Mics were blessed, crowds were rocked & gargantuan smoke clouds were blown. Fresh into the summer tour, The Smoker's Club dropped into The Novo in Los Angeles & put it down for the multiple eras & locations of hip-hop its roster represented.
Smoker's Club veteran & co-founder Smoke DZA graced the stage emanating a flamboyant Ric Flair in his golden era, donned in the signature bath robe with the eternally coveted Heavyweight Championship belt resting all too comfortably on his shoulder. WOOOOO! If that beautiful display coupled with the Vince McMahon shirt under the Nature Boy drapery wasn't enough to solidify DZA's pro wrestling fascination, the warrior exited his verbal tussle set to Stone Cold Steve Austin's infamous adrenaline inducing anthem. Perfection.
The Heavyweight Championship belt sat on stage throughout DZA's performance reinforcing his dominance to anyone who might try to forget.
Wiz Khalifa surprised the room for a few hectic moments & put it down for his hometown of Pittsburgh with the Taylor Gang squad.
G-Herbo supplied the room with a bass heavy dose of Chiraq's younger generation of artistry.
The new breed of Flatbush, NY, The Underachievers, really hyped up the crowd for the legendary Harlem Diplomat.
Fans waiting in anticipation brought rare memorabilia in hopes of a nod or an autograph from the deity.
What more can you say about an absolute legend that hasn't already been said? Cam'ron brought heat to the stage that a lot of artists only dream of. Maximum output with what appears to be minimum necessary effort.
