Killa Kyleon's Epic T-Shirt, Mixtape & Video Party: A Report

Saturday afternoon Killa Kyleon, who just started up a new team he calls Team Run It!, hosted a release party for his new "Don't Mess With Killa" T-shirt that turned into a mixtape listening party that turned into a video shoot at Check Other Outfitters.

Rocks Off went, hung out for some time, lifted a copy of Killa's most recent tape, Candy Paint and Texas Plates, watched them shoot a video, then wrote down some words. Notes related to the tape will be preempted with "#TapeNotes" and notes related to the mixer will be preempted with "#MixerNotes." Mali-booyah.

#MixerNotes Among the more interesting things that Killa addressed at the mixer were a) his new tape is already finished, and includes features from Scarface(!), Devin the Dude(!), Miss Mykie and more; and b) he used to be, and possibly still is, a graffiti artist. Some of his work actually ended up at DJ Screw's house before he passed.

Never knew that about him. That's cool.
