So me and my friends went to the Strange Days tour put on by Tech N9ne and Strange Music. It was in celebration for there 10 years of success. Not only was it one of the best Tech Shows (including 6 previous) but it had some of the best performers out of any of the shows!
When we first arrived to the the concert, we didn't have much money, but we had brew, ladies, and the boo-ya! We got there about 6 hours before the show was even going to start, and my homies were like, "what we gonna do? what you wanna do?" Now when all this was going down I knew exactly what was going to happen, I told em we ain't got nothin' much but why don't we go to the back find Brotha Lynch, and Tech give em some of our brews, and put some of that funky smell into the air! My friends looked at me like I was crazy! They were looking at me like, "what you gonna do, your not going to get back there, you ain't anybody!" They didn't say shit they just went with it!
The first thing we do is walk all the way back to the Venue and keeping a look out for BIG BROTHER! So we walked down and find out that it's safe, and we see the Tour buses with a couple a homies out front. It wasn't until we got closer and realized it was Brotha Lynch and someone else setting up a cheap ass Wal-Mart BBQ. When they finally got closer, Brotha Lynch looked at us one time, and went back to work on his grill. Well then the other fool popped up and was all Murdered out in black, he was even rockin' the black Jason mask! He looks up and asks,"What's up, whatcha all need?" I told him I didn't need nothing, we just wanted to come kicks it, drink some brews, and support the Strange Family. Then he smiles and tells me, "I'm C-Lim, I'm guessing you already know my big cousin Brotha Lynch? You want to kix it you say? Well were trying to get this BBQ going and we ain't got Barbecue sauce, you hook us up with some sauce and then we can talk." So I told him no problem, there is a store right down the street. When we were walking away, Brotha Lynch pops up and yells, "We need some meat!" C-lim shakes his head and tells us not to forget some meat.
So we get back carrying a bunch of meat and BBQ sauce and I'm not even worried about security or anything. When we get back, there ain't nobody around, the Barbecue is set up and everything is looking good but nobody is around. So then a security guard walks over and asks us if we have passes and telling us were not suppose to be there with out our passes. I was holding up food, and telling him this was our pass, C-Lim and Brotha Lynch wanted this stuff. He had no clue was I was talking about.
So then I see Tech walking to the other bus and yell for him,"Tech, Tech! Tell C-Lim and Brotha Lynch we got there food!" He chuckled and told us to hold on... We wait and 5 seconds later a whole Platoon of people reppin' Strange came out the bus. C-Lim walks up to the security guard, and pushes me out of the way a little bit. He put his arm on the old guards shoulder and told him that we were cool, C-Lim told him that we were family today, and we didn't need a pass. After the guard walked away C-Lim looked at me and told me, "Act like you belong, you family today, now lets get the BBQ rollin'!" We kixed it with everyone at Strange, talked about there albums, Cog was there asking about my favorite tracks, and C-Lim blew me away telling me he was the one rapping on some of my favorite "Dinner and a Movie" tracks.
Not only was it the best Strange Music concert I have been too, it was one of the realest! C-Lim didn't even know me, or my homies, but he still made it a point to treat us equal, he treated fans like us, like we were the one about to put on a show. It was a great time and -Lim not only treated us like any conglomerate of Strange, but later that night when he hit the stage with Brotha Lynch, the venue went fuckin' nuts!!! It blew up like they have been waiting for C-Lim and Brotha Lynch their whole life!
Then months after the concert and many more shows. I get hit up on facebook from C-Lim and he commented on my picture. Yeah we got some fan pics and C-Lim not only remembered us, but also thanked us for the good times he had.
A couple days later I seen a post, of an event saying lets sign C-Lim to Strange Music! Not only did I think this was a good idea, but maybe one of the best things that could happen to Strange going into the next decade! I mean he was there treating us fans like family and better then some real homies would, and I thought to myself why wouldn't Strange want that guy on there roster to bang out another great decade.
I'm nobody, just a fan of good music, and bigger fan of a good time. Now thanks to people like C-Lim who found it in him to let a couple Wyoming boys kix it and talk about everything and anything that is happening with Strange and our favorite artists. All I want to know is, why wouldn't you guys want someone like that on the roster? C-Lim brings more than just good bangin' music, his presence and ways made me believe and want to be down with Strange for another great decade! It shouldn't be a question of why C-Lim needs Strange, it should be about why Strange needs C-Lim!!
Thanks, Stay Strange!
