|Rock The Bells 2009|
(Click on the album above to peep the pictures)
To make a long story short, my brethren Mr. En?gma and I were invited back stage to the Rock the Bells concert event at Jones Beach Theater. Much respect and appreciation to his older brother, DJ Dummy, for allowing us to enjoy the concert in the fashion we did. Highlights of my day were being in the same area as artists such as Truck North, Naledge from Kidz in the Hall, getting to meet the Legendary Pete Rock and watch in amazement as my friend sat and talked to the likes of Common, Talib, and Pete in a fashion many would probably sacrifice a limb for.
I attempted to be as unnoticeable as possible, trying not to take super in-your-face pictures or anything that i felt would have really annoyed an artist trying to relax backstage - one of the few places you are allowed to just chill before performing. Also much respect to Elzhi of Slum Village. I was walking passed him and couldn't walk by without letting him know that i think hes one of the dopest lyricists walking the planet. The guy is a super nice and humble dude, and the stage was so loud i just exchanged brief words with him, in which he informed me of the new SV album dropping this Fall.
Other highlights included the Nas, Damian Marley set with special guests AZ, Pete Rock, and The LOX coming on to rip it for a few tracks.
