Hip Hop for Hope a Give Back Event

In the spirit of the holidays, it was great for local artists to come together in support of children. It was Hip Hop for Hope sponsored by Antimosity AKA Ant Avery at Rock Island in Old Town. In addition to the modest cover charge, everyone was asked to bring a toy or a warm piece of clothing for a child. While the crowd was light, the place was full of holiday spirit. A long list of local entertainers included Samuel David, Tony Adams, Swerve and Dricks. D.J Gabby and Bearfoot were on the tables between sets. All-in-All, it’s the kind of event we’d like to see more of – Wichita’s party crowd giving back.

Feddi World Entertainment Packs the House

Across town, it was a whole different kind of set. The house was packed at a Touch of Class for a Feddi World sponsored event. It was the kick off for A.D. Koli’s Street Famous Tour and it was obvious he has fans; they were showing him lots of love. The crowd knew the songs and were rapping right along, keeping up word for word.

Also performing that evening was the Y.N.I.C Crew and DJ Fluid was in the house. The Partytime Crew’s only problem with the event was the smoke. We’re all about smoking restrictions. Dang you go home smelling like a fireplace. That shortened our time at the venue, but it didn’t seem to bother others. When we left, they were still partying like there was no tomorrow.

Ruff Ryders Annual All White Party a Great Grown Folks Event

Now this was a nice joint. We loved it! It was a nice grown folks — not old folks — event and the dance floor stayed full the whole night. The DJ had something to do with that. He was, playing all the songs to keep people on their feet. We kind of like these themed events, even though it was an all-white party way past Labor Day. But white was an easy enough theme to follow – way easier than royal blue (just saying) — so almost everyone played along.

Besides just a party, the event served as an initiation for new Ruff Ryders members. The initiation had a fraternity feel with the new members “crossing” over. It was a nice touch and actually added to evening. After the initiation there was a performance by Demetrius Dixon, aka Dixon. Brotha was good.

This crowd was nowhere near partying at closing time, so they announced an after party at the Black Sabbath Motorcycle Clubhouse. Hey it was way past our bed time. But the out of towners — there were folks visiting form OKC, Denver and California — and some local diehards weren’t ready to quit. We’ll save that level of energy for the Ruff Ryders’ three-day annual event in June. Can hardly wait.
