After the jump is a rough video I put together from footage of the 2011 Daymon Day Parade shot byPath and his friend Logan Walter Stakewith soundbites from Envelope, William Dodson (Daymon’s Dad) and CJ Townsend.
8 Fest was held this past May in Athens, OH outside of Ohio Universities main campus. The Princeton Review has recently ranked Ohio University as the United States #1 Party School…. We’d like to think 8 Fest is the reason. Cleveland, OH’s own, Machine Gun Kelly, headlined the event along w/ the likes of DJ E-V, Cornelius Jackson, Fly Union, iPhonic, Swagg, DJ Edski, Ray Jr. and many more, the crowd of 14,000 + students witnessed the best music festival Ohio has to offer. The party continues… 9 Fest Is Coming.
Next Month Columbus, Ohio will be celebrating the 6th Annual Daymon Day with a weekend of love driven community activities.
On Daymon Day Eve, September 16th, there will be a show at Skullys Music Diner, Nick Tolford & Co, Envelope & Detox, and Freaky Franz & Cornelius Jackson will perform. Johnny Cashola & True Skillz will play records. The admission is 5 Dollars. The door goes to cover parade costs like permits and renting the required amount of police escorts for the parade. For more info & to RSVP Visit Daymon Day Eve’s Facebook
On Daymon Day, September 17th the parade will leave Tuttle Park promptly at 8pm. There will be a mural painted during the day. So feel free to come earlier. We will be dispersing a 7inch record of Daymon’s local hit song, “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit” prior to the parade.(Details will be forthcoming). The afterparty will be at the Carabar. Admission is free. It will be special and more announcements will be made in the future. For more details go to the Daymon Day Parade’s event facebook.
Sammy Bananas is returning to Columbus. When he was here last year, it was the perfect cure for the wintertime blahs. This time he will be joined by vocalist Maggie Horn to do electro-pop versions of rap songs like their rendition of Kanye West’s All The Lights that isavailable above. They call themselves Telephoned when they do that.
Sammy will also dejay. Cornelius Jackson, and Dirty Current will provide entertaiment as well. This is at Sweatin. At Axis. Thursday. Look at the Flyer.
OSU graduate and Cleveland Cav’s DJ Steph Floss video blogged Ohio’s involvement at A3C, a Hip Hop festival in Atlanta for his website Eighty81.. So above is a video with snippets of Stalley and Fly Union’s performances.
Below is DJ Steph FLoss getting ready to head to Atlanta from Cleveland. Once in Atlanta, he goes to a New Era instore that Fly Union, CJ Townsend aka Cornelius Jackson, Stalley, Le For the Uncool, Dion from Elevator Music, Pac Div, Hustle Simmons and plenty others are kicking it at. Floss introduces Fly Union and Stalley to each other for the first time, while CJ, Fly Union’s dj compliments Floss on inventing a new drink.
Obviously the big story today is the OSU football game. Throw your rah-rag up.
Well, after the bucks win, whether you head to a parade, a festival, a BW3 or take a nap, try to come out to the Daymon Day Parade Afterparty.
Columbus legends The Fonosluts and DJ True Skillz will team up with Get Right Columbus, CJ Townsend and Iyeball of Fly Union to do it like they use to do , and continue to.
New School x Old type jump-off.
CJ and Iyeball will be coming returning from New York tonight where Iyeball’s rap group Fly Union and CJ just performed at Santo’s Party House for a BET Music Matters Showcase.
Daymon was a mentor for Fly Union, obviously a member of the Fonosluts, and he was also in BSA along with the Get Right Columbus fam.
Daymon would be proud of both Get Right, Fly U’s success, and be stoked to see Hip Hop culture in Columbus flourishing.(this is just the tip of the iceberg.)
So it should be fun.
