CONCERT: Live-N-Direct returns with MOBB DEEP, GHOSTFACE & RAEKWON [May 12]


Its been like three years since Prodigy got canned but he’s home now and back behind the Mobb Deep controls trying to get those gears turning one more time along with his homie, Havoc. Mobb Deep wasn’t on the best terms with some fans at the time The P got bagged because of whatever reason you want to pick. But we all keep that slim hope alive that we’ll get a core sound out of the crew on the next run. Whatever the outcome of the new album is we don’t have to worry ourselves about the outcome of this upcoming concert. You can rest assured that they will be meticulously paging through a well arranged timeline of the Mobb classics that made them who they are today. Ghostface & Raekwon along with many of thier Wu-Tang brothers will be the razor sharp darts they always are, both with new albums under their wings to accompany the mind bending list of classics to catalog through. Tickets are now on sale so make sure you grab yours immediately because this concert is guaranteed to sell out.
. . . And stay tuned for the brand new WLND Radio that will be dropping leading up to the show featuring the intergalactic promoter himself, Peter Oasis.

The Wattstax Experience

This some some serious ad copy: “Six hours of contemporary history edited to the essence of human entertainment”.

The Wattstax lineup was stellar and I wish I could go back in time to be there.  Who can forget Rufus Thomas’s loud suit, Isaac Hayes rockin a chain shirt, and the Bar Kays putting in work on “Son of Shaft”.  I haven’t watched or listened to Wattstax in a long time, but I’m definitely due for a refresher viewing…even if it’s just to see the mega infield dancing that resembles the world’s biggest Soul Train line.  It’s not the absolute greatest shit of all time, but def worth your time if you’re not in the know.  Also, If you listen close to the record, you’re going to hear a few famous vocal samples.

For those of you on phones and garbage monitors, the album lineup is: Issac Hayes, The Staple Singers, Rufus Thomas, Albert King, Eddie Floyd, The Bar-Kays, Carla Thomas, & The Soul Children
