2006 Super Street NOPI Tour to NOPI

Interestingly enough, Super Street's tour to NOPI had a pit stop in Lexington, KY overnight on September 13th. I flew back to Lexington for an autograph session as part of the event. As I went to high school in Lexington, I saw plenty of familiar faces, and as always, it was great to be back, even for just a few days.

The event was organized by Injected Performance of Lexington, KY, and the turnout was great!
Mayor Teresa Isaac presented me with the Key to the City! It is a great honor for me as the city will always be dear to me for the time I spent there, although a small part of my journey through life. Thank you mayor!
