DJ Pos 2 sent me this video of S.P.I.R.I.T. bringing the Polar Records Showcase to a frenzy Saturday here in Columbus. S.P.I.R.I.T. were Columbus’s flagship group during the mid 90’s. I once saw a S.P.I.R.I.T. performance at the Newport where Rizz commanded the stage by removing his shoe and making it the crowd’s focal point. They were like the Leader’s of the New School of Columbus and he was the Busta Rhymes..

If you grew up on Gangstarr, Saul Williams or Tribe Called Quest and/or also believe in “Columbus” music than you should download Dj KrateDigga’s album “Snaps, Taps, Booms & Baps”. The album’s title is an ode to a now-defunct Snaps & Taps, a jazz & spoken word club in downtown Columbus where Krate got his start. It also lists off his philosophy of music where the subtle and smooth exist in Hip Hop exist as a balance to the harshness of everyday life. Snaps, Taps, Booms & Baps guests Co Ciy of the 3rd, S.P.I.R.I.T., Eddie Bayard, Speak Willams, Talisha Homes, & More.
The album has a real Lyricist’s Lounge feel.
