Frequency comes through with another certified dope event at Club Mighty this weekend.
While hip-hop heads know Sean Price's legacy as a founding member of Duck Down/Boot Camp/Heltah Skeltah in the early-90s (extra points for anyone who remembers this), and his reinvention and strongarming of the rap game in the late 2000s, some names on the bill might not be as familiar. But if previous concerts by Black Milk and the Beat Junkies haven't made it apparent, Frequency is a brand that you can trust.
should better be up on Moe Green. The young homey from Vallejo has been going for the kill since the release of his Rocky Maivia: Non Title Match, quickly establishing himself as one of the Bay's sharpest lyricists and live entertainers.
Danny Brown first stepped on most folks' radar on Dilla's posthumous Jay Stay Paid on "Dilla Bot vs. The Hybrid," leaving a mark with his ridiculous lyrics and flow. He's been compared to ODB for his absurd lyrics, hilarious punchlines ("I'm a pirate with the pyrex / might fuck a bitch raw, Magic ain't die yet") and sometimes odd delivery. Obviously, we fucks with the dude.
Last but not least is Quelle Life of Crown Nation (not to be confused with the other Qwel). He and partner Denmark Vessey dropped the highly slept-on Slut Bag Edition late last year (which we were supposed to review; our sincerest apologies, Denmark). Quelle's since dropped his solo project, Blue Mondays. In Detroit tradition, Quelle produces and spits raw and witty gems with a Golden Era gleam. He's def one to look out for.
