So it’s been a real cool couple of days …
I took a few days off to kick it but i’m still doing my morning ritual.
the morning was spent chillin’ & reading. then rockstar cuz ask if i wanna go hang w/ him & lil cuz for a second. and we roll out and go meet his boy at the end of the block. he’s this cool english cat w/ this artistic flair for fashion and music. he’s just real cool. this great positive vibe. we walk and talk. then grab some school books for lil cuz. while walking he talks about doing a string of shows and then having to cancel a few recently because of a health issues. we stop and grab food afterwards. charlie hits us with a jokes and then pulls out this e-ray he’s been carrying around and tell us why he’s messed up right now due to this issue! i’m looking at the x-rays in amazement because i think that i can see something a little messed up. but hey … i’m no doctor and he’s been seeing specialist regarding the issue. anyway … i play it off. he tells another joke and we part ways. he’s gotta get some rest. real cool cat.
So later that afternoon … my homie welela hits me on e-mail and says bobbito is spinning in paris tonight. I’m like “word”! give me the details and lets do it! She’s like hit me back at 9. cool! I can’t wait so get my research on and find out spinna’s with him and that they are doing the 1st stevie wonderful party in paris!
Rockstar cuz and I are like yea we’re going out tonight. Welela decides not to go! so rock star cuz & i try to reach out to few people because … i’m spoiled and don’t like to pay. Nothings working for me .. nor for him. We decide that we’ll use the swagger/mervin technique = we’ll just walk up like you’re supposed to be guest. So the time comes and we get ready to roll but lil cuz to isn’t in bed! She’s 13 and hella responsible so it’s not a issue so we’re out.
We got to the venue as they were switching over from a previous event.
Rockstar cuz talks the talk and we get in. as we’re walking in someone screams his name. It’s bobbito. And we all walk in together!
As bobbito & spinna are setting up we’re watching them break down the venue from the previous event which evidently was a seated event. as they slide the theater style seating under hidden compartments and transform hallways to coat checks i’m amazed! with the tucked away technology and hydro lifts for sections of the floor, it is UNQUESTIONABLY the dopest mid size venue i’ve ever been to. [la bucalana] The production dude in me is going crazy looking at it all! Then a young lady walks up to us w/ 2 glasses of champagne and welcomes us to the event. We look at each other … ok … uhhh … yea … “we’re glad to be here, thank you!” More talk with them and then some industry talk between us and then … we sit down and listen to spinna & bobbito warm up. a few minutes later the doors open to the public. And it’s on …
20 minutes later … we find a little corner on the dance floor and i’m gone… lost in the music!
4 hrs later … after a few pounds of sweat loss, rock star cuz says … I wanna check on [lil cuz] … so … we roll out. He stops for a second break outside the venue just to cool off. I’m standing there waiting and this fly sister walks up and says something to me in french. I’m so tired that I just nod. She sees it in my eyes and pats me on my check, looks me in my eye and says “awwww.” I think that was the first person in paris to flirt w/ me. i’m honored but too tired to really think about it until now … Anyway … the cats that threw this are called free your funk … dope in concept and implementation. the kind of cats JUST BCUS wants to link with .. we’ll see what happens.
so we go to the street to get a cab … but guess what … brothers can’t get a cab! Even in paris! We end up walking home! We make it back and the story is over!
and for those of you that were wondering if i was really in paris … because i didn’t post any pics … i did this …
i’m going to a poetry joint this week … i’ll keep you posted!
Until next time …
