Fresh back from NYC and Rock The Bells. Had an epic time with the AK roll dogs and my brother from a Danish mother. The show was bonkers. 1:30pm to 12:00am of hip-hop legends. When DJ Premier is opening the show you know its going to be ape shit. Lots of good performances. Slick Rick rocking purple Tims asking the crowd if they like the colors, Rakim with more swagger on stage than a rhino, KRS with Bumpy Knuckles as his hype man and bringing out Buckshot. Lauryn Hill brought out all of her kids after performing To Zion.
She brought a ton of other people out just because they were hanging out in the wings. Mary J. Blige, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Chris Rock, Jay-Z, John Legend. That was nuts.
Tribe was dope, super live on stage. Wu was crazy and Snoop killed it. Still trying to process what happened on that stage.
The day was pretty rough though. I was standing in the pit for the first six acts with people pressed against me and by the time the seventh act came up I had to get some space.
It was wild.
Long night of flying last night though so I am headed home for some well deserved sleep.
