Cham is on a roll with the pum pum joints… The maddest part of this tune is DAVE “PENTHOUSE/MADHOUSE” KELLY produced another beast of a riddim.
My bredren Jah Warrior Shelter Hi-Fi (SF,CA) dropped this fresh little video/mix promo for Gappy Ranks’ new EP “Cookies” which is dropping Feb. 24th, mixed by DJ I-VIER. Apparently when Gappy was out on the West Coast he fell in love a strain of Kush called Cookies. Big Up Bay Area Family!
Gappy Ranks is returning to San Diego March 3rd at Soundwave, and Tickets are available HERE!
Speaking of Bay Area…
The story is loosely based on the Legend of EPIC BEARD MAN

Cros 1 has been putting on the internationally renowned Freestyle Sessions. He got write ups on Wikipedia and shit:
“Freestyle Session was founded in 1997 by graffiti writer and DJ Chris “Cros1″ Wright in California. It is the largest breaking competition based in the United States. The main competitive event is for b-boy crews, but there are also popping and locking competitions for solo competitors.” Hip-Hop Dance
Happy Bornday Robert Nesta Marley!
Those who are from San Diego, know about the biggest annual Reggae concert in town. The Bob Marley Festival. Of course these days it’s known as the “Tribute to the Legends” festival or concert or whatever. To me it will always be Bob Marley Fest. Due to legal issues concerning Bob Marley’s estate, the yearly festival had to change it’s name. Which is funny to me because to some, including myself, Bob Marley is important like MLK. Yet you won’t get a lawsuit from the Martin Luther King Jr. estate if you want to throw a tribute show. To each their own, but I can also see why it makes sense to pay tribute to all the Legends of Reggae that have passed on.
The Fest has become a two-day affair starting this year, and is moving from it’s home at the Sports Arena to the Broadway Pier in downtown SD. Don Carlos, Yellowman, Johnny Osbourne, Jr. Reid just to name a few. Wicked line-up. To see the full line up click HERE
We are throwing an after party, Saturday Feb. 18th with some of the top Reggae Sound Systems from San Diego. Destiny Roots, Shotta Crew, TRC, DJ APR , and Tribe of Kings. The idea is to bring more unity between the sounds in San Diego, because it seems we don’t come together as much, thus leaving the Reggae community a bit fractured. One step forward we say.
