Chinky Eyed Fridays Presents FunkDoobiest Live At The Knitting Factory

CEB Events continues to host the hottest underground hip-hop shows in Hollywood. From The GZA to Psycho Realm, Chinky Eyed brings the illest underground emcees to ever rock the microphone to the West Side! This last Friday was no exception as CEB had the funkiest one onstage!

The line was filled out the door and around the block and underground heads waited patiently for the stars of the night. Funk Doobiest, Sabac of Non Phixion in his first LA show, and Mr. Hyde of Circle Of Tyrants were in the house! This was a night of true underground sounds and old school favorites, and the crowd was ready to rock! I made my way through the line with the rest of the LSLA crew and hit the door and after a quick stop at the bar, we settled in and watched the show.

Mr. Hyde was the first to perform, and he tore it down early! The crowd was amped for the Circle of Tyrants emcee as he took the girls back to the barn of the naked dead! After that it was time for the Sabacolypse, as Sabac got on stage! The LA crowd showed him mad love as his first show in Los Angeles was off the chain. After terrorizing the crowd, it was time for the headliner, Funk Doobiest, to take it back to 93! Son Doobie and Raplh M the Mexican rocked the house and reminded the crowd at the Knitting Factory which Doobie they B! As Son skip around the stage, he went through his hit songs like “The Funkiest”, “I’m Shittin’ On Em”, “Freak Mode”, “Rock On” and of course “Bow Wow Wow”. I was trippin' for a minute, catching hip-hop flashbacks of me bumpin' "The Funkiest" up and down Lafayette Road waaaaaaaay back in the day in Tennessee! It was good to see Son Doobie and Ralph getting busy again, and the rest of the crowd seemed to feel the same way!

Hip-hop’s elite stopped by to show some love to Son Doobie as well. We managed to chop it up backstage with Mr. Hyde, Mellow Man Ace and 2Mex stopped by to show some love. We even bumped into Adrian Grenier, star of HBO’s hit show Entourage, backstage! Seems he was next door, performing with his bandThe Honey Brothers” while FunkDoobiest was onstage. He kicked it with us for a second and rocked a ill (and I do mean ill) beat box while Mellow Man Ace kicked a freestyle. It’s a classic Hip-Hop Hollywood moment, and we got the exclusive video clips and interviews at Live Streams! For pictures from the show, make sure you check out

All in all, it was another great night of hip-hop music brought to you by CEB Events. Make sure you check out the next show. Shouts to Swess, 501er, PickOne, Mr. Hyde, Sabac, Mellow Man Ace, Adrian Grenier, Son Doobie, Ralph and everyone that showed us love at the show!
