Check Yo' Ponytail 2
POSTED ON Wednesday June 10th, 2015

With his freshly dropped debut album, ‘Eat, Pray, Thug’ out now and several new music videos circulating on the internetz, Queens-based rapper, Heems, is ready to storm the country this summer. So, you can imagine how proud we are to announce that IHC + Topshelf Management will be hosting Heems’ LA date with yet another notorious Check Yo Ponytail party!

But that’s not all people … Heems (1/3 of Das Racist) will also be joined on stage by NY production wizard,  PictureplaneFools Gold Record‘s Bosco, and the hip-hop hair god SPEAK! . You don’t have to have an education to know that’s pretty much the sickest line-up of all time. OF ALL TIME.

So go ahead and snag that ‘Eat, Pray, Thug’ new new and pick up some tickets for the Check Yo Ponytail show on Monday, July 27th at the Echoplex.

… Too long to wait? Satiate your needs with Heems’ new video for “Damn Girl” in the meantime:

After 5 weeks of touring Trash Talk, with support from RatkingLee Bannon, & Together Pangea, ended their winter tour in Los Angeles on March 20, 2015. The final show ended with a bang as Trash Talk frontman Lee Speilman rallied the crowd into stage diving and of course forming a giant mosh pit. An Angelino himself Speilman proclaimed that Los Angeles is the best place to perform,”Not Brooklyn, not Manhattan, not Philly, Dallas or Seattle. LA IS WHERE ITS AT.” Must be true. PREACH! In time for their last song “Birth Plague Die” Spielman had everyone jump on stage with the band in true best coast homey fashion.
The only east coasters of the night, Ratking, gave an energized performance as fans sang along to every word of their recent surprise album release “700 Fill.” Producer Lee Bannon mixed it up with his experimental hip hop flavor going full throttle. Local rockers Together Pangea kicked things off with some guitar god level shredding.
Thanks to all who came out to this special edition of Check Yo and got down to a magic blend of grungy punk to hip hop and hardcore.
