This is a “that’s messed up man” situation. Basically this kid from a Yeshiva removed Obama’s note from the Kotel, immediately after Obama left. He then went to Maariv and they published the note for all to see. I could just see this kid rushing in thinking he got his “picture of Spiderman” and he was going to make it rich….probably not thinking that karma would b-slap is a$$ moments later. You could read more about all this mishugaas, here.
(Note: we are only posting the note since its already out there and for that reason only we don’t think we will get b-slapped)
On to musical things though….Shemspeed will be heading to London for the last week of August. For the Shemspeed Open Mic fans, the next one won’t be till September. But, don’t worry, we are throwing a big/FREE Shemspeed party at Supreme Trading on August 14th. Just two days before Y-Love and Diwon are rumored to perform for a Hasidic crowd in a club around Monsey. Shemspeed is now booking the Sephardic Music Festival, which will take place during the nights of Chanuka (Dec 20th-27th). For all updated click into the EVENTS section above.
Shemspeed is an independent recording label and promotional agency highlighting cross-over music artists with positive and unifying messages. Founded by Erez Safar, an American-Israeli DJ/Producer, Shemspeed promotes over 15 dynamic artists representing a wide range of genres including hip-hop, reggae, and rock. These artists include Y-Love (revolutionary Jewish hip-hop), Diwon (Yemenite / Sephardic hip-hop, Israeli music and more), DeScribe (soul-awakening dancehall, hip-hop, & soul), and Electro Morocco (Israeli rock, dance music.) Shemspeed artists, collectively showcasing the diversity in world Jewish music, have performed with musicians as varied as Snoop Dogg, Lou Reed, Idan Raichel and Eminem; they’ve been profiled in Rolling Stone, SPIN, The New York Times and XXL; and they’ve been seen and heard around the world on various TV appearances (Conan O’Brien, CBS and BBC World) and global radio. Shemspeed’s mission is unifying people through culture and education, celebrating diversity and common ground. By way of this work, we add a public Jewish voice to multi-cultural, inter-faith, creative and collaborative bridge-building.
