You know I always share a musical gift with y’all on my bornday. Enjoy!!!
“On My Gonzales” is Atlanta-based mc/lyrical alchemist/DOOM affiliate staHHr’s latest video from her “Mother Nature with a Molotov: Molotov Season” album. Joined by lyrical heavyweights John Robinson (Scienz of Life) and Ekundayo (L.I.U.N.S. Den), the trio lace this Floyd the Locsmif track with clever wordplay, smooth delivery and quotables for days. The title of the song comes from a line in staHHr’s verse, where she coins the phrase “on my Gonzales” in reference to one “being focused, handling biz, doing their job, etc”. Director Nick Burnz interweaves elements of “Golden Era” hip hop with live performance footage, playing off of the organic energy of the song and the undeniable and familial chemistry of staHHr, JR and Ekundayo.

John Robinson made the trip from NYC to immortalize the energy that catalyzed the album with this visual(the first song recorded for Molotov Season), and had this to say:
“It was great to link with my ATL fam
staHHr and Ekundayo on this one! This is real deal fam biz. I have been rhyming with both of them in the trenches of the ATL scene since early 2000’s and we are still here holding the HipHop culture up strong. We gotta keep it moving swiftly…Always on our Gonzales yo! ZOOOOOOOM!”

This show has been a long time coming. Back in 2012, the Secret B-Sides opened for staHHr and Dead Prez in Asheville, NC. And, in 2009 Abyss, Secret B-sides, and Preach Jacobs shared the stage, open mic night at Apache Cafe, downtown Atlanta. Now, these artists are coming together for a more collaborative evening of performances in the heart of downtown Atlanta, GA, at the Mammal Gallery (91 Broad St. SW).
The order of performances will go as follows: Secret B-Sides will perform a supa-fly opening set, featuring, South Carolina eMCee, Preach Jacobs! Up next, Abyss, the poet, musician, and activist, who has appeared on HBO and BET again and again, will do what he does best. Finally, staHHr will take the mic–with style and grace–to close out the night and bring us full circle.
This will be an amazing, collaborative and soulful experience . . . at an all-ages, community event space.
Tickets are $10 at the door. Music starts at 9pm sharp.
See you at the show!
