Wednesday, Aug 24th - Fortune Sound Club
Dom Kennedy, Jay Kin, District 36, Seko, Rico Uno, Marvel, and KutCorners packed the house for Fortune Sound Club’s Freshest 4th Year Anniversary. A night of bomb beats and dope rhymes connected by classic and new jams. The night started with District 36 adding a new polish to a range of samples, making songs like Alicia Key’s “Unthinkable” take on the flavour of a street battle. After a sick set of DJ’s and crowd favs, from the likes of Busta Rymes to Jay Z, Jay Kin conquered the stage. Sneakers and Video Games on hand, Jay Kin rocked his original Nintendo chain with beats and tracks to match. An already saturated, loud, hype crowd were next graced with the first Vancouver performance by West Coast Rapper Dom Kennedy. Kennedy did it big and left the audience begging for more, living up to his lyrical claim “the man with the most ain’t always in the front, so hit that west side and we’ll give ya what ya want.” All in all a night for hip hop heads true to lyrics, samples and an incessant need to vibe to the beat.
