LOS ANGELES, CA – (November 11, 2004) –- Hip-Hop’s most famous Collage Drop Out, KANYE WEST rocked the charts with such hits as “Slow Jamz,” “Through the Wire” and “Jesus Walks,” rock Los Angeles on Monday November 15th at Club SixteenFifty with the “Heavy Hitters UNPLUGGED hosted by L.A’s DJ Felli Fel of Power 106 and IMP Entertainment.
Felli Fel has been reined as the number one DJ and host of the top ranking nighttime radio show and station in Los Angeles, where over 1.6 million listeners spend their evenings tuned in to hear an animated on-air personality who releases nothing but ‘blazing’ Hip-Hop and R&B seven days a week to Los Angeles and its surrounding cities who hear the best of all the rest with seven top-shelf radio ratings books to prove it
Time is obviously tight for West these days. After making a name by producing platinum hits for Jay-Z, Alicia Keys and Ludacris, everyone wants a piece of him. It’s understandable: Regardless, West quickly jumped at the chance to team up with Felli. “You know I’mma represent for my Heavy Hitter Family (Felli) for showing me much support. He let me rap on the radio with my jaw wired,” expressed Kanye West. The Chicago born rapper even incorporated this into his sampled mouse-like Chaka Khan track with hilarious lyrics about his car crash in “Through the Wire.”
“To do an unplugged event incorporating Kanye with a live band is gonna be crazy, and just one of the many Heavy Hitter Unplugged events to come,” concluded Felli.
