All Vibes 

A lyrical hip-hop showcase curated by Nook and Kranny.

Cousin duo Mamou Kilambi and Odilcia Balondola started their blog Nook and Kranny ( as a way to cover Bay Area arts and music happenings from a youthful lens. Now, they’re taking their platform from URL to IRL for All Vibes, their latest music showcase. The Sunday evening show takes place on April 17 at Ashkenaz in South Berkeley and features rappers Fabes, J. Lately, Babii Cris, Clyde Shankle, Honey Gold, and Zee Will. These up-and-coming artists share a common emphasis on lyrical hip-hop, and have recently been getting buzz in the local scene. J. Lately recently finished touring to promote his album, the underdog ode Let’s Just Be Friends. Meanwhile, Clyde Shankle is a member of the hip-hop group Down 2 Earth with Dayvid Michael and Azure, and the trio is currently in the studio working on a follow-up for last year’s excellent Wildfire. Babii Cris, a versatile MC and producer, is getting ready to drop her newest project next month, as well.
