Everyone was there for one reason and one reason only. To put on the best show possible, and to give NC hip hop a step in the right direction of artist unity. Spins played that night were by  the multi cultural DJ Shahzad. The show was hosted by Intelligently Ratchet ‘s Bishop Omega and Kaze. The dynamic duo set the tone and flow for the whole event. With their witty humor and radiant aura they set the stage for several powerhouse performances.

Mally Evans hit the stage first with his high energy club banger collaboration with Upperclass Ent., Champagne Room.They “got it poppin” for the crowd and set the dynamic for the rest of the evening.

Ethan Taylor followed next, with a guest appearance from Shame Clark , with their song No Smoke. As the intensity grew, Ethan hit all the right notes with his new single Waiting, which I am currently in the process of doing an experimental pilot run with. Breaking new singles through viral videos. (You can check the process out here>>>OurProphecy’s Viral Music Breaking. )

Mally Evans doubled back with Ethan Taylor to do a remix of Genuwine’s Pony and the ladies were in love. I’m pretty sure some panties dropped as well.

Hasina hit the stage next shutting shop down with her sexy, mesmerizing, and highly talented crew of dancers accompanied by her hypnotic music. She brought up a guest from the crowd to come up and be the center of attention for a sexy lap dance routine and the crowd went insane. Hasina definitely has the skills, intensity, and talent to be the next Janet Jackson.

3AM followed with his latest single Curtis Snow. He kept the creative and high energy flowing with a live band performing with him. Rocking the stage like a 2018 rap version of Jimmy Hendrix. Definitely an artist to be on the watch out for.

The feisty urban Latino artist Kronoz Time kept the intensity going with Plakata . Bringing a spotlight to not only NC Hip Hop but also to Latino Urban Music. He had the Family Bizness on stage and the crowd hype. I cant reiterate enough how contagious the energy was that night from all the artist.

Jooselord rushed the stage taking it over with no hesitation. His socially conscious music intensified with the realness of his soul poured out into the crowd and intensified the vibe of the event, elevating it to a higher frequency.

This whole line up you could see why each one of these artist are nominated for a Carolina Music Award. Not only did they all put on for North Carolina Hip Hop , but all the artist are from my hometown (the Bull City) Durham. All these artist had total respect for their craft . North Carolina Hip Hop needs more of this. With all the creativity, talent , web shows, DJ organizations , entrepreneurs , K97.5’s Mir. I. AM ‘s Carolina Waves , and OurProphecy Social Media Promotions backed by Bombsquad ; there is no reason why NC hip hop can not come together and rise above the negativity and ego to be a vibrant center piece for hip hop. North Carolina is going to be on the map this summer with festivals like The Art of Cool, JCole’s Dreamville Festival , and the Hopscotch Music Fest . North Carolina Hip Hop has the tools at our disposal , now let’s take full advantage of it and rise together. #ilovenchiphop
