Video // Studio Session with Kev Brown & Kenn Star

We U-streamed this session and had a lot of fun with it. This is a late addition to the project I'm working on. Kev came by my crib, set up his equipment and made me a joint on the spot. Crazy! We had like 10-15 cats at my spot getting it in heavy. Shout out to Roddy Rod, RBI, J-Scrilla, Grussle, Slimkat78 and everyone else that was in my living room to witness Kev make more greatness.

Me and Beta we're in Queens, NY when we came up with this concept. Both wrote our verses on the spot and came out with a monster called "Smoke With Me". The video was shot and edited my Langston Sessoms of ILR and will drop on 4/20, of course ;)

The clean version of Inlgorious Beta drops on April 1st and will be a FREE download. I'll just say this, you are NOT a fan of hip-hop if you don't fuck with this album. This shit is EPIC, i promise you!

Laelo featured on Darn Good's latest EP "Young, Black & Gifted"

I've known the fellas of DenD Productions for over a decade now and this is the first collaboration we've gotten to do together. I actually had them remix a track from my first album about 4 years ago, but this is the first chance me and Good have been able to get on a joint spittin together. The beat was supplied by Mr. Ozone.

Laelo Hood opens up for legends Nas, Rakim & Damien Marley

This was definitely a night to remember. I enjoyed every moment of this night. Especially being on stage the whole time the headliners performed. The funny thing about this night was that Sway from MTV didn't show up to host for whatever reason so Paula,the general manager of Zanzibar, asked me to host the entire event. I was super cised. LOL. I got the opportunity to share a stage with my favorite rapper of all-time, Nas. Of course i brought the ILR squadron out with me. We had to stall after my official set was done because the headliners hadn't showed up yet so i let my brother K-Beta crush shit! He spit like 200 bars over different beats mixed by DJ Jav. Its was an epic night indeed

Laelo featured on Lyriciss' latest "The Practice" released Jan 2010
