What up! I just got back from the whirlwind of a signing tour, I Had a great time meeting everyone who came out, in all the cities. I hope you had as much fun as I did. The Tour was a big success and the dunny is sold out everywhere! Big shots out to All the Kidrobot staff in each city, and all the collectors who came out to score the Piece.
New York: Props to all the folks that came out in the semi cold NY weather. hahahha IT wasn't to bad out there. Shoutz out to My Homie Kano for coming through OG style, Dave cortez and the homies from INU Art, and The Big guy Paul Budnitz for making it out to say hello. Also Flygirl/store Manager Jenny , and her crew did a dope job out there.
Miami: You guys held it down , it was dope meeting everyone out there. I have to say Miami may have been the most hardcore, since I was so late thanks to that Piece of crap "American Airlines" that could not put a working plane on the ground for us. I swear to god they made us deplane and reboard 3 times. So I didnt make it to the Signing until 8:40pm way after the original time scheduled, but most the people stuck around, and for that I was very impressed. Big ups Miami! And the crew there kicked Ass, Big Ben was in the house, very cool guy, Mrs. PHI you go girl, it was real cool meeting you , and chillin at that well researched Thai spot, gonna have to do that again! Don't be a stalker now... lol
Los Angeles: LA always represents shouts to all the new homies and collectors out there, I always love comin down to LA. Big ups to GINO at dvwarehouse.com thanks for everything brotha, and for dropping me off in style, I have to say that may have been the pimpest entrance so far. Shoutz out to my man Jack Muramatsu from Vinylpulse.com showed up and we grubbed down afterwards at a dope Japanese spot with my primo Andre. Good times fo sho! Big ups To my man Ace for comin through and hookin me up! You da man son, lil Cooper that gave me an impromptu interview on the spot, that was fun, keep doin your thing lil dude!

Nothing new to me. Which also makes me want to thank the Oakland Airport, where I don't get discriminated on, Big Ups Oaktown!
San Francisco : What can I say it was good to be back in the BAY, and the hometown people came through for sure.
