Thank you LA! 30 years of celebrating Style Wars KCRW style complete with the assistance of Mear One, Risk One, Dcypher, Hit+Run, the staff at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science and Pam/Taryn/Brian at the events dept at the station! Big thanks to Mear who went beyond the call of duty in making this as authentic as possible! Big love to The Next Ones for the b boying. It was an honor to discuss the film with the co-director Henry Chalfant who broke down the science and of creating such a film. SKEEM One was also in the house talking about how his views on graff have not changed much. He has one of the most memorable scenes in the movie as well as quotables. Catherine Keener was in the house as well and discussed the work involved in the restoration of the doc. She mentioned the Beastie Boys were hard at work giving a hand to the doc. I had a blast observing LA come together on such a wonderful Summer day! Big thanks to everyone again!
Best 4th of July party ever! Big love to all the folks who came out to Grand Park’s very 1st of July Party! The weather was on point and so was the energy. I started off the day with some soul vibes w/ some Stevie edits and brasilian breaks then Get Lit hit the stage showcasing some poetry. These were LAUSD high schoolers dropping knowledge on the crowd. Ethio Cali and Jungle Fire followed with some world flavor and the crowd began to build and build. During my breaks I ventured through the crowd with my camera and took some great shots of the water fountain and all the kiddos running around. It was back to the turntables and the crowd began to move a little more and I just had to drop Cube’s “Today Was A Good Day” somewhere in my next set followed by some Mana which really got a great reception pre La Santa Cecilia! LSC took it home and then it was time to intro Grand Park director Lucas Rivera and Board of Supervisor Gloria Molina who thanked the crowd then came the pyro! Whoop! Then the ride home was an adventure too!
