Why ya'll so quiet?

Look at all those people having fun in the picture on the bottom! Looks like they are thoroughly enjoying a dope performance, feeding energy to the performers who are probably rocking even harder cuz of the the love they are receiving. Unfortunately, the crowd we rocked to last night at the Living Room in Providence, RI looked more like the picture up top. And not because they were little kids, but because they seemed thoroughly disinterested.

Now, before you start thinking, "here goes some wack MC complaining because the crowd all went to the bar during his boring ass set", understand that the crowd (and it was a CROWD) looked disinterested ALL NIGHT LONG. And they were witnessing some truly hot performers and performances. Don't take my word for it, either, go check out AXE BUTANE for yourself. He performed to crickets and tumbleweeds and he's got SKILLS! Even the PROBLEMADDICTS, who were one of the featured performers and relatively local, got no love from the crowd. Again, they ripped it... to virtual silence!

Maybe "no love" is an overstatement, because, actually, when our set was over, we got maaaaddd love from people who came up to us to compliment us on our performance. What made no sense to me is why they chose to just stand around quietly during the performance if they were enjoying it so much. I know that when I go to a show, I'm there to have a good time and to get amped off the performances. When a dope MC is ENGAGING me and INVITING me to participate, well, that's what I paid my hard earned money for at the door, so, I'm gonna participate. The fact that I'm participating is gonna make the performer work even harder to keep me entertained. So my advice to the people who we met last night is that ya'll should give that a try. You'd be amazed at how much more fun you'll have when you decide to, well, HAVE FUN!!!

Looking forward to seeing everyone having a good time at this month's Enter the Cypher at Cousin Larry's in Danbury on the 18th. We are having a DJ Battle and feature performances by the RISING SUN QUEST, WIGSPLITTA and BIG CITY, and 1997.
