Story goes Fashawn, Exile and Blu are in Berlin, Germany right now for a small tour. They walk into a liquor store to get some wraps, papers, etc. Juice Magazine, a popular German-based hip hop mag just did a feature on Fashawn for his recent album, Boy Meets World but the liquor store doesn’t care. So he got kicked out.
My boy JK shot this video while with Exile at sound check for his gig at the Elbo Room in San Francisco this past week. As he came into the venue, he peeped Exile and Teeko jamming out on their respective equipment. Teeko has been making some noise with his group F.A.M.E. as well as recently working with Mark Ronson in NY for his upcoming album. It is great to see Teeko and Exile come together to create some amazing music.
I had the pleasure of seeing Alchemist DJ @ DJ AM’s tribute concert @ the Nike Theater last week, and needless to say I was blown away by his Dj set, headliner Dj Premier, and not to mention Dj Homicide, & Ben Baller who I’ve never even seen DJ! So much talent was there that night, it was unbelievable. It was for a great cause; the Belvedere was plentiful and I got to enjoy burning indoors with staff that wish to remain anonymous. Although, I did see and will show love to Kev Brown, WC, Krondon, Oh No, and MED, just to name a handful of the many artists that were in attendance. I got it in… and everyone only had good things to say about AM, NIKE, Los Angeles in general.
