Shawn Guala officially released his Packin Bags project at the tail end of last month. It comes in a couple of different versions. Those willing to support indie talent with a purchase can get a hard copy of the mixtape or a USB by hitting up Shawn. The tape contains about 13 total tracks and Mr. Guala is offering a few extra goodies on the USB. Otherwise, people can catch a condensed or album version of the collective on streaming services such as Spotify. The LP is a few tracks shorter than the tape. Since streaming is more readily accessible to the people, The Illixer decided to cover the amended version.
After about three weeks of intense promotion and preparation; the two year anniversary celebration officially went down on the 13th at Y-Not III. It was hosted by Kia Rap Princess, DJ Bangaboy Kritakal held down the tables, new face to the family Cyrena Martin (Mahogany Cares) came through in a pinch with sponsored gifts, and the Blaqlizt Music Entertainment team along side The Illixer staff took care of the business dealings. There were a fair amount of supporters that showed up too, ranging from mere fans to some of the 414’s most elite talents such as: Trunk Bussa, Super Ego, Rue The Poet, etc.
