REVIEW OF RAPHAEL SAADIQ SHOW @ THE FILLMORE 3/21/09


Last night my partner Larry and I went to see Raphael Saadiq @ The Fillmore in NYC. That's why the site wasn't updated last night as it usually is. We are working!! lol. Below is a review of the concert written by Larry Jenkins who is part of the 238BEATS ENTERTAINMENT GROUP. Expect big things from us in 2009.

Last Night the 238 Team capped a two night back to back episode of events by taking in a live performance by former Tony Tony Toni Tone and Lucy Pearl front man and now solo singer Raphael Saadiq at the Filmore in New York City who thanks to LND provided us with choice VIP accommodations-thanks Ladies-lol.

This is a hip hop site people right- some may wonder, so why include a review of a soul singer? Well to coin a popular hip hop phrase that we at 238 Beats utilize and believe in “Do the Knowledge”. Raphael Saadiq has long been a member of the Hip Hop nation working with hip hop artists such as EPMD, DJ Quick, Snoop Dogg, The Roots, Ludacris, Devin the Dude and my personal all time favorite A Tribe Called Quest which resulted in a membership of the hip hop production crew the Ummah-consisiting of Q-Tip, the late J-Dilla and Ali Shaheed Muhammad who later joined Saadiq and En Vogue’s Dawn Robinson in the super group Lucy Pearl. On a side note I was able to chop it out with Shaheed briefly and look forward to hearing his new projects and hope to have him spin at our classic Thursday’s this spring.

Saadiq took the crowd on a musical roller coaster and time machine ride starting the night off with songs from his latest opus, The Way I see It, which evoked the feeling of the early Motown era consisting of harmonized vocals that sounded just as good as the studio release and choreography that rivaled that of the Temptations and The Four Tops singing soon to be classics like Sure hope you mean it, 100 yard dash and Oh Girl (which features Jay-Z on the remix).

He then took the crowd back to Tony! Toni! Tone! days with classics such as It never rains in Southern California and Just Me and You which had me feeling like I was in co-op city at Bay Plaza watching Boyz in the Hood for the first time in 91’.

Next he performed hits from my favorite CD of his titled Instant Vintage such as “Be Here” and, “Oph”, which is the best utilization of the Tuba in modern music. The beat is crazy and picks right up from where Dr. Dre left off on the Chronic 2001 with Still DRE.

He finished the night and set by trailing back to his latest CD “The Way I see it “by performing a soulful and New Orleans sounding social commentary on the Katrina catastrophe and handling titled “Big Easy” which puts the audience in a spiritual trance and the shoes of those affected first hand by one of the worst events to happen in US history”.

But wait…this is New York City and certain things are demanded and expected! After a crowd demand for more, Saadiq obliged by hitting the stage for an encore to perform in my opinion one of the most overlooked soulful classics of our generation from Instant Vintage titled “Skyy, Can You Feel Me”.

Last night was proof that in the words of Kanye West…Good music and a passion for the music still exists. Keep the beats moving and progressing!

BIGGIE'S LAST PARTY

I had to post this for my site. This was a tragic piece of history that you have to watch if you have not seen yet.
