Bodega Brovas Performing Live in St. Louis

“It’s going to be a lot of fun! We are gonna offer an experience…we are not just like three guys on stage just rhyming, the audience is every bit apart of the show as we are”.

This Saturday catch The Bodega Brovas (Headkrack, Travii, and Keynote)  as they ‘Show Out’ at the St. Louis Underground Music Festival. Krack is no stranger to the Lou having rocked a couple stages in the past, nor is he a stranger to our own hip hop scene. “St. Louis got so many dope cats, like in the city, that like real recognize real whether you talking Tef Poe, Indiana Rome, Family Affair and Vandalzym, you guys [St. Louis] have a hell of a Hip Hop scene”.

I got the chance to talk with Krack about his upcoming show here in St. Louis and about his time in radio. The man whose favorite struggle meal was Totino’s Party Pizzas as a kid has come along way from his Bronx, New York beginnings.  An integral figure in the top rated and nationally syndicated Rickey Smiley Morning Show, On-Air Dish Nation On Air personality, and last but not least a true Hip Hop Emcee and member of the Hip Hop group The Bodega Brovas. Headkrack certainly stays busy. The Brovas are touring and will be releasing their next project on July 15th.


“The whole SLUMFest crew is excited to have The Bodega Brovas come and close out the show”, says organizer Robert “RobBoo” Ford. Nato Caliph also a Slumfest organizer has spoken with Krack and mentioned to Ford how excited the Brovas are to come to our city to perform. Now in its 7th year SLUMFest is continuing grow in popularity, attendance, and influence according to one festival fan who says, “The Bodega Brovas coming to STL for this festival is proof that St. Louis represents Hip Hop and more will come”.


A man of the people Krack told me that he is always willing to listen to new music and feature hot material on his on own blog. There are even times when something hot may make it in a mix but there are no guarantees.
