Friday Janurary 19th, 4 brands united to put on an awesome event for the people of Columbus; showcasing a night of Hip-Hop greatness called Snow Daze 0.5. The Cold Collection, GRG (Gods Recognize Gods), 72 Spectrum and Easy Co. brought over 100+ people into the Wild Goose Creative. Each artist represented their brand to the highest level and showed the audience what having a good time feels like. An upcoming singer of TCC, Jazi graced the stage with an RnB/Hip-Hop soulful sound that had the crowd in a mellow daze. After her set, alot of people like myself was amazed by the fact this was her first performance and how she stepped up to the plate and hit it right out the park in front of 100+ people. TCC rapper Static Res also represented and showcased to fans why they should take a listen to his latest project “Braindead” while keeping the mellow-hype vibe that the crowd was enjoying throughout the night. Snow Daze 0.5 also had the founder of Easy Co. Dylan Nelson in attendance. Dylan Nelson had artist such as Bhad Waiz (GRG rapper) dressed in his merchandise while he was performing on stage. Bhad Waiz was branding Easy Co. and GRG while having the crowd chant lyrics from his song “Riot” off his latest release called Bangers Only. 72 Spectrum rising artist Ananto and Ray Bun carried the torch as well, and proved to everyone that it’s just not about what you say, but how you say it, their energy was bananas (not in a fruitful way but more of a Gwen Stefani type of way lol), along with honorable mentions from artist such as Freddy Ponder, Didipark and Ped Paul.

Closing Words from Dru --- “Columbus Hip-Hop keeps on showing that WE ARE HERE TO STAY! Columbus do support each other, Columbus do have talent. I feel this show Snow Daze, is another step in the right direction for the music scene as a whole in Columbus. I don’t know why everyone agreed to calling it Snow Daze 0.5 but I’m hoping there will be another, maybe Snow Daze 1.0?? Who knows, signing off…..”
