Extreme sunshine with 80 degree weather, three stages and a very talented lineup is what greeted Indie Hip-Hop fans that attended Paid Dues Festival in San Bernadino last Saturday. Sponsored by Guerrilla Union who provides superb venues such as SmokeOut Festival, and Rock The Bells, Paid Dues featured over 45 Independent Hip-Hop artists featuring well known players like Wu Tang Clan, Three Six Mafia and Living Legends to up and coming artists including: Psalm One, Las Rakas and Tayf3rd. Grindtime battles and some fly DJs filled time in between sets. Straight out of the Inland Empire, Noa James, who put the IE on the map as one of underground Hip-hop’s breeding grounds was one of the featured hosts and also performed at the Paid Dues Pre-Party at House of Blues.
With three stages jammed-packed with some of the best Indy Hip-hop entertainment that started at noon and didn’t finish up until well after midnight, concert goers definitely got their money’s worth of some sick performers, some who were hitting a large venue for the first time. Hail Mary Jane was there covering the artists both onstage and backstage. HMJ snagged some exclusive interviews with artists such as: Noa James, Curtiss King, Maddillz of Grindtime Now, Rah Digga, Los Rakas, Pslam One, P.O.S. of Doomtree, Moe Green and Tayf3rd, so look for those interviews in the upcoming weeks here at HMJ.
There was a lot to be seen and definitely heard at this year’s Paid Dues Festival including glass vendors, lifestyle gear with lots of food booths to grab some munchies and a fountain of beer flowing. Not enough marijuana in my opinion though! Hail Mary Jane gave away VIP passes to Paid Dues to some of our Greenies too! We hope to be able to give away tickets for all the events we cover, so stay tuned and keep Hail Mary Jane on your favorites lists! Rock the Bells is next, see you there!!
