Ghostface: How I Nearly Killed Method Man In A Tour Prank Gone Wrong
via HHC Digital
Pretty Toney might not have impressed the PopBitch massive with his London gig, but there’s still time to catch him and his Theodore roadies in the UK when they bring the ruckus to theirremaining UK gigs.
In the meantime, here’s a sneak peak preview from HHC Digital’s interview with Ghost Deini that’ll be appearing in full in the next issue…
“A tour’s about having fun, doing what you gotta do, get to your destination safe, get back safe and just rocking the people, man. We had a lotta fun, a lotta things you can’t even talk about… But I remember one time we was in the hotel when we was younger – me, Method Man and all of us, we’d play tricks on each other. We took the fire extinguisher while he was asleep, went to his room, put it under his door, and just let the whole fire extinguisher out in his room!
“So he started choking though, but that wasn’t good. We was young, we could’a kilt him! He was breathing all of that in, and he came out the door, coughing, and his whole head was white! That was one of the moments from back then that you remember that was kinda like crazy, but you learn from that.”
Kanye Plans to Tour this Fall
Kanye West credits his dad for his risk-taking attitude.
“I like the challenge of having to win people over with a new concept,” West said in a recent interview. “My father (Ray West) was a salesman. And I saw him have to talk people into things and expose people to new ideas all the time. And I like that. What’s the point if you’re not presenting something new to people, that people might not be ready for, and exposing people to new ideas?”
Expect new theatrical ideas when West takes to the road this summer. West will launch a European tour featuring his latest album, “808s & Heartbreak,” in July and expects the tour to hit the United States by fall.
Speaking on the set of a recent video shoot for his friend 88-Keys’ “Stay Up (Viagra),” West said he was excited to find new ways to blend his songs together.
“Being on stage, it’s the glory,” West said.
The producer-turned-rapper-turned-singer has consulted with many of the same people who helped inspire staging for his last set of shows, the “Glow in the Dark Tour.” They include filmmaker Spike Jonze, who directed West’s upcoming “See You In My Nightmares” video, and The Jim Henson Company.
