Basel Castle by The Overthrow is one of the mandatory jams to attend. As expected, the line was fukkin eternal. It wrapped around the corner and little more than 1/2 way around the block. It was so far some people didnt even know what they were in line for. I saw Jasmin (Vintage Vandal) while I was out front and she was like ROK THE SPOOOOOTTTT!!! She’s great. Her homegirl had a hookup for them to get in. Everybody was on their own mission. I knew there was no point of standing in line so I hung out for a bit to see if I could pull some strings to get in. I ran into Rudy and Dj Main Event and they have a 6th sense for the spots that still had open bar. I was only one 4Loko into the night and there was room for much more destruction. A few beers later we went back to the castle and it still looked impossible. They werent having it so they peaced out. I eventually got in, thanks to the police. Really.
Yellerrrrrrr was dope as fuck. Its the one performance I really cared to see all basel.

Jonathan Mannion is a legendary photographer in the HipHop community. Youve definitely seen his work. I just found out last night that A$AP Rocky is performing too! Im looking forward to this right hurrrr.
For my dubstep fix. This shit is gonna be BRUTAL. Hatcha and N-Type do not fuck around. Both times they’ve been here on their own they’ve destroyed shit. Now their powers combined!?! -_- Shit just got real.
Hello Kitty 50th Anniversary celebration came through for Art Basel. When I first heard about this event I thought, “cool, heres something Im going nowhere near.” But I checked the flyer afterwards and saw a lineup of some dope artists including Pose. He happens to be a fukkin monster with them can skills, so do your research. Then I found out my homies from 2 Girls and a Cupcake were going to make cupcakes for the event. WIN!
It was supposedly an RSVP event, but my name didn’t end up on the cool people list, so someone let me in through the side door. wow. I literally just realized I snuck into a Hello Kitty party. Your thuggin aint got shit on my thuggin, so don’t even front. I was there from the beginning and I was supposed to leave to check out Flosstradamus at Grand Central but I kinda said fuckit. Slowly but surely, more people I knew kept coming through. Martha Cooper came by and a bunch of graff writers also. Cope, Pose and others whos combined criminal records had served 23902934 years. I stayed till the end, you know, getting Hello Kitty wasted off free wine and beers.
In summary: pretty girls, stripper pole, free dranks, tattoos and graffiti. nuff said.
Once I heard “Original Gangster” by Ice-T playing, I knew that I didn’t really need to be anywhere else.
