Ky-Mani Marley – Photos & Re-cap

Ky-Mani-Marley_honoring-the-greatest-(edited)Last Thursday, the second youngest of the Marley children, Ky-Mani Marley, came out to Denver to celebrate the 123rd birthday of Haile Selassie.

For those who have never been to Cervantes, it is one of Denver, Colorado’s, most talked about music venues.  Located in the ‘Five Points’ neighborhood just outside the downtown center, Cervantes is in the perfect location to draw a high energy, diverse, positive crowd to any shows.

Ky-Mani and his opening acts, Major Myjah and Denvers own, Tatanka, brought strictly positive vibes from the get-go.  Through their heavy bass rhythms, each group successfully rocked the crowd and together, created an environment any reggae/hip-hop lover would be proud to be at.

Ganjaology had the pleasure of attending and photographing the Ky-Mani Marley show.  Below are all original pictures of the night.

We want to say thanks to everyone who came out and made the night a special one!

Joell Ortiz & !llmind – HUMAN

2015-08-5 - Ortiz & !llMind

Joell Ortiz & !llmind have teamed up to create and release what some already consider a hip-hop classic album, HUMAN.  The initial recording of HUMAN began in March.  Over the course of the following month, Joell Ortiz & !llmind had written and recorded 11 songs which they decided to compile into an album and release on Roseville Music Group.  The name HUMAN derives from the idea that this project was as ‘human’ as a music project could get.  The month Joell Ortiz & !llmind spent in the studio recording was all about the vibe created and music collaboration between themselves.  Nothing more, nothing less.

Joell Ortiz & !llmind are going to be performing their new album, HUMAN, on August 5th at Cervantes’ Other Side.  Come out and get down to this spectacular album live!

Ganjaology Presents: Pussy Brunch – Chronic Kitty [MIXTAPE]

If you aren’t already familiar with the infamous ladies of Pussy Brunch, you’re in for a wild ride. This pair of bad girls take bedroom beats to a whole new level. We had the pleasure of kicking it with them during their set at What The Festival last month. It was ridiculously fun dancing to their stellar sound, and so – we decided to do a mixtape!

Hailing from the Labia Majora, Pussy Brunch’s Teagan Thais and Lauren Clayton are holding it down for the real hood. Their space crunkin’, booty whomp knockin’, bacon beats, are served along with a healthy side of turnt-up toast & twerky jerky. Their hand crafted blends of hyphy & thump chronic smackers, move through the speakers & stimulate your feelers. Bring extra panties caus’ their pu$$ypoppin beats will leave ya dripping to top off the cream in your coffee.

Peep the mix below, and please note: This is a PARENTAL ADVISORY release. Haha, seriously though. It’s good. It’s fucking good. So go ahead, prep those drawls and turn up that appetite for…
