EPMD @ B.B. King’s


Yessir. I wasn’t missing this no way no how.

Me and my boy got there about 5 minutes past the time the doors were supposed to open at 11:00 and the line was halfway down the block. After standing out there for something like 45 minutes, the line started moving and we got inside relatively quickly. We’d been there for like 5 minutes when a quick little brawl broke out right next to us. Mr. Cee warmed up the room with a string of NY staples and eventually brought out Keith Murray. Keith tore it down like nobodys business, his energy is crazy and he brought it all on stage with him last night.

After a couple of false starts EPMD finally took the stage at like quarter to 2:00 or some ridiculous shit. By then I was feeling nice and I was amped up off the Keith performance, so I wasn’t even mad. They launched right into their classics in pretty much the same sequence as they appear on the Greatest Hits joint I’ve been riding around to all week in anticipation of this show: It’s My Thing, You Gots To Chill, Strictly Business. They were straight up EPMD, decked out in all black and controlling the stage like they never broke up. Good shit.

After maybe 5 or 6 songs, they brought out none other than Das EFX, which caused the entire venue to erupt as you can probably imagine it would. They did They Want Efx and Mic Checka and surprised the shit out of me by remembering all of their lyrics. After they were done Erick and Parrish took back over and rocked some of their second generation of hits. They also both spit a couple of brand new freestyles that were pretty hot.

You have to understand that alot of this shit is foggy to me because I was drunk and enjoying myself and not really worrying about relaying this shit on a blog the next day. So, at some point my boy Reggie Noble takes the stage and does what he does. He did Tonight’s Da Night and Time 4 Sum Aksion and topped it off with this fucking crazy stage dive before jumping back on stage and walking off somewhat abruptly. Did I mention Keith jumped in the crowd a couple of times?

At some point they let DJ Scratch rock on the turntables, which was something I was looking forward to, and he absolutely killed it. Erick and Parrish eventually closed out the official part of the show with Headbanger which the crowd had been screaming for all night. Redman held it down with them and tore the whole building down when he spit his verse. At that point Red and Keith started doing Def Squad Delight, and a bunch of people started leaving thinking the show was over. I had actually started walking to the door too, but I turned back. Those people who left should kill themselves, because they missed a crazy Redman freestyle plus a couple of songs.

(Please excuse the hastiness of this rundown, I originally planned on just rattling off the highlights next to bullet points, but I decided to show some initiative.)

    for the jay concert

  17. Shanti Says:

    @ 456

    when i was in ghana i remember going to “sodom and gomorrah.” i went to a couple of other shanty towns too but i can’t remember any of the names. sodom and gomorrah sticks out in my memory. it was hard seeing some of the people live so hard. i remember i was eating ice cream and i basically only had the cone left and this lil kid came up and asked me if he could have it. broke my heart.

    i LOVE ghana though. i need to get back over there.

  18. 456 Says:

    nation you don’t know the half. i saw him again in capetown, south africa and he had 20,000 people -white, black, whatever -throwing up the diamond screaming ‘Hova’. Ten years ago Jay-Z wouldn’t have been allowed on the stage. his moms was there singing every lyric.

  19. 456 Says:


    i was feeling ghana too. it is so much more laid back than nigeria. it actually feels like the carribbean in a way.

    lmao, thats Redman

    Whats really good Nahrighters?

  38. EnglandRepresent Says:

    What up Stacker?

    That show looked class Eskay you little fucker. I bet that Redman freestyle tore the joint down, now get that nigga Hov to release a fuckin Funk Doc album.

    Copped another Lifestyles of the Poor and Dangerous Big L joint again at the weekend, my ex chiefed my copy, thievin little hoe. That nigga = 5x > Jay Z

  39. Paperstacker Says:

    Nothing much nigga, shit good round here b. Yeah but real talk Big L is a beast on the mic, nigga is most def better than hov lyrically.

  40. ShockWave Says:

    Yeah mayne, that was some real Hip-Hop shit going on up in there that night complete with the mini-brawl that didn’t even need security to squash. Niggas was grapplin’ and scrappin’ they seperated themselves and just walked away.

    Keith Murray be talkin’ that weed shiite but that nigga is so amped I think he have a little mescaline or acid in him. He is that nigga to open a show because he just get wild from the gate. Red was off the meter too. You see how dude jumped up after he went bodysurfing in the crowd?

    All in all it was some real Hip-Hop shiite. I’m trying to see Redman and Raekwon at the show they are doing there in November.

  41. EnglandRepresent Says:

    Redman and Raekwon doin a joint together is whats really good. I’d sell niggas back into slavery to go see that joint.

    Raekwon + Redman concert most probably > Roc the Block concert
