Rims and Timbs aka The Cool.

So, went to see Mr. Fiasco last night, as I posted early on. Out of all three shows I have seen prior to this one, this one was the worse, energy wise. 4th to last show on the tour, maybe he was tired? Possibly, ofcourse on the outside looking in, we really dont know how hard these people word. He did say he was a little sick, so ill give him a pass this time. The performance was still good. He did do a shit load of songs from Food&Liqour that I could have done without, then again, that album imo is better then The Cool. I am stil listening to The Cool trying to figure out which album is better or if its even comparable. Guest appearences from the talented Mathew Santos, the talented and beautiful Nikke Jean, and F&Fs own, Gemstones and Bishop. Gemstones = Gemini?!?!?!?!*shrugs*
but who could forget about the unreleased tracks from Lupes white rapper alias I think his name was, PO PO K – RIMS AND TIMBS, RIMS AND TIMBS!!! LMFAO comedy

Overall it was a GREAT show.

At concerts, I tend to give the opening acts a chance. Just to see if there is some REAL talent beneath the surface…WRONG!!! HAHAHA nah nah, dont get me wrong, the 1st act was dope, which was done by a New York artist, hold on, a FEMALE NY artist that goes by the name of Amanda Diva. For a long time, I was straight Lauryn Hill (till her life issues got in the way) and Rah Digga PERIOD, I could say MC Lyte, Salt, Rox, and so on but, that wasnt my time. I was still in my mothers womb. Even though I appreciate the DOPE shit they started in the culture, I grew up with Ms. Hill and Rah Digga, and Jean Grae here and there…Amanda Diva might have brought me back and put hope into my heart telling me that there are some ill female lyricist out there. Not only was she beautiful and stylish, she knew what the fuck to do with the Mic as well as how to put on a show! BIG UPs to Amanda Diva, you get mad love from RMJ.

sorry for the blurry pics.

aint she a cutie? lol thats her most current work. It is now available on Itunes, and I honestly can say, its a good purchase stepping into something new. She will definatly be gettin some spins in whatever im mixin…


check her myspace and take a listen.

Going back to what I was saying about the opening acts, this one cat really gave DC a bad name claiming hip hop and spittin that garbage, but, here on RMJ we are not here to bash but to help. So, we let’em live.

back to the show. Lupe’s opening act was rediculous! Talk about an act that really livens up the crowd for the main attraction. You would have thought they were trying to steal the show. I mean you had a good mix of Rock, Jazz, Raggae AND Hip-Hop. This cat goes by the name of Optimus (along with his band). He hails from California and it seems that Lupe hand picked Optimus to open up for him on this tour, and I must say that was a damn good pick. Friend even purchased the CD so ill let people know how it is soon. If its anything like there performance, check them out. Shits DOPE.

check his myspace out @ Optimus

now for the main attraction. Lupe, his friends, and band…

So as soon as dude steps on the stage, ofcourse he got on some shit that im like wtf. I mean im into fashion very much, so im trying to break down the fit cause the Jacket was redic. I hate Supra Skytops especially in that corny ass GOLD colorway but he freaked it, cant fake. Custom made Dr. Romanelli flight jacket made especially for Mr. Fiasco??? Looks so but I still could be wrong. He performed songs from Food&Liqour in this fit.

SO ILL!!! Im really gonna say its Dr. Romanelli on this one…I dont know what collection but if you followed his work, it looks like something he created. Gold Coast Shrine Club???

what can I say I like the freakin Jacket. LMAO

then, they take a break, but NOOOO…NOT Gemstones. He put on a small show for the crowd during intermission.

Lupe back to the stage…to me, the clothes change was the transition and growth from Food&Liqour, to The Cool. Sporting a blk leather studded jacket looks like something from Neighborhood or even False. Guilty Brotherhood tee under, Dita glasses, Dior Waxed denim (geez) and some german military inspired boot/hi-tops that were BAD ASS. Any high end european designer could have made those, they looked like Dior but I dont know!!! What can I say, I know my shit…somewhat. lol

well. there you have it. it was a great show…

in conclusion, I dont think I can do these types of shows any longer, not when the artist has gained such popularity. Fans act like fools foreal. I LOVE music, and adore alotta peoples work but I swear, people go above and beyond to show their appreciation, and quite frankly, its kind of sickning. Ill do hip hop shows/battles, and shows with people under the radar, but I dont think I can do anymore of these shows. Girl in front of me did not know how to act…smh.

p.s. damn theres alot of free advertisement on this page! lol its all good, as long as its for a good reason!

Fugees – Cowboys (Just listen to how Ms. Hill and Digga MURDER the track!!!)
