Best show live I've seen is Reflection Eternal, Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek sounded amazing. Just like the album. Another great show would be Mobb Deep - they didn't sound great but they sure put on a good show and played all their classics. Also Shad is amazing live saw him 2 weeks ago at Osheaga.

Atmosphere + Blueprint + Abstract Rude - Paint The Nation Tour.



Doomtree's show was full of charisma. It was amazing.

Rock the Bells 2008 (I believe it was 08...)

Blackalicious with Gift of Gab, with full band. My GOD the keyboard player stole the show. I went home and got their albums and was slightly disappointed that the album versions didn't have the same ... gusto... as the live show. Still great work, but I wish I had recorded that show.

I saw them open for Del and Hieroglyphics (the whole team). That was also a sight to see. I've seen Del, Casual, A Plus, Opio all separately since, but nothing beats them all on stage together. One of their kids (Tajai I think) rapped for a minute. He was less than 10 years old for sure... and we loved it. Crowd went nuts for him. :P

That all lead up to Rage Against the Machine, playing together for the first time in years, and then WU TANG Clan. Wu Tang was pretty cool. They had a ton of folks and I was pretty unfamiliar with who everyone was. Although I could tell who the fugly dude with the clock around his neck was

Also at that show was the Coup, which were pretty good. Boots Riley is a fun entertainer.

MF DOOM no-showed. Not even an impostor. Oh well/whatevs.


Aesop Rock put on a sick ass show that I saw last year in Reno. He's Aesop Rock, he's amazing. A good couple freestyles, a solid set, and one of the more active and lyric-knowledgeable crowds I've ever been apart of.

There's a live recording of Aesop in Asheville, North Carolina that I downloaded and kept because it was really a great show. He did 'Float' over NightLight's beat. He did a savage freestyle. "Mom called, where can I find ya. Smokin weed in a hotel in North Carolina! <crowd goes nuts>"
