Like Mobb Deep & Lloyd Banks did on Sunday, Black Moon & Big Daddy Kane will perform albums as part of a series of Red Bull-sponsored shows. This one goes down at Southpaw in Brooklyn TONIGHT (9/29). Black Moon is focusing on their Timbs-and-backpack classic LP Enta Da Stage. Rabid fans of the LP should get to the venue early with spiral notebooks in hand to attend a Q&A session with Black Moon and Duck Down CEO Dru Ha at 5PM. The band will perform the LP in its entirety later that night backed by a six-piece band (much like they were at Rock The Bells). Juice Crew legend Big Daddy Kane will open at 8:30pm and will reportedly perform his mid-school landmarks Its a Big Daddy Thing and Long Live The Kane (which I am guessing means selections from those LPs since his set is reported to be an hour). Tickets are still on sale.
Then tomorrow (9/30), as previously mentioned, The Diplomats will play as part of the series at Best Buy Theater. And to make it more interesting, they’ll perform the greatest album to sample Winger and Starship, Diplomatic Immunity. The show lists appearances from the core of the Harlem World crew, Jim Jones, Cam’Ron, Juelz Santana and Freeky Zeeky, but the jury is still out as to whether LP guests like Freeway, Master P, Un Kasa, or DMX will make an appearance. Get your tickets while they are still available.
