Tour Rider: Brooklyn Rap Pranksters Ninjasonik Tell Us Their Backstage Demands

+

As the rap collective Ninjasonik, MCs Jah and Telli Gramz made a minor splash on the internet in 2010, when they released their LP, Art School Girls. The record was exactly what its title implies: a blunt and wacky shout out to their hard-partying and forever young Brooklyn universe. Today marks the release of their No Swords Or Masks EP (available on iTunes), and to celebrate, we schlepped on over to the Lower East Side apartment of Telli’s girlfriend, to shoot the dudes doing what they do best: hanging out. Not only that, but in anticipation of some eventual shows in support of the record, they gave us their dream tour rider, a list of items they simply won’t perform without.
