For the last 17 years, the central valley of California has always held an annual music festival in Modesto called the "Xclamation Festival," popularly known as X-Fest. With a wide range of musical genres from rock, reggae, acoustic R&B to hip-hop, trance, and electronic dance music; there were multiple stages to cater to a variety of audiences. For the first time this year, X-Fest was held in Stockton, specifically at the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds and we had the privilege to hold a spot on one of the stages. Knowing the event was held on the Fairgrounds for the first time, we anticipated the event to be a tad sketchy with the stage placements as the sounds from each stage clashed quite a bit but still allowed their own sound to be heard within reasonable range to the audience. However, that didn't discourage us from rocking full out on stage. Big thank you to DJ Tone Dub for holding down the set for us despite the technical difficulties. This one definitely went down in the books for us as we continue to keep the ball rolling, doing what we do best - rock under pressure like diamonds.
On August 12th, 2016, Stockton's DJ and Urban Artist collectives; RESONATE and SKILLHOUSE have come together for their second installment of Symposium held at The Sycamore. Symposium is an event celebrating the collection of art and sound to create the ideal environment for musicians, artists, and enthusiasts alike to express their own mediums of creative innovation. We were invited by RESONATE's very own DJ Tone Dub to rock out for this special event prior to performing for this year's X-Fest this coming weekend on August 20th. Already preparing for San Joaquin Valley's Annual Music Festival a month before, we thought it would be a great idea to test the waters with our set. The energy was great and the turn out was amazing overall. Big thank you to the RESONATE and SKILLHOUSE family for putting together such a dope event for Stockton, allowing the youth to see a different side of what this city can offer. We are grateful and privileged to have rocked amongst creatively innovative individuals.
Thank you everyone that continues to support me whether I give you new music or music from 2011. I get real humbled when I listen to this mixtape. A lot has changed in 5 years but 1 thing is for sure. I’m a rapper. I got real things to do and the ending result is much more than having a big house or bragging about how my life is better than yours. (trust me I’m broke too haha)It’s about Good Nature and what we stand for and all the things I’m going to do in the future thanks to your support. Stay up to date on what’s with me and my group at http://www.goodnaturemusic.com . Here’s more free music I love you all.
