Whoa! I can't believe it, but it's happening. This time tomorrow, myself and K-Murdock will be taking the Forever Famicom experience to the Mecca, to the birthplace. To Japan. Word up.

So before we head out, I'm here tying up some loose ends. I'll be making a trip to the post office to mail out ALL physical purchases (including "The Memorandum" preorders) so get yours in here:

Check that out because a LOT of new items have been added, including our spiffy new Team Mega Japan hoodie! Buy now and a portion of proceeds will benefit Japan relief charities. Help someone and stay warm at the same time!

Next order of business, is before we leave, if you'd like to get a souvenir from K and myself, hit this link to donate to the tour fund, cause we all could use some more sushi.


I'll be filming like crazy, best believe. I'll be back to the states in a week, with a slew of stories to tell. If you have friends in Japan, let em know that we'll be out there, and this is what our schedule looks like so far.

SmCIty Bio

There have been few MC's with the skills to walk between both worlds, attaining success while simultaneously commanding the respect of the indie music aficionados. SmCity's mission is to market the message, package the struggle, and brand the revolution. The music mirrors his hometown of Washington DC, bringing the ghetto and politics face to face in a musical staring match for the ages. At age 26, Simeon "SmCity" Booker has lived an excitingly diverse life, from running a full service recording studio fresh out of high school to being one of the city's most respected entrepreneurs and concert promoters, in addition to performing in shows with the legendary Last Poets and sitting on panels with Dr. Benjamin Chavis.

SmCity is known for his "The Indie Life" campaign which has consisted of short films, events and of course the music. Since 2000, SmCity has been Featured in URB Magazine's Next 100, AllHipHop, hiphopdx, Okayplayer and has shared the stage with Drake & Young Jeezy. After realizing that there needed to be a platform to showcase the indie talent in the correct light, SmCity developed The Indie Life: Concert Series. His goal is to bring a nationally known indie artist to Washington, DC and pair some of the most decorated indie artist based in the DMV with that headliner as well as himself. As a part of the series, SmCity has performed with Big Krit, Cyhi The Prince, Freddie Gibbs, Freeway, Kendrick Lamar, Stalley, and a host of others. His debut album, "The Indie Life: Hate, Love & Money" featuring Skyzoo, Oddisee, Phil Ade, Uptown XO and more is set for release January 12th, 2012 hosted by
