On Wednesday, 01.20.10 The Heavy Sound present Mind + Body + Soul: A Concert Event To Raise Awareness For Diabetes. 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.
