The Classic Material family is proud to bring another legendary artist to town, in our ongoing attempt to highlight both Deejay's and MC's from the golden era and beyond. Keith Murray will be making his Pittsburgh debut as part of the "Most Beautifullest" Edition of Classic Material. Keith is most notably known for his LP "The Most Beautifullest Thing In The World" (an album that received 4 mics from the source), and his affiliation with the EPMD offshoot super group, the Def Squad. He has recently teamed up with fellow animated MC, Cannibus, to form the "Undergods", with production duties handled by Erick Sermon. Selecta and SMI set off the night with their usual blend of multi-genre classics, with crooner and all around party rocker, Gene Stovall, handling the hosting duties once again. Get ready for the "Most Beautifullest MC Tour" with Keith Murray and special guest BurntMD, hitting the Shadow Lounge on October 16th. Tickets are available at the Shadow Lounge, www.showclix.com and here at Timebomb.

If you were walking down South Highland Ave on September 11 between 6pm-9pm you may have asked yourself.. WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON!? Well that would have been the 2nd Annual Time Bomb Street Art Fair. Attracting well over 300 people this years show was a HUGE success. We wanted to first and foremost thank all of the 29 artists that showed their work, Arlo for curating the show, DJ Hank D for rocking the party all night and of course CLIQUE vodka for good look! Between the magical bar tending skills of the beautiful Brook to BZE/Varsity Squad performance the night couldn't have went much better. Even Blasfome a popular Pittsburgh clothing brand (best known for its Somalia Pirates shirt) had it's Fall 10 drop that night in store. To top off the already awesome event we had some of Pittsburgh's favorite hip hop talent in and out the whole evening. If you missed out you can still checkout/buy the art HERE. Keep checking back for TONS of more pictures and of course another kick ass video from Cornelius3 productions.

Last weekend for one of the last warm nights of the summer, we invited our homies from Grind Time to host Pittsburgh's battle for 2010. Held in the lower level of the building, with a large crowd of hip hop heads, lyrical observers, and of course the battlers up next in line, the night kicked off with the camera clicking on, the crowd holdin it down, and the host of the evening, Real Deal, a true Grind Time champion, kickin it off right. With a underground hip hop atmosphere of tagged walls, battle circuts, and lots of close wins, brought to you by the 412's top tier opponents, this was an event you did not want to miss. There wasn't one battle that was an easy decision, which I soon found out when Real asked me to judge our mans Boca, who killed it off top! Anymal battled PG Skillet, dudes from DC, which turned out to be by far the closest battle of the night. And of course who could forget Doc Waffles? Feel bad if you missed this, but keep your eye out for it on both youtube and world star, with a debut on it's way. Who else would provide the burgh with the largest hip hop battle league? TBC of course.
