I should have made it clear that I'm not moved much by present-day hip hop and revisit the glory days at any opportunity.
I didn’t realize how much I loved and missed Duck Down until I saw them all on stage in front of me at Le Poisson Rouge for the Duck Down vs Blacksmith Showdown a few years ago.
I may have shed a tear at Roc Raida's memorial but watching Buckshot perform Black Moon classics moistened my eyes.
Buckshot was on stage with such conviction and experience that the word legend kept running through my mind.
Sean Price is one of the few MCs that I look forward to hearing from these days. He tore up Montreal when he performed at the Cabaret du Mile-End and I was hoping to get more of that Montreal madness when he took the stage that CMJ night. Thankfully I have that Montreal night to refer to. I was good to see him again regardless.
It was also good to see Rock, Smif-N-Wessun and OGC all on stage together.
Evil Dee held down the turntables and could have stolen the night in his own right. The night was Duck Down's as time would later prove.
Duck Down should have closed the night rather than happen in the middle of the night. I'm happy it did because it gave me my hip hop fix for the night and for the week as far as live shows were concerned.
My videos aren't the best so below's how it should be done, courtesy of Duck Down.
