DJ 3rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
March 20, 2023

Thanks for continuing to support indie rap music and the Rap Attack DJ’s.

What is good my
Hip Hop friends!!? I am back and hope all is well for you and yours as we enter month 3 of 2023. Things keep moving forward, fast sometimes.
This week’s review has two parts, the bad and the good.

Stacks Image 2140

Let’s start with the bad. The Hip Hop world suffered an enormous loss back on February 12, 2023. The one and only Trugoy the Dove, aka Plug Two, aka Dave, passed away at the age of 54. This loss was felt globally as among many iconic groups, De La Soul was certainly up there. Waves of sorrow flowed over all of us and weeks later, we are still feeling it.

On Thursday March 2, 2023, the remaining members of De La (
Pos and Maseo) were joined at Webster Hall in NYC for a tribute concert and a celebration of De La and their music. Coincidentally, De La’s first four albums were finally released to the streaming world—for sure a moment to celebrate. The evening was filled with tears and joy as many members of the Hip Hop world came out to celebrate Dave and De La’s success. Queen Latifah, Monie Love, Mike G (Jungle Brothers), Busta Rhymes, Large Professor, Dres (Black Sheep) and so many more joined Plugs One and Three on stage to perform and revel in the love being shown for Dave.

It was very emotional. I have been a De La fan since day one. I will always remember the great memories their music gave and continues to give me. I hope it’s the same for you.

The good I wanted to share with you is a concert that is scheduled to happen on Saturday April 15
th in Adelanto, CA. It is a festival that has been going on for years but this year, the celebration of Hip Hop’s 50th anniversary is for sure happening! The festival is called Rhymefest and the line-up this year is one for the ages. The festival is going to honor the culture and this year’s list of performing artists rivals most festivals that have ever been put on for Hip Hop.

Check out this list. (Mind you, they are still going to announce another headliner!!)

Dialated Peoples - Souls of Mischief - The Far Side (formally the Pharcyde) - Dead Prez - Project Blowed All Star cypher - Blu & Exile - Sage Francis - Grouch and Eligh - Mad Lion - Masta Ace and Marco Polo - Chino XL - The Shapeshifters - Wildchild and DJ Romes - Supernatural - Akil the MC - Reverie - A.F.R.O. - The Chicharones

And all of this hosted by Immortal Technique!
Are you kidding me!!!?? Do you see this line-up??
If you are able in any way to get out to Cali and see this festival, your life will improve so much!

Keep it true, keep it HIP HOP!
I wish you nothing but peace, love, and boom-bap rap music!
One love til next time!!

On Jan 10, 2023 I fell into a 7-hr diabetic coma & nearly passed away. That evening I was scheduled to do a live interview with THE BIG HOMIE TOLD ME show but for the first time in 43 years, I missed the interview & ended up in ICU.
Thx to your prayers, I'm doing fine now.
Here's the interview I recently did with THE BIG HOMIE TOLD ME show!

Thank you to my publicist BTP MEDIA & thank you Lord!
