...we went right to the Real Jerk. A Jamaican restaraunt down on Queen Street in Toronto. Wooo!!! Chicken Roti! Ackee & Salt Fish!!! Rice & Peas! YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND!!! We always get a little bit juiced about food on tour because we are reduced to eating every form of fast food, or Denny's style blahhh blahhh. Whatever's open after the show. So everyone is on beam when we get to eat some real food. This is the Gutterfly experience so we had to dip over to Yonge Street and cop some wears. U know I'm always swoopin' them "Top Secret Ones". What ya'll know about the Navy Patton Leather with the Burgandy Swoosh??? Haha! Milky!!! Quit playin! My man Jumbo steady on them vintage spots and got dirty on some diggin. On with the new... I finally got the skin I was wanting for my Ipod. I don't move without it. I got the 3G 40G. So it's hard to find joints to fit mine. Time to upgrade. Lol! Oh yeah, of course I had to get that new Slum Village album. For those of u who don't know, I'm an SV fan. Yeah, I wanna see the original line-up do it again but, I can't front on Elzhi. That cat is a beast! You know T3 still embodies that old Slum vibe. So, I'm still ridin' wit ya'll. Baatin if u out there get at us dawg! Word. We rocked at a spot called the Reverb. We've played ther several times. But last night was real dope. One Love to all the Kings and Queens that came and blessed the spot. Good to see ya'll out. We had a good time. So many Lifesavas supporters in T Dot. We wasn't knowin! So many of ya'll came and showed love. That was good to see. I'm documenting it here and now so that everyone can see I wasn't fakin'. "Gutterfly" is almost done! Lookout out for the new album coming in 2006. Bar any mis-haps, we're lookin at this spring. Some of what you will here on the album was recorded right there in Toronto in our Hotel Room on Lakeshore Drive. That's my word. We pullin double duty out here. It's a beautiful thing. Stay tuned.

fight club

...Cleveland was actually dope this time. I have to admit we've had some sketchy outings in Cleveland. But this time, Cleveland was on point. As soon as we pull up to the club, there's about 4 security guards draggin these two local mc's out of the club. Haha! I know it's cruel to laugh, but u kinda had to be there. 2 kids trying there best to get at each others throats. Yelling and screamin' while being strong armed by security. But yet neither one of them really wanted to be let go... Feel me? It's freezing outside, and at one point, one kid takes his shirt off as if that would spur some sort of super human strength. Only to wind up getting wrestled back to the ground by security. Get this, the security's solution to the problem was "Okay, we're gonna count to 3, and when we get to 3, u run that way and u run the opposite way. Okay? 1, 2, 3..." Uhhh NO! Of course these guys go right back at each other. Pure Comedy! Nobody was hurt or really even through a punch. What really made it comical was to get inside the club and find out that it all started because one of the local MC's was in the crowd getting his heckle on, while the other was on stage trying to perform. It got personal and thus the wrestling match began. I can't give any specifics, but picture Marky Mark Walberg in a sling shot circa 1991 trying to fight Butter Bean the ultimate fight charachter in the middle of a suburb in Cleveland, OH. Strange!!! And it don't stop!

...we chilled so hard in Chicago, for so long, we were all runnin' late for sound check. I'm known as the "Navigator" when we're on the road beacause I'm "Never Lost". But Indianapolis is tricky. Needless to say, a few u-turns and round-abouts aside, WE MADE IT ON TIME! That may not seem like a huge accomplishment, but believe me, when u have 4 men, all trying to squeez as much as they can into a 2-3 hour time span. In a city like Chicago, it's hard to convince to pack it in, so we can get to sound check. To put it short, we showed up, we rocked, and bounced. Only to wind u in more Lifesavas adventures... Stay tuned. Big Up Indianapolis. Thanks for rockin wit us!

windy city

...last night we rolled into the Windy City. It's tough to go there because u know u ain't gonna wanna leave! It was a packed house at the Abbey Pub. Can't front when we first walked in it look like somethin out of a House Of Pain video. No dis, we just "hushed the crowd" when we came in. It didn't take long to see, we had obviously took a wrong turn into the dining room area. We would later come back to this part of the club and have a pretty cool meal. But at first glance.... Whoa. The show was dope though. It was crackin. But the Twilight Zone episodes don't stop. Why was MC Brainz at our show? Haha! Word. Some of the older heads may remember that cat. Early 90's cat who was made famous during that whole Michael Bivins/Biv 10/East Coast Family movement. Wich basically gave birth to the r&b group Boyz II Men. Well anyway, he got down wit them. He had a song called "Oochie Coochie" that made some noise. "Oochie Coochie" at an underground Hip Hop show??? Ill, right? Enough of that. Chicago is dope! I love the city. The vibe. The energy. It's one of my favorite places to perform. Why do we only get to be there for a day? Gotta come out and spend at least a week. Go shoppin. Get some good food. Feel Me? My man Sapien took us to the hood today. I always go to the hood if there's a second. Didn't get to get a haircut. But we did get to go check Cabrini Green Housing Projects. It's crazy to see the gentrification spreadin' through so many hoods.. Cop boxes on every block. Don't let me get started. Aight ya'll. I gotta jet. Get at ya'll tomorrow. Be well, VURSATYL
