Return of the BBoy 3 is a true underground Bay Area hip-hop event happening tonight at ClouD 9 community arts space in Berkeley featuring sets from the Living Legends' Sunspot Jonz and Aesop, Nac One, Mel Yel, Dub Esquire and his reunited old crew M.O.S. (Misfitz Ov Stylz). Like the Living Legends M.O.S.'s roots run deep in the East Bay hip-hop annals and date back to 1990 when the group first formed as the short-lived Rhymes In Progress in March of that year when the original members were Dub Esquire, Kid Haavic, a.k.a. The A-Double), Ron, and Deion.
"That didn't last long," the tireless Dub Esquire, who is now in his third decade of making quality - albeit under the radar non commericial hip-hop, said in an 2011 Amoeblog interview when tracing his Bay Area hip-hop history noting how another short-lived group Constant Elevation came next, before then forming M.O.S. M.O.S. member DJ Lex unfortunately will not be at tonight's event due to scheduling conflicts. Showtime is 9pm Friday October 10th. Tickets at door $10. ClouD 9 is located at 1320 9th Street (near Gilman) Berkeley CA 94710
