Look: Young Parisians Take Over One Year Later

Elephant in the room and we just got talk about it.



It’s been a bit over a year, yes three hunnid and sixty-five days (give or take) since the Young Parisians Take Over: NYC.

Yep that’s the one.

Scroll back up if you need to…..

I’ll wait. 3d50e270-fd8c-0132-4f98-0ec273752cbd3d50e270-fd8c-0132-4f98-0ec273752cbd3d50e270-fd8c-0132-4f98-0ec273752cbd

We know, we know it hard to grasp, in a year so much has happened to the wild bunch from the swamp lands who took on the streets of New York.

There has been ….

Culture Connects

12 Wine & Rhymes (quick math, s/o to Big Shaq)

Battle of the bands

GMF trolley performances

Song writing showcases

Hurricane relief trips

West coast take overs

East coast take overs (We miss you Luke Lauren)

And who knows how many albums in the making.

We understand y’all busy, however we’re taking the back one good time to the place where it all began.

Let’s get a good look at the players

Mike Mass


These two are real characters, Proper Jones & Mowglii

Asher B

Marv Illest

Travis Lavoe

Wesley Bland

Artis Shi

And Of course Mr. Luke Lauren.

Location : Brooklyn.

Real World style, seriously all that was missing was a little confession room. Not as much drama as MTV likes but just enough shenanigans to keep you well entertained. The energy was electric.

There was drinking,_DSC0671.jpg

eating, partying,_DSC0540.jpg

eating, working, traveling,

eating, a ridiculous amount of sleeping on the floor while there were open beds,_DSC0788.jpg

eating, oh and eating.


To be fair one does work up a mean appetite on the streets of New York, but we prevailed for the chopped cheese.


Along the way we had some ups and downs like, someone lost their wallet on the subway. Thanks to a good Samaritan, the wallet was returned to it’s the owner. Shouts out to you, good Samaritan, and yeah we prevailed on that one.


Or during the Art of Rap event, we didn’t let technical difficulties hold us back. Instead, we humbled our voices and let the artists shine.

Beatbox and funky rhymes, from graffiti covered rooftops.

The Dutch call it “heersend” I like to call that prevailing.

Together we got through an intensely amazing experience together.  All of us came out the other side with not only new friendships but memories that will mostly likely last a lifetime.

So more time just for old times’ sake, The Young Parisians Take Over : NYC edition.

Watch: Head To Head With Mowglii

Recently we had the chance to go Head To Head with Young Parisians recording artist, Mowglii.

His flair for floral print and undying love for his community has made him a staple that can be found front and center at any cultural event around the bay.

Check out what he had to say about what he witnessed during hurricane Irma, the reason he stepped back from performing, and some of his favorite bay area artists.

Look: Tampa Take Overs

Many of you may see this picture and just see two light skin fellas at Crowbar posing for a photo-op, but what we see is so much deeper.

So what’s so special about this photo?

Besides the complete accuracy of these rapping doppelgangers there, for us at least, is the nostalgic sentiment within the photo. It is the reason we cherish the relationships we’ve formed around the Tampa Bay community.

This photo of Drew “Mowglii” Brown from the hip hop collective Young Parisians and Mateo “Prince Golden” Henley from Samurai Shotgun remaking a photo of rappers Vic Mensa and J. Cole is as hysterical as it historical for us.

Both musicians are insanely in sync with the many sounds spewing from the bay. Even with their endlessly busy schedules, they work harder to take Tampa to newer heights. From Wine & Rhyme to Hiphopalooza and YP Take Overs to The Four Horsemen Tour, they’ve proven that with open minds, open ears, and open mics we can take our love for the 813, national.

What we see in this photo is the culmination of what SavageCityBlog has always been about, community.  Looking at this picture of these two pioneering members of different tribes we are reminded, even if it’s one day at a time, together we can make it happen.

So yes, I guess you can say we did it for the culture a time or two.


Please feel free to join us on this walk down memory lane as we revisit the Young Parisians Take Overs and The Four Horsemen tour.

Free Smoke II Tonight.

Tampa artist taking his 813 DIY roots and planting it down in New York. It’s been almost six months since Cap Luke moved to the big apple. Now he is hosting his second pop-up in effort to further bridge the gap between the 718 and 813. We had a chance to talk to him about this pop-up, being an ambassador for Tampa in New York, and potential future pop-ups artists.

Screen Shot 2017-06-29 at 9.28.35 AM.png

SCB: When did you first come up with the idea to do a Pop Up show?

