Recap of ROUND 1 for Tha Hottest Out Tour

What a trip. Tha hottest Out Tour started on April 23, 2010 at the Funk n Waffle in Syracuse NY. The day before the show, I received a call stating that One Shot and G Dash had an emergency so they couldn't make it. While walking out the door heading to Funk N Waffles, DJ R.E.D. Called me and said he was going to meet me in 15 Minutes at Funk N Waffles. I didn’t see DJ R.E.D. that entire night. Being the person I am I was prepared though. Several days earlier I had put some music on my laptop just in case something went wrong or we had an emergency with the DJ or whatever the case maybe. I want everybody to listen weather you are in the music business or not, YOU MUST BE RELIABLE. This is a business where your credibility counts. Here is a little business 101 when you are running late always pick that phone up and make a call about your tardiness. Back to the tour, when I got to Funk n Waffle's Young Notti was there with his little brother Sunny Boy. Young Notti and Sunny Boy had ordered a gigantic plate with waffles and Buffalo wings, after getting their food they proceeded to the back by the stage to talk about the show and the upcoming days traveling on the road from state to state. While bringing in the stage lighting I seen Black Man Preach talking to a lady I would soon meet named Sparkle. After chopping it up with Black Man Preach, I seen Runnamuck, we dapped up and he was talking about his TV show doing an interview with some of the artists so Notti and Sonny Boy went with him to do the interview. Meanwhile I had the music slappin in the back ground.  Sheridonna finally arrived to host the show, so we was about to get it in. Before the show started we did sound check to make sure everything was right. There was three Asian girls at the table right in front of the stage that was about to have the time of their lives. I notice people would come in just to buy food but they would stay for the show. The camera guy AMP finally showed up with Sabrena with some guest out of California. Notti came out did his thing. Sonny Boy did one some and had everybody asking is he going to do another.  JIMMY BLACK came out did his thing, looking fly like he always do. The last act of the
night was Sparkle. Sparkle is a revolutionist and you can tell in her music. She did a song about people being happy about themselves no matter what the circumstances are. The song she did was called KOOL. She had everybody singing and saying I'M KOOL, I'M KOOL. The feeling was amazing. Shout out to James and Hudd from CUSE DVD, they came through and supported as well. After the Syracuse show we took pictures, sign autographs, and sold out selling CDs. It felt great to be able to entertain those people like that.
 
We got on the road about 1:00 AM that Saturday morning April 24, 2010. We had a show in Stafford VA that evening at 5pm, so you know what that means, there's no sleeping unless you are on the road because it’s back to work. I drove for a couple of hours. Sonny Boy
took over the wheel about 3AM that morning balling trying to get to his destination. Good thing it was early as hell because he was doing 90 miles per hour until Young Notti took over. We made it to VA around 9 and some change in the morning. Being it was to earlier we
met up with Bagz from AY-YO and he took us to his studio. Before we went to lab, we was a little hunger so only thing I seen open was MC Donald’s, WHY? I ordered a big breakfast, telling them specifically what I wanted, and they still had my order wrong. I'm in the studio thinking I about to eat some pancakes instead, I had a biscuit and sausage in my bag, I was mad as hell. When I call McDonalds the supervisor was telling me some nonsense about that's what I ordered. I didn't want to go back and start kirking out so I just said forget it and gave the food away. All eyes was on the SUPERSTARS. We finally went to the Hotel and check in. The hotel clerk pretty much called all the female room service attendant and they was just in a daze that some hot independent artist was in their city about to shut it down. Peep we didn't sleep yet because we been on the road. By the time I look Bagz was calling my phone like BLACK I'm on my way. I'm like damn I was
about to get a little rest. I did what I did and got fresh feeling like a million bucks.  We were on the second floor with the balcony view. I was in room 242 and Notti and Sonny Boy was in 222. Bagz came and swooped up the lights and heading up to the community center.
After I got right, we dipped to the community center, about 100 people was right in front of the door waiting. We pulls up, you already know our swag is different then everybody else', so cats just steering like who the hell are these dudes? At the time we walk in the gym it's about 200 people there before the show started. An hour past another 200 came so you know it's about to get crunk up in there. DJ Reece was on the 1s n 2s doing the damn things. The show started with some VA rappers repping their crew and sets. There were over 15 acts just killing it every time. Young Notti went on stage to do his set, everybody was like this is one of the dudes on the flier lets see what he's going to do. Once he started his set he had all eyes and attention focused his way. The front of the stage was full with people bouncing and just vibing to Young Notti Music. Sonny Boy didn't perform but he held the camera down and had us hype as hell. It was my time to get on stage so I went to the back and started hyping the crowd up. Man we stayed back there about 10 to 15 minutes before we bombarded the stage. They was in for a surprise, when my set started. Yaw make sure you see clips on YouTube. We shut it down, Notti came up there with to be my hype man, we had the crowd going banana’s, jumping, bouncing, yelling, smiling, and just in disbelief that we was rocking this hard. We took the cake when me and Notti did the Remix to Who Tha Hottest out. The energy up in that building was crazy, there A and R Reps, Booking agents, Record Labels, Magazines, TV shows, I'm telling you how serious this movement is. AY-YO finally got on stage to do their thing, if you ever seen these
brothers perform you would know that they are very energetic. They was running and jumping back and forth on stage and off stage. They was dancing, dapping the crowd up, I mean to feel energy you would have to be there wow. Grade A Material was another group that held it down, big shouts to them. More artists came and did their thing after awhile, the boys in blue starting coming. First it was about 10 sheriffs and then they called for backup and it was a Rapp. We ain't had no violence, no ruckas or nothing. We was showing each other mad love and you already know, some of them haters rather see us killing each other (ya dig). But we are proving them wrong by keep doing positive things. The show ended late and the next day we had to be Charlotte.

We got to Charlotte about 5pm Sunday afternoon. We had to link up with Mezonic and Scobby from Dem Scrap City Boys. We didn’t wait for them because we wanted to see charlotte and promote, so we dipped. It finally dawned to us that we didn't know our way around. We
asked everybody we seen to give us direction but no one knew where we was going. We finally found the Red Sea after trial and error. It was about to be on and poppin. The bright lights was flashing and bouncing from the bass of the beat. Sunny Boy started the show; show his skills why he's one of the hottest out. There is so much I'm missing out, that's why next time you need to be there. Young Global, Scooby and the rest of Dem Scrap City Boys, Lit the Red Sea up with their energy, oh my goodness, the show was bananas.  There were these two girls named Kameesha and Bless. Kemeesha and Bless rock with every artist that came out.  Young Notti Killed it. JIMMY BLACK smashed it. Mezonic and them 1 stepping and 2 stepping.  The crowd demanded an ancour, so we all had to come back and perform again. History was
made. The trip back to Syracuse was long. Sonny Boy drove most of the way, what is so funny is the only thing that could keep Sonny Boy from not falling to sleep was Alicia Key song (Unthinkable, I'm Ready). Yo, this was a memorable Tour that proved with determination comes satisfaction. Round one is over, see you in round 2 of Tha Hottest Out Tour.
