Curren$y Live in San Francisco

A few months back, I heard a track from Curren$y - a Louisiana artist who was signed to Young Money til 2007.  After that, I was hooked - grabbing the recent album release Pilot Talk (July 13, 2010).

Then my cousin, DJ ANT-1, invited Leon and me to one of his shows... featuring Curren$y.  Of course, we didn't turn it down.  Check out the promo flyer:

There, Leon and I met up with my cousins Anton (DJ ANT-1) and Angelo (DJ GEL-O) who introduced us to the Ri$ky Bizne$$ crew and their sound guy, Sonny Phono - all cool peoples.  There were a bunch of fans out there who came to support, many of them filling the place with smoke even after management tried to prevent it from happening and even kicked out a handful of people... I guess it came down to - what are you gonna do when all the clients that night are doing it and paid a fee to see the headliner, who is also known for smokin' wherever he goes?  Plus, it's San Francisco... so what ya gonna do?  When you see the showcase video behind the cut, from 24KMilkCrate, you'll see all the smoke... there were no fog machines or special effects.

It was amazing to see my cousin spinnin' for the first time.  I thought he was only gonna do a couple of solo sets and DJing for the Ri$ky Bizne$$ crew... then imagine my surprise when I see him DJing for Curren$y himself!  I was blown away and it made my night even better.  Check out some photos and videos behind the cut...
