Mikah 9 Live At Rico's Loft


I'm not sure the exact date this was recorded but based on the songs Mikah performs I would guess around the time he was working on the American Nightmare album. The show also takes place on Mikah's birthday and if I heard correctly it was his 41st 31st (Thanks to anonymous and Rueandfork for the clarification). For a live show the sound quality is quite good as Mikah flips through random tracks over different beats and ends with the crowd singing him happy birthday.

While i'm on the subject of Mikah 9 live shows, I heard a rumour about a show that took place not to long after Peace was in a car accident, Peace was in the hospital and Mikah called Peace and had him freestyle over the phone into the microphone for the crowd. I would love to know the story and if there is any audio of this out there. Enjoy

  1. it must be from before Myka turned 41 in 2010, he was born in 1969. I can remember that the first track was also on the Timetable album which was released in 2001. So it probably was his 31st birthday. The CD says "Recorded live at Anticon Presents, Rico's Loft, San Francisco on January 15, 2000.

  3. I was visiting SF from MN and caught that show–which was on his 31st birthday for sure–and it was pretty sick. I recall Mikah pretty much running down his whole catalog over random beats. Dose and Gel played, and Sole, and P.E.A.C.E. and DV Alias Khryst.
    My friend Dane videotaped the show... Wonder what happened to that.

  5. I have this on a handmade CDr release. I got it second hand (at a thrift store for 50 cents!) so I'm not sure of where it came from. The printed inlays read "Mykah Nine 'Live at Rico's;' San Francisco, CA-January 14, 2000. The CDr is broken into 36 tracks, though, and reads "all proceeds benefitting the Hakim Domestic Fund."
