O.I.S.D. (Operation Industry Shut Down) was, is, and will continue to be one of the best crews in NYC's hip-hop scene. Although the group's five emcees are enjoying branching out on their own, when they come together for projects it's a reminder of how great the old Bowery Poetry Club scene was a handful of years ago. J. ManifestO's "So Live" is a perfect example of this, as it features fellow O.I.S.D. emcee J. Monopoly, and vocalist Cindy Rose.
There are really only two words to describe "So Live" – SO LIVE! Click play, and enjoy.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
