Recap: @RapRocks [DC] with White House Band, Shyvonne, Navi, A Cool Stick, Ralphy Boy
On a hot and muggy Thursday night a small intimate crowd gathered in the indie venue Velvet Lounge to enjoy the #RapRocks concert. Some were first timers, others were veterans. This time we had White House Band, A Cool Stick, Navi and the whole damned Delegation, and Shyvonne rock the house. First up was show opener Ralphy Boy, who brought it with old school rymes and a slick flow. Then up next was Shyvonne, who brought the party vibe with her hits “MindReader” and “DAMN!”. Navi was up next, and really brought the energy an MC with a live band brings. He reminded us of an early Aesop Rock. Next up was the White House Band, using his fog/light show/guitar/rapping combination to the max. The crowd was impressed by David E Beats’ showmanship and showed it in the applause. Last but not least, A Cool Stick was up next and closed out the show with an amazing freestyle and chill acoustic set, minus a bassiest.
Overall, the concert was a success, and the people of DC are clamoring for more!
