WELL YEAH HIP HOP IN CAPE TOWN IS GETTING MUCH BIGGER NOW EVERYONE AND THEY MAMA WANNA BE A PROMOTER AND I FEEL THAT THE CULTURE IS BEING PIMPED AGAIN. THERE ARE MORE AND MORE MONTHLY EVENTS POPPING UP THAT JUST WILL NOT HAVE THE STAYING POWER OF AN EVENT THAT WAS BUILT OVER A 2 YEAR PERIOD. IT SEEMS THAT EVERYONE ON THE BANDWAGON IS SEEING THAT MONEY CAN BE MADE. I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE THAT WHEN GETO3000 FIRST STARTED WE CHARGED R5 AT THE DOOR.
NOW THESE JOHNNY-COME-LATELY'S WANNA CHARGE R15 AT THEIR VERY FIRST GIG?????? ON THE OTHER HAND WITH MORE LIVE SESSIONS THE ARTISTS ARE GETTING SOME CRAZY RESPONSES.
ANOTHER THING THATS BUGGING ME BIG TIME IS THAT EVERY TOM DICK AND SUCKER THINKS THAT THEY CAN GET PUT ON IF THEY BUY VINYL!!!!!YOU KOW WHATS EVEN WORSE ...THEY ARE GETTING PUT ON!!!!!!I'LL SEE THAT FIRST GUY PLAY AT THE
ON THE DL DEVIOUS' EP IS BEING FINISHED BUT NO DATE WHEN IT'LL BE RELEASED, CANT WAIT!!!!!NO NEWS ON WHEN THE NEXT P.O.C. ALBUM WILL BE AVAILABLE BUT THERE IS TALK OF WORK ON THE 2ND B.V.K. ALBUM!!!!!!!
MY BOY JEROME IS DON A COURSE IN SOUND ENGINEERING AND IS LOOKING TO TAKE ALLAN AND MARCO INTO THE STUDIO. I'VE ALREADY HEARD 1 TRACK FEATURING MILKMAN AND I LIKE. HOPEFULLY HE'LL FINISH THE EP SOON AND WE CAN PEEP IT.
