Kensho Kuma featured on MixtapeLive Episode II: Cali Factors

Yours truly is featured on Xienhow‘s “MixtapeLive Episode II: Cali Factors” off of the upcoming “No Retreat, No Surrender” mixtape. The track is an interesting new concept; 5 pairs of emcees spit 8 bars over 5 different beats, the DJ blends them, and there will be a music video to accompany it. It’s literally a mixtape in a single song.. The featured emcee pairs are Zyme and Jack Tradez, XP the Marxman and Ruby Ibarra, myself and Orukusaki, and Babii Cris and XienHow, with DJ Rebelion holding down the blends.

And since I only had 8 bars, I alternate languages every 2 bars to showoff the bilingual swordz.. “Animated murderer, similar to Deadpool/ ninja with an attitude, conditioned to behead fools/ 血まみれコンクリートが俺らの根っこ/人生を変えた紫のカセット/ (East Bay) edition of Asiatic poetry/ guided by righteous minded fighters who are close to me/ 国籍何でもポン人の誇り/今でもいる我らが生き残り”

 

XienHow “Process: the 7th Sign” Album Release Party

2FS comrade/ veteran emcee/ videographer XienHow will be celebrating the release of his “Process: the 7th Sign” album on November 20th, 2015 @the Elbo Room in San Francisco. It has been rumored for months now that the Valencia venue will close its doors, so this may be one of your last opportunities to enjoy a Hip Hop show there. The night will also serve as the release party for SF OG Aukwin, who will be presenting the “Aukthentic” album and will feature Z-Man as the master of ceremonials.
