Hip-Hop Soulcase Recap

And all the white girls can suck my what???

I guess you had to be there to understand that line but all and all the event was beyond dopeness. I cannot continue this review without saying this first: Huge shoutout to the first lady of WTM Ashanti Jones. She is the VP of S.A.B.L.E at WPUNJ and the event was completely her doing. I have watched her slave for months and work her behind off to make it the success that it was.

Okay lets begin. Unorthodox but the headliners of the event went first. Striver's Row members Miles Hodges and Alysia Harris tore the stage up. They spit some new pieces were read but they spit some of their own classics like Cab Rides and the Morning After and Harlem. Next up were the promised performers and an open mic. The Hip-Hop SOULcase never had a dull moment. Students from Willy P showed their stuff whether it be poetry, hip-hop or even neo-soul. MotaRaps, Olawumi, D.O.P.E, Khalil Jibran, & Sir Moore kept the crowd entertained throughout. There was nothing but good vibes when they all hit the stage. The crowd really responded to a freestyle by Khalil Jibran and you can see below.

Shortly afterwards, Conway & Mayday (D.O.P.E) got the crowd hype with their live performance of She Likes (off Orientation), and Sir Moore finished off the show with songs of the August Rush EP over the classic Fugees song, Killing Me Softlyinstrumental. All in all, this was a dope showcase and everyone really enjoyed themselves. Keep on the lookout for the next event and clips from this one. Always remember where you heard it first. Right here on What's the Movement?!
