The CounterParts performing live this Saturday!

Photobucket For all those looking for a refreshing taste of hip-hop in the midst of all the wackness, you gotta peep the The CounterParts. You can download their mixtape sampler "The Appetizer" for free! The CounterParts crew consists of 3 MCs (T-Know, Braelan B, Otayo Dubb) who met through hip-hop circles at UC Santa Cruz and 2 producers (Fatgums and Gamma Ray) who have been homies since they were kids drinking 40s in San Francisco. Not only are the beats bangin', but the rhymes have some insightful political commentary on society, work, and life. It's motivational music that'll you through the stress of the daily grind and help you to maintain focus on the truly important things in life. One of the really dope things about their songs is that they give love to the DJs with Fatgums and Gamma Ray bringing back DJ Premier-style phrase scratching for a lot of the hooks. Some of my personal favorites are "Luv What We Do", "Guns of Wilmas (feat. Bambu)" and "Dream Deferred". Be sure to check them out this Saturday, October 25th performing live at the Beatrock Store grand opening in Long Beach! beatrock 2 -ET
