Last stop on the tour…..Reda, Poland! I haven’t been to Poland in about 10 years, since the Superrappin tour in 2002. I didn’t know what to expect, but when I got there, I saw nothing but Hip-Hop! They was going off on some Hip-Hop music….It was a great sight to see…and I had a ball…Next Stop….#OHIO

Tim at Madflavas.de always shows love when I come to Europe. He books me every time and every time I come to Duisburg, I have a ball. Big ups Tim! Thank you very much…The last time I came here, I rocked with J Dilla’s little brother, Illa J and Frank Nitt. This time, I got to rock with the legendary SLUM VILLAGE. The group is still making moves but now its original member, T3, Illa J & Young RJ. Needless to say we kicked it, You know how the midwest does! (The D and C.O.)! Enjoy the pictures…Next stop, Reda, Poland!

So needless to say, Cologne is like my second home in Europe…my distributor of over 12 years (Groove Attack – http://www.grooveattack.com) is based there. They have been showing me love for many years and as such many of the people there are like family to me….namely my dude Demi. I can’t put a picture of him on here because he keeps a low profile…LOL. But I enjoyed myself at Subway with my peoples DJ CEM! His Beatpackers party has been a regular destination of mine every time I come to Cologne! We had a ball…and later on I got to enjoy the city a little bit and even go digging! So you know I was happy! Next up….Duisburg, Germany with SLUM VILLAGE!

On the Road….Berlin

July 20, 2012

What can I say? Germany is like a second home. My distributor, Groove Attack, is based in Koln, so I have a lot of people in Germany. Berlin is one of my favorite places. I get to see my booking agent, Karin! (what up Karin!) who always takes care of me. I also got to see my dude B SKI – He was me and Fat Jon’s tour manager back in 2004. I found out is a comedian now! (check him out – www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gZLx24C7Kc) – I’ve known him for years and I can TOTALLY see him being a comedian! Ok…next up…Cologne!
