By @stefan_official Part 1: The day finally arrived. Paris. October 12. Time to re-connect. Going back to point zero. Re-encounter my happy place in Hip Hop. In surprisingly sunny weather. In this trip I am sure to find my old friends:Inspiration. Excitement. Respect. Appreciation. This year Ready or Not is divided in 3 days.
The first day has three categories. Rapping, beatmaking and deejaying.
The night is also filled with performances from French as well as American artists. Wisdom Natural, Lea Anderson and Kohndo. New names. No prior knowledge from my end.
Respectively an RnB singer, a female rapper and OG Hip Hop emcee.
Intreguing moments. It's a vibe. Moreso because out of ten words, two are understood. The attention then flows to other aspects. Technique. Connection to the audience. Resonance to the music. Are they the music or they are trying to be? Emcee Kohndo comes on stage with a sax player named 'Fred' (you guessed it) 'saxophone' . Judging from the rehearsal that promises magical things.
