Re: “A Black Day: Local emcees form a Springs supergroup

Black P promotes shows where it is openly acceptable to rap over lyrics. He is not being accused of lip sync'n in the article. However, I have seen people Dj Shevy Dj'd for at union station lip sync their butts off for paying customers at a Black P promoted show... the point being made is that in one local scene it is not acceptable to play an entire CD with vocals and perform on top of it, and in the other led by one Black P the promoter IT IS ACCEPTED..

Re: “A Black Day: Local emcees form a Springs supergroup

Black P actually doesn't use his vocals on every track. Some on the hook and only 2 songs. One song he jumps in the crowd and the other is a song he is featured on. Either way he is actually performing ALL his songs. He isn't lip syncing at all, not one bit. When he performs you hear his voice over the tracks that may have vocals or back up vocals. If you can't tell its 100% him on stage then he must have that much stamina or you just aren't listening. I support all local acts and talent. I have been in the seen for few years now and respect everyone who goes after a dream. I know Black P is actually rapping because I have ALL his show cuts on my laptop, I am his DJ. I have been his DJ since the Brass Knuckle King album. I have DJed for most of the Hip-Hop acts in Colorado Springs, Denver, Foco and other parts of the state and I have heard artists that really do lip sync and just act like they are rapping. Black P, on the other hand, is most defiantly not faking his performance. The ReMINDers use their voices 100% as well. I know they weren't included in that but just in case people questioned their performances. I have DJed for them several times and you can't fake their performance. To me, Black P and The ReMINDers are the leaders of southern CO Hip-Hop and their track records prove it. Bottom line is Black P doesn't lip sync or use vocals on every track. He grew up on performing the lyrics word for word over the beat. He is 100% performing EVERY track on stage with or without back up vocals. Go to a show and see for yourself.

@siggie Go to his show. I just went last night and there was just great music. There's no need to miss out because of that fear. If you love the guy, go listen to him.

Re: “Everlast explores the life acoustic

I don't expect him to come out with a new album soon, he just released Life Acoustic and it is great. But when Everlast does release something new I'll buy it. I didn't care for La Coka Nostra but glad to see Everlast is doing hip hop still.

Re: “Hip-hop summits and back porch angst

You forgot to mention the fact that the Wandering Monks have a LIVE BAND backing them up. They not only are hitting that stage with an abundance of truth and flow, but they also bring a Guitarist (he's sick!), a bassist (mystery mask wearing phenom), a drummer (you can just call him McNasty), and a keyboardist (who's not only silky sexy on keys but rocks a trumpet and whatever other instruments he can get his hands on).

Though you could sit and really get an education from the content behind the lyrics, you can also get up and shake ya tail feather to the solid groove this group lays down. You'll want to catch this show so you can say "I saw them when they were just coming up in Colorado"... See them now while they're still doing the local shows!

Re: “Last Supper celebrates the resurrection

So, no Christians are fussing about this play on sacred doctrines. I wonder what would happen if there was a band called Rag Heads that had a hit entitled Allah Akbar?

Re: “Next of skin: Total Annihilation returns from the dead

Apul, do your research before you make a statement like that. If you don't know anything about the skinhead subculture then don't talk about it, you are clearly showing you ignorance on the subject.

Re: “Next of skin: Total Annihilation returns from the dead

asians can't be skinheads. what kind of confused person is the singer thinking he's a skinhead? at most he can be a bald headed punk rocker. non whites can't be skinheads.

Re: “From GWAR to eternity: Mobile Deathcamp takes out the thrash

Hard work is very important in any work to go from top to bottom.This is the result of their hard work that Todd Evans and his band members are successfully running this band.
