September 30, 2009

A couple of weeks ago, we sent out video of Blu and Pharoahe Monch speaking about the upcoming Shafiq Husayn album entitled “Shafiq En’ A-Free-Ka” dropping October 6th on Plug Research. Later that night, an amazing array of musicians came together to take part in a jam session of epic proportions. Featuring Pharoahe Monch, Shafiq Husayn (SA-RA), Om’Mas Keith (SA-RA), Brook D’leau (J Davey), Mark De Clive Lowe, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson (Suite for Ma Dukes), Thundercat, and more, it was definitely a night to remember.

Styles P & Pharoahe Monch @ Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival

June 21, 2009

The Official family was at the annual Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival. Here is some footage of Styles P just shutting the whole show down. I think Matik says it the best. Like everyone was on their tippy-toes just screaming at the top of their lungs. This was like maybe the second best Brooklyn Hip-Hop festival, the first one being the 2nd Festival with Big Daddy Kane. After the jump is a video of Monch doing Simon Says. More videos with Grand Puba, J.Period, Monch, Buckshot, and many others will be up come this monday. Oh yeah they need a better sound man next year, whoever the sound man was this year, seem to like not care about the audio, because everyone was just peaking with their vocals, and I felt it took away from the overall performance of each act.
