Waddup Township! Wassup World! We’d like to welcome everybody to a brand new decade, a new year and so on. We’ve conquered 2010, now bring on 2011- its about to be another great year for Ill Skillz, don’t say we didn’t warn you about that # YearOfTheIllSkillionaires.
But before we go way ahead of ourselves- coz that’s what happens when you stay Ill Skillin, getting live, buzzay and totally berserk all day and everyday- While we enjoyed our rise to prominence throughout the previous year, it was only right and natural that we wrap-it-off in a significant way. Through everything we had gained from the warm reception, the support and many other opportunities, we reckon that a lot of credit should go to our supporters and all-else had fit in the right place by ensuring a schedule of gig appearances by yours truly, Ill-Literate-Skill, during the last week of 2010.
Geez, a lot has happened though but as far as I can remember correctly, on Christmas Eve (24 Dec) we were invited to perform at the Party People show hosted by the illustrious DJ Kenzhero, normally taking place every last Friday of the month. It was great evening where you had a chance to see a line-up of Cape Town artists including us, 5th Floor, Mingus, ETC Crew, Souljahz Pros, killin’it on one stage. See pics below to see what you might’ve missed out on if you weren’t there lol.
ETC Crew, J. Filter on the beatbox.
See dat?? Yeeaah! Moving right along, the one which was highly-anticipated by the entire city of Cape Town along with some visitors who dominantly came from JHB, was the Head Honcho 2ndBirthday Celebration which took place on the 28 Dec at a very classy venue in Cape Town called Chevelle. OMG! What an epic night too, at the end of the night I solely dubbed a phrase which says- ‘Hip-Hop Is Beautiful’. It wasn’t your typical kinda event where you would find alota purists hip-hop fans, but considering that you came across a line-up including Ill-Literate-Skill, AKA and Khuli Chana, you know it was supposed to go down riiiight?! For a festive season night it was definitely the place to be, with party DJs on board such as the likes of DJ PH, Lloyd, Lulo Café, Switch, Naves… just to name a few.
Anyways nuff said, check the pics below to see how it went down, but before signing off this paragraph we’d like to congratulate Head Honcho Clothing Label’s success and achievements. We literally came up in the game together and we’ve witness their growth which eventually turned into a knack of dominance. Lets keep it moving family!
Yep! Great week indeed. Back into our own territory, our in-house events operation, Ill Skillz Exclusives was the last gig left to finish-off the marathon. We booked Zula Bar on the 30 Dec to host it and to showcase our incredible live performance we’re well-known for. Also thanks to our guests who joined us that night namely, DJ Raiko, Emcee Camo (5th Floor), Mingus (Writers Block) and also ETC Crew… good lookin fam.
