Last week, the GWHH-Sponsored "We R Hip Hop" featured a packed bill of talented Chicago emcees on stage at Reggie's and we were on stage to bring you some up close photos to get to know some of these artists better!
Also at Pitchfork this summer was ASAP Rocky as he brought out the Mob for his performance at Union Park. Our own Stan Perry & Invisual Media Pro were on hand to document the energetic rendition of "Goldie" with multi-angles and high quality audio/visuals. You can get really close with both Rocky & the Mob as they even venture into the rockin' Pitchfork crowd. Really dig the ending so stay tuned all the way through!
There were many highlights of this year's Pitchfork Music Festival. Throngs of hip-hop fans came to see live performances from rap new school acts like Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T., Schoolboy Q, ASAP Rocky and more. I definitely enjoyed those sets. Another personal favorite unexpectedly came from The Sleighbells. They rocked. And so did Flying Lotus and the 2008ighties crew during the live Adultswim/Pitchfork afterparty sponsored Eric Andre show. Too many solid sets to mention. Comedian Hannibal Buress had me cracking up also. I would be remiss if I didn't talk about bumping into indie spitter Danny Brown before his set at Pitchfork. He's another dude who had me laughing.
My interview with the Detroit emcee was singlehandedly the most entertaining portion of Pitchfork, overall. Outside of jokes, Danny Brown spoke on progression, genuinely living in his own world, his relationship with his label, and favorite past times during Pitchfork.
Special side note: This my first post on the new Gowhere site. It's cold right? Peep my Danny Brown interview above....
"Really I just made music and I didn't care who listened to it or who didn't. And then people started, and I didn't expect to. Now I'm at Pitchfork Festival so I don't really care what go on in the hood (hahaha)..."
