Back on the Block

There’s nothing like having solid partners and thanks to the good people at the DowntownDC BID promotion for CAN I KICK IT? is back on the digital billboard in the heart of Chinatown in downtown Washington, DC (think Time Square in NYC), which is an incredibly big deal considering the billboard’s location and number of people who see it (100’s of thousands per day).

See you Tuesday.

I’m withe banned – Documentary

Last week I was fortunate to get the shout about the screening of Spotify’s first documentary I’m with the banned.

Really liked how they flipped the editing to give it almost like a cinematic music video-feel.

Essentially I’m with the banned is a music initiative to empower artists and fans from different cultures to come together, and to amplify the voices of people and communities that have been silenced.  The documentary focuses on a variety of issues that impact different communities today–from immigration to LGBTQ equality–through artist collaborations, performances and original content.

I’m with the banned chronicles a musical collaboration between six artists from Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Yemen and Iran; the countries incorporated in the proposed travel ban, with six American artists such as Pusha T, Dr. Lonnie Smith, BJ The Chicago Kid, and K.Flay.  And since the artists from the Middle East cannot enter the U.S. they and the American have to record in Toronto.

In addition the complimentary drinks and popcorn at E Street Cinema, where the screening was held in DC, the good people at Spotify saw that it was also only fit to do an after-party (open bar) at a spot downtown featuring artists from the documentary Moh Flow and DC’s own Oddisee.

I’m with the banned will air, in it’s entirety, on VICE this month so stay tuned and for the additional info about the doc click here and to check out the full event recap click Read the rest of this entry
