Is this your first time in the UK?

I wanna visit the warehouse where my good buddy Colin lives. Happy with anything else we stumble upon.
What are you most looking forward to on this trip?
Being a part of the passionate vibe that takes place in the LDN scene. Should be a hoot skating the streets with all the locals. I also can’t wait to plow many English banger breakfasts.

I’m a sucker for tourist merch.

Lil Jon – shots

A local bag of coffee. Reminds me of home in the best way and then the crew has a backup sac for emergencies.
What are five essentials you are bringing on this trip?
• Swim trunks.
• protein powder
• Water bottle
What are some lessons you’ve learned on tour?
Take less than you think you should. I’ve lost a lot of nice things on tour from over packing, so I’m trying to avoid that!

The Beatles, the Rolling Stones or Queen?
Sherlock Holmes or James Bond?
Huge bond fan. Pierce Brosnan kills me and Daniel Craig is straight up inspo.

Cup o’ tea, pint of beer, or shot of scotch?
Bronson or Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels?

Two foods I don’t entertain
