Now that I finally have a minute to sit down and personally address my fans, listeners, supporters, what have you... I will use this opportunity to recap the events of the last two months, share some behind the scenes stories, and unveil some plans for the near future. Most importantly, let me start by saying the new self titled album was released publicly August 3rd, and so far so good! You can purchase the album "Sixx Digit" right now on iTunes, Rhapsody, Amazon, and just about anywhere else on the internet. You can also order physical copies directly from www.shatterproofrecords.com with free shipping. Those in the Toledo, Ohio area can pick up a copy anywhere music is sold. The reception has been great, and I truly appreciate all of your support. I mean that.
We have officially launched the Sixx Digit Street Team and we need your help! Members will be given flyers, posters, stickers, etc. to plaster their area with and help spread the word about Sixx Digit. Jobs well done will be rewarded with fresh ass exclusive Sixx Digit stuff! If you are ready to join send your physical address to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send yours out asap!
Now that thats out of the way, let me tell you about performing at the 2012 Gathering of the Juggalos last week... this was my second consecutive year performing at this incredible music festival. For anyone that is trying to get into the business, or cares at all about unsigned/underground rap this is the place you want to be. Juggalo, or not there is soooo many artists here to meet and network with. Some are really bad... some are really good, but ALL of them are doin somethin and working. On top of that, there are people there who still dig music and want to hear fresh unearthed shit..... Now with that being said, this was my 5th Gathering. I attended the first few ones years ago, and even competed in open mic style things... Its sometimes easy for me to minimize things because I'm always moving and doing the next step, but these are the things I daydreamed about when I was a kid. I can remember imagining what ICP might think of MY raps if they ever heard them so it's kind of surreal to actually SEE Violent J listen to my music and say nice things about it. The Gathering is the same thing you know? 12 years ago I was a young kid in the crowd just dreamin... But, I digress...
We showed up Wednesday morning, right when they were opening the gates. Right away we get into a bunch of confusion at the ticket booth, but my wife quickly gets it resolved (as she often does.) Even better, we recognize a few friendly security guys whom we had met the previous year, and they lead us directly where we want to set up shop in a no-camping area next to the stage I'm scheduled to perform on.
I wasn't on until Sunday, the last day of the festival so I had plenty of time to take in the sights and sounds. I watched a lot of performances. Twisted Insane was very impressive. My homie Pony Boy was on point as always, as were my other Michigan homies Origix and D.C. Jelly Roll, the homie Lil Wyte, Haystack, Rittz, and Project Pat all played back to back and put on a hell of a show! Only problem is I was sippin and by the time Pat was on at 5am or so I was dozing off haha. Had to lay it down. I.C.P. put on a great show like they usually do, and their fireworks display was AMAZING.... it shitted on the downtown fireworks in my city, no lie. At least an hour of Kabooms, very cool.
We met a bunch of cool people, kicked it with a lot of familiar faces as well, seen some really crazy shit, some of which cannot be unseen. We passed out 250 copies of the new album, and whoop whooped til we lost our voices. All in all, it was a good time and a success as far as musical journeys go. We hope to do it again, as many times as they will have us back! Thanks Psychopathic!
Until the next time I have some good news to share!
