@BazaarRoyale @GhettoMetal Recap @SOBs Oct 11th




Last night at SOB's in NYC Bazaar Royale held his monthly showcase 'GHETTOMETAL'.  Featuring some really amazing talent and a few surprises. Bazaar invited some fierce ladies to rock the mic like Niki Darlin, Likwuid, Shyvonne, Jasmine Solano,  Raye6 and Tess. These ladies tore the house down! Do yourself the favor and click on their name to follow them. It's important to support upcoming artist and local acts. There is so much talent in this city we need to keep spreading the love.  The crowd was even more hype when they learned that emcee Peter Gunz and reggae artist Patra were in the building. GhettoMetal represents Hip-Hop, Rock, Alternative, Reggae, Country.... you name it, I felt like I heard a little bit of it all. A diverse crowd, it was a melting pot of styles and it all seemed to work. They also had vendors selling art, t-shirts, jewelry and the nail polish company Ginger and Liz was giving out manicures! I know right? Totally unexpected but such a nice treat. The night was hosted by the lovely TV/Radio Personality, Jenelle Simone. The surprise special guest was Vita, remember her? She had a few hits in her Murder Inc. days and came to show some love to GhettoMetal audience.  It was a great night all around. Shout out to The Source  and Jones  for supporting the event and giving out free magazines. So next time a GhettoMetal show comes around you must attend!  


 




IN CASE YOU HAVEN'T HEARD.... Peep this video by Bazaar Royale "REBEL IN ME".
Not only is he talented but he is constantly finding ways to support others and that's so Circa '95!

Artist Spotlight: Majestik Originality "JUST LISTEN" (@majestik723)



Album Title: Just Listen
Released:    10.04.2011

Track Listing:
01. Just Listen (Feat: Nisha Asnani)
02. Should I?
03. Who Remembers
04. Muddy Waters
05. Dear Lyrical Princess
06. Sick Sixth
07. Bout 2 Kno (Feat: SoSoon)

10. Thank You

After years since his last attempt at putting out an album, Majestik Originality has finally released his new album “Just Listen”. This album is a conceptual project which was dedicated to the smooth & very lyrical gold era of HipHop. It has a very 90’s appeal, yet never feels out dated or immature. The goal of this album from the mind of Majestik Originality, was for his audience both old & new to have an opportunity to “Just Listen” to the lyrical ability he possesses. Showcasing his range of topics from touching on social issues, to being straight lyrical with a bit of ego mixed in, to story telling, and much more. This album which is 10 tracks full of lyrical goodness was prepared, cooked, and served with you (the listener) in mind. So without any further description, you are cordially invited to step into the lyrical world of Majestik Originality and “JUST LISTEN”.
