4.20 AT THE NATIONAL [BLACK LIQUID, OMG, DOE THE PAPER BOY, TOX SICK]
4.20 may not be a “National Holiday” but it is celebrated by many nonetheless. My dude Black Liq brought a deep line-up to The National for a hip hop 4.20 celebration. Liq has been fairly quiet so far in 2012 but he let me know that he is not taking any time off and new material is getting done. Also, on the bill was Doe The Paper Boy. Doe continues to impress in 2012, his new music is on point, his new videos are some of the best I’ve seen out, and Friday he entered the stage on a chrome beach cruise bike – SWAG. Tox Sick came straight from the hospital (no really – he has a hand injury) and did his thing on stage. Onassis Music Group (O.M.G.) really shut it down Friday night. Paul Pace (O.MG.) is my man – he knows that I give him a hard time (a very hard time) about some of the internal workings of running a label (something I know nothing about and he does daily) – but he had the squad hitting on all levels Friday night and turned out a performance that could be a major move forward. Photo of the night had to come from The Honorable Sleaze – who did double duty as performer and host for the evening. DJ King James held it down (as always) all night – always check out what he is doing.
