The Do For Self Initiative hosted another live event on Wednesday, this time featuring soul and funk as the highlighted genre of choice. Usually, Do For Self gears their productions more towards hip hop acts but since hip hop has much soul, the natural order of thangs would eventually lead the initiative towards funky rhythms. Hosted by blctxt, the night featured performances from Jack Preston and the Dojo Collective, Richelle Brown a.k.a. Cornbread, and Naira. Each set was steeped in a beautiful cosmic energy. While all the performances were magical, I was particular fascinated by Cornbread. Shawty bad. Her presence on that stage made me wanna kick off my shoes, light a j, and engulf myself in the sounds. Also, T-Bird and the Breaks travelled from Austin, TX to headline and inject their own brand of funk onto the scene. They played a mean cover of Aloe Blacc’s “I Need A Dollar.”

I told y’all last time about how a Do For Self production is laid out: collectiveness, unity, and dope energy. Ain’t nothin’ changed. Definitely be sure to check out each artists’ Twitter to find out more about them. You are welcomed.
