On 8/21, Shake Your AZZ With Nicky Da B at Club Congress

Posted By on Sun, Aug 19, 2012 at 12:00 PM

In another case of something amazing rolling across my Facebook feed, I present to you Nicky Da B's "Hot Potato Style":


Fact: I was hypnotized by the Conan O'Brien-esque mouth superimpositions the whole damn time.

The evening's show, brought to you by MEOWmeow Productions, will feature Nicky Da B, Rusty Lazer and Tucson's very own Jamie J.

From Club Congress:

Nicky Da B is at the forefront of the next generation of New Orleans Bounce Rappers. He is currently earning huge accolades for his most recent work with Grammy nominated producer Diplo on “Express Yourself” (currently in rotation on MTV and an NPR Song of the Day), his ground-breaking video for “Hot Potato Style” and his sold out headlining performance at the Sydney Opera House this past June. His style is deliberately smoother than many of his Bounce contemporaries (though his lyrics are no less explicit) and his delivery is very unique…lying somewhere between the rapid fire vocalizations of Jamaican Dancehall and the call and response party-style chants of NoLa Bounce, complimented by a rap lyricism not usually associated with the genre. He uses his voice naturally (and unnaturally!) to create the chopped vocal sound that many other rappers do via the producers’ magic fingers. His live performance is highlighted by several choreographed songs featuring his three amazing dancers and his DJ/Manager Rusty Lazer.

One thing to note, courtesy of MEOWmeow's Facebook event page: "This party will be ghetto fabulous and you are encouraged to celebrate such spirit in your most ghetto fabulous outfits."

You heard 'em, folks: Get yourselves all bootylicious and get on the dance floor.

Tickets are $6 for the 18+ event. Bring your own booty.
