A few weeks ago,,on September 12, a good pal of mine Elliott Yamin came through Pittsburgh and rocked at the Pittsburgh Hard Rock Cafe in Station Square. Yamin was a top 3 finalist on American Idol Season 5 and recorded the hit R&B single “Wait For You.” I met Elliott shortly after Season 5 at the radio station when I was doing nights. Since then we’ve kept in touch and he has been an amazing friend ever since. I especially am so drawn to his voice! So soulful from a non suspecting guy. He’s got that Donny Hatthaway sort of thing.
Here’s a funny story of that day. Elliott called me to let me know that he was in town. I told him that Colby Caillet was in town performing as well. Elliott hit up Colby. Colby asked Elliott to perform “Realize” with him. And a few hours later I caught myself filming this epic and first time event at the Carnegie Music Hall of Homestead!
Also at the end of performing “Wait For You” Elliott shouts me out. Definitely worth checking out below!
Peep the pics and the vids! Thanks to Elliott, Colby, Samantha Brenner, and my dood Roy Martin Smith from the Hard Rock Cafe!

Elliot 1st time in studio with your Boy at 96.1 Kiss Studios!

While I was in Tampa last week i got to hook up with Big K.R.I.T. at the Kennedy. If you didn’t know K.R.I.T. and his crew joined us for the Waken Baken Tour last year. K.R.I.T. and Wiz are some of the leading
“New School” rappers and it’s great to see both of their careers take off! I talk to K.R.I.T about his album and he was excited for his fans. I think it was projected to come out in September but it may come out later than that. K.R.I.T. also expressed that it was important to keep his music genuine. He told me that the label tried to pair him with an R&B singer for a song and he didn’t think that was a good look cause that’s not what he or his fans are use to. Love to see artist stand there ground. Cy-Hi the prince also opened up. Glad to see him show some love to the new upcoming rappers! He even gave Wiz some love too! Enjoy the pics and the Video! Big shout to K.R.I.T., Big Sant, Dutch!
So on Sunday in Tampa I got to rock at OLD DIRTY SUNDAYS. ODS is an “Open Format” party rooted in Funk and Hip Hop, but basically you can rock anything you want to! Very similar to the World Famous “Do Over” Party of the West. If you ever are in the Tampa area on a Sunday this is a must! On top of the music there are artist there selling artwork and doing artwork live. There also were some really talented B-Boys and B-Girls getting that crowd Hype! Thanks to Dj’s Lesage, Casper, Mega, Blenda, and of Course Dj Ku!
So last night was crazy… I don’t remember much… Patron is the devil… It was a damn good time tho. If you are in the Tampa Area on a Saturday, Hyde Park is a must. People go crazy… That is all.. Thanks to Hyde Park, Dj Ku, and Dynasty events. Also FU to Johnny Vegas.
Dj Ma*chino & Ku
