What up fam?
Alots been going on since my last blog. Shit been movin' so fast I didn't have the time to write a decent blog until now. I did Jimmy Kimmel. Flew on a red-eye to New York for the Tribeca Film Festival. Then back to L.A. to hit Power 106 with Big Boy. Later that night went back in the studio with Dre. Hit a Lakers Playoff game. Finished a few edits on my video and now I'm in Osaka, Japan.
Jimmy Kimmel is always good to do. I think me and Jimmy have cool chemisty. But this time it was a little dry, cool but now our best sit down. They wanted me to stay and cook on stage with Paula Dean. When I heard they were cooking fried chicken...I was outta there. Ya right! Me and Kim hit the airport and a red-eye to New York City.
I hate red-eye flights. You think you'll get some sleep but never do. We had to hit the ground running too. Drop your bags, wash up and it's time to do press. All day interviews about my new documentary "Straight Outta L.A." for ESPN's 30 for 30 series. It's about the time when the Oakland Raiders moved to Los Angeles from 1982 to 1994. That team moving to L.A. changed the look of Hip-Hop which changed the look of the world. We premiered the film at Tribeca to good reviews. Me. Myself, I don't care about reviews or previews. Opinions are like assholes, everybody got one...and they all stink! Back to L.A.
I did Big Boy's morning show on the 26th. The same day I dropped my single, "I Rep That West" (avaliable on icecube.com). I remember when Big Boy was the new DJ at Power 106 under the Baker Boys. Now he's nationwide. That's good to see. Big Boy is very funny to me. We chopped it up and talked about everything I got going on and it was all love. But my mind was on the studio session with Dre later on that night.
This time it was just me and Dre. You can see the pic on the home page. After we picked one of Dre's heat rocks, we started writing the song. We got alot more done this time then the last time and the song is bangin'. When I get back from Japan were going to get back in to finish the magic.
I just finished the edits on my new video. It will premiere on Yahoo this Monday. 24 hours after that, you can see it right here on icecube.com It's one of my tightest videos.
Now I'm in Osaka, Japan. We flew about 13 hours in total to get here with a layover in Tokyo. Japan is always dope. I like how good they treat each other here. I couldn't wait to get off the plane to hear what happen with my Lakers matchup vs the Thunder in game 6. With a tip in by Pau Gasol the Lakers win the series 4 - 2. With that, the world seems normal again.
Now it's 10:05 am Sunday morning in Japan. We're on our way to see the Sugar Shane vs. Floyd Mayweather fight. I got Shane, a California boy. I use ta really love Floyd but he ducked the Pac-Man. There's no running in boxing...oh yes it is. Tonight we work rock Osaka.
It won't take a month for my next blog. I promise.
If I mispelled anything, remember I'm a victim of the L.A. Unified School District.
