Diggin’ this joint off Smoke DZA’s new album Homegrown—shouts to my man Ev Boogie at Cinematic.
I unfortunately couldn’t make it out to see Roc Marciano’s show at the Highline Ballroom on Thursday night (Rap Dad duty called), but I had a feeling it was gonna be one of those nights you don’t want to miss. Turns out I was right. See footage above of Busta Rhymes’ guest appearance on stage, where he gave one of the biggest public displays of respect I’ve ever seen in hip-hop—calling Roc one of his Top 5 MCs and explaining for close to four minutes why he’s truly a Rap God. Shouts to my boy Eric Diep for the footage.
And below, see flicks from the show courtesy of Photo Rob, featuring Meyhem Lauren, DJ Muggs, Dallas Penn, Premium Pete, Westside Gunn, Action Bronson, Big Body Bes, Knowledge The Pirate, V Don, Lil Eto, Smoke DZA and Jazz.
Yo Jazz, what is that sweatshirt you’re wearing?!? Salute to Roc Marciano and everyone who was involved in this historic night—this crop of talent represents hip-hop’s finest.
Uptown pothead Smoke DZA returns with a his latest tape George Kush Da Button: Don’t Pass Trump The Blunt, with features by Action Bronson, Roc Marciano, A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$, Domo Genesis and more, plus production by Alchemist, Pete Rock, Mac Miller, and D Dot?! Oh yeah, this shit looks crazy. Twist up.
