Shout out to Jeron Johnson from the Seattle Seahawks and Orlando Scandrick from the Dallas Cowboys for stopping by the office!
UCR held its annual Heat Festival this past Saturday on Campus and I must say it was not what I was expecting at all. There was lots of students, music and food. Thankfully we had the opportunity to sneak around between the stages with our friend DJ Clockwork and the rest of the Most Dope crew, who I might add were some of the most hospitable people that has hosted IMKING to date and please excuse the photos this was a bit of an unexpected trip so everything was shot on my trusty iPhone.
TreeJay and Mac Miller absolutely murdering this crowd.
Had to show some love to my brother DJ Clockwork. Never forget the dj’s people.
The amount of feedback this crowd was giving Mac was something I haven’t seen in a long time. This Kid is definitely a star in my book.
And then there was this, the massive sea of people that was put into a hypnotic trance to the sounds of Diplo.
Chill with new artist ZEKE . Self-proclaimed “viber,” this LA-bred songwriter/performer’s laidback style is the soundtrack for the free-spirited, care-free listener. His new hit, “OpM” (which stands for other people’s money) is a collaboration with rapper Dom Kennedy and has already won big with fans, making its mark on LA airwaves.
To many aspiring artists, hearing your song played on the radio is the ultimate prize, but for Zeke it is just one small token of his hard-earned labor and the soon-to-come rewards. Close to a decade of penning music, Zeke has spent years developing his performance prowess in Philly initially as a rapper until returning to his birthplace, Los Angeles, to pursue the other side of music as a writer.
Kobalt Music recognized Zeke’s writing abilities in 2009 and offered him a publishing deal. Since then, Zeke has worked with the likes of Amerie, The Runners, No ID, Dawn Richards of Dirty Money, and Dom Kennedy. Appearing in front of the mic this time around, Zeke’s music will soon sway crowds worldwide with his upcoming tape titled “2090” scheduled to drop Spring/Summer 2012. Vibe with Zeke on Twitter / Tumblr and check out more of Zeke’s videos, interviews and music in the near future with us on IMKING.com.
