On Friday, July 14, 2017 at Purple Buffalo, local culture curators Ill Vibe the Tribe are presenting the third installation of their ever popular Hip Hop Showcase, Elevators. Elevators Volume 3 features the talents of JDanzo, of 803 The Clique, Charleston’s own Sunny Malin and two very special guests Mostafa and Landon Wordswell. Dj SCrib and IllVibe’s Resident Dj Sista Misses, will be tag teaming the tables blending between sets.
J Danzo, of 803 The Clique, is nothing short of mesmerizing. From wild hair to his charismatic flow, the youngest member of 803 The Clique constantly proves he isn’t the one to sleep on. Danzo dropped Young Basquiat in February of 2017 and has been making waves ever since. Sunny Malin, the quiet assassin, is humble in person but hungry on the mic. His album, Malin, released in January 2017, reminded everyone of how verbally calculating and captivating he can be.
Also gracing the stage is Landon Wordswell, fresh off of his UK tour. Wordswell has decided to once again bless the mic in Charleston and this time he’s bringing his friend and tour opener, Mostafa, along for the ride. Landon Wordswell is a 29 year Corvallis, OR resident by way of St. Louis, MO. Those cities combined have influenced the emcee’s tenacity, perspective, and insight. Landon’s stage performance & delivery have been praised on tours both nationally & internationally for its captivating crowd appeal & intricate rhyme schemes coupled with tightly knitted personal lyrics.
Outside of touring the United States with his frequent tour partner, Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), he has also completed a full European tour with the legendary Artifacts. Landon Wordswell has also performed alongside greats such as Mos Def, The Game, Talib Kweli, Slum Village, Warren G, Mobb Deep, Blackalicious, Lyrics Born, Black Milk, Zion I, Raekwon (Wu-Tang), Jeru The Damaja, Guilty Simpson, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Devin The Dude, Binary Star, Aceyalone, Freestyle Fellowship & many, many more!
