Freeway – “What We Do” Live in Boston (video)

This past weekend at The Geto Boys show local MC Staxx announced he had a special guest in the building and earlier in the night the host said that Freeway was in the building but everyone forgot atleast I did. All of sudden during Staxx set Freeway emerged out of nowhere blessing dude with a track (below) and drove all the from Philly to do it. Then for a little bonus he performed “What We Do”. Check it out.

The Geto Boys Live In Boston 6-29-13 (videos)

The legenday Geto Boys from Houston did their first ever show in Boston last night in their 30 years together. What an amazing show and presence they had, im not sure if it was my fanboy inside me (no homo) but this possibly one of the best shows I’ve ever been. They performed a slew of classics from their catalog but never touched on any solo work. Either way what an incredible show. On video 7 Scarface goes into a acoustic guitar and plays “Wish you Were Here” by Pink Floyd.

Joey BadA$$, Pro Era, Flatbush Zombies, The Underachievers Live In Boston 4-3-13 (video)

Last night I trooped out to a sold out Middle East to Catch Joey BadA$$, Pro Era, The Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers. Joey did his thing and the Pro Era guys were dope, but Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers stole the show, although their sets were short they utilized their time great.Really good show overall I’d seriously check em out on this tour, theyre playing in RI tonight.

Cannibal Ox Reunion Show In Boston (pics/videos)

Last night history was made again… The great Cannibal Ox with their first show in Boston @ The Middle East Upstairs. They performed tracks off their classic album the Cold Vein also alongside with DJ Cip One of Atomz Fam. The Chemistry was still there and the crowd was incredibly hyped, singing a long to every track from The Cold Vein. Only downside…. They didnt do Pigeon or Scream Phoenix (sad face) but they did atleast half the album and killed it. I was incredibly happy to see the duo back also Cip One had some serious juggling skills. If Cannibal Ox is coming near you get out there and support you won’t be disappointed. If they aren’t coming to a spot near you don’t worry I filmed their whole set. I also took a ton of photos click HERE for that. You’ll also find some photos of IRealz and Double AB in there too, and I got videos coming soon of their performances. Peace to Chris Faraone and Leedz.
