Z&K’s House Party

I hooked up with the SF legend Z-Man, took a time machine back to ’94, went to the livest house party in Berkeley, drank hella Mickey’s, took three ounces of psilocibin mushrooms, and then recorded this song.. Yup.. this one is dedicated to the good old days. Smoke a beedi to this one. Produced by Far Beats, representing Nantes, France. Mixed by my man D-Wiz.

Z&K’s House Party feat. Z-Man

Kensho Kuma Verse 1: “To all of my people working jobs they hate/ get you 151, and then go cop an eighth/ do some shit, you’ll regret on a later date/ let’s have a house party, fuck what the neighbors say/ Z, you bring the groupies, I’ll get the geishas/ we love ratchet women of various flavors/ Indians, Dominicans, Jews, and Asians/ I pop pills turn into a Super Sayan/ where the blondes looking like Android 18?/ come hook-up with yo’ potna’, we’ll make a great team/ peace to every girl who ever slept with me/ we takin’ shrooms, but never methamphetamine/ she dancing real close, wanna get her ass rubbed/ after lotsa molly she puked in the bathtub/ damn psilocibins hit me like a Mack truck/ (blam!) screw everything, tonight the night to act up/”

Chorus: “This that party shit, take it back to ’94/ let’s celebrate everything we grinding fo’/ fans scream hella loud like a lion’s roar/ Z-Mainey, Ken Kuma be rhyming raw” x 2

Kuma Verse 2: “Yo boy Kuma done more coke, than Mick Jagger/ they glamorizing drugs, huh, like that shit matters/ these sluts with double D-cups, doing key bumps/ Z and K spitting audio crack on each cut/” “They say Asians drink and turn red like magma/ but I turn green, and start stabbing mumble rappers/ feel guilty reading these AA pamphlets/ if you drinking too much than you understand this/”

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.

510 Japanda Thug Wins ROTC Halloween MC Battle

My alter ego 510 Japanda Thug won the ROTC Halloween MC Battle; all contestants had to battle as their characters and Japanda faced very worthy opponents. Captain Ruksok hosted, Z-Man from the Hiero Imperium helped with the judging, and DJ Kevvy Kev held down the decks.

Preliminary Cypher

Round 1: 510 Japanda Thug vs. Anonymous

Round 2: 510 Japanda Thug vs. Spready Kruger

Final Round: 510 Japanda Thug vs. Slender Woman

On some real shit, I thought that the final round could’ve gone either way.. so I decided to split the prize money with Slender Woman… who is actually the alter ego of Babii Cris. A lyrical prodigy who is barely 21.. her self-produced, self-engineered album is dropping 01/03/15.

2FS Live @Allattractive x OMF Daytime Party 09/27/14

2FS (Orukusaki x Kensho Kuma) will be performing live at the Allattractive x OMF daytime party at the Legionnaire on 09/27/14. Allattractive is an awesome independent clothing brand masterminded by the homie Allcreative; his gear is regularly rocked by heads that actually are active in the scene.. I believe this is evident of his label supporting the artists putting in work and vice versa. Oakland Music Festival is celebrating its second year in the Uptown District of Downtown Oakland. It’s a multi-genre, indoor/ outdoor festival and they are partnering up with local venues to host additional showcases. My crew will be @the Legionnaire showcase. The main line-up available here, and features the comrades Latin Soul Brothers and Kool Kyle.

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.

07/05/13 Thizzler Wildstyle Session

Thizzler on the Roof is a reliable Bay Area Rap portal that closely covers local acts… They have begun a monthly cypher session at the First Friday Oakland Art Mur Mur celebrations; DJ Twelz and Z-Man were hosting the session when I got there and I just did what I do. Props to Deuce Eclipse from the Zion-I crew and Do-Dat from the Attik for holding it down as well. The next one is 08/02/13; I’ll be out in Asia, so go rep for me.
