November 22, 2011DJ Green Lantern rocking the HEX Icon mid set. This past Friday at the Music Box in Hollywood, right on the infamous Hollywood Blvd to be exact, we teamed up with the fine folks over at Project RISHI to help sponsor a hip-hop show for the ages. Headlining the show was none other than Kendrick Lamar-who is probably the hottest thing in the world of hip-hop coming out of LA right now, along with DJ Green Lantern and Lamar's fellow TDE (Top Dawg Ent.) cast mate Schoolboy Q. Each of those three put on a performance that never saw the crowd stop moving, and pretty much set the tone for the evening. Opening acts Azad Right and Tiron & Ayomari also had a good showing, but the night truly belonged to hip-hop and it's king for the evening, Kendrick Lamar. I have never seen a crowd so pumped and responsive, with people knowing every single word to every song and even what Kendrick was going to say between breaks...it was amazing! Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q rocking it. The scene was set at the Music Box. Peeps were super psyched on our HEX gear. Backstage dressing rooms at the Music Box. Wonder how many legends have walked thru these parts? Backstage party area! The packed house was hanging on Kendrick's every word. The view from the VIP balcony. Opening act Azad Right. Other opening act Ayomari. The whole evening was a highlight and huge success in our eyes, but if we had to zero in on a few things we would have to say that one would definitely be none other than Busta Ryhmes coming out on stage to bless a track with Kendrick, the fact that The Doctor (Dr. Dre) was in the house and overall just the satisfying feeling we all had knowing that the event was such a success and that we helped to raise money for such a great cause. Busta Ryhmes stopped the show...literally. Kendrick Lamar is an absolute legend and when he jumped into the crowd at the end of his performance I thought people were gonna riot! Backstage fisheye fun with DJ Green lantern. He showed his HEX love by rocking his Icon watch band on stage. Green Lantern showing off his Icon.
