As for Canada there were supposed 2 be 15 shows last year for the Fire & Ice Tour...Paul Wall & every1 @ Strange was on board, and I guess the promoters pulled out @ tha last minute. I talked to Kaliko & Travis (aka Mr.O' Guin aka Tha Prez) @ the Missoula show in Montana when the Fire & Ice Tour kicked off in the Marchish area of last year and that is when they told me they had these '15 dates' 4 Canada. Then when I met N9NE in Bozeman, MT for the Strange Noize Tour in August he said that the promoters really didn't give STRANGE a proper explanation as to why the shows were scrapped. See, I've worked @ HMV for the last 4 years and in my small city of Medicine Hat in Alberta it is a VICTORY 4 ME when I sell STRANGE MUSIC...cause honestly out of 10-20 'rap kids' (rap listeners between ages of 14-30) I am lucky if I can sell 1 STRANGE CD!! It is all G-Unit, Lil Wayne, etc. So last year I finally stopped wondering on my own and made contact to Strange Music via e-mail and had a few conversations with Korey Lloyd about what can be done 2 bring Tech & STRANGE 2 Canada and he did say that they are trying to create a stronger presence up here...they are wanting more 'street teams' to get the word out up here. So things like flyers, stickers, etc. they have that can promote them in ways that radio & tv wouldn't give them!! Cause we all know that MuchMusic is not ready to have Mr. Yates!! haha But WE must all VOICE our DESIRE to have STRANGE cross the border somehow, someway and allow them to get rid of all the bullshit that Canada gets from America's mainstream 'rap game.' Every single province has more than enough venues for Tech & STRANGE to DESTROY & SPREAD F.T.I. throughout our land, so lets not stop til it happens!!
Peace & 1LUV from:
the 1 & only Smitty G!!
(& unfortunately we all must accept the fact that we live in a post 9/11 era, where crossing borders is a BIANCA & a BEATRICE all at the same time!!)
i saw in an interview saying tech saying hes going to be in canada but that was like a year and half ago. its really lame and tech shouldn't do that to us canadians. and why doesn't strange tell us whats up. how hard is it to say hey we can't come untill we get our crime records aloud. or somthing like that.
So how about it strange. tell us canadian fans whats up!
Today the music world lost one of the greatest to ever touch a keyboard. Ray Manzarek, one of the two founding members of The Doors, passed away at the age of 74. It was in July of 1965 that a random encounter between the prodigious keyboardist and Jim Morrison would eventually turn into one [...]

When it comes to emcees other than Tech N9ne that are quick-spitting, hyper-intricate, and actually have something to say, it’s pretty much impossible to leave R.A. The Rugged Man’s name out of that short list, so it comes as no surprise that the hip hop Gods eventually brought the two together. On “Holla Loo Yuh” [...]
