2 words… “SOLD OUT!”
I can’t tell y’all how good it feels to see a guy I met inside an apple store who had heard of me via myspace and mutual friends and was very humble….. to tell me he’s rappin and I’m like okay, a couple cats in my ear like “yo the kid is nice, no lie” and then to hear it myself and be like; I haven’t heard or seen a cat like this…. in a very long time… He’s gonna win! flash 2 years later, we’re now good friends… I helped promote and even expedite shit for 40 on the So Far Gone mixtape… my man is the biggest name in rap today if not in music…. crazy… you’ve seen the youtube videos of me and Drake pushing through LA bumping SFG, the exclusive’s I dropped on my blog, etc… well I had to show my man proper love last night again. I’m fucking proud and Drake is holding down his town TDOT…. and he holds down his OG crew October’s Very Own of course….
anyways, I call up my man 40 yesterday and he says BEN FUCKING BALLER…. I can’t believe you’re calling me, I wish I was in L.A. (I was lightweight sad he wasn’t) and 40’s like man….. I’m having so far gone flashbacks to finishing the mix of the album in my hotel as I’m here now finishing the mastering of the THANK ME LATER album in my hotel room in NYC” so we chopped it up and it felt good… the love was still there and the energy is awesome… I’m fucking juiced to see the show.
We get to LA Live and Club Nokia and I’m like hold up…. yes 2 tickets under Ben Yang left for me by Drake? they said yes, you have VIP seating (best seats though) and VIP bracelets to go into the lounge etc… I’m like HOLD UP? HUH???? I’m supposed to have all access…. backstage the whole 9…. anyways, about 30 minutes, later it’s settled and I hit Drizzy’s room…. see my Young Money Homey’s and etc etc… shout out to Sujit! shout out to Big John (HEAVY FUCKING WEIGHTS STILL IN THIS GAME!)
and me and my girl chill in Drake’s dressing room rappin to everyone from Tyga to Big Sean to Lil Twist…
I missed Mike Posner’s show, but I got to meet him finally and it was a pleasure, so humble so cool, so fucking different from the average rapper, but he must be more than that… (btw, good job Dan Elitaste) I was surprised how many cats I have never met knew me or about me, it just felt good feeling all the positive energy…. I got to chop it up with Mike and shout out to my man IBN in the house, Amber Rose in the house, Travis Barker and FSAS crew in the house…. then my brother and fellow slauson boy, Nipsey showed up with all the homeys I see at my store…. and he rolled up a blunt with that good cali kush and then it was SHOWTIME!
walked up on stage with the homeys….. and I was ready to see Drakes 1st real show (the others were not necessarily premature, but not at this level of selling out clubs/event centers of 3,000 to 10,000)
I missed Mike Posner & Big Sean do their thing…. but I’ll catch up with them for sure….
Okay so it’s showtime… Drake opens up with FOREVER….
fuck the stories… let’s show you pictures
I’ll try to keep this part positive as possible, but smh at the nuevo serato dj’s that never owned any vinyl… makes me hate the new dj culture even more… this girl who was spinning early thought she was doing it. am I hating? definitely not, if someone can do your job better and should be in that chair without a doubt, then…. just stfu, y’all dig what I’m saying lol
so instead of heading to the official after party @ Vanguard, I was exhausted and had a flight to catch to seattle in the morning and I think after Vanguard, they hit up Drais….. I was beat… so while my fam was poppin bottles of ACE, I was doin this….
THANK YOU: DRAKE, 40, JAMIL, FUTURE, CJ, TEZ FOR THE LOVE!
MISSED MY FLIGHT TODAY….
SO I HEADED OUT TO SAN DIEGO AND I’M BLOGGING RIGHT NOW FROM MY HOTEL ROOM… SPOTS FLY! Drake pretty much booked out the entire hotel! so I’m gonna head with the lil homey catdicc jr to see Drizzy rock again at the UCSD event center…..
