Rocksteady Crew 32nd Anniversary Concert: Photos

So like I said in the last post on July 26th, 2009 I was invited to perform at the 32nd annual celebration for the World Famous Rock Steady Crew. Every year the last weekend of July RSC takes time to celebrate with a series of events, B Boy/ B Girl Battle, Workshop, Celebrity Softball / Basketball Game, and back in the day there used to be an Emcee battle element, that doesn’t happen anymore.

This year scheduled performers included Sean Price, Masta Ace & ED O.G., Tanya Morgan, U God, Grand Puba, Biz Markie, Roxanne Shonte, Blaq Poet, Myself – Señor Kaos, Tiye Pheonix, Jeru The Damaja, and MORE. OH DID I MENTION THIS CONCERT WAS FREE?!!

During the day I snapped a couple pics check it.

Set list by the stage. I rocked early in the day, which was a blessing cause of the weather… you’ll see later, stay tuned.

ESCAPE FROM ROCKSTEADY!!!

Aiiiiiight like I’ve been saying the day started off great, then all of sudden around 6pm, the sky got REAL dark, these clouds came in, the wind picked up, and before you knew it MONSOON!

Blaq Poet and Dj Premier were on stage, a lot of cats were backstage getting ready to rock, the show was reaching it’s apex. As Poet was performing it started raining, some people started leaving, while others stayed and chilled. Then the lightning started hitting, the rain got stronger, and they pulled the plug on the show. Even once they shut the show down there was still hundreds of people in the crowd who weren’t moving!!!

Meanwhile backstage, people were running for cover in any tent they could, people were crawling under the stage to keep dry, I climbed on a nearby picnic table and took cover there.

The rain came down HEAVY for a good 30 mins. When it was finally over, the ground was literally flooded. There was a good 4 inches of water on the ground. Cats was ruining they sneakers walking threw it. I chilled for a while, when I noticed C Rayz Walz making an escape for it in a trash bag outfit. LOL

As I was coming up with a plan to get from this picnic table to dry land, Cormega came from the stage, and put these chairs together and made a path. Genius!!! I helped him find a path outta there, then followed the chairs right to the end.

End of the day, I made out alive, with dry kicks! :) I linked with the homie Mazzi and we ended up driving damn near to Connecticut to find food. Lol. What a day, what a day.
