mc pigpen
WOW.. what can I say. These shows come out of no where. Oklahoma city was live as hell. Thank you so much for the love everyone. We walked up in this southwest artsy neighborhood on a cofee shop with a venue attached to the side slightly confused. BUT, let me tell you this turned out to be one of the best damn nights of the tour if not ever. .Soo many people were there to just hear the music. We felt a tremendous amount of love and support. And the other performers were insanely dope. Dewey binns. 8 bit cynics put it on. and im sayin if this is how OK pops i will be returning many many times.. check the atmoshpere.. it was sick



So after meeting BK one and going to rhymesayers store in MINNEAP. we rocked a show down by the river at the NOMAD.. Shit was crazy they had a stage that folded down on top of the pool table and all.. AND like 500 different beers. Too bad I don't drink huh? haha.. Anyway we rocked with wide eyes, derril pounds, and the new true blue home daniel heavens. turned out to be an awesome night. OH and did i mention we had like a hour long freestyle jam session with the live band.. very ill.. MUCH LOVE MINNEAP..
