Funny how time flies for Tabi Bonney. Around this time last year, the Washington, DC, rep was one to watch on the Paid Dues stage at Rock the Bells 2009. He was solo, showing how down-to-earth he is in the flesh, as he demonstrates through introspective songs like this one, “Nuthin But A Hero.” Who knew the zeitgeist gods were also pulling the strings for this video, which features other familiar faces from RTB ’09? MURS, who hosted the side stage events, makes a cameo, along with The Knux (Rah Almillio and Krispy Kream) who were on last year’s bill. Nice way to come full circle.
This week, we’ll be hosting posts from Suite903, the FADER’s source for the vast, varied world of soul. Starting next week, Suite903 will become a weekly column on TheFADER.com, combining the latest music, news, interviews and podcasts based on the acclaimed, decade-long Suite903 mixtape series. Stay tuned!
