according to this nigga from the nobodysmiling.com forum:

yo man ROCK THE BELLZ was off the hook....
BESIDES the LAME ass backpacker/no-love of a crowd and the heat, the whole show was sick... BIG UPPZ TOO SUPERNATURAL... he made history last night, doin the WORLDS LONGEST FREESTYLE... OVER 9 f*ckIN HOURS BABY!!!... propz....

so everybody from immortal technique, talib kweli, and mos def to em classic niggas like DE LA SOUL ripped it up... big upz too all the other MC's that held sh*t down...

and then with the cronic in the air, REDMAN LITE sh*t up with his smoked out set... and that made way for the surprise guest, MISS LAUREN HILL... she got the house feelin jah' good!!!....

FINALLY THE WU' stepd out and brought the f*ckin house down... they thru their bests @ us for a good amount of time... ofcourse it bein the TRIBUTE to O.D.B, the clan did things extra special... now too the madness

STEVE-O, from MTV's JackAss, came out and wanted too do somethin for Ol' Dirty.... so the white boy strips, butt-ass naked, puts his crotch between his legs, and does a f*ckin backflip.... stupid f*ck huh!!! that fired up RAEKWON' the cHef and he got on the mic and said "i'll get arrested right here, but you better f*ckin' apologize to ODB's mom, and everyone else because that was some stupid sh*t.... HOMO..." and he pretty much almost got STEVE-O too sh*t in his pants.... fool was gonna get stomped on...

anyways... wild night....
and i still prolly left some sh*t out

50 bones for 1 GA ticket? suck my dick guerillaunion, fuckin hiphop capitalists

i knew that heat was gonna be horrendous, you know why? the corporates knew that the san bernadino sector is the cheapest area to rent, so they send everyone there.. instead of purchasing a set like LA staples center..


look at all the nerd rap guests
wutang minus ODB will never be the same, plus the Wu is lyrically dead and raekwon is the one keepin em float



i aint hating. i'm jus giving construtive criticism

lol yeah found something about that steve-o shit as well:


i just got home from the Rock the Bells festival IV....Wu-Tang was one of many acts to grace the stage at the show, and during their tribute to ODB, for some reason, STEVE-O from jackass comes out on stage and embarasses himself and discraces ODB (in front of his mother no less) by doing a "dirty stunt" in honor of ODB...claiming that he wanted to do it because he was recently locked in the same jail cell that ODB stayed in at one point in L.A. county jail, Steve-O proceeded to pull of his clothes (surrounded by all remaining members of the WU and in front of an ODB painting) and tuck his ISH behind his legs and do a backflip....afterwards the RZA made a comment about Steve-O belonging in a Zoo, then went on with the show...but a couple songs later, Raekwon brought Steve-O front and center and told him over the mic that if he didnt apologize for the "gay" and disgusting display he would knock him out on the spot....with a trembling voice Steve-O apologized to the Wu-Tang and ODB's mother, much to the approval of the crowd
pretty rediculous indeed....i was personally disgusted when i even saw Steve-O on stage, but im glad it was made right eventually...
either way don't be surprised if you hear something in the news the next couple of days about Steve-O being involved in some kind of freak accident...because i don't think the simple apology will be enough for the Wu

feel free to throw me props for the news or just the image of Steve-O getting jumped by the Wu
jackasses should stay where they belong....

hmm. logistically, if i were the staples center i would't rent such a nice venue to this type of event.

and if you are complaining about 50 dollars, i am sure staples will be double the price w/ all that liability. i think gorilla union must give alot to their security, because they NEVER stop anyone from blazing up a storm. at the tribe reunion, during the cypress hill set, i saw some fool raise up a glass bong in the crowd! wtf?!?! and there were venders there selling pieces at the venue behind glass cases. i am sure security pays for alot of that.

also, attendence wise, the show did not sell out like it did in 04 w/ odb. and in 04, the fans seriosuly FUCKED that place up. I saw cats get maced as well as some buff dudes tear down one of the gates to get in!

if you did not like the 'nerd guest' artists (i must agree, it's very backpacer, but so is wu these days) you could've beat the heat by coming later as i did.

regardless, seeing the wu in the LA area is a very rare event, especially since so many of the clan actually showed up (everyone minus odb). 50 dollars really isn't that bad.

i was kinda pissed w/ lauryn's guest appearance cause she came on after mos def and before the wu. her 3 song preformance w/ the live band cut wu's set short, which was only an hour compared to their 2 hr set in 04.

i paid for the wu not lauryn. if i'd paid for the fugees or something, then alright.

ur a fool, a fucking fool. It was such a dope ass show and I am more than pleased with the 100 bucks i paid for my VIP tickets, Vip people got to see Supernat whenever. While we got a free backpack, t-shirt, and poster, with 2 free drink tickets (only for Hennessy drinks), with a seperate lounge.

