Peace party people as we proceed to give you what you need it’s time to move on to 2012 & say Peace to 2011. But before we blowout the candle, I feel it’s only right to do a Jerzie hip hop 2011 Rap up! So while we all watched the thrown, it’s time to watch our own!
This year was very positive and productive for Jerzie; we watch dope shows, hot artist emerge, and most of all Better Communication. Raw Form Sundays gave us rare grooves, beats, handcrafted cuts, melodic blends all spear headed by hip hop veterans Rhino, Brown bum and Porno. With the unfortunate closing of the Armory Tavern earlier in the year, it severed as eviction notice to all of New Jersey’s finest hip hop superheros. But thanks to people like KGB, Sol Zalez, &Phace for keeping the NJ hip hop movement going at the Lucky7 bar with strong shows & driven open mics. Hahzy RU & Lethal prove to be the L.ON.S for the street battles. Also cleaning up the scene was the Custodian of Record taking his garden variety show on the road spreading love by showcasing talent down in Trenton. Big shout to the Pryme Prolifik, Daniel Joseph, Sheena She & Poet for their hard work pushing the Jersey Hip Hop agenda. Good promotion, artist support & social media were the recipe for Success.
