From the cool cigarette tricks department... Snoop Dogg @ Stubb's tomorrow night, July 28! Get you some BBQ and some Dogg!

More info:

Cordozar Calvin Broadus, Jr. (born October 20, 1971), better known by his stage name Snoop Dogg (formerly Snoop Doggy Dogg or Doggy Dogg), is a Grammy Award-nominated American rapper, record producer, and actor. Snoop is best known as an MC in the West Coast hip hop scene, and for being one of producer Dr. Dre's most notable protégés. He popularized the catch phrase suffix "-izzle," a slang term or infix that had been in use for decades, but not nearly to the extent that it currently permeates the pop and hip hop music industry as well as general usage.

Snoop Dogg was a Crip gang member while in high school; shortly after graduation, he was arrested for cocaine possession and sentenced to three years in prison, then began his music career in 1992 after his release. He collaborated with Dr. Dre on several tracks on Dre's solo debut, The Chronic and on the titular theme song to the film Deep Cover. Snoop's debut album, Doggystyle, was released in 1993 under Death Row Records. Doggystyle went quadruple platinum and spawned several hit singles "Who Am I (What's My Name?)" and "Gin & Juice."

Planet Rock Party 8 - Creekside Lounge - July 25, 2009

From the outrigging department... Romeo Navarro presents... Planet Rock Party 8 @ Creekside Lounge this Saturday, July 25th!

Yep. I'll be there. Ernesto where you at!

More info:

A B-boy or B-girl is a person devoted to hip hop culture, more specifically, bboying/break-dancing. Crazy Legs of Rock Steady Crew explains the origin of the term - “the word b-boy originated from Kool Herc … b-boys and b-girls - break boys, break girls” [1]. Although numerous b-boys have suggested that the term refers to the 'breaks' on a record [1], Kool Herc says that this is not the case - “b-boy – boys that break, it didn’t come from breaks on the record, it comes from… this man he ‘broke’, he went to a point, a breaking point… we just used that exaggeration of that term to the dancing – the b-boys, break boys” [1]. The term quickly came to include any followers of hip hop, identifiable by attire, music listening preferences or lifestyle, but in recent years has reverted to its specific usage in connection with dance.

From the sweaty ballz department... J-Live & Homeboy Sandman along with Austin's own Feddi Man @ Paradise on July 12!

Get your tix here!

More info:

J-Live (also known as Justice Allah, legal name Jean-Jacques Cadet) is an MC, DJ, and producer from New York, and also the founder of Triple Threat Productions.[1]

J-Live first appeared on the underground hip-hop scene in 1995, when he was a freshman English major at the University at Albany, The State University of New York. His first single "Longevity" appeared on Mark Farina's Mushroom Jazz CD, and follow-up singles "Braggin' Writes" and "Hush the Crowd" garnered widespread attention, getting him printed in the "Unsigned Hype" section of The Source. This led to a record contract with Raw Shack Records. His first album, The Best Part, recorded from 1995 to 1999, featured production by Prince Paul, DJ Premier, and Pete Rock. Due to problems with his record label, J-Live left the label and the album was shelved. He moved to Payday Records, but when Payday's parent company London Records was bought from Universal Music Group by WEA, the album was again shelved. In 2001, copies surfaced as bootlegs and several were of such high quality it was rumored that J-Live himself was behind them. By the fall of 2001, The Best Part was finally officially released after five years of label problems. It was released on Triple Threat Productions, J-Live's own record label.
