B-Money

Meet B-Money, special guest DJ for The Solution Showcase #12 on 1/26 at the Meadowlark…

B-Money is about as hip hop and Colorado as it gets.  From coming up as part of the Basementalism crew in the mid 2000s to hosting so many members of the hip hop scene that his old spot in Boulder was practically a #COhiphop landmark to appearing in the US DMC finals representing the state, he’s been collecting props on the local and national scenes at a steady pace.  B-Money initially established himself spinning b-boy jams and college radio, but over the last few years, he’s also turned into a force to be reckoned with on both the nightclub and turntablist scenes, and was a fixture at The Solution Boulder before legendary Boulder nightclub ‘Round Midnight closed.  Here’s more on B-Money via his bio in case you’ve been sleeping on a Colorado hip hop fixture:

“B*Money got inspired to climb the risers after watching old DMC battle videos and listening to DJs on the radio. Now he is fighting those battles himself, DJing on the radio, and appearing in the same series of videos he grew up watching. Radio and battling exposed him to wide range of audiences and helped land him gigs playing at festivals, clubs, and venues throughout the United States while sharing stages with some of hip-hop’s most elite acts including The Roots, The Pharcyde, Souls of Mischief, Ali Shaheed Muhammed (A Tribe Called Quest), Too Short, Rhazel, and The X-Ecutioners, just to name a few. With a heavy emphasis on constantly honing his turntablist skills he has been recognized as a DMC USA National Finalist and has backed and or toured with One.Be.Lo, Bionik Brown, 1865, Wheelchair Sports Camp, and The Reminders as a show DJ. But to B*Money, the foundation of DJing is being able to rock any party, and thus he prides himself on being able to play for a variety of crowds. Blending musical genres from jazz, funk, soul, rock, and pop, to dubstep, house, and hip-hop, he has been known to rock whatever audience is in front of him, appearing in venues from New York to San Francisco. He has rocked parties and events for the NCAA, The Onion, Red Bull, Sephora, Akomplice Clothing, and Illiterate Magazine. B*Money’s skills and versatility make him appealing to any crowd, at any size venue, at any time.”

Shouts to Lazy Eyez & #COHipHop…Check out DJ legend Rob Swift’s post about the 2011 Denver DMC event he put together…

Lazy Eyez is a super modest guy and I’m sure he’d never think to post this on here, but me, I’m shameless and had to show y’all what Rob Swift (of the LEGENDARY X-Ecutioner’s DJ crew) had to say about the 2011 Denver Regional DMC battle that Lazy put together last month.  It’s not the first time that Lazy has single-handedly put the time, money and effort up to ensure that the DMCs had a regional battle in Colorado, but from all accounts, this year’s battle was the most classic one yet.  Recent Thre3 Style Boulder winner and world renowned turntablist DJ Vajra beat out runner-up Cysko Rokwel (another world famous battle DJ from here in Denver), third place finisher B-Money (in a three-way tie w/Jeff C & Wax Shreds) and a host of other great turntablists to take the title, but Cysko’s set was so exceptional that he was given the rare runner up invite to return to the US DMC finals in NY.  I’m sure some video from the event will be popping up soon, but in the meantime, get ready to root for Vajra & Cysko in the national DMC finals and pat yourselves on the back Denver, Lazy and everyone who participated.  With that said, check out Rob Swift’s perspective on the event below. – DJ Low Key

2011’s Denver, Colorado DMC Regional was dope, PERIOD! It had a throwback feel to it. Some of ya’ll reading this probably weren’t around during the time of the New Music Seminar Battles for World Supremacy back in the day but that’s what last night’s Denver heat reminded me of. I myself was too young to actually attend the early NMS battles of the 1980s so I resorted to tracking down the NMS VHS tapes from years like 1988 and 89 ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srcpASrIfF8 *man do I miss watching cats cut up straight vinyl, but I digress…). By the time 1990’s NMS battle came around, I finally made the pilgrimage into Times Square to witness my very first DJ battle in person. The experience was pivotal in my life. Actually being there and standing a few feet away from heroes like DJ Aladdin, Busy B Starski and Ice Cube had a huge impact on my decision to choose the path I have as a DJ. Something tells me there was someone in that audience who was inspired just like I was when I attended my first battle.  Last night wasn’t just about the DJs. Denver’s DMC regional also celebrated other elements of Hip Hop. There was a B-Boy and MC battle which reminded me of the 1989 NMS. Granted 89s NMS Dance Battle was more of a “Kid N’ Play” dance style of battle so it didn’t encompass the intricacies I saw the B-Boys display in Denver. But nonetheless, Denver was yet another reminder that a person’s uncontrollable urge to move to the music Turntablists/Battle DJs like us create still holds true. Just as it did in 89! Even the Graff element was being represented (Big Shout to The Signtologist for hitting me off with probably the coolest gift I’ve ever received from a fellow artist).  To all the DJs, MCs and Dancers who competed, I SALUTE YOU! These days, I can’t help but feel like other genres of music like Dubstep and Electro seem to be taking away some of the attention away from Hip Hop. Whether that’s really happening or not, it was refreshing to see all of you stay true to the core principals of OUR culture ——–> Love, Peace, Unity and Having Fun!  Honorable mention goes to DJ Lazy Eyez aka Sean Choi and Christie Z. Pabon for sacrificing their time and energy to put together such a successful Hip Hop event. I’d also like to send mad love out to Casselmans for hosting all of us at such a beautiful venue.  Here’s to Hip Hop in Denver and everywhere else in the world!  Rob Swift
