We Were There: Bacardi “Dress To Be Free” Event Featuring Cardi B

Bring on the flowing drinks, the DJing nuns, and the only person that can make a Cruella De Vil costume look ever so chic, Cardi B. October 31, Cardi B delivered a spotless performance and kept the entire crowd on their toes while they rapped alongside her. The Bronx native has continued to make waves across the world with her unique sound and lyrics. Cardi B is breaking down the walls of misogyny in the music industry one song at a time. She is a modern-day feminist who through her lyrics inverts the power structure and empowers women to play a dominant role. She is fierce and will stop at nothing until she reaches the top.

The venue chosen for this event complemented the artist well. The House of Yes is a “hole in the wall” venue located in Bushwick, Brooklyn in the warehouse district. The interior décor is far from what it might seem from its rough exterior. The event was sponsored by Bacardi who encouraged the theme: “Some Dress to fit in. Others Dress Free”- Bacardi. Cardi B embodies this motto. She constantly has broken-down barriers of social norms and is known for her unique style and attitude. It is clear; this is just the beginning for Cardi B. After all, she is all about the money moves.

Kaiju Returns With A Dope New Anime Crossover “Glasscase”

He’s back at it!

Kaiju The Unconquerable is back; one of the best-kept secrets on AAHH continues with his string of high-quality visuals with his latest Anime crossover concept, “Ep.9: Glasscase.” This time around, he plays the role of Sie — a transporter finds himself in a tight situation when he runs into a kidnapping of a gorgeous girl by the name of
Tomi.

After rescuing the gorgeous woman — whom two crooked police officers were paid by the mafia to steal the organs from — their escape becomes a low-key hilarious attempt at getting the digits. As always, the quality is high, and while interspersed with cartoonish overlays to give it a comic feel, there are actual quick cuts to fully animated Anime sequences, adding to the overall visual complexity of the treatment.

I’ve brought this up pretty much every time I share this guys shit, but the songs are always standalone even without the visual treatment. Subtract the video, and the track itself is fun as hell, filled with his usual brand of nerdery, intertwined with a plethora of penis punchlines and puns, like how she calls his D “ridiculous,” or how he’s not British but has a “BBC.”

The tone itself, aside from the more humorous tone, is more in line with a joint like “Ultraman,”
In contrast to the more aggressive aura of his last installment, “Got II.” There has yet to be a collective body of work, but it’s definitely going to be an absolute banger.

All in all, this guy remains a gem secret worth discovering. In the words of Pusha T, “If you know, you know.”

Vast Aire & COSMIQ Tease Upcoming EP With New Single

The free EP drops on Thanksgiving Day

Vast Aire (Cannibal Ox) and producer COSMIQ dropped a brand new single called “Shadow Dancer” on Halloween day — in advance of the Thanksgiving release of their long-awaited EP Live From The Aireport FreEP. Sponsored by UndergroundHipHopBlog, the critically acclaimed MC is dropping a handful of additional singles leading up to the release. “Blessings to my true fans,” Vast wrote via the new single’s YouTube.

RELEVANT: Check Out Our Interview With The Duo Here

In an interview earlier this year, Vast and COSMIQ told AAHH about the upcoming EP. “I would look at it as Live From The Aireport FreEP is just a series of dope new records from [my crew] IGC, and all the people connected to IGC,” COSMIQ said. “Just giving fans a window into what we’ve been working on.”

Vast added “The EP is on a similar wavelength [as the upcoming album], but it’s not all COSMIQ … [he] will be on it, and he’ll be helping to guide it, but it’s not gonna be all him. I’m gonna have guest producers, and there’s gonna be more interaction with different MCs.”

The duo promise the impending album, Aireplane, will be cinematic in nature, with multiple layers of complex rhyming sure to make real heads — and longtime fans — swoon. That is set to dro this winter (though no exact date is confirmed). For now, we can look forward to Live From The Aireport FreEP this Thanksgiving.
