And finally, this…
So as the crew were already at the Dead Prez/KRS-One show and I was getting ready, I got this feeling in my gut. I don’t know how to describe it, it was just a weird feeling like, “here we go, let the bullshit begin.” So as soon as I walk out the door, I get a call. “Party’s over tell the rest of the crew”
For some reason, the show got shut down by the cops. I heard someone say it had something to do with permits, but I may be wrong. All I know is that the rest of the night was kind ill as well. I ended up catching Quinto Sol at Little Temple, and then roaming downtown LA. Shit was jumping off all night tho’, a couple of shoot-outs in the streets, and females seemed to be extra friendly for some reason. The vibe was bugged out all night. Go figure. Read up on the dead prez-KRS-One show that wasn’t at Davey D’s site. (Good looking out SV!)
That’s it. One ya’self!
