We’ve had some good hip hop over the years, but it’s definitely the genre that has proven the most difficult for us to book.  What we’ve come to find out is that rappers like to get paid, and we’re not in the practice of paying artists.  So when a guy who has worked with the likes of Kanye West, Nas, Snoop, E-40, and many other great artists says that he wants to bring his whole band and perform for us, well that’s extremely heady.  Add to it the fact that I got to burn one with him and Nickelodeon star Drake Bell, and it made for one hell of a memory.
