SMOKER’S CLUB FESTIVAL

The Smoker’s Club Festival experience is more of a paradise than a membership. Tailored entirely for the Californian smoker culture, everything from the lineup to the food proves that. With some legendary performances from headliners such as Wiz Khalifa and Kid Cudi, this event is impossible to pass up even for the average concert goer. The diverse arrangement of artists shows that these people know their crowd and every type of sound they love. There’s something for everyone with artists like Mac Miller, Lil Skies, and Dom Kennedy. Based in the hip-hop heavy area of Long Beach every artist that comes through shows love to the OG’s such as Snoop Dogg and the new comers like Vince Staples. Even if you don’t take part in the smoking activities some artists will even share from their supply as well. As someone that went alone I found the crowd and it’s people to be extremely friendly as far as festivals go. They all came for a good experience with some of their favorite artists playing classics and older mixtapes. The buzz for this festival grew the moment the line-up was announced and I’m sure many are impatiently waiting to see what they have up their sleeve for next time.

DE LA SOUL RELEASES REVEALING VIDEO FOR ROYALTY CAPES FEATURING GINA LORING FROM THEIR GRAMMY-NOMINATED ALBUM AND THE ANONYMOUS NOBODY

 

Legendary hip hop trio De La Soul releases the latest video from their Grammy-nominated album And The Anonymous Nobody… available today on Apple Music, Vevo and YouTube. The song “Royalty Capes,” featuring Gina Loring is the latest single from the album to get a video treatment. The powerful visual begins with Dave revealing his medical struggles with congestive heart failure and having to wear a life vest in case of an emergency.

“I’m ready just to get back to the stage,” Dave says in the music video. “I miss that. I love traveling. I love being around my guys. I want that back.”

Directed by J Anders Urmacher, who also worked with De La Soul on “Drawn,” the video is an ode to De La Soul’s perseverance as it follows the trio across their world tour. Shot in beautiful locations around Nice and Sete in France; Rotterdam, Holland; Toronto, Canada; London, England; and Los Angeles and New York City in the United States, the bands live intensity and passion is on full display.

“Royalty Capes” is the latest video from De La Soul’s groundbreaking album And The Anonymous Nobody…, their first album in eleven years. Using a revolutionary strategy of crowdfunding, De La Soul crafted a triumphant return and merged their longstanding fans with a new generation of hip hop lovers. The “Royalty Capes” video displays the large reach of De La Soul’s audience, paying tribute to their live shows and tour life.

“Royalty Capes,” produced by Dave aka Plug Too and mixed by Bob Power, was one of the first songs recorded during early jam sessions for and the Anonymous Nobody. Recording started at The Bomb Shelter and perfected at historic Vox Studios, NYC with an unorthodox 9 bar loop of saxophone slowed down and reconstituted for Pos and Dave.
