For those who know me well, you already know that I love music very much. It is probably the one thing I love more than food. Speaking of food…..wait if I speak about food I will forget what I was about to say. Where was I? Yes… Music. I love music. I cannot say I love only one type of music, because it is not uncommon for me to have a playlist that goes from Stamp On It by Sherwin Gardner to Nzambi na Bomoyi by Makoma. I adore music. It is the one thing that moves me from having a foul mood and three minutes and fifty six seconds later, I am jumping to the words of Wateule, a crunk song I did with Carlisto and Marvo, which you can download from here.
Hip-hop is my home. From the likes of Robot by TripLee to the slow, heavy crunk in Xpo’s new song Jericho ( which I honestly have on my favorites playlist right now), I can listen to hip-hop all day and night (while I am downloading Fringe and Revenge of course). My love for hip-hop has just been blessed with the conception of the newest hip-hop gig in town by the name Vault.
This event promises to be bigger and better than Volume 1. (Haitahitaji uambiwe, “Kama inabamba sana, wapi nduru?) You will have already been screaming at the top of your lungs.
Here is an excerpt of the #Revault press release.

The 2nd Edition will be held on Sunday the 16th of December 2012 at the Abondoz Restaurant Roof top that is situated at the Luther Plaza, along Uhuru highway opposite the central park as from 2pm to 8pm; this edition dubbed ‘the roof top party’ is set to be a Christmas party that all Hip hop fans will remember for a long time.
