Sweet Nancy NYC Listening Party / Recap

Whenever we do SHAOLIN JAZZ events in New York, its always love and our Sweet Nancy NYC Listening Party was no different.  And despite us not having done an event in New York in a min, and some rain, the community (as in people walking in not knowing what was even taking place, but intrigued by our SHAOLIN JAZZ sign) in addition to family and friends – showed up making our listening party the kind of experience that we envisioned.

Thank you to Basquiat’s Bottle for hosting and all of your generosity, thank you to all of the artists who exhibited works giving our event that extra layer, much appreciated to everyone who attended, and props to everyone who helped spread the word.

Ghost and co. really stepped things up with Twelve Reasons to Die.  To purchase and learn more click here.

The Source

Got the new issue of The Source which will be complimentary to guests who attend The Classics.  Kudos to Amy and her team for continuing to bang out issue after issue of solid content – no filler. 

When Amy (GM) told me that her mission was to return the magazine to it’s rightful place as “The Bible of Hip-Hop Music, Culture, & Politics,” I thought, well, “that’s way easier said than done,” but if you know Amy then you also know her focus, drive, and passion for executing is damn near unmatched.

I’ve been steady following (purchasing – mind you) the book since she’s taken on her new role and each issue has been impressive.  Each one brings a good balance, content wise, for Hip-Hop’s younger and older generation and is this issue follows suit.  From features such as the piece on Lyor Cohen and Ghostface, to the breakdown on Lil Wayne’s “Young Money” imprint, a mini feature on DC’s Wale, to even a 2 parter on underground (depending on who you talk to) MC Immortal Technique’s burgeoning orphange in Afghanistan – there’s entertainment and education. 

If you’re sleeping wake up because The Source is back…
