System Sound Check # 5- M'dears + Career Day @ St. Margaret Mary School + SQA Prom + Supreme Saturdays @ Funky Garcias
Last Saturday, held it down with Randy, Liz, and Greg Mack from 94.7 The Wave at M'dears in Lakewood for their date night function! And it was Liz's 1st time having Soul Food!
Was invited by the homie Jay Styles (Oh Yeah We Talk!/100.9 The Heat/97.1 AMP Radio) to roll with him to St. Margaret Mary School in Chino this morning for their Career Day. We talked to the middle school classes about careers in radio and music, and gave them some hands on work experience. As a product of the Catholic school experience, I had flashbacks of being that age, making mixtapes by taping songs off the radio and banging on lunch table rapping with classmates. Talk about full circle. The kids had mad energy and wonder and a joy to have conversations with. Plus, I talked to them about the importance of using headphones, how not to commit "train wrecks" and wore a De La Soul shirt doing it all.
Last night, I was once again rocking with Synergy Quantum Academy, this time at the Bilmore Hotel for their Senior Prom ! Was pulling out crazy blend ideas tonight that got double takes: try an "Ayo" remix with vocals from RiRi's "BBHMM" on it, to Celia Cruz's "La Vida Es Un Carnaval" to Drake's "The Motto." Hip-Hop, Pop, RnB, Latin, Alternative, everything AND the kitchen sink. That's how HFP Sound System do. Thank you again to everyone (Wud up Matt Duncan?!)!
And at the same time last night, about hour and a half down the coast, Lord was holding it down at Funky Garcia's in the Gaslamp District in San Diego with the homie DJ Cutlos Supreme for his "Supreme Saturdays." When I texted him this morning asking how things went if he has any pictures from last to share with you all, his response back to me was "Unfortunately nah. Shit was so turnt up last night, lol!" Goes to show you, when HFP is in your town, this is what to expect, lol!
