California under Frustration (The Cuf done Paid Dues
Today the lineup for the 2011 Paid Dues Festival was announced and although the current lineup is amazing i have to say that I'm a bit upset that yet again Sacramento underground legends (The Cuf) has not made it on the bill. Now if your a Cuf head like myself then you already know why this is such an issue and how over due this really is, but for the rest of you please allow me to break it down.
Back in the "Golden era" of underground hip-hop their were 3 big crews breaking ground and raising the bar, those crews were, Hieroglyphics, Living legends and The Cuf. all 3 crews were powerhouses in the scene and pretty much showed us all how this Underground Hip-hop shit was done. for my self i found inspiration from all 3 but naturally i connected with The Cuf, it's always nice to support the home team right!?!?. throughout the years The Cuf had teamed up with the Living Legends on a number of shows, projects, tracks & Albums and continues to do so till this very day.
The Cuf them self has dropped multiple classic Tracks and albums, performed with many artist and expanded it's creative sound in the form of Deep Friend Funk Brothers and a few solo Albums to match. on top of that they were recently inducted into the SN&R Sammie Hall of Fame. I think that it's safe to say The Cuf has more than Paid their Dues and deserve to perform at the 2011 Festival. with their history and experience you think they would be a shoe-in but then again business is business i guess.
As a Turntablist and Hip-hop Junkie, i am always looking for ways to keep my culture and local scene alive. so out of my personal love for my city and culture I have decided to take the matter of getting The Cuf on Paid Dues in my own hands by creating an campaign that urges Fans and Underground heads alike to Join the fight and demand that The Cuf be added to the 2011 lineup. You can Join the "CUFarmy" and spread the word over at http://www.facebook.com/pages/California-under-Frustration-The-Cuf-done-Paid-Dues/166162470085569?v=wall
Let's show em what this Underground Funk is all about!!
