Royal Entertainment Mixtape Release Party
Rooftop Bar, Mary Street
The party is about three young talented Caymanians who came together to create a one-of-a-kind mixtape.
Rapper/Writer Nate Dawg, R & B artist/Writer/Producer Givinz and Local DJ/Rapper Royal collaborated to produce a blend of R&B and Hip Hop called Weekend, said Royal.
“It’s called weekend because all of our recording was done on the weekend, most of the songs consist of things that occur on weekends, like partying, make-ups to break-ups, etc
“The mixtape is only a demo of what’s to come. We will be dropping an album in spring of 2011 if all goes well. We want people to come out on the 18th, get a free copy of the mixtape and just enjoy a night of local sound mixed with other Hip Hop and R&B tracks. Young and upcoming local DJ X-Rey will be there alongside myself, DJ Royal. It’s a recession-free event so that means free admission and a free mixtape.”
