Wild like rock stars....

Who smash guitars...

Friday played out like an old Tony Touch mixtape. 50 "mc's" signed up (43 performed). Simply bananas.

Those that got on stage, those that came to watch, we can't thank you enough.

As for the show, to quote Jay below, "wow". Let's face it, at this point, people are putting in better performances than some of the artists they're covering.

The show stoppers were definitely Keith and Matt's Geto Boys segment, and Mikaela, Sabrina, and co. doing "It Takes Two" and "The Humpty Dance".. There were more people on stage than The E Street Band and Earth, Wind, and Fire combined.

The HHK veterans all came out and did their thing.. Brother Jim made his triumphant return with "Intergalactic", Tanya (HAPPY BIRTHDAY) flipped "Ya Mama", Jon had the "awwww" moment of the night during "PSA",then set the record for most shout outs following a HHK performance (the previous record was zero), Van baptised "911 is a Joke" (I'm still looking for the clock homie), Charlie did his thing on the GangStarr classic "You Know My Steez", Goodwin brought the night to a close at 2:30am with "Renegade", and this paragraph would not be complete without mentioning Abe's return to the "Brooklyn Zoo".. Also worth noting that if this was Little League, Abe would be pulling in every sportsmanship award..If it was school, he'd be getting an "E" in "works well with others"...Dude is in the front row supporting everyone like Kane and Rakim formed a super group on stage.

Dashaun killed "Juice"..He also became somewhat of a hired gun throughout the evening, aiding on a couple of tracks...He also made reference to hooking me up with a Warriors t-shirt, and I will take him up on that offer (I'm an XL)..Jeff is cementing his status as Professor B.I.G. after "Dead Wrong"..Speaking of B.I.G, have to give praise due to Derek for "Ten Crack Commandments"..Lyrical Arsonist's dedication to Idaho potatoes (Ms.Fat Booty) came off flawless as well..And Robert Downey (look in the pics'll be able to pick him out) slayed "Life's A Bitch"..

People are definitely going deeper into the catalogue now, and we had some songs make their debut..Che and Von Pea killed "Touch The Sky" (VP also dropped some Buckshot verses with Shadow on one of my faves, "Crooklyn"), Manny did his thing on "Made You Look" (still can't believe that's the first time that song has been done), Birin blessed "California Love",and Davina, god bless her, at 1:40am became the first person to do "Shadowboxin" (of course bro and sis had to come up and bless "Step Into A World" as well)..

Damn this thing is looooooooooong.. Let me give honorable mentions to Joe for "Dwyck", Miguel for "Money Ain't A Thing", Amy for "Mr.Wendal", Mickey and Walt for "Pop Goes The Weasel", Joell for "99 Problems", Chris for "They Want Efx", Bess and Emily with "I Got A Man", Erick with "Lose Yourself", TGREX for "Electric Relaxation", Dax for "Paul Revere", Dave for "Warning", Chuck for "G Thang", Kev for "Next Movement", Ed for "Shook Ones", Adele for "Get Down", Cheyenne for "Passin' Me Bye", Bishara with "Eric B Is President", Dave with "The What", and James and friends with the 2:15am "Scenario" wake up call.

Truly a great night...

Thanks again people..

the guy filming was taping in High Def for a cable channel called HDNet. They're doing a piece on HHK. They actually gave me the raw footage of what he shot, and once it's edited, and we have the new HHK website up and going, you'll all be able to check it out. plus brother jim, i could always hook you up with a hard copy for yourself.
