Growing up in the 90’s, hip-hop was the soundtrack to my upbringing. Grunge was a phase, but hip-hop was forever. To this day, I still listen to The Pharcyde, a group who for my money, made two of the best rap albums of all-time. It was to my amazement that in 2011, I found out my favorite member of the aforementioned group, Slimkid3, lived in the Rose City! He has since blessed our program 4 times: letting me be his hype-man on classic tracks, enjoying multiple dance offs, and being the first contestant on our popular hip-hop quiz game “RAPPER/NOT RAPPER”
I’m stoked to have him back on the show for his fifth appearance JUNE 23 at Dante’s, once again performing a pair of tunes backed by my house-band “THEM! THE BAND!” this time presenting tracks from his new collaborative album with Jurassic 5‘s DJ-Nu-Mark! (one of the tracks he’ll be performing is below) These tracks are such fire, you’re not going to wanna miss Tre killing it with our live backing band!
We also have the Devil’s Point Stripperaoke Contest winner Phillip Jackson joining us, dressed AND singing as Meat Loaf! Plus our own announcer/producer Rob Ems AKA The Free Throw Guy will be doing an interview outside Dante’s to discuss his recent election to Chairman of the Raleigh Water District while being soaked by squirt guns.
