If you have ever met Brick Diggler from Timebomb you know one thing for sure. This guy is a LEGEND. He is instantaneously the most memorable and one of the most solid dudes you will ever meet. He’ll remember twenty customers names while talking to a hip-hop legend on the phone like they have known each other for 20 years… because Brick has known the dude for 20 years. He’s just that dude.
I got a phone call from KT who works for Brick about two weeks ago asking if we wanted to be a part of the Timebomb Summer Cook Out Series Launch.
She immediately followed with “I figure you be down so, I already put you on the flyer.”
“Cool. What do you need?”
It looked like rain in the morning and the weather guy said it was gonna be bad. Weathermen are only right half time. (its gotta be an easy job) It was gorgeous all day long. All kinds of heads came through. BZE shot a rap video. The whole block was bumping and Brick well he did what he does best he was Brick. He grilled he made his appearance in the video with his chef’s hat on. Heads Just got down. Big Sean from Kanye’s Label came through. Mac Miller, My man Dos Noun, Nuke Knocka and a grip of others.
I wish I photos but, I had a huge phone malfunction that put a stop to that.(Don’t buy HTC phones)
We wrapped everything up around 8 and everyone was off to see Pete Rock right down the street.
Sunday was Father’s Day. It was also Go Skateboarding day and the day Blast brought a small army of white rappers (or whappers as Bobby likes to call them) to the HKAN. Educated Consumers, Doom Fist, Joe Boots, Basick Sickness all got down. We drank, they rapped, they drank, they rapped some more, we drank some more, my photos suck. Keeping with the on running theme of the weekend we partied the whole time we were at the venue Dos Noun the only sober one to witness some of the debacle called me the next morning laughing and then hung up. It was like that. Joe Boots Remixed Rancid songs into hip-hop tracks reworking lyrics and everything as his punk rock alter-ego Maxwell Murder. Basick Sickness not only put most of this together but, killed his set and he had to work in the morning. Dos Noun freestyled 75% of his set and laughed in embarrassment for his friends turned drunken savages. Dez and the guys from Doom Fist played “Rachel Profiling” the place went bonkers.
Not bad for a Sunday night.
Peep the Rachel Profiling Video…..
