The 2nd Floor Samurais had an enormously successful show at the Chapel back in late-January; we are proud to announce that we will be returning on May 6th to the venue with genre-transcending band La Gente and the world famous J-Boogie’s Dubtronic Science team. Tickets are speculated to sell out for this one, so get them early!
2FS proudly serves on the board of directors for Hip Hop for Change, a non-profit dedicated to battling socioeconomic inequalities, police brutality in the urban community, and detrimental messages disseminated through corporate media outlets, through the implementations of educational outreach, grassroots canvassing, and local Hip Hop showcases.
HH4C director Khafre Jay is also an emcee of BPos and we have been planning a 2FS x BPos show for a while.. this is not to be missed..
2nd Floor Samurais are off to a very busy 2016.. Our 2nd official show of the year will be “Japan Rap Night” on 02/21 at the Stork Club in Oakland. Our longtime comrade Shing02 will be returning to the Bay after a prolonged absence, and he will be doing a Nujabes tribute set with Spinmaster A-1.

2FS (Orukusaki x Kensho Kuma) -> Come rock with us..
2nd Floor Samurais (Kensho Kuma x Orukusaki) teamed up with veteran Zulu Ink One for “Exotic Jewels.” The production was handled by Ink and the mixing and mastering was done by Just Jay @Hall of Fame studio in Oakland. It’s free for DL.. a flashy, fun banger you can rock to in the whip…
I’m fresh dressed like a million bucks/ my charisma make the chickenheads blush/ yall need to be giving it up/ we are 2FS, competition get crushed/ Exotic Jewels, worn by the warlord/ rare-ass Adidas and Nikes in my wardrobe/ playing this game, don’t care ’bout a scoreboard/ flashing with fashion, and also mi flow form/ yeah, my grandfather’s peacoat/ I rock with some Wallabees, slaughtering your egos/ we know the vision that’s shown to the people/ don’t mean shit, unless you back it up with c-notes/ stay on the grind, work multiple jobs/ walk in God’s light amongst men full of Jihad/ we are M.O.P. fans, keep it rugged and raw/ but I’ll bang a model chick in a luxury car/
2nd Floor Samurais (Kensho Kuma x Orukusaki) have recruited some of the deadliest swordzmen they know to bring a high quality Hip Hop event. It’s going down 09/05 @the Showdown in SF, and of course it’s free; we guarantee the absolute finest in independent lyricism, production, and hustle. Flier designed by Marcus Murray.
These are the ronins that we reached out to and are confirmed:
On 08/16/2015, we will be premiering 2FS’ “Whatchanameis” video @ROTC, in conjunction with Kensho Kuma’s Birthday! All patrons rocking panda attire will receive a very special Pandaneze gift from the Japanda!!
