Blue Scholars at Next Door this Saturday

Jake and the genuineHI have one last surprise for the people of Hawaii: an epic final show at Next Door featuring Seattle’s finest, Blue Scholars.

They’ve been all over the place recently, riding the wave of success that followed the release of their “Bayani” album.  Geologic and Sabzi have been on the grind, oepning up shows for the likes of the GZA, Hieroglyphics and Q-Tip.

This past December, they held down the Pacific Northwest’s first local hip-hop showcase called “The Program.”  They headlined all five nights at Seattle’s Neumo’s and proved to the world that Seattle hip-hop was on the come up.

Now, to bridge Jake’s present to his future, the Kings of Seattle hip-hop will be in the building in Hawaii to bring the crown prince of Hawaii’s nightlife scene to the Pacific Northwest and Seattle.  But, this shouldn’t be mourned as the final event for genuineHI (for now).  This should be looked at as probably one of the doper shows you’ll experience this Summer.

Also on the bill will be The Soul Pacific, DJ Bumblebee and Kavet the Catalyst.  So, this will be a great time to get that quality time with Jake before the big move in mid-July.

The event goes down this Saturday night at Next Door, starting at 9pm.  21+ are welcome, so keep the kids at home.  Tickets are $20 presale and can be acquired via or in person at exclusive.

See you guys Saturday at Next Door.
