Recap To End All Recaps

YEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS Tampa!!!!! Shout all to all the creative around the bay area.

This is how we want start our black history month, nothing but great projects, great energy, and amazing melanated people.

Thursday Night

We started of the month the right way with a dope Vern Senior Yeadillac album listen session.


That’s right, Vern Senior decided to bless 2018 with a preview of some of that smooth stank he’s been working on. In recent months we’ve seen Vern collaborations with BangarangAri Chi, and Noo$e.

He’s racked up on producer credits left and right so it was a delightful treat to actually dive into the world of Yeadillac and hear what’s been stewing in his pot.

Hip hop lovers toasted and prowled around The Lion’s Den Cigar Lounge as King Knox was served exclusive unreleased tracks from the bay area rapper. As the tunes progressed Vern went on to surprise all the cool cats in cool hats with some SUPER EXCLUSIVE tracks with “Pop Rocks” rapper, Deezy Wee the Reaper.

When we asked one girl what she thought of the album she said,

“the album was fire emoji, fire emoji, fire emoji, waves, waves, waves”.

One girl was overheard saying

“this is some Tampa shit, right here”.

So were thinking that’s a good thing!?!….right???

Friday Night

If you weren’t already feeling yourself this past Friday night, the right mix from the bar at Iberian Rooster and you were guaranteed to be under DJ Mellohype’s Caribbean spell.


Mellohype literally unlocked a new level on the dance floor. All we heard from the selectah was “it’s still early”, next thing we know bodies were flying into motion. From the bar to the curry goat, straight booty bumping, rump rolling, gyrating all over that dancery.

We watched the basement of Iberian Rooster become a dance floor filled with syncopated thunder claps and circles centered around cycling windmills. Mellohype kept the crowd on the toes at all times, switching it up from reggae to reggaeton to Afrobeat and then dropping 90’s R&B hidden gems, nothing was off limits.


It started to look like an early 2000s Sean Paul video mixed with all of the season of Americas Best Dance Crew with the Jabberwockeez on it.


We will say though, the next Bashment flyer needs to come with a warning label that’s says

“DJ Mellohype may cause you to dance your ass off. ….so be ready for that.. like stretch or something.”

Check out our photo recap of a rhythm filled night.

Saturday Night

We found ourselves back at IR to celebrate the official release of Deezy Wee the Reaper’s ep, Pickled Oranges. The night was sprinkled with live performances from Mari Sodope, Ayo Mama, Tony Handz and GAT$, who delivered a phenomenal performance.

By the way if you looking for GAT$ online, one more time that’s



Spell that right.

Listeners have to admire Beyo’s commitment to getting everything just right. Deezy’s flow and Beyo’s ability to create the right amount of tension and release in his productions is what pushed Pickled Oranges to be such a highly anticipated project.


The night had to be capped off with a killer set from the man of the hour, Deezy Wee the Reaper. Deezy left everything on the stage during his performance.


We can’t help feel like it was just the other night that Beyo made this beat. Those two creative psychopaths, (Deezy and Beyo) set out to release a collaborative project. They, in turn, ended up releasing a movement through sound.

Conquer All, this past Saturday night was


to say the least. And to say the most, well….

We conquered all!

It was a slurry of good friends, funny smells by the bath room, trades of all sorts,

and umm …..well

a lot of Black Pussy.

There was a lot of Black Pussy (there was no other way to put that), Achilles The Conqueror would’ve wanted it that way, if we are going to be honest.


The man of the hour spent his birthday show being showered in gratitude and admiration from family, friends and fans.

Along with previewing some new material, Achilles took to the stage leaving the audience shocked and awe’d with his guitar technicality and his unwavering dedication to those who possess coco butter skin.

Anyways, we had a woot!

Yes you read that right “a woot!” and we wanted to share some flicks from Conquer all with you guys. So check out these photos from a seriously amazing night.

Read : Artists take on Bruno Mars Finesse Remix

After a long day of teasing fans via social media, Bruno Mars and Cardi B released a very In Living Color inspired video for their song “Finesse (remix)“.



After all that teasing the video is currently trending at number one on youtube and has accumulated over five million views with maybe a view thousands coming from us here at Savage City Blog and you guys out all around Tampa Bay.

The 90s inspired video and sound has peaked interest across the board, so we decided to ask a few Bay Area artists what they thought about Finesse (remix).

Here’s what they had to say…

“I sawwwwww!

I’m happy she switched it up. It’s kinda salt n pepperish but it not a stripper it’s a rapper and that’s all I wanted from her (to escape that trap of selling sex over content).”

It’s pretty dope. I like it!

As the day progresses we’re see more conversations about the video, Cardi B and the way Bruno Mars pays an homage In Living Color.


We just like knowing Tampa is paying attention and communicating with one another.

If you haven’t already check out Finesse (remix) from Bruno Mars featuring Cardi B below and let us know what you think.

Watch: Bangarang Cover Big Poppa

Really the answer is never too much. There can never be too much hiphop.

Hope your week has started off on the good foot because we’ve got a real lovely week filled with rhyme sayers and beat players.

We’re starting this off right for all the die hard Hiphop heads. Bangarang performing Big Poppa should get you in the mood to hear some dope ass rhymes.

Bangarang’s, Tyson Gordon, will be hosting Ybor Speaks tonight at The Lion’s Den Cigar Lounge Ybor. It’s a night governed by creative expression and the list of performer is ridiculous, ranging from Mike Mass, Asher B, To B Worthy and Alec Burnwright.

So the only question now is, When Ybor Speaks, will you be ready to listen?
