Don’t Count Mississippi Out: 3rd Eye Music Fest ’15 Set To Change The Game Down South
It wasn’t too long ago that I first featured Jhamasa Corinthian on W.Coast.K (June 2014 to be exact). When I first saw their “Just Chillin” video, the track literally gave me the chills. Like these two are really on to something… I couldn’t help but to be reminded of Leaders Of The New School. So, I naturally checked out their Retro Love Arcade project to see what else they were capable of. And it became an instant unknown classic, in my eyes. You know, the type that only true fans will know after an artist blows up (death to bandwagoners).
After that we kept in touch. Until one day last year I got a message asking if I’d like to cover their Retro Love Tour out here on the West Coast. Of course, I said yes, but was really thinking “fuck yeah awesome!” Not only would it mean meeting two talented individuals, but it would also put my collecting dust in the corner, DSLR to use.
Upon meeting them in person, you could tell that Jhamasa and Corinthian are some of the select few set out to change the world. You know the type. You can see it in their eyes. So, it didn’t surprise me to learn Corinthian is now putting on for his city of Jackson, Mississippi with the 3rd Eye Music Fest 2015. The festival will feature W.Coast.K favorite, Ray Kincaid, along with a slew of other dope artist you might want to familiarize yourself with. Artists such as, Dream Cult, Sir FlyWalker, Talia Sade and Giants By Night.
It all goes down this Saturday, November 14th at Fondren Park around noon. So, if you’re in town or around the area, be sure to stop by for good times and good vibes. I won’t be there in presence, but in spirit and business cards. If you happen to be the lucky recipient of a W.Coast.K card, post it up on Instagram and mention @WestCoastKeish to be entered to win a free iTunes giftcard. =) Aside from that, peep the lineup and other vital details below…
