...The format of the show was similar to what Jay and I talked about last year in Vegas (I told him to do a ramped up okayplayer tour style review with him, Rell, Ush, T.I., Kanye and Mary---and just make it one big ass mixtape on tour). I guess this is baby steps towards that direction.
Night one (which the first night is never the best night of a new tour) was not bad at all---for starters there were multiple dress rehearsals done at the University of Miami. How this massive ass production managed to sneak on campus under the radar without one hottie gone wild knowing is beyond me.
We did 2 weeks of rehearsals---one week in LA then in true Jay style he gets rid of his band... with under a week to go.... and its up to all the kings horses and kings men to put humpty back together again. So the call was made to use the og "American Gangster" band who Puff uses when he is touring and former illadelphonic Omar Edwards as the musical director. Really all they needed was some coaching being as though the average young black musician is part of the gospel chop generation.... Imma miss not touring with those cats. I'll periodically show up from city to city and give more updates. A good time was had by all.
Sidenote: This is a straight up "I love you Jay !" Stan Moment LoL [ 1 / 2 ]
