Video: Impromptu ‘Hoodfab’ @ Cabrini Green w/ L.E.P. Bogus Boys

MTV’s Buttahman was in Chicago this weekend handling some business, including some features on L.E.P. Bogus Boys and the Infared Music crew.  I’ll have more info on that shortly, but for the time being, watch an impromptu episode of Buttahman’s Hoodfab, which was made popular on MTV Jams, live from Cabrini Green.  I’m still looking to battle Buttahman in hip-hop trivia.  Next time.  Next time.

On Saturday we set up shop at SoundScape studios and went to work with none other than DJ Babu of Dilated Peoples and The Beat Junkies. DJ Babu is a hero of mine, and a true influence. It was an honor and a pleasure to work with him on a Closed Session. In the past, the emcee/singer has been the main feature, and they cycle through our Closed Sessions catalog of production. With Babu, the script was flipped, and Babu got his choice of Chicago emcees and called in ADaD, GLC, and Rhymefest to get down. The session last well over 12 hours, took place in two studios, and included appearances by Mikkey Halsted, YP, Big Homie D.O.E. and others. Here’s a quick preview captured with the Flip Cam including a smoke session, and battle between ADaD and Rhymefest, and more…
