don’t remember everything that happens to you in life, but there are some moments that become incredible memories. It’s hard for me to sit here at 3:40AM on my computer, tired, my knee injury causing havoc, and try to explain to you, the reader, just how awesome my night was. I’ll give it a go anyway.
I got to witness a hip hop legend get behind the turntables, demonstrate, and prove that turtablelism is a form of an instrument. Rob Swift hyped up the Ol’ Dirty Sundays crowd like never before. He played a song by Mozart and managed to cut and scratch to it as if Mozart himself wrote the score. I was amazed, the crowd was amazed. He managed to keep the energy going for well over an hour. That was my first time seeing Rob Swift live and not only was it live, it was at my favorite location, on my favorite day, and I was right in front of the DJ booth. As if things couldn’t get better, another legendary DJ joined the party and surprised us. DJ Charlie Chase from the Cold Crush Brothers, another hip hop pioneer graced us with his presence and made the party gain twice the energy. Hip hop was in the place to be.
Surrounded by my favorite people, listening to my favorite music, played by some of the best in the world… Proof enough that hip hop lives. At least at Ol’ Dirty Sundays it does. What could possibly top this? Oh yeah, Talib Kweli next week. ;)
1 love world,
P.S. The bboys made me proud tonight.
