Following along on with Bacardi B-LIVE 2009 for 23 weeks, we're almost guaranteed to get some meta-commentary on the videos and posts from the artists playing the shows, but this is better than we expected. In the write up of the last episode, we said that Skillz, who's on the road handling the crowd with Jazzy Jeff, was the Ralph Macchio of hip hop, and then half qualified as a possible non sequitur. We were rolling with a theme. In this episode, which stops in Phoenix and Denver, Skillz seems to not know whether to take that as a compliment or insult. Rest assured it was a compliment. Karate Kid, The Outsiders and My Cousin Vinny all shaped our perception of the world in some way, and Skillz' annual "Rap Up"'s sort of did, too. Okay, so it didn't make sense. Welcome to TheFADER.com! Stay tuned for more episodes from future dates along the way including interviews, live performances and Jazzy Jeff's recent brouhaha in Kansas City only on FADER TV.
