Hey guys its been only the3rd day. and so much has happened. Just imagine…crappy virgin airlines…18 hours ?? wow thats some delay. I arrive to London only to grab my mega bus ticket for a 730 voyage and haul everything around. The funniest thing about getting to London is that when you get on the tube.
its called “cock-fosters”. That just makes me laugh.!
ok..so check it out…i head out to leeds..crazy night . i get up with Jed 104,a dj who saw me play with Raekwon when i bum rushed his show. His wife and friend greet me at this boogie club called Oceana and eventually we head out to to his pad in York. His wife drives on the wrong side of the road, but I get used to it, and realize this is York, not New York. Jed proceeds to look back and speak to me, and I keep getting nervous.
Next day we head to london and Im in trafalgar square spitting game to the ladies and all. I get a free bus pass and i’m all jolly. People use words like Brilliant and Proper. I head to the top of the trafalgar hotel where Jed is Dj’ing and realize that I will not make it to Shabbat, nor a meeting, so I decide to
We hook up…with Jed 104 and the homie Andy Freshney and good ol’ Idun (geoffrey) who basically rip on each other all night smoke mixed salads and crash a late night spot for food. Mind you. the late night food spots are funny.
it was here where I decided to be kosher. the guy says we don’t have vegetarian burger. i decided to say i’m vegetarian and he gets me this thing that is like “ehh” but I eat it anyway and Im so exhausted we proceed to kick raps at freshney’s. I can’t believe I ate that. it was like the grease trucks in new brunswick but with the possibility of foreign disease. London food is crap.
We are sorta like the movie swingers but in london and the boys are from York. The only deal is one of us is a Jewish Rapper, the other a married christian DJ with a daughter, and two single london-ites who, in september, head the entire street wear division of Stussy and Supreme for all of Europe.
SO thats how I got laced in all this fresh gear mind you, which happened the day later. We eat veggie stuff, and i head into the office of Stussy. ALife, Supreme and all of it. They’re al different desks. Its like christmas! Im not sure what christmas is , but I bet its what its like. (like Chanukah!)
So i get to pick whatever I want from this top shelf. Also an Alife store goes out of business and has all this stock left over so it gets to be on our feet. Why thank you fresh! in the name of awesomeness i buy a train ride which is just expensive as my flight, and enjoy the hell out of it.
Now I hit Bolton last night and managed to fall in love with a 18 year old girl name kaylee who cant pronounce anything I may understand (8 is ehhh and 0 is cerooohh) followed by crashing at the homie Mauri the chef’s house in manchester. In turn a 39 year old woman comes over who has a 13 year old kid, and i proceed to tease my life since its late and flirt with her, all to find out she has a kid and how old she is the next day. SO basically the age jump was 10 younger to over 10 older.
sheesh. I was given a a ride to my gig in a utilities van today and then rapped, and was invited back for a festival in aug 26-30. in London called Limmud London.
my life does not suck.. tomorrow i play with snoop dogg in amsterdam.

thaks to my Faceboook friends in london and amsterdam and paris and london.
SO first off….Last night was so spectacular..i wnt to say that I was on stage and I sold shirts and made money for the first time since saturday…what a groove..I was aimless..hopeless..my tour was cancelled!!
I didnt give up..i showed up to the raekwon show early…and managed to push my way on for a set…
i earned instant fame…i slept on a couch for a few days and suffered incredible jet lag…stayed up for 24 hours and rocked a show with Akil form jurassic 5. Mind you, while i hoped to find his tour, he said he just saw me on allhiphop.com the night before performing in Atlanta rapping in Hebrew!! (shout to my muslim bro from Atl!!)
Mind you this video helped me link with the gang and earned me some stage time, and earned me a trip on the rest of his tour…It goes to show you what hardwork does…
today is a day off and tomrrow rolls over to bristol so I am looking for two things..a meeting and a sukkah. luckily..while looking for a sukkah, there is a annual bash in NYC for shemspeed there must be something in london!!
ok its all love..so from bumruching raekwon to a tour with Matisyahu to some good old pizza with my fellow Jews on Sukkot..this trip is turning out ot be a friggin TRIP…
I gotta stay away from these londonians..boy do they sure party…! Im gettin a feeling that by this weather and food, it might be the only thing that relieves their pain.
you know I realize that by being in another country there are just different things in comparison to NY. ONe in hip hop, it seems I am surrounded by what I call anti-Israel/anti-semitic areas in general. I would never say this if I feel threatened or not..its simply out, people snarl when they see my star here multiple times and its been since the first hours i have gotten here.
maybe as my old self I would look to get angry. Being the news center of the world ( i realzie that London press is possibly more powerful then the US) they cater to the majority of their area.
See everything revolves around the money. bu when i sti down and realize that certain people want to take action against me just for being israeli..I laugh to myself and think
well my pops would want me to fight..I think…I want a place to stay (outside of jail..been there .rather not go back)
and I’d like to educate people on somethings..
1. Israel, although the news shows the contrary, is a democratic state with lots of nice cars, and ice cream shops, and booming businesses..and yes to your dismay, you will nto blow up.
2. if you are muslim, and you walk in the country, you do not get frisked more or hassled by soldiers at checkpoints.
3. You dont have to run away from me, i will not shoot you. and you dont have to thorw rocks.
4. Hummus is used excessivley and does not contain the blood of your children. (haha- just a joke guys)
In other words…this goes back to our parents famous saying..”dont believe everything you see oin the news/TV”
reporters report from one area, and a lot of news is staged…I have even seen it with my own eyes..
so anyways…I feel I have to state that because lots of peope who bought my cd are of darker skin than I am and lots of people who were “anti” me after my performance were of both skin colors..but non the less I gained alot of fans. What does it all mean?
My goal here in UK is that when people ask me questions, I can answer them in a logical way and point them to more information. check this out. it give you mucho info. if you want to know about my music, I can give you info. if you want a cd, I can give you info.
As a counselor I know that i get frustrated with clients on occasion.
You want them to know certain things, but as addicts and alcoholics, they are trained in doing the wrong thing because they have been doing it for so long..it takes time patience and the right guidance, day after day, to change.
but I can never hate or dislike people who have been given the wrong information. Our job is to re-educate the hate and bias in a logical way, for violence and anger never solved much. For now, as my boy SHI 360 says, be a “Nice guy”. It has always worked for me.
On another note, back to rapping on this tour…
off to somewhere in london tonight with the fresh raps and should havea show with AKil the MC from Jurassic 5…could be exciting!!
Here it is ladies and gentlemen…
Me live from starbucks..paying about 8 dollars for the hour on interent…few things you should know.

3 Jesus is promoted on hip hop fliers
4. the subway system is intense…its called underground
5. Tube is like railway system…a tunnel is a tube.
6. addiction is really addaction
7. i gave them 100 USA and got 53 back in English Pounds.
i havent experience tea time and just got here to the gig…unfortunately there is no gig becuase Rza cancelled so your boy is now looking to do gigs!!
and now by this…i am looking to do more and more..work and have a ticket to Ireland…its called hustle..you gotta hustle…lets see what happenes…good news is though ill be fine tonihgt as 700 tickets are sold and ill be performing at the gig.rokcing the house..just not on stage..haha
well…wish me luch..and wish my bank account more money for these interent connections…
