Riot breaks out at Necro concert in Vancouver

The scene was tense from the beginning, with dedicated fans fiending to see their boy Necro live at Richard's on Richards last night (March 21st). Around midnight, an announcement was made (I didn't hear it) that Necro was not going to be able to do his set. Apparently his bus caught a flat tire somewhere between Calgary and here.

So what happens?

Bottles, glasses, and basically anything that wasn't nailed down started flying everywhere. Actually I retract that statement, because even tables got ripped out of the floor and thrown around. The club was completely trashed and lots of people who went to the show for a good time were unnecessarily hurt. This all popped off while that frickin warrior DJ Sage was on stage finishing up his opening set.

To the people who started this shitstorm and to those who kept it going: Way to make sure that Necro will never be booked in Vancouver again because nobody is going to want you crazy fools in their club. There was already plans being made for a make-up show as early as tonight (Sunday, March 22) when it became official that Necro wasn't going to be able to do the show last night. But now that's out the window. Good work guys

This was an embarrassment in so many ways and it makes Hip-Hop look like a complete joke in the public eye. Click here to read the article.

Also, don't forget to support DJ Sage at as he goes for Underground DJ of the year.

DJ Sage takes stitches for Hip-Hop!

BIG Track

New Reflection Eternal!

Reflection Eternal f/ Bootsy Collins - Internet Connection

March 3rd, URP Radio PODCAST

Guess who's back?

The Urban Renewal Project... and we started off the show by featuring only one track off Grandmaster Flash's new album, The Bridge. Don't worry, we got into another track later on in the show so we technically got the Double Shot in.

We were joined live over the phone by T. Dot MC, Cale Sampson, who just dropped his self titled debut. Check for it on iTunes or wherever fine music is sold, and hit him up online at . We were going to be joined by The Lyricists, representing Michigan, but due to time zone conflicts we couldn't make it happen. We will link up with them in the next few weeks though, so sit tight.

Until next week, check out this week's podcast: DOWNLOAD HERE Tons of good music!
