Cloud NI9E- Golden Gate feat. R.O.T.C. MC’s

A brand new posse track produced by my Japanese trackmaker Cloud NI9E. My R.O.T.C. infantry Denero, Slice IX, Unlearn the World, and Spread Fox, were recruited to rock this classic sample with me. I decided to implement my patented 4 bar language switch-up on this one.

 

“テレビにゃ絶対映らんアメリカ/ 全ての人種が集まるタケリア/メディアよりも本当に為になる/のは地元の声, いつも派手にやる/startups are killing it, residents getting by/ everything around here’s getting so gentrified/ this the Bay, where the dope artists are centralized/ home of the independent hustlers, we meant to rise/ マイメンは黒人と白人のハーフ/ 日の丸は俺の移民のマーク/ ベイエリアを背負った奴 in the house/ メキシコ人, フィリピーノ,  信じあう/ to unify the tribes, is what we rapping for/ from the cities in Asia to International/ traveling overseas, on sabbaticals/ as I teach continents, what I’m learning back at home”

ROTC 2 Year Anniversary

Return of the Cypher will be celebrating it’s 2 year anniversary on 06/14/15. If you don’t know by now, ROTC is the livest weekly Hip Hop party in the Bay Area; a free open-mic jam session with a resident band, weekly featured performers, and the legendary DJ Kevvy Kev. It goes down every Sunday night at the SF Boom Boom Room. Point blank, it’s your home if you were raised by this culture. We will have 15+ performers on the 2 year anniversary and my crew 2FS will be the hosts. See you there. Oh, and the Black Film Festival will be premiering a Mac Dre Documentary called “Legend in the Bay” prior to our celebration.. and that’s free too..

Revolver Open Mic

Revolver Open Mic is a sister event of “Return of the Cypher” which occurs first and third Wednesdays at the Showdown (60 Sixth St. San Franciso.) The event is coordinated by my teammates Orukusaki and Denero, is frequented by all the ROTC regulars, and beatsmiths like Bayroo Burner, Stonerock, and Decap often show up to play instrumentals. SF icon DJ Johnny Venetti of BPos is the venue owner, so it’s got a very welcoming environment.

Kensho Kuma Hosting ROTC 04/27/14

If you know me from real life, you know that I religiously attend “Return to the Cypher” @the Boom Boom Room (1601 Fillmore St., SF) on Sunday nights. You already know that I’m a ROTC director and I care very much about the event. You already know that I invite every MC I meet to come through and spit. If you have ever been to ROTC you know that it’s a very supportive and organic community that we’re building. On 04/27/14 I will be the cypher host and also will be featured during the weekly performance. My homie Denero’s Stocks and Bonds crew will be the featured guest on 04/27. The event is free as usual, so come through.

Also, this particular ROTC will feature our One Track Wonder competition. Contestants get to perform one song, the audience judges, and the 04/27 champion will receive prizes and an invite to perform in a future competition amongst the winners.
