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.

You would be hard pressed to find another state in the republic that is as musically sound as Mississippi. The birthplace of America’s music has produced some undeniable talent. The city of Jackson alone is home to more than a few capable emcees. Per capita I would put the Jack against any other city in the category, the only challenge would probably come from Detroit. Which is another debate all together.
Enter Silas, an up and coming rapper/trumpeter from the Fondren area of Jackson, and no that is not a typo, I said trumpeter. Rap Revolt is Silas’ introduction to a lot of people, and it is a hellova first impression. He runs the gambit when it comes to styles. He tackles every type of sound you could imagine to hear and he does it with style and grace. He effortlessly bounces between tracks, flowing fluidly over tracks pieced together masterfully. If this is his rapping resume, then he’s getting the job. He breaks down a lot on “For The Fans”, explaining what separates Jackson from cities like Detroit, San Francisco, Philly, and New York and why the city does not get the shine it should in the rap game. Then on tracks like “Warm Up Mix” featuring Core DJ Jonasty Silas firmly places his Hip-Hop flag on the steps of the Capital and dares rappers to step up. “Red Velvet Cake” is his stab at the often used “Pound Cake” beat, showing that he can spit over hit tracks just as well as the originals. Then he jumps on Biggie’s “Everday Struggle” and “Shook Ones II” by Mobb Deep, showing his understanding of rap history. Like I said this is one heck of a resume. You do not have to listen to me though, download it for free below and listen for yourself.
Then come back and tell me I was right, cause I am. Peace

I pray that your year is off to a great and productive start. I’ve been working on new music non-stop myself, mostly features and production with a few new original joints here and there. I’ve taken this time since the last album 5th Child,
which came out last May, to experiment with different types of sounds that you all haven’t exactly heard from me before. You know how I seldom do mixtapes with stuff over other people’s beats? Well this time I’m giving you a 9-track…uhh… mixbum….altape… whatever you wanna call it, lol. It’s called In the Meantime…
and is available for the lofty price of FREE DOWNLOAD. It’s quite dope and has some originals as well as my interpretations of some of my favorite songs from some great artists including Mobb Deep, The Weeknd, Jay-Z & Kanye West, and even U2! Thanks as always for your continued support. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed making this music. Just click this link to get the free download and be sure to send your feedback: http://5thchildmusic.bandcamp.com/album/in-the-meantime
