Yesterday was quite a funny day. I was with my friend Sam...who's a great hand drummer from Kunming. We were on a mission to simply find a blank CD. We were in a super mall of 6 levels...the stores had fancy phones, cameras, and other gadgets I've never seen before...but no blank CD's ANYWHERE! It reminded my of that Russell Peters skit where he couldn't find clothes in China when the airline lost his luggage and he was like "Isn't everything made there?!"
So Nick (DJ DSK) and I played at the 4 year birthday party of Cat Walk...a cool club with lots of mirrors. Nick plays wikkid old school funk and hip hop mixed with turntablism...he also helps out with the b-boy competition "Battle of the Year" in several Asian cities. It was an interesting show of Chinese singers and dancers...and even a Backstreet Boys sing-along...serious! Today is the second half of the birthday festivities...should be fun. Hope I survive this raging stomach pain. Later.
Yeah I got approved for my Visa in China...so I'm doin back to back shows in Guangzhou this week. My show in Penang was a lot of fun. It was nice to spend time with my friends in Malaysia...and now I'm excited for the next leg of this tour...
Then I performed at part 1 of the Hennessy Artistry Series in KL. It was a "baller" type show. I was brought to the club in a BMW...and had to walk on a red carpet, do interviews, and get my picture taken a million times. I'm not complaining...but it got pretty nutty after awhile. The bill consisted of Caprice, who is a rising Malaysian hip hop artist...Starz Angels, an electro/ hip hop act from France...and myself. It was a crazy show...people were wasted everywhere due to a free flow of Hennessy til midnight.
Now I'm in Penang to do part 2 of the series.
I'm also waiting on confirmation for my Visas for China and Vietnam...fingers crossed. So it's been quite the adventure so far...and of course in this world of mine...the adventure continues.
