Well, San Diego hip hop is off to a great start in 2017. Saturday, January 14th, Music Box SD played host to the Snow tha Product concert, featuring an all-SD-based opener line-up. Snow tha Product throws a great party and her fans know how to “turn up”, especially when prompted by the very commanding master of ceremonies – Snow is definitely full of charisma, a little bit of sharp wit, and a lot of tenacity. Below are some images of the night. Enjoy.
I am bummed that I missed D.Dove and DJ Tramlife’s set, so if you have any images and a few words, I’d love to post both and shout you out!
Unfortunately, I didn’t get a good snap of @theIllNicky, so if someone could send one my way, I’d love it and definitely mention you for the photo credit. Ill Nicky was a high energy, well-polished opener and definitely showed that he’s paid dues and ready to make big moves in 2017.
Main Flow is a phenomenal showman, an OG in hip hop, and great dude to have reppin’ SD. Cincinnati was where he created the masterpiece, Doom, with his brethren in MOOD, which featured both DJ Hi-Tek and Talib Kweli. If you get a chance, do some homework for sure!
1207 from Lemon Grove, most well known for the success of Rob $tone’s “Chill Bill”, was in the building featuring Spooks. Spooks, who is probably the crew’s most technical rapper, the lyricist of the crew, put on a fun set with the help of fellow 1207 member, Malik Burgers.
Snow tha Product put on a phenomenal performance Saturday night and commanded the audience in a way that only few artists can. Snow is an emcee’s, emcee and has the versatility to win over the underground purist as well as the mainstream rap fan.
Peace, Love & Hip Hop,
