Mind + Body + Soul: A Concert Event To Raise Awareness For Diabetes


On Wednesday, 01.20.10 The Heavy Sound present Mind + Body + Soul: A Concert Event To Raise Awareness For mbs2Diabetes.  Not only is this concert free but boasts an incredible lineup of incredibly influential players in the hiphop.  The awareness event which takes place at Knitting Factory Brooklyn is hosted by Michael Rapaport, Okayplayer, and Phife Dawg.  Rapaport has spent the last two years working on a documentary about A Tribe Called Quest being produced by Nas.

Mind + Body + Soul also features live performances from Ghostface, Jay Electronica, Consequence, and Talib Kweli along with special surprise guests.  Not too bad for an event that is free with an RSVP (see flyer for details).   Only thing that could make this night better would be Phife reuniting onstage with long time Tribe collaborator Consequence (hey, would be great footage for the documentary).  I’d also settle for Rapaport aka White Mike grabbing the mic and performing ‘How To Rob An Actor.’  Doors open at 8:00 PM and its safe to say you’ll want to get to this one early.

    I was one of the lucky few to attend this. i got in through a friend of mine and the rsvp line was crazy like kallywood was saying. lots of special guests (krs one, greg nice, and tons of others) but highlight of night like deadlymelody predicted was Qtip and phife getting together with consequence and reuniting. tribe was together on stage for the first time in a LONG time!!

    Didn’t Tribe do Rock the Bells 2 years ago? I would have loved to see Jeru, never saw him. Does he perform on the regular?

  9. kallywood :
