Every year in November, the Cannabis Cup takes place in Amsterdam. And every year the freshest artists perform with shows all over the city. Last year I had the opportunity to interview Leon during this event. This year my friend Rakaa Iriscience was hosting the Barrington Levy show. Before Barrington had to perform, Chali 2na, known from Jurrasic 5 and Ozomatli blessed us with a show on stage.
Tony Grant, a name not many may have heard but probably have come across his art nonetheless. Tony was in Amsterdam with Az Yet for the R&B Throwback concert and I found out there was a lot more to this guy than just singing in a group. Read more

The R&B Throwback concert part 2 took place last friday in Amsterdam. With a line-up consisting of New Edition (Heads of State: Bobby Brown, Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill), Montell Jordan, Az Yet, Case, Adina Howard, Jon B and Next, Pay of course HAD to try to get a few interviews. Through Kerry French, Montell Jordan’s tourmanager, I got to spend time with Montell and got to talk to him for a minute.
Many special thanks to Kerry for making this possible. And thank you Montell, for being such a great person, and for giving me a sneak listen of the songs for your upcoming album.
Peace & Blessings. <3
