I’m really looking forward to this. African Alert was THE FIRST Hip Hop show in the STL that was totally and completely dedicated to the Hip Hop that was not being played on the commercial stations….. It spawned several other incredible shows and events and everyone who touched this show and/or it’s predecessors is a force to be reckoned with
Mission muthafuckin’ accomplished…….

Wow, just saw this on Facebook. Someone posted my old Altered St8s 12” as well as dope records from friends of mine. Feels good to know that the people who supported us then are still rockin’ with us now. I appreciate the support, whether it’s you comin’ to a show, buying product or just taking time out to listen.

Some positive press on the St. Louis Underground Music Festival. I’m glad to be a part of this annual event.
"It is in some ways music festival by committee — so large is the organizing body of St. Louis’ best showcase of local hip-hop. As S.L.U.M. Fest expands, so too do its ambitions, which now it involve visitors from out of town and a dedicated awards show. Together, those two accomplish remarkable goals. The traveling acts strengthen the overall quality and lend the festival credibility, and the awards serve to canonize a group of artists who otherwise see little shine for their yearlong grind. It’s an ironic acronym — S.L.U.M. — because its respect for the St. Louis hip-hop scene is equal to penthouses, not gutters."
How to get the music (lyfestile/Altered St8s/Plan-B)
