In honor of today’s Paid Dues Festival (which I won’t be attending) here are a few songs from the artists.
If anyone out there on the West Coast is going to the show and wouldn’t mind throwing together a review or sending a couple pictures our way we would appreciate it.
Atmosphere’s last album very quietly hit number 5 on the Billboard 200 last year, fueled by the single “You”. This is a video for another song, “Shoulda Known”, and it is a favorite of ours, even creeping into our list of 2008’s top videos.
Brother Ali is truly one of the most fascinating rappers on the underground scene. And he’s a beast on the mic. This is “Take Me Home”.
Cage has another downer of an album coming out later this year. This is “Shoot Frank” from his last one.
B-Real is on this year’s lineup. Is this a hint that Cypress Hill may be headlining Rock the Bells? Fingers crossed.
Other Paid Dues highlights include Living Legends, with all original members, and the West Coast debut of Slaughterhouse.
