I remember seeing this battle back in the day. My boy Sleep and I had made the long trek out to NYC for Rock Steady Anniversary. I bought a breaks mixtape from the man himself. This was the day that he got the Grandmaster title, if I remember correctly.

I just kinda love this nonsense.
Topr w/ GFE
Mercury Lounge, 9pm
You wouldn’t think that I’d be excited to see someone that my then girlfriend (now wife!) had to tell they had to take a shower before the could crash on our couch again. But I am. Topr is coming to NYC for a show. Although I’m pretty sure we can avoid central booking this time, one never knows what will happen when he’s in town. That’s another chapter in my un-written book.
Dzine (who was pictured below) made a boat for the Venice Biennial this year. This is one heckuva boat!
The boat has a total of 9 TV screens. 22 speakers with lights. 8 amps. A Chevy chrome engine with Neon Lighting. Original 1963 Chrome trim and side mirrors from a Chevy Impala. Custom bucket seats, Ostrich leather interior with religous fabric. State of the art Pioneer CD/DJ equipement with Alpine touch screen videos. A laser light show and a smoke machine. Every three inches of the boat (even the steering wheel and turn key to start the boat) is completely new and custom.”
