Last night was definitely on some movie shit! Headed to the Key Club in Hollywood to catch the homies, Kev Nish, Proh, J-Spliff, and Virman aka Far East Movement’s welcome home show in LA, after their 2 month tour with Mike Posner. When we walked up, the line was literally wrapped around the building and down the block for a venue with a 200+ capacity! Luckily we didn’t have to wait in the treacherous line and pretty much got to just walk right in. I felt bad for the 700+ people that had to wait in the line though and had to get told by the door man that nobody else was going to be able to get in.
The place was absolutely bananas when we got inside! Wall to wall packed! They were just about finishing “Like A G6″ when we got in and they went into “Go Ape” which is a crazy party joint featuring Lil Jon, and they ended with their new banging radio single “Rocketeer”.

Heres a quick Twitvid of “Rocketeer” performance
After the show we headed downstairs to the lounge to meet up with the guys, they were doing a meet and greet with some radio winners. I even ran into the big homie Ben Baller walking around amongst the crowd after the show. Always good running into that guy, we were going back and forth on twitter earlier in the day talking about my hair, he asked if my Mohawk was still “taller than Pau Gasol” LOL and I had to break the bad news that I had parted ways with it
After talking with the guys, they invited us to go party with them at Drais at the W. I knew shit was gonna get real crazy over there since the LMFAO Party Rock fam throws their Party Rock Wednesdays party there.
We pulled up to the W and walked into Drais, the guys were immediately bombarded with a TMZ camera man asking them stupid questions like “So what kind of things do your fans throw on stage for you guys?” WTF?!
When we walked into Drais, I felt like I just crash landed on a whole another planet! I looked over at Virman and said “Man, I feel like im on aother planet right now!” and he goes “You are!” Lol, classic line of the night! I knew it was gonna be bananas over here but I didn’t expect it to be on this level! Everbody was rockin out, decked in Party Rock gear, a live percussionist was gettin it in on stage, and everybody who was anybody was standing on top of the furniture waving their bottles in the air. We walked over to the table where birthday boy Jon from the Strereotypes was wildin out with the rest of the Stereotypes fam. Right next to their table was Ian Fletcher (LMFAO’s road manager), said wassup to him and the homie Q (LMFAO’s hypeman) was goin bonkers with his referee whistle! Lol! Then Red foo grabs the mic and yells “FAR EAST MOVEMENT IS IN THE BUILDING!!!” and the whole place shook like a 7.8 earthquake! Literally the floor was shaking, I thought this bitch was gonna give out below us!
Red Foo comes over and introduces the guys and begins chanting “EVERYBODY!! SHOTS SHOTS SH SH SHOTS SHOTS!!”
Kev says Happy Birthday to Jon Street of The Stereotypes and introduces “Like A G6″
I felt like I was in a movie at Drais last night, just wildin out and partying with the homies of Far East Movement and The Stereotypes! Its been a long time coming for those guys and they are finally on the top of the world! Still humble dudes too, like the very first time I met them at their International Secret Agents concert back in 08. Congrats to Kev, Proh, J-Spliff, and Virman as well as Ray, Jon, and Jeremy from The Stereotypes!
