Wow no updates suck right? Rejoice! The dry spell is over and here is the first long overdue post. We’ve been fortunate to have our paths cross with a few of the very talented artists on Chocolate Industries straight out of Chicago. Back in September, Alicia and I ventured down to the heart of Boston’s college territory to Northeastern where The Cool Kids killed it. They put on such an electric live show and seriously pissed off security. I moreso felt like I was at a punk rock show then a hip hop show. Besides playing my favorite track, “What It Is”, Mikey and Chuck hung out with us for a bit after the show. Mikey schooled all who came before him at Super Smash Bros and the beatings were merciless. We’re working on getting an interview with these guys as their newest record, “Bake Sale” has been praised by critics and fans alike.
October graced us with Hollywood Holt, Kid Cudi, and Million Dolla Mano making the final stop of Hollywood’s tour here in the bay. Unfortunately, our favorite man on the moon had fallen ill the night prior and wasn’t able to perform. We wish him a speedy recovery. Because of craptastic rules, I wasn’t able to shoot photos of the sweet show that these Chi-town super-stars brought to the stage and the energy that the guys had all night was unstoppable. I will be putting a video together of parts of the show. Hollywood just released a great mixtape which is available for free download on his website. Mano produces a great deal of the tracks so they are full of juke goodness. Keep on the lookout, this might be the start of a lot of encounters with Retro and Chocolate Industries.
