Ghotsface Killah@The Paradise (review and videos)

Review and Video by Marco for Bostonianz617.

There was a time when I thought it couldn’t get any better at a small venue show than MOP coming to Boston @The Middle East Cambridge. Well it definitely got better with the appearance of original Wu-Tang-Clan member Ghostface Killah on Friday the 13th at The Paradise. Although both performances were equally great, the reality is Ghost reaches a broader audience.

Most notably, the female fans, who are almost always outnumbered 2 to 1 at hip hop shows, were definitely in the building. Ghost made sure they were part of the show asking 10-15 to come up on stage and participate. Also on the stage, repping Ghost’s affiliate family, was Trife Diesel (formerly Trife Da God) of the Theodore Unit and on the wheels was long time DJ- J Love.

One thing to note for all who come to see this artist is to make sure you come early and plant yourself in the best spot possible. I made the huge mistake of coming about 30 minutes prior to his performance. By the time I got there, The Paradise was more packed than the the mall on x-mas eve. The Paradise is a little more accommodating to fans than say Harpers Ferry or The Middle East. Their capacity is a bit more and they also have an upper deck section that’s shaped like a U. The song selection went as far back as his “protect ya neck” days to his current “Ghostdini” LP. Ghost made it very clear he came along way to perform and needed the audience to be as hyped as they could be. The audience definitely obliged by representing Beantown for what it is- a craved hip-hop city. For that there is now almost a hip hop show every weekend in the Bean.

Shout out to Ghostface, the whole Wu-Tang-Clan and Theodore Unit

Warren G@Harpers Ferry tonight 11/07/09


Warren G exploded out of the burgeoning Long Beach rap scene in 1994 with the smash single "Regulate," a duet with longtime friend Nate Dogg, and its accompanying album, Regulate...G Funk Era.

G grew up in Long Beach listening to his parentsÕ extensive collection of jazz, soul and funk records, also frequently hanging out at the local V.I.P. record store. As a teenager, he and his friends Nate Dogg and future superstar Snoop Dogg formed a rap group called 213, after their area code. Eventually, the V.I.P. record store allowed the trio to practice and record in a back room. It was here that Snoop cut the demo "Super Duper Snooper," which G played for his half-brother Dr. Dre at a party. Dre invited all three to his studio and wound up collaborating with Snoop on The Chronic. While G also made several contributions, he opted to develop his talents mostly outside of DreÕs shadow. He honed his musical skills while producing such artists as MC Breed and 2Pac.

A break came when his vocal collaboration with Mista Grimm, "Indo Smoke," appeared on the Poetic Justice soundtrack. Soon after that, G recorded his debut album. "Regulate" appeared on the Above the Rim soundtrack and was released as a single. It quickly became a massive hit, peaking at 2 on the Billboard charts and pushing the album up to the same position. The album eventually went triple platinum, with "This D.J." becoming his second Top 10 hit.
