— — — Lovers of the old skool witnessed hip hop history in the form of many of its forefathers at the DJ Premier x Bumpy Knuckles release party for their collaborative album, The KoleXXXion (AVAILABLE NOW!). The party went well into the night and was hosted by the culture’s most well known hypeman, Flavor Flav.  Donning his signature clock and infectious energy, the former reality star proved that he’s still got it with impromptu performances, updates on all of his business ventures (look out for his new ‘bubbly’- Chateau de Flav) and shoutouts to everyone in the room. The most exciting announcement he made was that a NEW Public Enemy album is in the works!

In between performances by Justo, NYGz, and Sean Penn, hip hop nostalgia settled in as Kool Herc, Grandmaster Flash, Treach of Naughty by Nature, Eric B., and legendary femcees Heather B. and Sweet Tee all graced the stage.  The crowd went CRAZY when The Cold Crush Brothers came out for Bumpy’s set and spit a few rhymes.  It was definitely a night for the books and Mixx was there to witness it all.  ( via The Mixxmagazine.com/ @themixxmagazine)
