The next blog will feature my experiences being on the road with The God MC Rakim, on the Seventh Seal Tour. I will be discussing deep conversations that we’ve had, and what’s it’s like to be on the road.

Yo fest, you and Ra did the damned thing in Raleigh, NC at The Lincoln Theater Friday night. It was one of the best shows i’ve ever seen (I’m a lil’ biased with that comment cause you and Ra are two of my favorite MCs) Thanks for the show man and I can’t wait for your new music to drop.

ARE YOU AFRAID OF YOUR READERS READING MY BLOG? IS THAT WHY YOU CONTINUE TO ERASE WHAT I POST? SO YOU ARE THE WOLF NOW. SPREADING YOUR LIES AND YOUR MISCONCEPTIONS? ARE YOU EVEN REALLY A MAN OR JUST A COWARD? I ALREAY KNOW THE THE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION. WHY DONT YOU ALLOW YOUR READERS TO DECIDE? YOU ONLY WANT TO POST YOU SELF CREATED FALSE TRUTHS. I KNOW YOUR TYPE… YOU’VE READ A COUPLE OF BOOKS AND THINK THAT YOU ARE THE SELF FULLFILLED PROPHET WHO IS SPREADING THE TRUTH. SURROUNDING YOUR SELF WITH PEOPLE WHOVE HEARD YOU USE A VIEW WAORD THAT ARENT IN THEIR VOCABULARY, SO IN RETURN THEY THINK THAT YOU ARE AN INTELLECT. THE TRUTH…..? WHAT TRUTH…? ALL YOU ARE GOING TO DO IS ERASE IT AGIN SO YOUR READERS WILL NOT KNOW THE TRUTH…..

Hey Fest what up! Yo this is J-Saint, I was to serve as your host for the November 14 show in Harrisburg, PA. Just so the readers have a little background of the evening, I’m going to inform them…Rakim and Rhymefest didn’t make that show due to the tour bus breaking down in Va. Man, I was bummed…I’m an artist too and I was set to open for the duo that night as well. And as you would expect from a team of guys who have been on the road for weeks and are exhausted and most likely frustrated due to the bus issues, we weren’t informed until a couple of hours prior to the club doors opening that the show wouldn’t happen that night. But shit happens and the evening turned out to be great, I ordered the Pacquiao vs Cotto fight, had a party at my crib (about 40-50 people came) and we rocked out till about 6am. Now my question for you (Rhymefest) is this bro…are you coming back with Rakim on December 19th for the rescheduled show? Will you need a place to stay if you are? Funny, you compare Rakim to “John Lennon” and I agree with you. I have a framed poster of John Lennon in my bedroom that came inside the original Imagine album…that dude, was in my opinion the most phenominal song writer in history as Rakim in my opinion is the best MC in history. I also see your views regarding honor and hear the “real” talk in your songs and honestly that’s what I love about you man. So please, can you or Donnie hit me up and let me know if you’ll be here on the 19th and if so, I’d still like to serve as your host homie, I really spent a lot of time preparing my home for you the first time around and would hope I didn’t do that all in vane. Thanks!
