Kendrick Lamar FREESTYLE On SHADE 45

With a long list of new and up-and-coming Hip Hop artists spewing out of the wood-works, Kendrick Lamar holds it down on this exclusive (even though its on youtube, but not on his fan page) freestyle on SiriusXM Shade45. Tony Touch opened up with a lill "Big Tigger In the Basement" freestyle...I'm not hatin...But your boy Kendrick droped a dope freestyle for the airwaves and held his ground as an emcee.

Now do you think Kendrick is the next best thing coming out of the West Coast? Well leave a comment below and let me know who's the next emcee to resurrect the west. If it ain't the Game crying to do it, then who will?

Rock The Bells In the Bay Area!!!

"Rock The Bells 2012 (in Montainview, Cali) was one of my best Hip Hop festivals ever!!" -DJ OHH!

Looking back on what an incredible-well put together festival with a buffet of Hip Hop performances from the legendary naughty By Nature,Method Man and Redman, Prodigy and future artists such as J Cole, Yelawolf, Dom Kennedy just to name a few. There's something to be said about how the Hip Hop culture can be wide-spread for all people no matter what our differences. Here I was in the midst of the #BayArea screening what they call Hip Hop, no matter if the artist was regional or recognized world-wide. The crowd loved it, even though hypothetically 95% of the performers shouted out "bay area" to get the crowd's buy-in.

Big-ups to Rock The Bells and Guerilla Union for putting on a very safe and "smoked-out" event. In Cali, we trust...LOL.A huge shout-out to everyone that came out from the bay, the luv was definitely there. And of course a big standing ovation shout out to all the artists that came out and performed. I know its not hard to come out to Cali for good weather and "Girl Scout Cookies", ya dig lol......
