The Smokers Club – Denver recap
Last Friday, Halloween night, I celebrated the festivities at the first annual Halloween hotbox aka Smokers Club at Gothic theater in Denver, Co. Which featured Method Man & Redman, B real from Cypress Hill, Berner, Mick Jenkins, and Trademark the skydiver.
The minute I stepped foot in the venue it had already smelled like a Redman and method man show, that great Colorado dankness was present. Opening artists Trademark and Mick J got the show started and really hyped the crowd up with some new original hip hop music. After that, Berner hit the stage with a huge welcome from the crowd. Before he even started his first track he lit up a big ass spliff and passed it into the crowd. Berner killed it with tracks like bad 4 ur health, wax room, 20 joints. And then B real came on stage and they dropped their track that they did together called “shatter.” Berner finished up with B real and dropped a few other tracks they did together and then B Real kept it hyped.
B real wasted no time with lighting up a fat blunt and dropping classics like I want to get high, hits from the bong, insane in the brain, and my personal favorite “Dr Greenthumb.” When this track dropped the cloud of smoke got thicker, with more blunts being passed and vape pens being filled, joints rolled, bowls packed. Making it a true og Smokers Club in Gothic. At one point one of the security guard says to me, “Hey, next time you get passed that blunt can you blow the smoke in my face? I can’t legally hold it because of a contract i signed for work, but that doesn’t mean I can try and catch a contact.” I said, “I would be more than happy to help you out with that!” This really had me laughing for a good 5 mind and I had to share with a friend.
At this time the crowd was getting anxious for Red & Meth to hit the stage. Finally the Dj announces that they are waiting for Redman to enter the building. 5 Mins goes by with no sign of Redman yet. So Method Man started the show without him. He came out in his costume Smoke face killah (old school hockey mask and donning a weed plant bathrobe) to the track of “release yo delf”, while waiting on Redman to still arrive Method also played tracks 420 and is it me. Still no Red yet, so Method Man brings out Streetlife to fill in for him. Together they drop some classics including some Wu tang hits like “protect ya neck,” “cream,” “ice cream,” “da mystery of chessboxing,” “Wu ain’t nothing to fuck with,” and a few others. At one point Method got real emotional with the crowd, asking them if they missed old dirty Bastard like he did and if they did to make some noise. Then he dropped a ODB track, leaving the crowd with good spirits and high emotions.
Before ending the show Method Man made a promise if he doesn’t return with Redman, he is gonna bring the whole Wu tang clan with him next time. I’m already getting excited for this show in the future. I’m happy to have spent my Halloween with some chill people enjoying some proper hip hop!
