The other night, I took a ride out to the Cage in Newark, for another amazing night brought to you by the dope folks at Thread Imprint. I was stoked to come back after the Vibes After Dark event and especially with a lineup stacked with acts I’ve been a digital fan of. The night brought to the stage- St Joe Louis, Bianca Arielle, Highclass Hoodlums, Bianca Arielle and Sunny Gang.
It was the perfect storm of energy and ambiance. Kicking off with St Joe Louis, a trio of hip-hop excellence. The soul, the rhymes, the flow is all uncut goodness. They controlled the crowd in a head nodding trance. Bianca Arielle came heavy with some moving, thought provoking truth in spoken word. Highclass Hoodlums revved the crowd up with masterful wordplay and their addictive bounce. The combo of Praise Proda and Infinitee is tough to match anywhere. Finally Sunny Gang took the stage with a bang. Full of energy, attitude and passion they turned the venue out. The pit was a ruckus- the crowd was in a frenzy. There were blurs of Dre Doso & Brain Orchestra launching around the room like cannonballs and people bashing the hell out of each other with pool noodles, all the while Sunny Gang provided the perfect soundtrack.
Filling the void- sounds were provided by DJ Fresh, DJ Dana Lu, TVH, Skaboo, Public Housing Authority. Thread Imprint put together another next level show, showcasing amazing Jersey-bred talent. Each act brought sounds that echoed the character of North Jersey. The vibes were right and I’m stoked to catch more of all these artists.
Go follow and support!