The Heat wasn't bad especially when ur sitting thru an all-star line up. With tons of suprise performances, from what I can even remember about each group had someone unexpected come out. De La Soul featured Phife Dawg, as they did some Tribe songs. Redman had Dj Kool, Talib and Mos had Chappelle chillen. This concert exceeded my expectations and was well worth the trip from Chi out to Cali for it.

On the Steve-O deal, that was ridiculous. I didn't even know what was goin on, he was real fucked up tho. I think a lot of the Wu was fucked up also. Meth even said that Steve-O was fucked up. Said something bout him being on Heroin. Rae was truly pissed and had right to be, disrespect to ODB's mother, she was shocked.

i'm also uploading that video of steve-o o yousendit.com....

it's 360mb and i don't have film editing software, or care to learn how to use it, so you will have to wait till it loads. i'll post the link when it's up.

i knew i had to pull out the camera for this one cause i was like "steve-o w/ the wu? wtf? are you serious" the video is just of them showing off the odb painting, "shimmy", meth introducing steve-o, steve-o doing his flip and them going into "brooklyn zoo". sound quality is pretty good, as there is no music, just talking.

i think honestly, in steve-o's defence (i am not really a jackass fan myself), but i think meth made him do it. he's the only one agging him on and even laughs as he's denying he asked him to do it.

Meth didn't say steve-o was fucked up. Rae was the one that said he was on heroin.

also, i've never gotten VIP at a rock the bells event, but it doesnt' really seem worth it. a tiny backpack and 2 drinks? for 50 dollars more? 2 drinks maybe worth 20...(was 7 for a beer, 9 for hefinwizen, 11 for a mai tai) but yeah. either way, it was a good show.

no shit?

yea....he prolly stayed in LA to continue workin on his 'projects'

kinda dissed though.....Sway & Tech brought the show up north & they asked for feedback so u know what they're gonna hear about is 1) NOT having the entire clan & 2) Cuttin the WUs time short cuz the other acts fuked up the schedule/timing

well when u look at all the things it was worth it, 100 dollar ticket which includes

Backpack-Prolly like 20-30 bucks, they didn't even sell it newhere i think
T-shirts- A similiar shirt was 30 Bucks
2 Drinks- They were a choice of 4 differnt kind of hennessy drinks which were ( dollars a pop.
Vip Lounge- It was cool, got to watch Supernatural break the work record, had some couches to relax on, open to full bar, and the bleachers to the side of the stage.
So if u were planning on getting ne of the things above it was def worth it, even tho i had to be in the crowd when Wu came.

Either way pure dopeness

I went on that shit, I was standing for 14 hours just so i can keep my spot in the front, me n my friend were dizzy as fuck when Mosn talib came on, then the roots did some shit, but when the Wu came on, the whole crowd woke up... the crowd was flowin more then the clan, meth was the only one flowin, the whole clan was kickin back n watchin Meth do his thing with the rest of tha crowd. cappa was there, and that shit wit stevo was some nasty shit, lol

rza never did the signing though =(

v.i.p. would be a good idea, but they were too far from the stage... i didnt have no v.i.p., but shiit, the backpack is trash, n the shirt is 30 dollars, and they dont even have tall sizes, so fuck that, posters were 5 bucks, so i got some, n for 20 dollars you can get 5 drinks.... so it aint worth it

v.i.p was not the way to go

meth, red, planet asia and some other were jumpin into the crowd and shit, throwin their mixtapes n shit, v.i.p. doesnt get to see that shit up close.

U complaining about $50??? Thatz not a bad ticket price for all of those performers. U figure Wu-tang clan alone could be a $50 tix. U gettin 8 emcess in 1 group alone, then Mos Def, Kweli, Immortal Tek, De la soul, Redman and Lauyrn Hill??? Aww com 'on man! That could easily be a $200 ticket for a show like that! Thatz massive! $50 iz a steal for that show! Stop being a chepsk8! Now the venue i can't commment on b/c i've never been there. I mean if its the same venue i seen on the dvd from '04 then i dunno? It looked like a half descent place? It had a rugged looked to it. I know it was probably hot as fuck with all those people in there. But at the same time who wantz to go see wu and sit down for the entire time like its a damn broadway show? U wanna wild out!

the one on the dvd was at the same location, except it was indoors inside a hangar/warehouse type building. i believe that the orange pavillion is an airfield of some sort.

i prefer the show indoors... cause it seems to be easier to see everything and it avoids the sunlight from the daytime, but the show i think gets bigger every year so they can't do it anymore. also i think that first year the fans really fucked up the place. also it was alot hotter, imagine 10,000 in an un-airconditioned building.

steve o is a gross dude. 50 bucks aint bad at all to see all that. and yo, supernatural freestyled for 9 hours? i dont believe that man. id have to see it to believe it. it would suck so bad if it went on for nine hours and hed be repeatin stuff. dude would have to piss or something.
