I’m horrible at taking pictures at events lately. This month I went to Florida to catch the finale of G-Eazy‘s Endless Summer Tour with Ty Dolla $ign and P-Lo (but I have absolutely zero pics from that so, that’s cool…), I went to Oakland for Rolling Loud Bay 2018 (which I have exactly one photo from, LOL) and I went to Mozzy‘s listening session here in LA with all the Bay homies.
Our podcast had a live show at SXSW this year, so I went down a few days early to catch some shows and have some fun! I had the pleasure of seeing Atlantic artist PJ perform a few times as well as NEF The Pharaoh, Tdot iLLdude, Mike Zombie and Chill Moody.
Thank you to Annie at Mass Appeal for taking care of me at the Mass Appeal BBQ (featuring Nas, Dave East, Mannie Fresh, Cipha Sounds, Yo Gotti and many more) and the Mass Appeal Brunch! Shout to Chuck Creekmur, DJ Carisma, DJ Damage, IAMSU!, P-Lo, Kehlani, Kamaiyah, Nineteen85 and everyone else I saw/met/got drunk with, LOL. So glad I got to see the Illmore in its last year! And the FADER Fort was dope too.
Off Kool John’s latest release, $hmop City, he links up with his HBK brother P-Lo for the visual to “B*tch I Look Good.” Of course – there’s no shortage of Bernie’ing and dope graphics, as expected from the Heartbreak Gang! Get into the Adrian Per-directed video below!
On Wednesday afternoon, the Bay invaded NYC as IAMSU! stopped by Hot 97 with Kool John and P-Lo to chop it up with Cipha Sounds. The HBK guys were on an off day from the “Under The Influence” tour that they’re currently on, a 22-city nationwide trek alongside fellow HBK member Sage The Gemini, as well as Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, Mack Wilds, Rich Homie Quan and Jeezy.
After Suzy 6speed discussed life on the road and adjusting to his ever-growing success, P-Lo and Kool John chimed in when the topic of ladies came up, particularly those that they come across on tour. Ever the enlightened one, Kool Daddy dropped a dime for the listeners and shed some light on the “new age groupie.” Upon further review, I think I fall into this category. (Joking obviously but my photos certainly reflect that, LMAO!)
