MAGIC @ MERLINS

I’m kind of going out of order, from the most recent to the older activity, but what difference does it make. I’ll eventually get to the San Francisco trip with pictures in due time.

So, most recently I performed at Merlins in Buffalo as part of the “Green Giants Tour” with Loki (BKLYN), Atherton (CAN), Pauly Rhyme (The BAY) to name a few. Much respect to the Merlins crowd, which was possibly one of THE best shows in Buffalo in years…truly! This was my first time ever being inside of Merlins, as from the outside I assumed for years that I would not be welcomed for no other reason but for the fact that I don’t own chaps, a ZZ Top beard, a Harley or any hardcore body ink and piercings…word!!

I hate to paint that kind of picture, but that’s the vibe I always sensed during the times that I have passed by it. But, I was wrong I guess. It was a very pleasant show and atmosphere that evening for all the hip hop community performers and supporters. Although, I MAY be feeling the false sense of acceptance at Merlins, since there were no chaps, ZZ Top beards, or Harley Davidsons in the vicinity during that night of hip hop. Oh well! They missed a dope show.

Notes:
*My man Covito (what up!?) kept the performance order running nice and smooth. I HATE waiting all night to rock! Which wasn’t the case that evening. All acts were on point.
* My man J. Young surprised me by making his appearance at the show. I think it was his first time seeing me live. Thanks for the support Holmes…!
*Quetta and Aaron…Always good seeing you Q, and a pleasure to meet Aaron finally. I thought you may have been making him up for a while. (imagination..lol)
*Lo Pro, Loki, Pauly, Type Rel, Constant Cly, Trev, all the party people and lastly…my DAD! First time he’s seen his boy rock the mic in years.

peace
