SNAV checked in and updated us on the East Coast happenings. This past week he attended the J Dilla Foundation's "Give Back" Benefit Show and hung out with Mr. Black Chukkas Gilbere Forte, 9th Wonder and others. Take a look at "Give Back" after the jump.
I got a call to come to check out a show at SOBs. The show was to support the J Dilla Foundation. If you don’t know J Dilla was one of the greatest producers of our time, working with greats such as De La Soul, Q – Tip and list goes on. Google him you will be happy.
I got a chance to go backstage and get with Mr. Black Chukka man himself Gilbere Forte. There was definitely a lot of Vans backstage, which was a good thing to see. I caught up with 9th Wonder famous producer that worked with Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Little Weezy and many more.
I got a chance to give 9th Wonder some clean white OTW Bedfords in a 13, that’s right 13. On the bill that night was also Murder Mook From Ruff Ryders, Sky Zoo & Nitti Sky.
It was time to hit the stage. The crowd started pouring in and there was a great vibe in the air. Jasmine Salono was on the tables. It’s always good to see a beautiful woman on turntables.
Gibere was performing and I saw a pair of OTW Bedfords in the corner I was like is he going to change his shoes halfway through his performance? Then right before he did his song “Black Chukkas” he did a giveaway for the people in the crowd. Once he said he was giving away a pair of OTWs the crowd roared.
To close the night we got a chance to hear 9th Wonder on the 1s and 2s. What a great night, good music is still out there and OTW was in the house to be a part of it.
