Drippin SWAGu Art Showcase

Written by: Rell Stylez (@StylezWitSmilez)

If you missed Sharp With Art Group's recent art and talent showcase "Drippin SWAGu" at the Sanctuary Wholistic Art Gallery you missed out big time!

With the infamous DJ Ricochet rocking the show with his special brand of mixing, the show was popping bridging hot sounds with incredible art courtesy of the SWAG Team (Rell Stylez, Neef, Shiz, Tone Casso, and Jae Martin.)

As the audience socialized they were highly entertained by the talented line up of up and coming performers. President of the Hip Hop Party for the People and emcee Pili X blessed the crowd with his crazy lyrics. Flash Amorosos and his Star Enterprises crew tore the house down with mad swag and appeal. The gifted duo Blak S.W.A.G not only had the spot jumping with their fun energetic flows but also with their dynamic dance moves.
 Talented lyricist No Eaze dropped jewels to the audience with his insightful rhymes. Singer Tyshaniek  represented for the ladies with her soulful radiant voice.

As the show went on DJ Ricochet turned an art show into a party! Everyone was on the floor "wobbling" and grooving to the music. 

At the end everyone walked off satisfied with a good time. Especially the raffle winners of the loaded SWAG bags.

Thanks to all who came out!

Another hot show for the SWAG Family! Catch us at the next coming soon!

Shout out to our sponsors Greedy Carnival Clothing Co., Jae Martin, and New School Nation!
