Starting out the night with raw energy and an excellent presence Free Lunch Crew came onto the stage delivering both that crew-cut madness & rap finesse. Yanna Ely, Rey Gordo, Rich Lee & Knucky Lame all came and showed out with a decent crowd to spectate which eventually got bigger moments after their 3rd song. Every time we are at a show with these people they always show the Chicago fam love and are always down to network with other dope musicians who travel through MPLS. I encourage all my homies who travel that way to holla at them Free Lunch Crew cats. They are a true cell of black creatives coming up now in the 612! You'd best not sleep! (Each of the members have soundclouds so please check them out and support their movement! Love to you all!.)
The homie originally from Maryland (now in Minnesota) CRASHprez has one of the most craziest stage presences in the Midwest (or wherever he goes for that matter.) and he doesn't plan on stopping there. After introducing himself on stage and drawing a few heads to the front CRASHprez entered the void and took us all into his world of "808 Shadow Bap" that's what I would call it haha. There is one thing that CRASHprez is not stranger to and that's interacting with his crowd WHILE performing. He isn't afraid to jump into the audience and demand their energy in a way that isn't demanding, but necessary. As an artist as well I love when the performers interact with us and ask for our crowd participation! Simply because it makes you feel apart of the experience and not just a fanboy or fangirl. CRASH thank you for rocking out and displaying impressive showmanship.
Honestly didn't even meet this cat until last night through a friend of mines and to keep it a buck-fifty I didn't even know what to expect haha. DJ/FRND is his name and he was listed as one of the special guests on the bill last night. Once queued up with his music DJ Immediately hopped into the barfest and delivered over a malevolently infested production that I couldn't recognize, but was instantly caught in the tangles of its rhythm. After speaking to DJ briefly before the show he seemed like an alright dude to begin with and his music validated. Though when I asked him for the title of the first song he did he responded with "Still a working title." But I told him I'll name it "Untitled FRND" hahah (was a joke, but would be a dope title! Take it man!!). DJ all in all was honestly one of the chillest dudes I met in MPLS (no shade to my people!) Keep spreading that dope rap music and continue to grow my dude!
