It’s Still Bigger than Hip Hop. Dead Prez is playing Columbus with Copywrite and the 3rd on this bill with a few others.
While “It’s Bigger than Hip Hop” is the hit. Really, I’m using this show to show my favorite video in the history of rap, “Hell Yeah”. I posted it above. While you might not like the fact that its white people being robbed, you need to get past that and just enjoy the fact that it’s people being robbed. Why get defensive about race?
Look how much fun Dead Prez is having robbing tourists, pizza men, stores and their jobs. Look how attractive Dead Prez are when robbing white people, pizza men, stores and their jobs.
This video is especially awesome because it shows vegans aren’t pussies. And also has a Rick Ross cameo near the end.(hint he is wearing a mask)
But yeah, Dead Prez, the one group that figured out that revolutionaries are supposed to look cool are performing in Columbus.
Anyway, Dead Prez, Copywrite and the 3rd + more at Skullys October 22nd.

MP3:L.e.Fortheuncool-Lifestyle Excessiveness Feat Naledge
L.e. for the Uncool teams up with Naledage from Kidz in the Hall.
Beat by Rashad. Thats right Columbus cats with a Duck Down artist on a track.
Song itself is dope. Basically about being true to yourself…. L.e. makes a good point about not calling yourself the next Dilla or Pac and just doing you.
J. Rawls leaked this last night. It’s the first jam off of L.e.’s upcoming mixtape “The Measure”, which is set to drop August 31st.

Here is a picture of Stalley at Bodega.
The narrative is that Stalley moved to New York to play basketball from Ohio. He eventually linked up with Mos Def, Dame Dash, etc, and now is getting back in touch with Ohio. He went to a Cavs game with the Eighty81 crew.. He visited his old high school in Massillon.. He hung out in the Short North with me.. And he recorded music with some Columbus artists which is availble below.
The Smoking Section put up an EP that Stalley did with a Elevator Music, a Columbus based label slash collective.
The narrative leads to tonight’s show with Elevator Music.

Wale is returning to Columbus tonight. Last time Wale was in town, I enjoyed myself so immensely that I rambled about it on here with this show review which will prolly alienate any new female readers who were under the misconception that I am a decent human because of DW’s Tucker Maxx coverage. This show should be even more funner because Wale is being backed by a Go-Go band.
(DMV natives —>Meta4ce, DCKareem stand-up)
Tonight’s extravaganza is at the Garage Bar which I am told is in the Arena District(you know that weird area that looks like the future in a really mundane, unimagnitive sci-fi movie.. A few pre-sales are still available at Milkbar & the internet somewhere( 10 dollars)
Tickets are 12 at the door. The show’s promoter Schoolboy said the set times look like this:
dj inform 9-11
poitier pockets 11:15
the 3rd 11:30
tanya morgan and big sean 12
ucb will probably jam with wale for about an hr
inform will close it out, or any other good dj who wants to jump on the decks and has a laptop with them
