For the people that were snuggled up in their comforters this past Saturday instead of displaying disorderly conduct on Elm Street, that nightmare you dreamt is reality.
K.MC really did kill the dreams of rapper hopefuls with his song, “Boy Stop” featuring Lou Charle$ in a more gruesome defeat than Freddie Cougar or Jason could have ever demonstrated. Lou Charle$ and J. Mack told the other guys to get out of their kool-aid and Jon Connor ruffled a few feathers with the cheeky song, “Don’t Fall in Love.”
K.MC and Lou Charle$ represented for Funky Town better than KC and The Sunshine Band once did and really made a name for the often-labeled cow town. K.MC’s stage presence and progressive music depth has noticeably made leaps and bounds. “K.I.L.L.A. (Famous)” and the “Bounce That” freestyle gave the gargantuan stereo system and eardrums of spectators a workout with the relentless bass and distinct production. His newest mixtape, “Laptop and Voicemails” shall hit the information highway by the end of the summer.
Lou Charle$ was on a quest like that one famous tribe to get diggy with it for many new fans during his well-received song, “Your Son.” It was great change of pace compared to the fast-paced songs that other artists performed. His relaxed demeanor and high level of confidence on the stage was commendable according to amiable onlookers bobbing their heads. Those who enjoy honest, but fun hip-hop should download, “Rehab is For Quitters.” You’re Welcome.
Jon Connor closed out the show with a performance equal to the excitement demonstrated during the last freestyle battle seen in “8 Mile” starring his “Great Lakes State” neighbor, Eminem. Residing from Flint, Michigan, Connor still understood that the size of expectations the audience would have would be even greater than Charles Dickens.
While drinking Simply Lemonade and sporting his usual trademark, black beanie, he verbally threw punches at the current hip-hop movement in saying, “rappers are happily playing the game without a strategy” during the song, “Artist 16 Bars.” Connor’s songs revolved around controversial topics such as, the difference between promiscuous women and ladies that can be taken seriously, love, and “getting cabbage on the regular” in reference to money and not vegetables. Connor made a lot of fans at SXSW back in March, and now created additional ones at 2826 Arnetic. He loves the state that produces NBA champions, NASA controllers, and weirdos on the street of sixth due to the readily available Pappadeaux locations.
“I love Houston, I love Dallas, I love Austin, I love the people, and I love the music down here. Texas y’all can go ahead and adopt me,” Connor jokingly said.
Connor would like another excuse to come back to Texas like Bowling for Soup, and with his new project “, Jon Connor as Vinnie Chase Season 2,” set to release in August, there may be salvation for us all.
In the words of Connor, “I hope you got the message, this is epic.”
