Back Pack Rap Attack…

duck down

It’s never a good time to leave NYC. There is a party tonight for the launch of NBA 2K9. Open bar and free food. There is some other industry shit on Wednesday night with more free drinks and Thursday night in NYC is the new Saturday night with free drinks and free food in several spots.

NYC is straight banana bread during the week, but on the weekend it becomes the city that never sleeps. This Friday there is some historic shit popping off at the Knitting Factory. Boot Camp Clik will be riding in hard with live performance by the Cocoa B’z and Black Moon. A live band will be backing them up as they perform the classic Hip-Hop albums ‘Da Shinin’ and ‘Enter Da’ Stage’.

‘Enter Da’ Stage’ is such an important record in Hip-Hop history and the Duck Down BCC movement is finally being recognized as one of rap music’s greatest collectives, if not the greatest. Look at their consistent track record and their longevity. BCC just keeps grinding through the underground. Heltah Skeltah’s Sean Price has become the most prominent face of the movement in the last few years but who can deny Smif and Wessun and their impact on rap culture. Boot Camp is Brooklyn to the bone and they represent for the neighborhoods that gentrification still won’t fucks with. Brownsville, Ocean Hill, East New York, Pitkin, Sutter, DuMont, Saratoga, Rockaway, Ralph Ave. Hail Meg!

It sucks that I am going to Barbados for a week today. It doesn’t suck like that, but damn, this will be such a legendary performance that I hate the idea of missing it just because me and my chick caught this sick deal in February. The end of the hurricane season and right before the prime season jumps off is when you can got to the Caribbean for next to nothing. So while I’m chilling on a white sand beach Buckshot Shorty will be ripping down ‘Buck ‘Em Down’ with a live bass player on his side.

I hope some of you hermits come up from your mom’s basements. Don’t be scared. There will be hell’a white hanging out with you. This won’t be like a show at the old NYC nightclub called the Muse back in 1992. You won’t have to tuck in your jewelry or keep a razor blade inside of your cheek. If you are fresh like me you will make sure you represent like it was 1992 though. Put some of your ‘Lo lifestyle wears on and even rock a Jansport of a NorthFace backpack. The underground Hip-Hop will never die. Beats and rhymes never get old.

Someone drop me a line and tell me how ill the show was.

BTW, are y’all hype for Da Incredible Rap Team?

Everything is still Heltah Skeltah.

    You act like BCC doesnt do shows on the regular. I’ve seen Buckshot and Smiff n Wesson this year with Wes Fif at the Social. I know BCC has been to my town at least twice already this year. I didnt catch the other show, but these cats tour HARD.

    Anybody that lives in a even semi populated area may have a show near you. Look out for these cats, beside Heiro and Wu, (and I say beside, because I wouldnt put any particular one over the other) these dudes can shut a show down and leave you with neck cramps for a week. (nullus!)

    But even listening to as much Price as you do, doesnt mean you can call yourself “the god” BXS, LMAO.

    “Hell no hoe, you must think somethins sweet with the god.” LOL.

    This paragraph makes no sense what so ever.

    Lying ass, you aint goin to no barbados, so when you going? This week or in February?

    I call shenanigans. This sheit is why I nominated you for the SDN Tourney, BXS.

    • og bobby j

      not to come to the defense of this hater…but I believe BXS booked this deal in Feb…for this upcoming week as it is the end of hurricane season…

      correct me if Im wrong billy…

      • iLL G

        dawg anyone that reads that sentence should be able to understand that he says he got the tickets in feb to fly out there this week. if u dont get that, u are the dumbest nigga alive and u should just kill yaself (EREAL)

        • EReal

          Hey faggot, I live in FLA, Hurricane Season doesnt end until december, you human brown eye.

          Besides the fact theres a tropical system developing in the carribean RIGHT NOW, douchebag.

          So anyone who actually KNOWS anything about hurricane season in all actuallity would ask the same question.

          Obviously, you dont know shit.

  • giantstepp

    …just never felt either of them. i’d give BCC a listen simply because they fucked with the legendary Tupac Shakur and was in the process of making some moves with him in 95/96…otherwise i’d have my ass on that plane heading to Barbados smiling!

  • bongolock

    oh i’m super hype bout the d.i.r.t. album. i just read a long ass sean p interview and it just fanned the flames.
    i’m gonna leave philly after work to make this show. cuz i doubt this live band thing will happen outside of nyc

    Ereal,
    Buy yourself some salad spoons to hold my nuttsachs.

    Barbados is chill so far. The exchange rate is 2:1 so finally my little bit of U.S. money gets some respect.

    Sheeeeeit, how poor must the Caribbean be if the US dollar is valuable? What do you think the British pound exchange is?

    • EReal

      Bahahahaha,

      You fat ass “dollar big mac” eating 12 year old.

      I should buy some salad tongs for you to use on a diet you fat fuck lookin like an elephant in the sand n shit, pull ya trunks up playa!
