This Friday night,June 20th, in the year 2014, Jackson will be in for a treat as the third installment of native musician, 5th Child’s event The Basement. The Hip-Hop showcase live performances from emcees Kamikaze, Skipp Coon, and Dolla Black; producers Ace Of Spades, Donche, and Loki; as well DJ sets from Sean Mac, DJ Ron, and DJ Young Venom. On top of all that talent there will also be local graffiti artists on scene painting the building, YES painting the building.
The spot is The Corner located at 303 North Farish St. in Jackson, MS. The show starts promptly at 10pm and is over when it’s over. It is a 21 and over event so make sure you bring your identification. Tickets are $10, which is basically $1 per performer. That’s a crazy ratio, you would be foolish not to show up. It is fitting that the show is happening in Jackson’s historic Farish District, a place which was once the music hub in the capital city. The building Trumpet Records was housed in is located right next door to The Corner venue. Trumpet was the early home to Sonny Boy Williamson, Little Milton, Elmore James, and a host of other influential musicians.
If you had the opportunity to attend one of the previous Basement installments then you already know that you are in for a treat. If you have not had the chance to make it to one of the other events, then check some of the video links below for an idea of the awesomeness that goes on. This is vital for the Hip-Hop community in the city of Jackson as well as the state of Mississippi. The unity shown by the fans and the artists prove that the people want the movement. This weekend is stacked full of things to do as Friday night we will have The Basement, Saturday will be the second New Jacks Show (another 5th Child creation), and Sunday will be SippHop’s Super Showcase 12 open mic and beat battle. It is nice to see people gathering and enjoying the events. Supporting the artists and contributing the grass root movement happening in Mississippi, the birthplace of America’s music.
I do not make a lot of assurances in life, but I guarantee that if you make it out to The Basement Vol 3 on June 20th you will enjoy yourself. Come and get your fix of all things Hip-Hop related.

Last night, Snoop Dogg made a pit stop by Hal and Mal’s in Jackson on his way back from the All-Star weekend in New Orleans. I was apprehensive about checking out the show for various reasons. That was until they announced that 5th Child / DJ Young Venom / Southern Comfort would be opening up the show. 5th Child (Vintage Noize) took full advantage of the opportunity to open up for a superstar. Assisted by James Crow and Violator All-Star DJ Young Venom on the tables, 5th set the bar high for the night. As people were pouring in they were treated to a great performance with incredible energy. The crowd’s reaction let’s everyone know what they thought. They didn’t even drop 5th Child when he dove from the stage into the crowd. One thing was made certain last night, if you have a hip-hop show in Jackson this guy should be on your bill, period.
To get the word out about next weeks THE 90s PARTY PART DEUX, DJ Jonasty has put together a little mix of songs from, you guessed it, the 90s. a time when things were much simpler. A time of Starter jackets, Cross Colours, overalls, Polo Sport, and Timberlands. A time when DJs could play the music they wanted without being bothered by what the “radio” was playing. So next week if you’re in the Jackson area come out and support DJ Young Venom and DJ Jonasty as they spin tracks that some of you were probably not even old enough to remember.
DJs Young Venom (Violator All-Star DJs) & Jonasty (Core DJs) present to you the good people of Jackson, MS and surrounding cities, The 90’s Party Part Deux.

Party starts at 9:00 and won’t stop until you hear this, that’s not official I’m just sayin’. Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door and 90s attire is strongly suggested.
