This past Saturday night the Yeezus Tour made a stop in Houston, my hometown. The vibes were great, probably the best crowd on the tour to date. They made so much noise, it was deafening. Such a good feeling to come home and have such a great reception, especially when Kanye shouted out the band. (Below is a video of the shout-out and response.) The band consists of myself on keys, guitar, and bass; Mano of Treated Crew on 1′s and 2′s; and Tony Williams on backing vocals. We are the tightest band out there—just ask us.

Throwback to the bus story, we sometimes argue and disagree on things, especially on the long-ass bus rides, but we’re like family and always work out our differences for the greater good. Look out for a release from Tony soon, as well as Mano’s Treated Crew album collab with Stussy in 2014. Also below is a shot of me in action onstage. Seven more shows to go on this run; keep a lookout for more dates worldwide, to be announced.
