Lyrics Born is one of the hardest working people we know…he’s been at it for 23 years and released 8 albums and 7 mixtapes. He’s compiling it all in a Greatest Hits package to be released in the Spring, but he is doing a Kickstarter to gather the funds to press up some special copies. Hop over to check out the pledge packages and the new exclusive song:
Culture Clash SF was a veritable who’s who of Bay Area hip hop last night at the Regency Ballroom. Triple Threat (Apollo, Shortkut & Vinroc) took the top spot. B-Love took some pics.
Dirty Bird brought out Pharoahe Monch & Too $hort
(crazy filming from the crowd courtesy of Boogie Brown)
Triple Threat surprised the crowd a personalized version of “Nuthin’ But A G-Thang” and an appearance by Crystal Waters
(side of the stage filming is never the greatest, but you get the idea…)
