London to Paris • Dallas Premiere

Snagged this
from Decade Clothing:

"The homie Daniel brings it again! This dude has his finger on the pulse of all the ill bike flicks. Over the past year he has brought you the following films; Macaframa, Council Of Doom, Fixed City, Revival and now London To Paris. It all goes down next Thursday, 7PM at Transit Bikes. There will be a keg & BBQ in the spot. If you are a beer snob and want to bring that special micro brew concoction, it’s BYOB. When the video is over and the keg is tapped, roll over to The Cavern for Top Notch. We will be in the building ’til 2am."

Apparently the final version of this will feature 10 emcees; but Badu’s keeping that list top secret. For now we know Lil Wayne is apart of it, as (what seems like) a live rip hit the internets, via Tim’s neighbor.

I got a chance to meet Shafiq @ the Palladium in Los Angeles during the Ecstatic Tour with Mos Def and Erykah Badu ft The Cannabinoids & Jay Electronica. I was able to see the making of this Video. Most of the scene was shot backstage in the dressing room hallway after the show.
