“Hip Hop………..alive and bumping in the Bean”
Written by: Big Yamo & Marco for Bostonianz617
Just as many have nearly come to accept the fact that Hip Hop is dead…………… The Good Life Bar in Boston played host to what in our eyes was “hip hop at its finest hour” and from the looks of everyone else who was there, they felt the same. Beantown rap legend Ed O.G and Brooklyn’s King of the Underground, Masta Ace came together to promote the duo’s first album together “Arts & Entertainment” at The Good Life for their record release party. The two performed several tracks from their album such as “Hands High” and their latest single “Little Young” which kept the crowd bumping and begging for more. Ace and Ed O also each performed solo tracks from their hay days which would be the late 80’s (I got to have it & Symphony). One interesting note, Both Ed O and Ace performed within the crowd not on any sort of stage or designated area. This was quite interesting to see them interact closely with the fans.
To top off the night, after an electrifying performance by Ace & Edo, Bostonianz617 got to witness Queensbridge great Marley Marl, one of hip hop’s greatest pioneers and original Juice Crew capo, spin it up on the turn tables that kept the crowd moving. Beantown welcomed Marley with open arms making his first time experience doing a show in Boston one to remember. The crowd appreciated everything that Marley threw at them, nothing but decades of classic hip hop and the memory of when hip hop was at its pure dominance in the music industry. It honestly felt like a big party that just kept getting better track after track. The fan base was on the older side ranging from low 30’s and above. You could sense the respect everyone had for one another and what presence they were in front of. The Bean showed nothing but love, and for that received the same amount of love in return.
Bostonianz617 had the honor to pay homage to the legends that still today bless their fans with nothing but solid beats and creative lyrics. On another note, one good perk of the night was that admission was only 10$ which included their full length CD. Make sure to grab the album “Arts & Entertainment” by Mast Ace and Ed O.G in stores now.
