Friday Night Mics @ Spike Hill Hype: DXA

Blaqbook.com’s “Friday Night Mics” showcase is this Friday, Feb 8th at Spike Hill. Before every showcase we like to grab a few of the artist and give you a hint as to exactly what you’re in for.

DXA-Vintage New York Hip Hop sound redefined through the words and minds of those who grew up in the heart of New York City, and influenced heavily by the expression of the Golden era of Rap Music. Knocking beats and versatile flows delivered astutely, DXA embodies the gritty and fun of being the core of the apple.

Friday Night Mics @ Spike Hill Hype: Jonifin Marvin

Blaqbook.com’s “Friday Night Mics” showcase is this Friday, Feb 8th at Spike Hill. Before every showcase we like to grab a few of the artist and give you a hint as to exactly what you’re in for.

Formerly a member of Red IDentity and SquadZilla, Jonifin Marvin a.k.a. King Geoffree reemerges on the Philly hip hop scene as a solo artist. Having been born in St. Catherine, Jamaica and being raised in Philadelphia, PA has created a fiery flow in this multi-faceted artist. Unbound by any genre, Jonifin transitions on stage between magnetic hip hop lyrics, to entrancing reggae vibes, to smooth soul vocalization. Inspired by late 80’s/early 90’s lovers rock, and roots and culture reggae, coupled with being influenced by hip hop monsters such as Redman, Wu-Tang Clan, B.I.G., and Blackstar, Jonifin Marvin has been a student of music during great eras.
Now associated with the TreeHouse-Coalition, Jonifin with all his contagious energy is set to engage audiences both live on stage and through their speakers. You can expect commanding beats and vocals on every track; truth and sincerity in every lyric.

Friday Night Mics @ Spike Hill hype: ASPCP

At blaqbook’s last hip hop showcase, ASPCP opened. It was super early and no one was really out of work yet. Although, the crowd was light they still did they’re thing and I was able to capture some great footage of them. The footage created some buzz amongst my interweb peers.

So we decided to bring them back for this showcase and give them a well deserved later show time. Recently the Philly youngsters dropped this new track “Four Horsemen”. This new school of hip hop are bringing intellect to table. Before hip hop was more about money, women, sex, etc. I’m not saying I didn’t and don’t love it like the next man.

I am saying the dialogues and rhyme schemes the Badass’s, Tyler’s, and ASPCP’s of the world are coming with are wise far beyond their years. Come see them live this Friday at Spike Hill during blaqbook’s Friday Night Mic’s” showcase.

The show is at capacity as far as the Facebook invites are concerned, so if you want guaranteed admission grab a ticket from the Spike Hill website here. Hope to see you Friday!
