Update: Most of the city over the last month has heard in some shape or fashion about Kandaddy and Kandaddy Productions the new upstart music collective via his massive promotion campaign over the last month or so. As Kandaddy promised everyone he would bring a hype energetic cogent show of talent, I can say honestly he delivered on all his promises. At Club Cognac last weekend his skeptics and detractors were silenced cementing that he along with his team is about handling biz. He didn’t receive the numbers that he initially anticipated but he did get the support from a lot of friend’s and family that make up his grassroots base. The audience screamed to show their support for his artist and their sensational showmanship on stage which I even had to admit really impressed me. The sound system sounded primed and really crisp thanks to the A.N.D.’s own underground dope producer the “Trak Addict”. The addict engineered the boards at the preshow warm up(video at bottom) making sure the bass was in your face and as Salt N Pepa would say on one of their classic records as I remember “My Mic Sounds Nice”. Shout out to the Addict because he definitely had everybody’s Mic sounding real nice including mine folks.
Oh yeah can’t forget to let you know that he also was djing in between the show sets and performed a superb job while Kandaddy made sure that all of his artist show sets went over smoothly. Smoke (1/3 of the infamous Baddazis) jumped on stage from time to time to help out his younger label mates entertain the crowd keeping everything on point utilizing his veteran presence and skill. The kandy man laid it all on the line he brought free food, with a host of kandaddy productions fan memorabilia, and a artist who came as far as Cincinnati ,Ohio called Faze who is liken unto a Eminem flow ill spittin kat. Other artist like Caution, K4G, and the engine of the Kandaddy crew called HEMI really crunk the stage up. These electrifying artist really held their own but what I really liked about the Kandaddy Family is how they all seemed to support each other. That caught my eye the most, above and beyond anything else that I observed during their performances.
