#LaitandAbout Cyphers, Divas and Illbliss Live!
If you ask me to describe last night in one word, i would say "Super Lit" (make that two words please.El-o-el).
I was at the 5ive Live Hip-Hop sessions' second instalment where rapper, Illbliss, had a special showcase for his fourth studio album "Illygaty; 7075" for an exclusive audience at the Bridge lounge, Lekki. The event was hosted by Chocolate City's finest Loose Kaynon.
The show was scheduled to begin at 6PM but hey! It was "African Time" as usual. One hour twenty minutes later, The Vintage Band opened the show with an electrifying performance as they sang a medley of songs from the international and local scene.
What's a Hip-Hop event without the elements of Hip-Hop? The four elements of Hip-Hop- MCing, DJing, Graffiti & B-boying were all on display and all the acts; popular or underground; performed before Illbliss took the stage. I'm talking Jesse Jags, Eva Alordiah, Dice Ailes, Yung6ix, Terry Apala, Dotman, Fresh L, Ms Chief, Pryse, Oladips and many more.
When 'Oga Boss', Illbliss, came on, he started by explaining that 7075 was his NYSC number and that his mother thinks this is the best collection of work he has done so far.
He went on to perform songs from his 12 track album which features acts like, Falz, Runtown, Vector, Phyno, Bovi, Ycee, and Koker.
All in all, i would call it a really good night, with the cypher and Pryse and Eva's performance as highlights for me.
