WHY I LOVE RICHMOND TODAY: TEAM SLAPDASH IS ON THE MOVEMENT!

I’m always excited to meet young entrepreneurs in RVA. It doesn’t matter if you work in music – fashion – business – etc. – if you are doing something positive for the city and on your grind – I can appreciate that and, in a many ways, relate. I first worked with Slapdash at the RVA Music Fest: Hip Hop Hooray and it’s been love ever since. It’s one thing to be young and grinding in the hip hop scene – but what I respect about Slapdash is their work ethic promoting local hip hop events.  Historically, RVA has struggled to maintain reoccurring hip hop events. That started to change in 2011 with the growing success of The Rebirth – FaceMelt Friday – and others that I know I’m forgetting (my bad).  “Some” RVA venues (mostly notably  The Camel – S/O to them) have really benefited for the attention that the RVA music is receiving theses days.  That attention is also paying off for Slapdash creators Cain McCoy and Octavion Xcellence. Last weekend’s Slapdash event at the Camel, was not only supported by RVA hip-hop fans but also by some of the most talented hip-hop artist in RVA – (if they were performing or not).  I will post all of The Cheats Movement Photos later this week but, “Why I Love RVA Today” — Team Slapdash.  Below is a small preview of what is to come with my photos of the weekend — keep spreading the word about The Cheats Movement blog  and LIKE THE CHEATS MOVEMENT ON FACEBOOK. RVA we are in this together!
