Hip Hop and Love Tour

September 30, 2011  |  Uncategorized  |  Share

Out here in Austin, Texas right now on the road with the Hip-Hop and Love Tour. Show is coming along well, we are up there on stage for like 3 hours each night, lot of music! Really enjoying seeing the country. Luckily we have a real nice bus and we’re getting taken care of for sure so we really aren’t ruffing it.

Also check out Tabi Bonney’s new album produced by Ski Beatz. I played bass on most of it. Download here:

I am honored to now be officially endorsed by Aguilar Amplification. I will be using the Tone Hammer 500 on my 51 City US Tour “The Hip-Hop and Love Tour” starting this Tuesday September 27 In Tempe, Arizona. My group Ski Beatz and the Senseis will be backing up MURS, Tabi Bonney, Da$h, Locksmith, Mckenzie Eddy, Sean O’Connell and many special guests depending on what city we’re in. The Tone Hammer is super lightweight (4 lbs.) and sounds crazy. This is great for when I’m running around NYC gigging and doing sessions. Feels great to be an Aguilar artist, has been a dream of mine since I was a teenager. Be sure to check the tour website for the dates.

Heres a video of two songs by Olamide, the second one a duet performance with myself at the Highline Ballroom in NYC.  Olamide and I have been working together for a couple years now.  We have held down a residency on and off at the legendary Bitter End in the East Village for a while now.  This Tuesday September 20th and 10:30 PM will be the last performance from us there until I get off tour (well he’ll still be performing just not with me until I’m back). Don’t miss it. Olamide is one of the best up and coming artists in NYC.  Also look out for our live album dropping soon.

Today is the day!  I will be using this blog to update everyone on what’s going on in my career, life etc… I plan to post content for the many projects I am working on.  Also music, art, philosophy, and fashion stuff I dig. Here are a few vids of my work to get this thing started. I’ll start with two tracks I recorded on with two of my favorite MC’s of all time who I am truly honored to work with.
