Earlier in the third quarter “controversy” was the name of the game. MC’s from Denver were releasing freestyles left and right that encompassed what they deemed to be controversial content. We talked with Lil Bad, the rapper who started it all with a 32 bar freestyle, and he let us know there would be a mixtape of the best tracks for compilation. Last night at “Over There Off Hampden,” for DJ Ktone’s “Toned Out Tuesdays” hip-hop night, the release party went down.
First of all, only DJ Ktone is going to get a roomful of people to party like it’s Friday on a Tuesday. The only focus was the music last night. The dance floor was full, MC’s were making their way through the venue, giving props to each other, nodding their heads to the music and generally being merry. There were different factions, crews and artists in the building and it was all mutual respect.
