Live from the rooftop of the HipHopDX building Headkrack of the Bodega Brovas freestyles on various off the cuff topics like rappers with plastic surgery, his favorite “actress”, and does one armed push ups while rhyming. Yeah, this happened.
Standout Detroit Hip-Hop outfit The Regiment members OSI and IseQold join forces with platinum credited producer Nick Speed (Danny Brown, Lloyd Banks, Talib Kweli) on this monumental new project. The trio combines witty rhymes with a signature Boom Bap sound inspired by the common ground for people and ideas at local eateries. Along with Honorable Mentions from legendary producer DJ Premier in their catalog The Regiment is not alone on this project. Live From The Coney Island also features former Aftermath signee Bishop Lamont, El Da Sensei of the legendary Newark duo Artifacts, Rhymesayers Entertainment & Soul Tools MC Toki Wright, and Detroit’s own Guilty Simpson. Released through Minneapolis based Soul Tools Entertainment.
The Coney Island is more than a local restaurant. The Coney represents Detroit on a greater scale. The Greek brothers who founded the Coney Island came to Detroit seeking opportunity and made something out of nothing. With their signature item, the Coney dog, a hotdog that was more than a hotdog, and unique to Detroit, they became legendary. Today it is a Detroit staple, a place to eat and spend time in the inner city for quick meals, hanging with friends, after the club, or to just read the paper. Every neighborhood in Detroit has a Coney Island and you could no more have one than the other. In a similar fashion, the culture, the community, and the opportunity to prosper is what this title represents.
On Saturday sept 21st, Sway and King Tech invited a few of their musician friends, some new talented M.Cs, along with a few vets to rock the mics of the Wake Up Show..
The result was Wake UP Show Un-Plugged. The Musicians had never met, rehearsed or practice together. Everything was done On The Fly. Me and Bodega got the call, above is the result.
