Mikey: In an effort to raise awareness for the fight against diabetes, Hip-Hop legends KRS-One, Dres (Black Sheep), Greg Nice, and few a more performed for a benefit concert last night at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. Hosted by Michael Rappaport, Phife Dawg, and Okayplayer, the event had a line wrapped around the block all night long. But around midnight it was pretty clear who the folks came to see… minutes later Jay Electhanukkah crept out from the clusterf*ck going on backstage, that’s when I opted to climb back into the crowd for a better shot. It’s only just begun…
MissInfo: First off, big up to all the folks who performed because the threat of diabetes is such a scary thing, and it’s great to see Phife back in action. I’m not sure what makes people all mash up on a tiny stage, but big up to Mikey for thugging it out, lol. Now I heard Mel D Cole was there so I’m sure some dope images are soon to come, but I also got an email from the Keap Hope blog with their show post link. (Is this blog a Williamsburg blog? because there’s both a Keap St. and a Hope St. in the area. Hmm). Also big up to my Mighty Healthy family who were there: Denis, Drew, Damian and John.
