Big Love and Huge Hugs to the Master Eye himself, Johnny J Jones of Zoë Pictures for coming out and capturing the night of December 12th, when I was the direct opener for Juicy J at Ziggy’s in Winston-Salem.
First and foremost, we’d like to thank EVERYONE in attendance at Friday Night’s event DURM Hip Hop Summit Presents: A Hip Hop Holiday at Tir Na Nog, brought to you by Younger Brother Productions.
Feeding off of the amazing energy of Friday night’s crowd, Napoleon Wright II delivered an amazing performance. Serenading the audience along with dope lyrics and Pop n Lockin’ on top of it. The Real Laww held true to the name, showing that he is the “Lyricist At Work.. Work!” Not only by providing a highly energetic performance with exceptional call and response tactics but also curated and organized the whole event. On top of backing The Real Laww on the wheels of steele, DJ Shahzad carried the energy of the whole show on his back. Not only providing smooth and seemless transitions from one act to the next but also completed the evening with a dance party that kept the crowd moving even after the venue and bar had closed, people just didn’t want to leave! The Host Bishop Omega was on point, keeping the show moving and the crowd fully entertained between sets.
Congratulations are in order for winner of the Hip Hop Holiday Beat Battle, Kevo Beats. He will be placed in the 2015 DURM Hip Hop Summit producer battle as part of the grand prize. Not to say his journey was an easy one, the competition was fierce. So we can’t go on with out mentioning the other contestants who did such a great job and their production skills deserves to be recognized as well.
