Hip-Hop show with my neighbors in Brooklyn

This summer I joined my neighbors to a hip-hop contest/showcase in Clinton Hill/Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn (which birthed many icons of the genre-Jay-Z, Mos Def, Big Daddy Kane, Biggie Smalls, etc..). There were 15 different acts who played two songs each, the winner getting a free recording session in my neighbors basement recording studio. Camo was trending, the dancehall performed by my neighbors as the closing act brought down the house strangely enough and the winners were a local crew of 12 who had a downbeat and super chill flow.

My friends Justin and Fewtcha (his creative spelling of "future"), both music producers in the basement studio across the street from me in Crown Heights.

This kid didn’t know who Jim Morrison was, he said he just thought it looked good. I insisted he listen to him the next day.
