I went to the first show of Supafest in Brisbane and some could quite rightfully call it from an organisational stand point a Supafail.
Tomorrow marks the most important day of the year in Australia for the hip hop/rap/R&B community…
the start of the Supafest 2012 tour!
Supafest is back on tour again in Australia and the artist line up is thebomb.com!
My man Drake *screams* performed at the 2011 Cali Christmas Concert sponsored by Power 106FM.
For those of you outside of Cali who couldn’t make it, don’t sweat it, I got the whole concert here for you to watch courtesy of Yardieiz4Life. Shout out to Ce_Fenty_Drizzy for tipping me off on this one.
I saw Sade in Brisbane on 12 December 2011 returning after 24 years – it wasn’t anything but a ‘smooth operation.’
My fabulous company at the gig Mr Black Cat summed the concert up in one word: ‘perfection.’
On November 2 2011, I saw the incomparable Miss Janet Jackson in concert on the Gold Coast. I was too young when the Velvet Rope Tour first came to Australia, however that album remains my favourite to this day. I was truly blown away by her performance and ability to entertain while dancing AND singing and keeping it sexy (yeah that’s sexy, sexy, sexy….)
New Jersey natives Naughty by Nature aka hip hop royalty graced our city with their presence on October 29 in Brisbane. Unfortunately this was a gig yours truly could not attend, however HollysAGemini did so keep reading for the gig breakdown on the Naughty ones.
Before Nicki Minaj there was Eve. The princess of rap from Ruff Ryders fame. Last night I checked out Eve at The Hamilton Hotel and was really blown away by her live rapping ability and swagger to match.
My boy Nick tipped me off on Eve touring Australia this September. This took me by surprise because Eve hasn’t released any singles or albums since 2007 with her hit single “Tambourine.” “Tambourine” did not perform too well on the US charts which led to further difficulties. She began working on an album of which “Tambourine” would feature titled Here I Am (which is the exact title of Kelly Rowland’s latest solo album), however it was delayed to September 11, 2007 and then October 16 but it was never released. According to Eve in an interview with the New York Post in February 2009 the problems at Interscope Records were responsible for the pushbacks.
