dj jAck iz back!
Been a minute since I posted an actual blog so here we go! I’ve been home about two weeks since the #CrenshawTour has ended gettin’ that home cookin’. The whole experience was dope! Lookin’ back thinkin’ about all the stages & all the faces I’ve seen over the course of a month & half. All the behind the scenes craziness & randomness you have to deal with before the curtain opens. Its really just about enjoying everything & not complaining about anything. Nobody likes a complainer & you will be voted out. It really hit us that we were really out there when we hit Salt Lake City, Utah & saw all the snow & freezing weather. Driving through a blizzard in Wyoming with blistering winds pushing our vehicle off the icey road. I was in fear of my life at points for real haha. Hittin’ Chicago & seeing how fast the word spread over the internet that someone in Nipsey’s crew was stabbed in a scuffle after the show. To the sold out show at the Howard Theatre with a crowd of 1,700 goin’ crazy! Then hittin’ New York’s premiere venue Highline Ballroom & smashing it recieving a great reception from the tough NYC crowd. Hitting Atlanta just to have the show cancelled because of the city being comopletely snowed out. Then all the way to Tampa, FL where the owner of the venue tried to insight a riot because Nipsey was unable to perform so he decides to get on the mic & tell the angry crowd to attack the bus. He almost got his head put on flat! Seeing Laura London at Nipsey’s soundcheck in Miami then seeing the internet take flame over the new couple goin’ public. Then in Texas where after our perfomance in Houston where two officers physically tried to force us off stage for no reason. What I learned from the whole experience of being on tour on & off stage is you have to demand your respect you can’t ask for it. Soon as you ask for respect you’ve already lost it. You gave that up. When Erk & I hit the stage we demanded that respect. Some crowds boo’d acts that hit the stage before us but that never swayed our confidence. Can’t let that affect you or the crowd will eat you alive & such is life. Being back home has been good to me I really missed my daughter. The experience really had me thinking this the life I chose & if I really want this I have to be prepared to be away from my daughter for long periods of time. Next month we back at it as we prepare to perform at the venues where the #CrenshawTour was cancelled for whatever reason. We’ll also will be hitting up Austin, TX for the #SXSW music festival. My first time at the festival so this should be another awesome experience & I can’t wait to get back to the stage!
