DUBB continues his hot streak with the Bodega BAMZ-assisted "Bodega & Liquor Stores." DUBB always keeps it one-hundred percent authentic with his craft; creating an instant connection between the listeners and the man behind the music. On "Bodega & Liquor Stores," DUBB paints a vivid picture of LA street life; this track is an anthem for converse rocking, Old English Sipping California Natives. I've never been to Cali, but listening to DUBB spill his soul on the track gives you a great understanding of how complex that sunshine state lifestyle really is. The Hidden Faces produced anthem is taken off DUBB's upcoming project, Perfect Timing. Be sure to check this track out, and share your thoughts with us.

Current superstars such as Kid Cudi, Big KRIT, Tyler the Creator and rap super-group Black Hippy will be sharing the stage with old favorites like Wu-Tang Clan, Rakim and Bone Thugs N Harmony for what will be one of the most memorable hip-hop concerts in recent history. If the big names weren't enough, we will also get a chance to see other very talented artists like Talib Kweli and Dilated Peoples who have gained much respect among the biggest names in hip-hop. Another unique feature of this concert series is that it will feature virtual performances from the Godfather of Gangster Rap, the late Eazy-E, and Ol' Dirty Bastard of the Wu-Tang Clan. This has received approval by their families of course.
Virtual performances are sure to have their share of critics but there is no doubting they will expose these artists to a new set of fans who will also have a chance to appreciate their music like we did. Who would you like to see added to line up? Do you think virtual performances are a tribute to the artist or a gimmick? Tell us what you think!
