Mic on Deck Presents… The Battle of Sugar Hill

8Dec

POSTED BY

Maybe its the sound of the turntables and live instruments. Maybe it’s the raw sound of live emcees…but this is hip hop being brought to us. Everything from the pre-planned verses to freestyles to past the time and get a reaction. This is Sully’s. This is where worlds meet in CT hip hop. From the back packers to the street tested. From the political to the drug laced. This is the crossroads for many of the local talent. The battle for sugar hill showcase is a supermarket of hip hop right now. From DJ Stress and Rockoleone to Crooked Mindz…everyone is here…no egos, just music. Mic on Deck does a great job in making sure you get a little bit of everything on your plate. Self Suffice hosts with enough charisma to keep the crowd hooked. His rep as a emcee is enough to earn the respect from the crowd and other artists in the building.

You know things are gonna be amazing when you got Joey Batts floating around just to soak up the vibe. Dot Got it was in the building, surveying the masterpieces being brought to us. Various members of the A Team came through to show support. The small venue was packed, but no one seemed to mind as the music was good enough that you did mind weaving through the crowd to get a better view of the artists.

Did I mention there were no egos floating about. Nobody complaining about time going over. Nobody complaining about going before this person or that person. The next event is set for Dec. 13th. I, for one, will be there to get my fresh intake of organic hip hop.

Mixtape Spotlight: Joey Batts – My Apologies to Lady Orwell

I’ve seen Joey Batts perform probably over 100 times. Out of all those times, I’ve probably shared the mic with him for half. The other half of the time, I was just impressed at his skills in the audience. You think you know someone…

Joey just put out one of the most honest, interesting, innovative, and revealing records that anyone that I’ve ever personally known has put out. It’s dope throughout the entire project – 100 percent on point. The artist in me is threatened. The fan in me is entertained. The father in me is tired and wishes that his kids would let him sleep in for once.

My suggestion would be to support this. Not just download it and listen to it, hit up Joey’s online store, cop a t-shirt, show up to a show, maybe even buy this record on iTunes since it is just, that, good…

Joey Batts Vs. Manchyld TONIGHT

3Mar

POSTED BY

I think the format of this battle is incredible. Every aspect of an emcees abilities come full circle here, besides just dissing acapella… that’s why a lot of battle rappers make shitty music btw. Yea, those cats can spin an acapella at you that’ll kill, but they might choose shitty beats and not be able to keep a beat as well without the ability to keep their own pace.

I don’t know shit about Manchyld, but from knowing Joey the better part of a decade, I totally think, at minimum, he’s the best in the state when it comes to Freestyle, word play, and crowd control. I’m snagging the audio to post it up here TONIGHT.

Until then…

— It’s been awhile since I’ve performed. I’ve been working heavy on getting a mixtape done, establishing this blog’s presence, running a label, and being a Dad. (In opposite order.) Actually I think it’s only been a couple of weeks since I’ve performed… I don’t know anymore. My life is kind of scary because it looks like I’m going to have less and less time to do anything creative. It was kind of a last minute thing, my involvement, which is why my name isn’t on the flyer. I’m going to be there though. Chea.

So this is going to be a different shoe show. I’m performing a quick set, but I’m also going to be giving a speech real quick. Something I don’t ever do. Joey’s presence jump started my career and I’m going to talk about who he is and where I came from and all that stuff.

So come through.
