Event : Day of the Dead
Organizer: Pure Art Entertainment
Date/Location: Tuesday October 29, 2019 at The Go Lounge
Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,
Today I will be sharing a write up about the event I had the opportunity to be a part of thanks to Fade Green and Fino who run Pure Art Entertainment. When they told me they were throwing a Halloween Event and if I wanted to be a part of it, I was honored and hyped! The event took place on Tuesday Oct. 29, 2019 at The Go Lounge. The event consisted of beat sets, live performances from dope local emcees, food vendors and even art/clothing vendors. I helped a bit to set up the spooky decorations to give it the Halloween atmosphere. From the beginning of the night to the end I felt the positive energy!
There was an open mic at the beginning the night where any emcee could get on the mic and rap over the producers beat sets. Poser the homie and local emcee rocked the mic a few times. Some of the Producers rocking the beat sets were Rari Komai, Admiral Atlas (played his bass too!), Dayfade, Kendall Carter and Raaw.Xney! For performances we got the no fucks given and energetic emcee who is also the homie Legion X! If you really want to get the crowd riled up and moving he is the dude for that! His stage presence is like no other! He is in full costume from the face paint to his man made strobe light stage box. It is one of those performances that you have to see live and it cannot be explained only felt!
My spooky sis Yazi also performed and killed it with her metaphysical rhymes and rapid flow! Her and Legion X also performed a song together and rocked their individual glow in the dark masks! The man of the hour Fade Green also performed a few songs as well! He is one of my favorite performers he has so much versatility! Not only can he rap, but he also has a dope singing voice! Fade is a true performer it is mesmerizing see him perform he also got moves! He is the embodiment of a true artist!
We were not only celebrating Halloween and Day of the Dead that night, but also Fino’s birthday! Fino’s homie Nomadic (Darian) made him a cookies and cream cannabis infuse ice cream cake! It was dope night with amazing people who happen to be talented artists and creatives! San Diego is full of talent and events like these are needed to showcase their skills. Events like these allow people to escape their daily routines, enjoy a night filled with positivity and just vibe out to dope music! I am glad I was a part of this! I hope more events like this will continue to happen!
This is dope for the community as well since artists get to chill with their supporters that are not necessarily their peers, but just people who love music and can become potential lifetime fans! Thank you Pure Art Entertainment for what you are doing for the Hip Hop scene and for the music scene overall!
