2 Brand New 2nd Floor Samurais Tracks FREE Downloads

My group 2nd Floor Samurais released two bangers last night and they’re available for FREE download!

The first one, Samurai Original, is produced by longtime Bay Area artist Mister Cleen, and references one of our clothing sponsors.. I implement my patented 4 bar language switch on this one.

Here are the “Samurai Mask” hats from Samurai Original. If you’re interested, click here.

The second banger is 2nd Floor Soldier, produced by our cohort Seneca of Earth Amplified. We take a no-nonsense RBG stance on this one and all of my verses are in Japanese. These are my most serious Japanese bars thus far.

“差別じゃねー少数民族の現実/ を冷静に書き続ける僕の鉛筆/はポン人の常識にゃ収まらない/悪魔も眠りにつくララバイ”

Shout out D-Wiz at Drum Dealer for mixing these songs.

ROTC 1 Year Anniversary Showcase

You probably know by now that I help organize a weekly event called Return of the Cypher, which is an open-mic jam session at John Lee Hooker’s Boom Boom Room on Sunday nights. You probably know that it’s the fastest growing Hip Hop event in the Bay Area and that we have a very supportive community. If you were raised by the culture, you will feel like you finally made it home. All MC’s are encouraged to spit. We will be celebrating our one year anniversary on 06/15 with an amazing showcase filled with a diverse range of artists that have come through in the past year.

ROTC One Year

Preceding the anniversary showcase, the San Francisco Black Film Festival will be premiering “‘Til Infinity,” a Souls of Mischief documentary. Needless to say, it is extremely appropriate to host a world premier documentary about the Bay Area legends before our platoon of independent rappers set it off.

12/28 Hip Hop for Change Holiday Party

My comrade Khafre of the BPos crew runs Hip Hop for Change, an organization dedicated to educating people about socio-economic injustice and empowering them through Hip Hop. As you can see, Khafre is not playing around at all.

It’s an honor to be performing at the Hip Hop for Change 12/28 Holiday Party @ the Elbo Room. (647 Valencia St, San Francisco, CA 94110.) My crew 2FS (Orukusaki x Kensho Kuma) will be rocking alongside BPos, Seneca, Mint Rock (Bored Stiff,) Davu and the Bottom Hammer Band.
