Mikkey Halsted, Rhymefest, JUICE & Twone Gabz are "Blaxploitation"



Finally after almost four months the Chicago supergroup of Mikkey Halsted, Rhymefest, Juice & Twone Gabz have a name, and it's "Blaxploitation" aka BLX. The tentative name of their debut album is "The DuSable Museum." (you can read about their inception and download their first track in this post.)

Blaxploitation's first official concert will be at Reggie’s on June 17th 2010 at Mikkey’s Beat Battle. For consideration to compete in the producer battle send 2 tracks in to mikkeyevents@gmail.com along with your phone number. The subject line should read "MHBB Submission." Here's what Mikkey had to say about the upcoming show:

"I am pleased to announce that this month’s special guests will be myself along with my group members of BLX (Blaxploitation) Rhymefest, Twone Gabz and Juice. We will perform a few songs and premiere a few records off of our upcoming group project. These songs haven’t been heard anywhere."
