Cd101 summerfest just got wavy . Envelope won the contest of public opinion. Oddly enough, he may be the only rapper in Columbus that truely follows the traditional formula of blowing up in his city. Neighborhood backing—->Crews—->Rocking the Party—->Record Sales—->Radio play.
(Granted radio play is on CD101 not 107.5, record sales are at indie rock stores not hoodspots, the party is either at Skullys or Bourbon Street not Icon or Club Ice, the Crews are BSA, Thought Set, Weightless instead of the Bloods, and his neighborhood is Clintonville not Livingston Ave. )
Too Short, told y’all:”Get in where you fit in”.
Anyway ,Envelope will be performing on @ the LC alongside Matt & Kim, Stellastar —-who has some song that isn’t about spatial intelligence or night vision—- called Graffiti Eyes,Black Joe Louis and Honey Bears,the Living Things, Band of Skulls, and Company of Thieves.
Tickets are 5 bucks.
Good job Columbus.
