Grynch Killed It Last Night

In Uncategorized on May 3, 2014 at 8:36 pm

The Grynch record release party last night at Crocodile Seattle.

I followed it entirely from Southern California via social media. It was the best I could come up with under the circumstances – I cant get back to Seattle for a few weeks.

Twitter blew up for Grynch during a few key moments. My Volvo and Mr. Rogers received most enthusiastic responses. Grynch seemed nicely surprised when Macklemore, Kokane and others came through. In fact, everyone except me were there. Well, G Prez is on tour with Devin The Dude so that’s two of us.

Oh. I forgot to mention. It was a sold out show. So there was that. Not bad for a town that started its hiphop scene in Laundromats.

Yes. We did that.

Sonny Bonoho – A Name You Should Know

In Dexter on November 20, 2013 at 5:00 pm

I’ve been a fan and a friend to Sonny Bonoho for many years. It began one night in a gritty club in downtown Seattle.

Daddy O (StetsaSonic, MCA – Mary J. Blige, etc.) and I walked in after Neema from Unexpected Arrival asked that we come through. A kid with jean shorts, Elton John’s glasses and cowboy boots had just walked onto the stage. About two songs in Daddy O and I looked at each other and just about said it at the same time¬†¬†– This Is The Kid.

Finally, after 12 years of his very hard work, Sonny Bonoho is breaking through. His recent association with Russell Simmons/Steve Rifkind/ADD hasn’t hurt one bit.

Enjoy.

In 2009, who knew how big it could get for these gentlemen? I knew they were the future but today, all I can say is – WOW.

Pay attention to Seattle. This is just the beginning…http://http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/2436588
