DC Hip-Hop with a live band at a skate shop? With Nuvo?
Yeah, the concept sounds surreal, however that didn’t deter Judah, Strange Music, and 368 Music Group (along with sponsorship by Fusicioclogy and The Couch Sessions) from dropping the He Said, She Said party on Friday night. Backed by the illustrious Sound of the City, both MCs tore it down to a capacity crowd and represented the DC Area to the fullest. Ra the MC took the fashion game a step further with her homage to Michael Jackson on the start of the King of Pop’s birthday weekend, and Phil Ade threw down with his set, taken strictly off of his Starting on JV Mixtape.
The highlight of the night, however, had to be when both Phil and Ra got on stage for the DMV rendition of Jay-Z’s “Run This Town,” proving that the DC area is proving to be a force in the musical landscape.
