Ten years ago Boston's favorite dreadlocked emcee dropped Madness In a Cup, and this Saturday at The Paradise Mr. Lif returned to celebrate a full decade of reppin' the Bean. In front of a packed and energetic house Lif showed his appreciation for years of support by putting on a marathon set that was packed with old classics, new joints, and a bunch of sick cameos. Just a few of the highlights were "Washitup", "Earthcrusher", "Live at the Plantation", and an acapella version of "Fries", and "I Phantom". Towards the end of the show Akrobatik jumped on stage with Lif, and the two-thirds of The Perceptionists present proceeded to absolutely demolish the crowd. Performances of "Inhuman Capabilities", "Memorial Day", and "Let's Move" had the crowd screaming along to every word. A surprise appearance by Ed O.G. and a 10 minute Ak and Lif freestyle session were a fitting end to the Boston 10 year anniversary show. Truth be told, it was one of the sickest Lif shows I've ever been lucky enough to see. Dude absolutely wrecked shit. Below are a couple pics that I sniped after show while the crowd hounded Lif at the merch table.
