For the past 20 years, he has been known as Crazy Ballhead, a well-respected hip-hop artist, writer, producer and proud member of the SAMMIES Hall of Fame. Today, he has evolved into Mr. Hooper and will soon be releasing his birth-cry. The Poet Go will be hosting a dual-celebration party at Blue Lamp (1400 Alhambra Boulevard, Sacramento) on May 24, 2014 heralding to the release of Mr. Hooper’s new album, The Highs and Lows of a Hero for Hire, and celebrating his upcoming birthday. The event is studded with a lineup including Retrograde Revolution, Mr.P Chill (with DJ Mike Colossal), NSAA, Left Rose and Lauren Wakefield. The doors will open at 8 p.m. for all those 21-and-over, with only an $8 cover fee. For more information, check out
