6/16: Just Announced-Mos Def w/Zion I tonight

Posted by novoscene on June 16, 2008

So while the cancellation of this past weekend’s Paid Dues festival left many underground hip hop fans screaming at the heavens, clutching their backpacks and wondering aloud “O GOD Rakim, why has thou forsaken us?!”, tonight’s just announced Mos Def show at Ruby Skye should help restore some stability to the four pillars.

Mos was added to the Paid Dues lineup at the last minute and since he’s already in town and everything, why not play a special last minute show right? Seems like the only thing to do. And to sweeten the deal, Oakland’s hip hop superheroes Zion I will be opening the night along with tunes by DJ Big Von.

But if you can’t wait any longer, snack on this delicious classic vid for Umi Says off the 1999 album “Black on Both Sides”, then get your conscious hip hop fix tonight, cuz Rock the Bells doesn’t roll into town for another 2 months.-kwan
