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.
On October 21, 2011, RVA HOT SAUCE was introduced to the city of Richmond. The Cheats Movement, Just Plain Sounds, and The Shop brought together some of the hottest talent in RVA for a night of entertainment, diversity, and fun. The RVA HOT SAUCE web series is scheduled to debut in December 2011.
I started this blog in January after seeing a site from a NYC Photographer name Tone. I was just hooked on his site every day. Tone had a video post titled Sway Kids. It was shot outside of Sway in NYC. I had to have watched those episodes a million times. I still watch them. Richmond Kids is my version of Sway Kids. It was shot outside of Strange Matter during Face Melt Friday. Shout out to Tone and shout out to everyone that just gave love. This week has been amazing for the blog. Keep that love going and the RVA effort going. The freestyle is from Holik (Adrian King).
First and foremost, shout to Azrael Onassis. We go back a bit and I appreciate the love he’s always giving the Cheats Movement Blog. With that, shout to OMG, Black Liquid, and Strange Matter. It went down Friday night; true RVA Hip-Hop. It was all positive and all love – SEE ALL MY PHOTOS BY CLICKING HERE. Stay tuned this week for Richmond Kids: Episode 1. A short vid from Face Melt Friday III. Hit me up on twitter and Like the Cheats Movement on Facebook.
