If you didn’t get to Top Billin’ at the Mezzanine Friday, you truly missed out. Organized by Distortion 2 Static, Sweetbreads Collective, and Stash Magazine, Top Billin’ was probably the biggest showcase of Bay Area and upcoming hip-hop talent of the year. Starting off with StreetMedia, then Jern Eye, J Billion, Freddie Gibbs, DaVinci, and finally Freeway and Jake One, the whole show was a heat fest.
Due to technical difficulties (excessive BAAAASSSSS) some of my footage is too distorted to watch. Fortunately, BMUSE of AlwaysHustle got plenty of footage himself, which I’ll be sprinkling in here as he uploads it. Oh, and Freeway happened to bring some friends by the name of…well, I’ll let you see that for yourself.
Hit the jump for the footage!
