Kid Capri In The Building, Literally



I would say almost none of you know about Powerhouse at The Building. Kid Capri owned this club (not literally) and had the crowd eating out of the palm of his hands. This is from a cassette recorded in 1991. Funny, some time in the late 90's, I saw Kid, and he told me he was going to buy the building that The Building was in, to re-open the club; and I can always get down with the idea of djs owning clubs. Coincidentally, I drove by the Building the next day and it was, ah, a pile of rubble. So much for that.

I read an article where Kid Capri's 52 Beats mixtape (not cd, but tape) was going for 100 bucks....DAMN !! I mean i'd like to get my hands on one of them joints, but i'd dont see myself paying 100 bucks for a tape. But he's still the MAN !!! If you happen to be in the D.C area this thursday June 21st, he's going to be at Club Love for the Yaris Dj vs Dj battle. Winner get 2Gs, plus gets to go to Chi-town for the finals. For more info on the battle check out http://www.yarisversusyaris.com/. I know about it coz i work for Yaris.

Powerhouse was the shit....all week...Clark Kent, Kid Capri, Flex right before he started the Mecca parties that turned to the Tunnel jail parties, remember Bobby Konders used to get off at Powerhouse on Fridays. How about Deep, Crazy Eddie's $1000,000 Bar, Payday, Maxwell House, and can't forget your very own Sheets & Pillows with the TFS guys from Forest Hills!
