Hypekillaz: The Shit You Need


Lil Wayne at the Nassau Coliseum by DLOOS

As Wu-Tang wraps up their tour, another, more modern, heavy hitter is coming to the New Jersey/ New York area. Lil Wayne will be performing with T-Pain, Keri Hilson, Gym Class Heroes, and Keyshia Cole at the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, New York on Friday January 16th. Tickets are running at about $45 but having seen Lil Wayne perform live, if you are a fan, it is an amazing experience. Also, I would like to congratulate Lil Wayne on his recent Grammy Nomination for Best Album for Tha Carter 3, which came as a huge surprise, to see a stereotypical average rapper be nominated for a Grammy.

Protest Concert at Democratic National Convention by DLOOS

On August 27th (Wednesday) a protest concert was staged outside the D.N.C. in support of Iraq Veterans Against the War. It started as a 2-mile march across Denver to the Pepsi Center. A mass of what was said to be between 4,500 to 6,000 people gathered outside the Pepsi Center, and refused to stand in what was designated as the protest zone, dubbed the Freedom Cage. Most of the protesters just relaxed, smoking weed and playing dice. Performers included Flobots, The Coup and Rage Against the Machine, who for the first time in their career, played a show which didn’t involve the audience going into a violent frenzy. Among the highlights of the day were RATM breaking into their MC5 cover “Kick Out the Jams” with assistance from MC5 guitarist himself, Wayne Kramer, dressed in all white with an American Flag painted guitar.
