This past Thursday at Le Poisson Rouge in the West Village of New York City, the 3rd installment of our 4-part series in conjunction with Wax Poetics Magazine went down. Another amazing night, with roughly 900 people coming out to see Kendra Morris & DJ Premier. Skullcandy’s own Tom Shiner, aka Doc Delay kicked the night off in a big way playing many of the same funk and soul standards that shaped DJ Premier and influenced the music he has made. Following up Doc Delay’s crowd-stirring set, the amazingly talented Ms. Kendra Morris stepped to the mic, backed by her band and back-up singers. All I can say, and anyone who was there I’m sure would agree, is what a voice this lady has! She is about to pop and become a name people know, and damn what a voice! The way I judge talent and vocals is how they sound live vs. on record. There aren’t many people I can say sound as good if not better live than they do on wax and she is definitely one of them. Please, please, I urge you to seek out her music as she is one to hear. Wait until you see the video dropping soon.
Finishing the night off for the mesmerized crowd was my man, hip-hop’s man, and Guru’s man: DJ Premier. Premier has been a very influential person in my life, and we were very blessed to be in his presence. Having seen him perform as a member of Gangstarr, it was a bit sad to see him without his long-time partner in crime, Keith Elam aka Guru, but he definitely continues to carry the torch for his fallen friend. Premier destroyed the decks, playing many of the standard hip-hop selections that shaped the genre in the 80’s & 90’s. All you can really say about Primo is thank you for coming through & thank you for playing Discipline. That’s it for now. Catch up with all of you at the 4th & final part of our artist showcase series. Peace. -Josh
