Mission Creek Round-Up: Day 1

‘…The next sounds to come bursting forth from the fest were from Chicago hip-hop duo, Kid Static and Yea Big. And like Cartright, they found themselves in a venue that didn’t fit their normal aesthetic: The Englert Theatre (Yacht Club or The Picador would have been much more their speed). The Englert was at capacity with a crowd it wasn’t accustomed to—the night’s headliner might have been one of the only AARP card-holders—who of course weren’t there for the exuberant duo from the Windy City. However, like any great opener, Yea Big and Kid Static made the best of it and sold it hard. As an MC, Static is a comedian, as though he’s always rapping against some sucka-ass MC in his head with the next playful jab always aimed and ready to fire. As a hype man and producer, Yea Big is something else. Clad in short, very short, gym shorts, a t-shirt, tube stocks, and head band, Yea Big jogged around stage and flopped and faked his way through some dance moves. The boys kept the crowd excited and distracted, and even joined in towards the end of their set when all the audience wanted was “Wu-Tang, Wu-Tang, Wu-Tang”…’

“…As was expected, Bowerbirds brought the house down. A little more surprising was Kid Static’s encore at the Yacht Club.Static’s set was short, to say the least. But the two tracks the 2nd City MC blew threw were more than sufficient to provide the first legitimate surprise for the young festival. It was the most united the crowd go that night. While other MCs on the bill were on, only Kid Static brought most of them up to the stage and away from the bar.”
