Mindspray in Europe (part 1)
(paris subway map)
Okay, so here we go. If you are uninformed, my name is Dyalekt. Yeah it's a funny name. So's your mom. Wait. That's not funny. So I balance having a funny name by being dreadfully droll.
My rappity rap crew MINDSpray, is currently on tour. BrokenDomer, with DJ Halo, are
running around the west coast of the US. Nifty. DJ MilkMoney, C.O.N.C.E.P.T., and your humble narrator are in Europe. That's right, with euros and everything. We came outta Air India in Paris (Free Scotch on the plane!) and MINDSpray homie Native took us in for a lil eastern hospitality. We spent our tour warmup rocking a capella above a French restaurant, then in the street, and later with a Brazilian band in Montmartre.
So I arrive at Charles De Gaulle Airport. Tons of French people, all skinny jean and blazered out. To my left is a monument to Rugby... I think. Shame that France lost the big rugby game the day we left for Manchester.
This is what the subway entrance looks like in Paris. Doper than a green or red dot. So far this has been one of my favorite parts of the city... mostly because C.O.N.C.E.P.T. , Native, and I spent most of our time freestyling on them.
looky (and listeny)
Native is a gracious host (as well as Katherine, whatup lady!), as well as a visual masterpiecer.
You should cop his book Sessions
for artisticalimogriphacal reasons, he cannot be shown on video or in pictures... but you can see his work:
