    Lowkey has a gig in Belfast in May as part that arts festival on this year (forget the date) and a new Album out next month.

    Should be a good gig.

    Steep, but Bronson always entertains. I'm on a stag that week, don't think I'll get to this

    Bronson is great live, it'll be interesting to see who he is touring with. Last time it was Alchemist and Mayhem Lauren I think....Big Body couldn't get into the country.

    Was at Gods Of Rap last night.


    A bit underwhelming. For starters, the sound in the 3 Arena was atrocious. I was standing by the engineers desk (this is generally where you will have the best sound at a gig) but the engineers where just looking at their phones the whole time rather than trying to sort out the sound...well, an exaggeration, but anytime I looked their way they were not paying attention.



    I missed the start of De La Soul, but they only performed 4 songs I believe. I arrived in before the last song which was Me Myself & I.

    There was lots of talking and I don't think they performed the whole song.



    Premo was doing his usual thing of playing 10 seconds of a song, then to the next one. He was also doing his thing of playing a sample he used in a song and then leading into his song with the sample. The crowd didn't have a clue what he was doing from what I can tell.
    Premo was also getting flustered and not prepared and there was alot of dead air when he was searching for stuff to play.
    When he did get songs played, he was playing classics though...although, just a snippet of the song.


    Here is the next thing, it was Public Enemy Radio that was playing last night, which is a line up of Chuck D, some other MC, DJ Lord and the S1W.
    The S1W are security/dancers.

    It was great to hear Chuck in person delivering some of his classic lines in his booming voice. But the lack of Flavour Flav in songs hurt the performance. Early PE songs are very noisy, but due to the poor sound in the arena, it sounded horrible. I found myself listening to the lyrics to figure out what song was being played.

    DJ Lord done a great little routine as well on the turntables.
    The last couple of songs were great though, He Got Game was a highlight along with Fight The Power.


    Premo done his thing again between, fairly un prepared again.


    Then the Wu came out....well, some of the Wu came out. RZA, Rae, Ghost, GZA and Deck. They started performing bits of 36 Chambers. As they were going through the tracks, U-God and Masta Killa did join also. Cappadonna and Young Dirty Bastard also took the stage.
    No Method Man.


    They rolled through 36 Chambers, Young Dirty filling in for the Old Dirty verses. Sound was an issue still.
    But the main problem was the lackluster effort from Ghost, Rae, GZA and Deck. They looked like they were just waiting for the cash to hit their bank accounts.....Deck did get into it more as the gig went on.
    RZA was great, kept the performance rolling on and trying to get the crowd going although dressed like Janet Jackson.
    Young Dirty was the highlight, he came with energy and an eagerness to perform. He even had a few wardrobe changes though the gig and ended up in the crowd at one stage.
    U-God also did put in a bit of effort and livened things up when he took centre stage for his verses.

    The highlight was Cappadonna doing the Winter Warz verse.

    Possible the worst sound of any gig I've ever been at.

    Such a lack of gigs this summer. I'm a guy in his early 30's looking for some old classics or great new artists and literally nothing to look look forward to hip hop gig wise.
    Hip Hop has fallen so much.

    Any new acts that are touring this part of the world are playing Longitude, really.

    No idea, ended up not going. But seen some clips of Jeru performing and he looks alot more lively than he did any other times I've seen him.
    Big Shug only has like 2 songs worth seeing, and I've seen him do them years ago when he was alot younger.
    I would have liked to see Group Home, big fan of Livin Proof.

    Looks like there was a decent crowd there too.

    Done some digging and found this:


    https://www.hotpress.com/music/gangstarr-new-album-dublin-show-2685109


    That was 2003, pretty sure Big Shug was there and there were some other Gang Starr Foundation people as well. I must ask the lads see if they remember.
