Cocain Richard: It was a shot at P. It didn't say at shows he promotes. Saying he is more mainstream then underground. Actually I just play there music. I don't know what they are going to perform. If they want to lip sync then they can. That's up to them. I always can tell when they do and yeah it is wack when ppl just lip sync. Even if you perform over your CD who cares? That's how that person feels comfortable performing. Many lose their voice and have the vocals on the track help them save their voice a bit. Either way its up to them how they want to perform. P brings a lot of talent to Colorado Springs and puts on a lot of local acts from all over southern CO on shows. If it wasn't for him artists wouldn't have a place to showcase their talents or just do something they love. No one I actually have DJed for has ever lip synced. Some have used their vocals on a few or a lot of songs but they are all performing. Plus it is always better when doing a big show that you have some vocals on a track because honestly the sound guys don't care about support acts on shows. They focus on just the headliners unless they know the artist.
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.
