When I started rapping around 2006, I finally enter the Hip Hop Cafe in 2008. Where I became host of the Freestyle Session at the end of the night every Friday. It turned into meeting and knowing many artists that I know till this day and see. From that came about a hip hop group of individual artists called "Brain Freeze". I wanted to do a night with some of the artists that I had ran into during my time at the hip hop cafe and the owner decided to call that night Brain Freeze. It turned into something and we toured LA. Here are a few pics.
The Art Walk was a major success due to all the numbers that came out. Collaborating with the Up Fest and bringing a stage to the middle of 43rd St. Taking the chance to shout out local businesses and perform his single "Climax".
I also hosted a Poetry tribute to a man named Sunji Ali. Well known in the poetry community and hosted a poetry venue for over 25 years inside of Kaos Network.
