David DiGioia and Greg Houston, aka Watkins Empire and Spoken Emotion, dropped into the studio to show us that hip hop is alive in Boulder. Houston freestyled some verses, and DiGioia delivered original beats and slide guitar played with a lighter.
The duo were a reminder of why this series is an Annoying Paul Production, keeping our videographer on his toes with shenanigans in the downtime. Ashley had her iPhone out to capture some of the fun.
You can catch Watkins Empire live at The Underdog on July 28 and pick up his dubstep EP Allusions to Grandeur, out on Aug. 18.
What they brought us: Nothing. They forgot. But DiGioia did offer us some wrappers from the floor of his car.
