    Rakaa Iriscience Album release party / benefit for High Chief XL 

    1/3 of Dilated Peoples, Rakaa Iriscience, has just dropped his new solo album called “Crown of Thorns.” And to celebrate, he’ll be throwing a special album release party this Thursday night at Don Ho’s in the Aloha Tower Marketplace.

    But, above all that, this event is a special benefit for one of the real OGs in Hawaii’s hip-hop scene: High Chief XL.  The bonds are tight between High Chief and Rakaa, so it was only fitting that the album release be a benefit for him.

    Alongside Rakaa, a whole slew of Hawaii hip-hop talent will be taking the stage, including Tassho Pearce, Creed Chameleon, Mo Illa Pillas, among others.  DJs Compose, Delve, jrama, Subzero, and Channel Rock will be keeping the night going throughout.

    This all goes down this Thursday night at 7pm at Don Ho’s. $10 presale and $30 VIP Tickets can be had at Don Ho’s, Fitted Hawaii, and http://www.islandtix.com

    This show is 21+, so please bring an ID with you.

    Livicated to High Chief.

    Spent the whole day mostly offline and I come back on to find this news. Hawaii Hip-Hop lost an icon today in Walter “High Chief XL” Saole.  The High Chief held it down for the OGs in the hip-hop scene, welcoming young cats, like myself, into the game and help integrate the newbies into the established scene.

    I only got to chop it up with High Chief a few times, so my memories don’t run quite as deep as some others in Hawaii, but you definitely knew he was in the building at all times.

    As a tribute to High Chief, atypicalLIVING will observe a day of silence. Livicated.
