“I am sezza man from the royal fam never ate ham, never gave a damn”

The collabo between IAM and the Wu Tang Clan wasn’t the first time I heard this legendary rap crew but it is my favorite cut and one I was willing to invest in to own on vinyl.

I dug this show. It’s pretty wild how big of a following these dudes have to fill a venue in Lauderdale on a Wednesday. Nobody spoke English at this show. Which makes sense because the dudes on stage didn’t really speak any English either.

The show was pretty well done – no extravagant stage setup or lighting because they are flying in from Europe. Basically it’s 4 MCs and 3 DJs.  The middle DJ has show tracks running in ableton. The two DJs on the wings are mixing and scratching.  Not a lot of MIDI triggering or interaction between the DJs.  The one time I was impressed the DJ on the left did a medley where the guys rapped over some classic instrumentals (think Sugarhill Gang and Run DMC)

Afterwards I went out in Lauderdale met some cool people and did a yoga pose in a bar that ended up with me frontflipping into giant jenga and having to replace a girl’s beer.  Good times indeed.
