It was great meeting all these amazing artists and having this event. It was also a great night for me since Omar Offendum dropped in to the club and actually took the stage & performed 4 songs from his epic solo album "SyrianamericanA" . The night featured MC Zoog, Malikah, RGB who also took the stage & performed! along side other MC's as well . We also had a great visit by Bootie Brown (The Pharcyde) ; they did perform a night before with the Gorillaz!
It was a night filled with positive energy and love, I could feel it. It also marked the first time that Hanouneh (a member of the 961 Underground family) performed in the Middle East. People loved what she had to offer!
For me supporting these artists is very crucial to the scene especially in Arab World. People have to know that there is great talent everywhere, you just have to open your eyes & ears. Big up to all the artists that made this event possible and they surely rocked that night. It was a real honor having RE-VOLT's first event in Beirut and I look forward to working with more artists in the very near future. I also would like Basement management for all their support.
Hip Hop has no boundaries, we had people from Lebanon, Syria, Egypt,Saudi Arabia, Sweden, USA performing on ONE stage!. Its a statement that these guys are making and for me to support them and let the public know more about them is exactly what I want.
Video shots are coming soon (in the works) had some techinical difficulties with that (first event haha shit happens) it was also a learning experience for me in so many ways. I will take what I learnt from this event to my second one inshalla.
I appreciate your support and look forward for RE-VOLT to be in a city near you soooon!
