DJ Los, a Detroit Hip Hop legend, celebrated his 40th birthday in high style at The Foundation of 5e Gallery on April 17, 2012. The evening was a celebration of great music and community, as some of the city’s greatest rappers of all time showed out to perform on the same stage in what is being considered a historical event for the city.
Guest artists included Awesome Dre with Doe Dubbla, Boss, Njeri Earth, Merciless Ameer, Dice, 5 ELA, Moe Dirdee, Konphlict and Alius Pnukkl, along with a special Foundation cipher led by hosts Mahogany Jones and Nik Nak, backed by a band with DJ Los’ father, P-Funk legend Carl “Butch” Small.