 Cap Luke: I actually met the people who throw the first pop-up and given my past experience throwing shows here and there, hardcore and hip hop, I decided to do it out here. I had met enough people at the point to build a line up and gain some type of following. The first one was pretty decent show, good crowd, and unexpectedly packed.

SCB: Why do you feel it’s important to include a Tampa or Florida artists at your pop-up shows?

Cap Luke: The idea for this show was centered around Skinny Scumbag coming. That is the goal honestly. Since moving out here in February, I was able to linked up with so many people from Tampa in New York. So It’s been my goal to connect artist from Florida with artist from New York.

SCB: Where are you throwing this pop-up show?

Cap Luke:

At my house.

SCB: how did you ended up at the decision to throw Free Smoke II at your apt?

Cap Luke: Due to complication securing a location, I decided to throw it at my house. With Skinny coming and the idea of throwing a show, I knew it has to be balls to the wall. What better place to do it than my own house? It’s going to be wild.

Screen Shot 2017-06-29 at 9.36.02 AM.png

SCB: Who are some people you might want to have come through for future pop-ups?

Cap Luke: As far as my Tampa folk go, I definitely want to see my dog Wheatly out here. Obviously, shout out the fam like Mason Monroe, Haze and all them. I think they are planning on coming up here in a couple months, hopefully Tony Handz comes. I just know that the music these artists like Vern Sr.  or Gat and Cris is all very unique and on par with everything out here, so I would love to see everybody up here.

Screen Shot 2017-06-29 at 9.28.16 AM.png

SCB: What’s the best way to get in touch with you as far as collaborating for future projects and events?

Cap Luke: Instagram honestly. I’m sleep as hell on twitter. You could try my email Caplukecl@gmail.com. But really Instagram is the best way to contact me @Speederparker.

All my NYC peoples, make sure head over to Cap’s tonight or Free Smoke II, issa movie.

Deezy Wee The Reaper – Jetro (Cali Edition)

Deezy Wee The Reaper‘s “Jetro” was only released a few months ago but the single has been coast to coast and now has TWO, (count it, 1, 2) that’s right two music videos.


How do you know you’re one of the more highly regarded artists around the bay? When you have two different visuals filmed on different coasts for your one single.

Screen Shot 2017-06-12 at 4.44.50 AM

From the numerous Young Parisians Take Overs, the reaper, along with the help of composer Tyrone ‘Dibiase’ Beyobe, has successfully whammied the nation with a ear drums rattling bass line from the underworld.

As the two Parisians stew away collaborating to produced Deezy Wee’s highly aniticpated forth coming project, the fright night anthem continues to grow a life of it’s own.

Video #1 (Tampa Edition)

Local director and 79 sorcery Co-founder Michael M Sinclair filmed a fire live performance of Deezy Wee at Anise located in downtown Tampa. The video is really sick, MMS is a magician at capturing raw energy in the moment. You can hear the crowds a passion and excitement pulsate above the music to the rhythm Beyobe has justifiably perfected.

Check out MMS X Jetro


Video #2 (California Edition)

A few months ago on the final night of The Young Parisians Take Over: L.A., Deezy along with the rest of The Young Parisians decided to spend their last night in California the only way they knew how. I’m not going to describe what they did, it’s all in the video, I’m just glad I was there to capture it all. This video also features guest cameos from Asher, Mike Mass, Vern SR., Beyobe, and Louis Junior.

I present to you the second video for Deezy Wee The Reapers ” Jetro” directed by your truly.

Above anything I think this just goes to show that out here, in the bay, it’s not a 79 Sorcery thing, or a YP thing or a Savage City thing. It’s bay area and that’s it, we’re all interconnected. We strive to support. We push one another to do better than we did yesterday. We are Tampa.

Embrace The Wine: Embrace the Rhyme.

If you were at Anise Global Gastrobar this past Monday, then you know it was buzzing with familiar faces as well as new comers. Paired with a welcoming gold grill smile and exclusive art by Cody Jitt Brodie third time was defiantly a charm.


This past month’s Wine and Rhyme line up featured a diverse mix of entertainment. Hip-hop performances from Prophit, Achilles The Conquerer, and Juni, kept the crowd pumped while the more poppy set from trio, Bendy Straw, brought the crowd together with their, quirky all be it relatable, songs.

Check some of the footy from This past Wine and Rhyme.


Finish this week how you started it, with The Young Parisians.  Stop by Crowbar tonight and check out what Asher is calling “the dopest beat battle in Tampa!” Don’t miss out on the South Florida Producers Showcase. Needles scratch at 8 pm with live music from Jose Casalon, 8 PE, and Blinsky. Also, there is a sweet $500 grand prize, SFPS 12 is sure to be lit.
