Home Grown Hip Hop

After shooting at Tomatofest last weekend, I went downtown to see what looked good in the late afternoon sun. Walking by Kiener Plaza, I found that a local radio station was putting on a show with young local hip hop artists. They were just kids but they were full of energy and could really sing and dance. Now, I don't know hip hop from a block of wood (except that Nelly is from St. Louis), although I can sing a fair amount of Italian opera from memory (Che gelida manina! se la lasci riscaldar. Cercar che giova? al buio non si trova.). Nevertheless, I thought these guys were a lot of fun.

Yes, they are fun. I would still prefer La Bohème though!

Look at you B. Stepping outta that opera box! Good for you. I don't appreciate hip hop or any of that so much. Your portraits are great though and full of energy as well.
