G.I. Joe Killaz Tequila Lounge, Toronto ON - May 23, 2003
Published Jan 01, 2006There was a buzz circulating the most recent G.I. Joe Killaz show, with rumours that the Joe-hating crew was on the brink of change. Whether the signs of a new formation were musical, visual or just a new angle on their hopes of world domination, a crowd gathered to bear witness. Cobra Commander set-up shop behind his laptop, with the Cobra flag decked behind him, as Destro and Stacy (aka the Baroness) soon followed on stage and gave the crowd a full dose of their laser gun rap, tearing through their current full-length with ease. The use of a laptop is not nearly as exciting as cuts via turntables, especially during a hip-hop show, but their beats were still packed with an electronic edge and had necks snapping for those that dared to get close to the stage. Destro and Stacy exchanged lyrical skills, as they told tales ranging from slaughtering Joes to investigating who spilt juice on their lair's camouflage couch. But not only do the G.I. Joe Killaz put on a great hip-hop show, but they also bring out fellow Cobras, such as Major Bludd, who dragged out what was later confirmed to be the last G.I. Joe in existence. After torturing and using mind control techniques on the unfortunate prisoner, it was time for Destro to announce the new mission, seeing as hunting Joes was no longer an option. The crowd was stunned, as what looked to be burying the hatchet with Cobra Commander ended in bloodshed, as Destro popped a few laser shots into Commander's dome. Explaining that their former-friend was leading them nowhere fast, Destro and Stacy announced the end of the G.I. Joe Killaz as we know them and assured the crowd that the pair will re-emerge again, now known simply as the Killaz. The crew then fled the stage but the audience wanted more and convinced the duo to drop more tracks, even ones they had already performed. Both MCs have gifted skills, with Stacy taking it up even a notch further with her incredible singing, which laces their pulsating electro-beats. It's no wonder the people didn't want the Killaz to jet back to their hidden fortress. One crowd member loved the show so much that he proceeded to make an ass of himself and jump on stage, leaving Stacy no option but to announce her consideration to changing their new name to "the that guy killaz."
