The Spliff: Kooley High

SpliffDec4th2009Val The Vandle is at it again. Bringing the acts you want to see, and ones you NEED to see.  This Friday The Spliff’s got the best from the I.E. Noa James. The only way I can describe Noa James is he’ll spit ill lyrics, choke you out with the mic cord, and stomp a hole in your chest.  He’s that ill. Check out Sounds Of A Monster and you’ll know what I’m talking about. And on the other side of the spectrum you got Kooley High. The last time they were out here I didn’t get a chance to see them perform, but this time I’m there. If you get a chance catch Kooley High’s  documentary One Day before you head to the show. To round out the list you’ll have Ty & Kory from Buddha Brown, Speak from AppleBird, and Hawdwerk & Jansport J- who dropped High Power Moves a while back, so download a copy of that too. VerBs will be your host for the evening and always on deck Val The Vandle, Spintelect, GroWeyez & Printz Paul. This will definitely be a show to see. Catch you all at The Spliff! BIG thanks to Val for the heads up.

cARTer – Outta Space dir. by JeromeD

I got up one Sunday afternoon, and wanted to go check out the sights. I headed straight to the  HVW8 spot off Melrose. I met Ty G, real cool cat and down to earth. We talked a little art and then hip hop. Now you gotta understand where the HVW8 gallery is, everyone hanging out on Melrose passes by that joint. So we stepped out in front of the store, and who do we see getting filmed…Carter. Man it was like getting a live show fo-free. But to make a long story short, the HVW8 gallery is one of the locations this video was shot at. “It was a good day.” – Ice Cube. On a sidenote Jerome D is making big moves. Keep yo eyes pealed for his videos. BIG thanks Ty for the convo that day. Carter keep doin yo thing.

Sneaker Pimps LAIf you spend more on sneakers than rent or haven’t been to a packed out hip hop show in a long time, this is for you.

Carter – The Carter Family Reunion

the carter family reunion

When I first read about Carter on IllRoots, I was thinking that this is another down south cat that is a knock-off of Goodie Mob or Outkast. But I’ll tell you when I’m wrong, and this was one of those rare moments. I was totally wrong. The concept of the mixtape is cool with some mixes of other “Carters” in it. The thing that makes this mixtape stand out for me it Carter goes from Jay-Z and Kanye to Little Drangon…that’s just dope. It shows the musical influence that Carter has. Download it and hear what I’m talking about.  See what else Carter is up to. BIG thanks to IllRoots for posting it.
