This past Saturday was the 4th Annual Sneaker Pimps Tour in Atlanta. I remember vividly the very first one to take place in ATL in the small space of More Dusty Than Digital (R.I.P.) in Little Five Points. There was just some custom kicks, a Dj, a small bar, and about 100 people.
After that the event moved to MJQ for year 2, The Loft for year 3 (which feat a performance by Kool Keith), and now year 4.
The venue was the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, which I’ve past several times but have never been inside of. After only about 2 minutes of being inside I am informed by Dj Creashun (CE Crew) that somebody there looks just like me – and he just ran up on that person thinking it was me. At first I laughed it off, but as the night progressed more and more people approached me saying this person resembled me a lot. Finally after the 10th person told me this, I decided to find this guy – D Woods snapped the pic, and I wanted to post it to see what you think? Does every skinny light skin brotha with a fitted on look like me?
There was a stage outside, a half pipe (skateboard ramp) inside, and what seemed like 500 custom kicks. Everywhere you turned seemed to be a new experience.
One of the highlights for the night was the amount of ladies who came threw with fresh kicks. Around midnight the Clipse took the stage and ran threw their hits along with random mixtape tracks. We also caught Malice (Clipse) on the Ramp getting it in.

Dj’s Lord and Tiger Lilly head down the sounds for most of the evening.
Shout out to D Woods, Freddie, Nita, Dave Jeff (Phli), Steve (New Era), Peter, Brady, Mike, Young Joc, Kenny Burns, Jerrell, Greg Street, Cope 2 (KD / NYC KING) and everybody else that I bumped into that evening. Everyone had a Wonderful time and can wait for Sneaker Pimps 5!
