LACMA Through the Mic: Freddie Gibbs X Madlib

Through the Mic is a new concert series at LACMA that explores contemporary Los Angeles hip hop, with an emphasis on the diversity of L.A.-based artists.”  September 20th showcased a few of our favorites, Freddie Gibbs, Madlib, Blu & Exile.  Shit was gully, with a chant started by Mr. Gibbs himself, “FUCK POLICE…”  The show’s backdrop was artist Chris Burden’s Urban Light sculpture, which made for a truly unique experience.  If you’re in L.A. for the last installment Oct. 17th., you don’t want to miss it.

All the usuals in attendance, some notable some infamous.  We were fortunate enough to hang out in the green room for some JayLip interviews, stay tuned for Freddie Gibbs and Earl Sweatshirt.

Tripple OGGG (Goon, Gibbs & Gonz).

Earl Sweatshirt (OF) was a surprisingly humble and knowledgeable dude.  Definitely knows his Hip Hop and definitely not on some Hollywood high horse.

Gibbs, Thuggin’!
