This week we went to an event put on by the band New Retro featuring many artists including Brain Rapp, DJ NatureBoi, DeltaNine, K.Eye.D, Davonne D. Neil, DMV Mac, Aye Yo Smiley, Rob Regal, Visto, and more. The event was full of lyricism, dope production, and pure hip-hop and soul. The As the sounds rocked on and the event progressed the crowd remained hype throughout every session creating a feel good atmosphere at the Rock & Roll Hotel on H. St in Washington, D.C.
Most importantly every artist left it on the stage and were well received by the mix of hipsters and hip-hop’ers alike that made up the crowd. The performance that stood out amongst them all would have to be the DeltaNine set in which rappers took the stage and went into an ongoing freestyle for about 5-7 minutes a piece over original beats being produced on the spot by DeltaNine. That was the sickest thing I’ve ever seen at a show. Overall this event was bananas and I’ll definitely be on the look out for the next one.
