Blake Carrington talks Sneaker Pimps Tour; performs tonight in ATL [News]


Los Angeles, CA – After recently publishing a story about Toronto barbershop owner, Vince the Barber, I was eager to check his spot during a visit to LA. While approaching Capsule LA with Crooklin (Smash Brovaz), we happened to bump into Toronto’s Blake Carrington out front, in the midst of a photo shoot. I’m only now really appreciating the Canadian connection that runs deep through this city. I’ve connected with producer Beat Merchant and, of course, our HHCLA Editor Sina Tash – both Canadian. Even HipHopCanada’s own Jonathon “Bizz” Brown has been based here since the end of July. Anyways, I took the chance opportunity of bumping into Blake to ask him about his current tour.

“Yeah the tour I’ve been on right now, the Sneaker Pimps tour, has been going on since August 10th and goes till October 12th. You can get all the information about the tour at I’m going to be in Atlanta on Friday, August 31st with CyHi Da Prynce, it’s going to be crazy. We already did LA, we did Houston, we did Miami. Right now I’m in LA, then I’m in Atlanta, going to Chicago, Philadelphia, D.C., New York City. It’s gonna be a movie.”

More information and flyers after the jump.
