Words by LargeUp Crew

As on online publication with readers all over the world, sometimes we want to interact with our peoples in the physical plane. We also have some fly new items about to go live on the LargeUp Shop and figured we’d bring em to the masses at the 9 Mile Music Festival 2019 in Miami, Florida. The lineup was pretty epic to begin with, names like Shabba, Busy, Sizzla, Capleton, Spice, Mighty Crown, etc. But it kept getting more interesting as Bronx based band, Royal Khaoz, (whose single “Show Me Your Motion” premiered here on LargeUp a couple months ago) were added as a last minute addition.
