the live mixtape
Posts Tagged ‘the live mixtape’
It’s been a while, but I’m glad to be back at the helm here at B&B to present to you the gems around these internets. Long story short, my absence was due to a solo concert I had recently performed and thus had to focus alot on practising for the last month. Besides hip-hop, I also love classical music, and playing the piano for a good ten years now, I wanted to play a full show in which I got to take complete ownership. It was something I’ll never forget and I am forever grateful to the people who had helped me make this vision come to life.
Speaking of live shows, Black Thought tore it down at this year’s Manifesto. With J. Period on the 1’s and 2’s, he not only ran through the standards, but went in on every style of beat imaginable, laying his own rhymes and impersonating the original artists, from Slick Rick to Drake. Few rappers can match Thought as a freestylist, making it a very memorable show. This is a sick original concept and I hope to hear more of it in the future.
