Jay-Z performs at Obama’s inauguration or Get Familiar with 5th Platoon

I stumbled upon this vid whilst searching material on Jay’s DJ Neil Armstrong.

The post read “Neil Armstrong performs……” which is a little misleading as Neil doesn’t appear to be doing a great deal in this vid. I understand that Mr Armstrong personally selected and edited the Obama speeches that feature in this performance, however they are somewhat blighted by the Jigga man instructing us to put our lighters up.

Do yourself a favor and check out Neil Armstrong. He is an amazing mixtape DJ who is not afraid to mix up the genres and does it all seamlessly without letting the cuts overwhelm the mix.

And while you’re at it check out his seriously underrated crew 5th Platoon consisting of Vin Roc, Do Boy, Rholi Ro, Kuttin Kandy, Daddy Dawg and the greatest battle dj of all time ie merg (who is now doing some awesome 80’s synth pop inspired leftfield hip hop productions under the name Throwy).

Do Boy screws Tone Loc back in 98

Rholi Rho back in 97, quite agile foe a big chap

ie merge doing his thing
