Had a great time yesterday hanging out with Rick and Steve Crain, helping them integrate CLRCASE into their new hip hop memorabilia wall.
I love what Rick & Mike are doing with their Delicious Pizza concept: the world's first hip hop pizzeria. Great food, great music, great vibes. What a genius idea. The Delicious Pizza enterprise is run by two kind and hard working brothers with roots in golden era hip hop with their label Delicious Vinyl. Through their label they've helped to curate classic records from the likes of the Pharcyde, Tone Loc, Young MC, Masta Ace, and more recently J Dilla and Illa J. I cannot thank Rick enough for his hospitality, and for seeing how CLRCASE could add the museum touch to their legendary memorabilia wall.
Delicious Pizza has 2 locations: Sunset (Hollywood) & West Adams (LA). Their Hollywood location is home to a pizzeria, record shop, and event space on the first floor, and the Delicious Vinyl HQ upstairs. Their location on West Adams is a pizzeria and outdoor event space, located right down the street from where my grandparents and family used to live (Crenshaw & Adams).
Both locations host a number of live events throughout the month; everything from DJ's, to comedy shows, to film screenings. They were preparing for T.I.'s traveling Traphouse museum exhibit, serving up pizzas, meeting with the health department, re-stocking records, and coordinating upcoming events all while the CLRCASE's were being installed. Rick gets busy.
Here are a few photos of the installation. Steve Crain did a great job with this. It was great hanging with Steve, talking old records and helping him with the installation.
