EVENT: Rebirth Of Slick 9/27/11

Rebirth Of Slick

Rebirth Of Slick’s monthly residency at Lees Wine Bar continues in September with DJ A to the L and M.E.R.C. once again hosting a celebration of classic Hiphop featuring live performances, breaking displays from the C.Y.P.H.E.R & Children of the Koncrete/B-Girl View crews, and the culinary support of the Cravings Truck. (And of course backed by the finest wine and beer selections in Tallahasee from Lee and his crew.)

AND IT’S ALL FREE! There is no entry fee, no door charge, no nothing, no nada, no payment, no money required to attend the event…. this of course means that there is NO EXCUSE for not attending.

This month’s main guest is the host of Blazin’ 102.3’s Diggin’ In The Crates – my brother, Stess The Emcee. Check below for the man’s accomplished bio, and download his newest mixtape Mic Kill Jordan for free here.

Stess The Emcee was born Thomas Roach to a Military family. His eclectic sound gives credit to the different regions and countries he has lived. A fierce competitor had him on stages and in ciphers battling the most elite of MCs. He learned of his Hip Hop affinity at the age of four when he heard DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince’s album, He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper. By high school he was competing in online competitions, and by college he was recording music while hosting and performing shows. Post college he maintains a job as an on air personality at Blazin 1023, in Tallahassee Fl. It is arbitrion rated as the number one radio station in Tallahassee Florida. He landed the gig in 2005 based on a relationship forged with the then music director in 2003. While attending LaGrange College Stess The Emcee became the local freestyle champion. LaGrange Georgia is 4 hours away from Tallahassee Fl. For seven straight weeks, Stess traveled, battled, won, then drove all the way back to continue his studies. Sometimes he made the trip both ways in the same day. Eventually he landed a job, and now he can be heard seven days a week on commercial radio. He is either on the radio, on a stage, or in a recording booth. He is a Hip Hop encyclopedia. He once stated, “I am the future because I took time to learn so much of the past”
