Raheem Davaugh hosted the SoulSonic festival (I'm calling it that cause there was like 50 ppl on the card...LOL!) held last night at the Sonar Lounge. I had a very good time. Big Ups to Crooked Streetz (Booman, jimmy jones & Pop) and Ankh Ba Records (Labtekwon) for organizing a VERY abstract show. Fans of avante garde hip hop will LUUUUUUUUV Labtekwon (one of the night's headliners). Check out his website for a sample of the "aesthetic" & pleeeeeeeaaaasssseeee... Lemme know what you think. I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Lab when he judged a Style Warz during the summer. His reputation precedes him.....It's ALL true*true*true*!!! To say "He likes the ladies" is a major understatement. He is definitely a Flirt (with a capitol F)....Skirtchaser...p*ssy hound...etc. He plays the odds by throwing his line waaaaaaaaaay back behind his shoulder before sinking it deep in the river of potential concubines ...something is bound to bite...LOL!!! I knoooooooow you saw that weird ass video they were running on BET uncut for the entire summer. But hey, that's part of his charm. He likes us thick chicks too....at least he has taste!!! "Bmore's Kool Keith", (& I mean that with the utmost respect) I think you are the most original dude!!! Pleeease don't let the weird glasses, off key & beat singing, crazy mangled hair or the flambouyant gold toof -N- chain wearing, Louie V bucketbag carrying, male side kick throw you off.... He def got some street ish for ya...that's if you can get past the chanting and calls for the mothership to ascend on the audience....Can you tell I don't really know how to sum him up?...LOL! in many ways....that is such a great thing!!! D-i-v-e-r-s-i-t-y is a BEAUTIFUL thing!!! Dude is definitely himself!!!! ............ALL DAY LONG!
Why does my face look all twisted up like dat???...LOL! Raheem looks so calm, cool and collected. I really need to practice my "hollywood" smile a lil more. I hate this pic, but I adore "Mr. Love Experience". I actually got a lil nervous (WOW! That seldom happens) I will get another pic .....& will wear a stunning smile next time.
I love his album!
