I was invited down to Cincy to take part in the Gypsy festival. It was a beautiful event, and I will be at the next event. For those that don't know the Gypsy lounge has a spot in cincy and columbus ohio.
They invited local talent from all over the state to share what they do. The poets, Hip-Hop artist, R&B, Jazz,Rock, and etc..
I want to first send out shouts to Gypsy lounge for putting on the event (especially Abdi and Zee). Then I need to send out some shots for Rasul the Knowbody that helped get me there.
KnowVernacular slam team put it down sharing there soul with some powerful pieces (coach Jugh Jeffner, Lotus Blossom, and Kari) giving out a mix of soul and truth. There was a Rock band that laid down some hot shit, known Grey Leaves.
Unfortunately my phone died on the way down so I didn't get no pics, but I want to send props out to ShyRony (to check out some of their music hit them up @ reverbnation.com/ShyRony) for putting on a hot set. Beautiful young ladies and I will write some more on them in the future when I do another salute to local artist.
Hey, summer is coming and it is time to turn off the radio and get out and support local artist. They can only get as good as their support. So that means they need to make money, so get out and support what you like. Start demanding that your local radio station plays more local artist. You dont find it strange that everywhere you go the same shit is on rotation. Where is the local flavor, and why isn't it being supported by the local media. The radio stations wanted us to get up and call our politicians to block the bill that would have them paying royalties to artist, now in return you need to demand that they start showcasing some local talent. If they don't lets just cut out the middleman that is trying to force feed us bullshit through the airwaves.
Peace and 1hunid years
