“Kool Keith — the oddball rapper and co-founder of Ultramagnetic MCs who also goes by Dr. Octagon and Black Elvis — brings his abtract kook and insanely oversexed lyrics to Reggies alongside a spread of local artists and DJs, including notables Kid Static (sans Yea Big) and Phillip Morris. Eccentricities aside, Kool Keith remains a cult-rap icon, not to mention the self-proclaimed inventor of horrorcore (see: weaker upstart division, OFWGKTA), and it would be a shame for any hip-hop head to miss out on this.” – Flavorpill

I’ve been throwing this event with 3D visuals for a couple times with Kid Infinity. I do animation, promotion, logistics, labor, etc. etc. etc. Its been going really well and we’ve been getting alot of attention from it as far as press and giant musical acts interested in the technology. Here is some video from the last show that hit the web. The sound is shit, so you might want to just hit the mute button and watch the graphics.
Our friends over at Veoba celebrated the coming out of their new site with a bash at Beauty Bar in Chicago. Played by Jokers of the Scene, Acid Girls, Necrocomicon, and Just Desserts, the thing was popping all night. Talking to people sitting in beauty parlor chairs, getting sweaty as hell on the dancefloor, disco, booze, photos and people getting pedicures. At the end it got popping again when some other jokers lit off some fireworks outside. After that we hit up Five Star to afterparty with the massive amount of dirty girls over there. Good times. And to think I just went in there to play some pool.
Bigups to the fam at Veoba, Just Desserts, Kid Color, Willy Joy, and Finger on the Pulse for that awesome launch party last Wednesday. Nick Brazinsky over at WhoIsNickB.com shot this sick edit of the performance.
The background music is a little taste of the 7″ coming out from yours truly and Hood Internet.
We played Pitchfork. It was fun as hell. In the midst of band turmoil and dirty rumors, The Mae Shi still put on a helluva show. Songs in the clip:
The Mae Shi – Body
YB+KS & The Mae Shi – Party Steady
YB+KS & The Mae Shi – Run To The Facts
You know we like to keep it light and fresh around here. So when Jacob Safari hit me up on some “you wanna get on this track.” I was like “Yes.” Free summer jam from us to you. Wallpaper, the men behind Booty Tweet Is The New Booty Call and a raucously controversial 99 Problems remix collab with Jacob Safari of Mae Shi fame, and yours truly.
YB+KS’ brand new album “The Future’s Looking Grim” is hot off the trucks. We just got it in our hands and want to give the fans the opportunity to pick it up before it leaves for the stores. For the next two weeks, we’re letting you guys buy it directly from us pre-retail on our myspace page. Pick it up now or you have to wait until June. JUNE! That’s a long ways away. I mean you could just get it digitally but ITS NOT THE SAME!
