More summer Jams – More pics ! I’ve never been to St. Louis before and I still kinda never have because we didn’t leave the venue all day and night… Tear… these are the pitfalls of tour sometimes.  But the show is sick.. Waka, Keri Hilson, and Yo Gotti performed as well as a special visit from NELLY.  Enjoy the pics!  Thanks to Jade for flicking some of the shots from the show!

Bonnaroo 6/11/11

I’ve always heard about it. Every year someone asks me “Are you going to Bonnaroo?” They ask like its something that I missing out on and I should  plan my year around it. Lol. Yes, I was curious about Bonnaroo. And this year not only do I go, I perform. An estimated 80,000 people were in attendance during Bonnaroo and WIz and the gang got to rock on the main stage on Saturday NIght. Playing before the Black Keys and Eminen, I’m guessing about 40-50,000 people checked our performance out. I love these crowds cause they are ready to party. Not to mention the are pretty f*cked up. Amazing crowd. Amazing energy!  Big shout to Kellee Maize another artist from PGH and a close friend (we were co-host on our college radio station) who won an online voting contest to get to rock at Bonnaroo! Big shout out to the whole NAKTURNAL team. DJ Huggy! Great to see the burgh reppin’ at such prestigious event!

Enjoy the pics as always there is a link to the photo gallery below! I also posted a video of Kellee Maize performing. For more on her Google “Female Rapper”

KS 107.5 Summer Jam 06/9/11

The MIle HIgh CIty WIth WIz Khalifa. It has a nice ring to it. Add another summer to Jam from a Great Station KS 107.5 in Denver, Colorado. This past friday we rocked it.  A great Station with some great talent and fans who went crazy over a amazing Hip Hop Line-Up: WIz, Chris Brown, Pitbull, Lupe FIasco, LLoyd Banks, Jeremih Bobby Brankins and a special guest appearance by Mac Miller! This packed punch sure got the crowd ready for Wiz. The crowd exploded when WIz took the stage. Be sure to check out my Photo Gallery and my video of Chris Brown doing a little “Kush” and “Dougie” Intro before performing “She Ain’t You.” I also found a couple vids posted of Wiz and our performance! Enjoy

 

Shout to My DUde DJ Sabotage, Dj Chonz, and John E. Kage!!! Also Big Shout to Pitbull’s DJ Big Syphe!!!

Hot 97 Summer Jam

June 11, 2011 bonics

Well this show was bananas… Again I can paint a picture of how incredible it is to play this show, But I’ll keep it simple.  It’s an honor and another notch on the hip hop belt to play this world famous show.  Hot 97 which is a legendary Hip Hop station in New York throws Summer Jam every year showcasing the years Hip Hop super stars.  This year we got to share the stage with artist like Lil’ Wayne / Cash Money, Fabolous, Rick Ross and the Maybach Music Fam, & Dipset to name a few.  It Wiz’s first time to play this epic show and it feels good that his vision has come to life and put us in New Meadowlands Stadium to rock for over 50,000 people!  ” Never thought that hip hop could take it this far…”

I even reunited with “T-Storm” Creative Services Director of Hot 97.  T-Storm also is a mixer and comedian.  Watch the video below to find out how we know each other.  He even got a little throw back story that you must watch. Enjoy some of the shots I took as well.  Happy that we could rock something this magnificent.  Thank you Hot97!!

Dj Bee x Jay-Ski – “Bad Meaning Good”

June 7, 2011 bonics

 

 

After the Roots Picnic the lovely Miss JAG set up an Unofficial Roots Picnic after party ft. Mac Miller’s DJ Clockwork, Skratch Makanik vets DJs Bee and Jay-Ski, & SMC new comer ME! It was a long day after the Picnic but the party continue at Grey’s Social. On top of a four turntable set up we got to rock with some of Philly’s Best Musicians! It was a great night of music, dancing, and drinks…I got some great footage of Bee and Jay-Ski going at it with the Mardi Gras/Peter Piper beat. I call it
“Bad Meaning Good.” I must say it is an honor to rock the tables with such well respected DJ’s.  I grew up listening to Jay-Ski on the radio.  And seeing Bee makes you really appreciate the art of turntablism.  I hope to be on there level one day. I’m so humbled to play with such great talent.

Roots Picnic..  The Legendary Roots Crew… Not to mention the city that I was born in and really built my music foundation. I then was introduced to DJing when i went to college at University of Pittsburgh.  If I were to truly explain what this show means to me it would take it’s own website.  First of all I was the biggest Roots fan growing up.  My boy Eric Carp during Sophomore year gave me “Do You Want More” (The Roots 2nd album) on our school bus on the way to high school.  I was hooked…. The Jazz.. The Funk… The Soul… The Rap… I was hooked… I could hum every note on Essaywhuman?!!!??! for you  on that album.  That was the album that did it for me.  That was Hip Hop to me.

Fast Forward… 15 years later… 12 years of Djing… and I get to play The G_d Damn Roots Picnic.  I’ll let the moment speak for its self… Check out my pics and vids Below… Oh let me mention that during our set The Young Gunz, Freeway, and Beanie Sigel came out at rocked the mic.  Philly was alive!  The crowd showed us love and the rest is history!

Peace to my dear friends and family who came out to see me rock.  Christine, Christopher, Tori, Shelby, Gita, Jeannie, Poli, Kenny, Sara, Dj Royale, Kathleen, Christine H., Leslie, Katie B, Tony my neighbor and all the new friends I made! – Thank you

Also big big big up to my Skratch Makanik Family – Dj BEE and JAY-Ski (you get your own post) and of course the Lovely Jennifer George…  Wish i took more pics but I enjoyed the moment!

Wow.. What a weekend.. 3 Great shows!  Hot 106 Hot Nights,  Roots Picnic, & Hot 97 Summer Jam.  The show in Rhode Island was a nice way to warm up the weekend.  We got to share the stage with some big artist with this one.  Jeremiah, Fabolous, Lloyd Banks, and Lupe Fiasco were some of the names to bless the stage.  Wiz also performed “Oh My” with Fabolous.  Check out my video of the performance below.  We are doing a bunch of the Summer Jam type shows this year.  Its really cool to see an even like this because for some reason PGH doesn’t have a Summer Jam or anything like that.  On another note its also great meeting other DJ’s on the road.  I met the legendary Dj Four Five! He’s been around since the late 80’s he actually did the scratches on EPMD’s classic “You Gots to Chill” on Strickly Business.  Four Five is a pioneer in the DJ game! Big shout out to him! Follow him on twitter @Dj4our5ive

I’m a few days late on this post. But better late then never! We are on our way to do a quick little run this weekend but I had to mention our Memorial day fun last weekend in Illinois!  We went to M.O.E. ‘s Summer Camp Festival and shut it down.  I don’t mean to stereo type this shit but this is definitely a festival for hippies. haha.. I mean music lover of course.  Everything is going on, dancing, drugs, drinking, hula hooping.  What ever your thinking it’s probably happened at Summer Camp!  It’s great to play for an audience like this.  I really feel they are here for the music and not to mention all the weed songs too! hahah… Below are pics and a nice little video of us performing “In the Cut” Look at all the smoke!
