so the day was very uncertain when I woke up sat morn…. I was amped because my boys FarEast Movement wanted me to jump on stage with them for Hot Import Nights(biggest import car show) and hype them up, but actually, it was more like I WANT THEM TO BLOW THE FUCK UP AND PUMP THEIR WHOLE MOVEMENT TO THE NEXT 3 LEVELS UP AT LEAST! so I had my normal shit, went into slight zen mode, went into my shop to get my jewels cleaned and I hit up James aka Proh to see if he got the VIP jumpoff situated. I leave the trap and head straight to the OC…. to the Orisue offices. normally, not out of hate, I don’t shout out other brands that people consider “streetwear”(I hate the fucking word) because it’s a conflict of interest to my endorsements… but man FUCKING CLASS ACTS ORISUE is! so I get to Anaheim and meet up with the crew, FM, Orisue, Yaboy and we get some food before we hit the venue. I can’t eat because these fux decide to hit a mexican spot (my lifestyle now = NO MEXICAN FOOD PRETTY MUCH EVER. smh) so after that, I get the nervous stomach feeling like, the stomach/conscious try to punk into thinking that failure is always a possibility and there are haters near, so beware of your surroundings… so the guts tell me to peep the scenerio out a little deeper and see whats really good. we head to the back entrance for VIP parking and VIP entrance and it’s all good, thank you HIN, thank you FM. as soon as I walk in, I see familiar faces and it’s on. My man Adrian Sidney in the house, so I know the photos will be right. but after pausing and not being self obsessed, I noticed THERE WAS LIKE 10,000 PEOPLE THERE! so I kept it moving like a dude in the service. Me and FM roamed around peeping out bitches, the steez, the whole thing. Even though I love cars, I didn’t give a shit about any whips in the show, I just wanted to be seen and for the FM guys to have a great show. Stopped by to say hi to: Lisa Fleming, Jeri Lee, Sophia Lin, Christine Mendoza and the Rosewood Royale booth and pretty much ran backstage because I didn’t want to keep making small talk. OH FORGOT TO MENTION!!!! the Show magazine booth had it CRACKKKIN! shout out to Vanessa & Kim Lee, their booth def. had the baddest breezies in the entire radius of the stadium.
I took a LOT of pics with peeps I don’t know and it was nice to see that people know me in different circles cuz I don’t run in that direct demographic on a regular….. anyways. I run into an old friend RasB from B2K backstage and in the tent, someone threw up in that bitch, so I acted like upper management for FM and any other artist and demanded they clean that shit up. wtf? IT WAS FUCKING FREEZING THERE. I mean breezies were walking with NO CLOTHES ON. like 7% of their bodies were covered thats it. I HAVE TO RE-ITERATE THAT IT WAS COLD AS SHIT! those girls are trooopers! so anyways….. showtime…. FM gets on stage to do their thing and to be honest? this is my first FM show ever. Kevnish, J-Spiff, Prohgress & DJ VIRMAN, you guy are unbelievably humble and we’ll get into more later…. but they got on stage with the swagger of 7 foot asian nba players. THESE FOOLS KILLED IT TO ANOTHER LEVEL! the crowd went nuts and they did a little west coast love medley and I had to GO IN! I took my shirt off and flossed my LOS ANGELES tattoo and then Quest Crew (the winners of this season’s america’s best dance crew) went in and did their thing! I tossed out some free cd’s and FarEast Movement just OWNED HIN’s Audience. they did their smash hit “girls on the dance floor” and it was game over….. we walked off stage, took some more flicks and headed to K-Town to do another show. lol. I met some of FM’s crew and again, DOPE FUCKING PERSONALITIES! I’ll keep it trill with y’all. I know I’m popular and I get stopped a lot everyday no matter what city i’m in, but I don’t need the extra treatment, especially when I mutually respect you…. I’m approachable and a nice guy, but these cats continued to show me HYUNG love for real! FM are just so fucking cool, I want to get back in the music game lightweight to co-sign them to all my heavy hitter music cats. anyways, FM rips the TOTALLY POLAR OPPOSITE CROWD that was inside the K-Town club and then we pop a bottle of goose and we hit Hodori for some mediocre korean food. Hodori fyi used to be the G spot. you go down there with a funny face and get filled with lead all day by the gangsters. but we all good anywhere. after that, we went to about 3 more spots to drink and eat MORE FOOD! I finally smoked some good cali kush and keep it funky? we had a goddamn college dorm smoke session right on the corner of vermont and olympic blvd in front of the whole world. lol. the whole night felt like an asian version of the movie swingers… except we’re flyer then them cats
I love you guys man, much love to everyone, If I forgot to shout you out, don’t mean I don’t care. I just gotta roll out to meet up with an old friend for biz/dinner.
