Raekwon, Prodigy, Ghostface Killah Dominate Stage at AllHipHop.com 15-Year Anniversary Party
While we have The Source, XXL and Complex to feed our glossy magazine needs, AllHipHop.com was one of the first online destinations hip-hop heads to find out about the latest news and music in the genre. And after 15 years, the site is still going strong with its own cult following and loyal fan base. To celebrate the milestone, ‘Grouchy’ Greg Watkins, Chuck ‘Jigsaw’ Creekmur and Steve ‘Raze’ Julien gathered some of hip-hop’s finest from the veterans who shaped the genre as well as the new voices who are set to continue the culture in S.O.B.’s on Thursday night (Oct. 17).
“We did hip-hop for them, and we are not gonna stop,” Julien tells the crowd, referring to rappers like Raekwon and Prodigy. “We’ll go another 50.”
The night featured young rappers like Atlanta’s Two-9, Ken Rebel, Chicago’s Caleb James, Doe B, Cory Mo, Bishop Nehru, who hails from New York. While everyone enjoyed the new talent, they all went wild for Prodigy who announced that Mobb Deep is currently in the studio working on new material.
Raekwon closed out the show with selection of songs that made everyone nostalgic. And to make his performance even more epic, he invited Ghostface Killah to the stage. The two performed snippets of Wu Tang Klan tracks, but their cover of ‘Got Your Money’ by the late ODB was the sweetest end to the night.
