In “Living Gonzo” we travel to California to meet Lil B, a nu hip hop artist whose original style has taken the world by storm with an incredible DIY internet campaign. GONZOWORLD hooks up with Lil B in his hometown San Francisco for the weekend. We cruise the Bay Area in B’s pimped out Merc, get the blood pumping with some of his work outs, learn his signature cookin’ dance, understand what swag is all about, and get down and dirty, picking up some of San Francisco’s hottest girls! Lil B is touring this summer, with gigs at the cult Parisian Social and at Cassiopeia in Berlin.
The success of Tempa T’s GONZO work out led to the new “Gonzo Fit” series. Delivering a hilarious mix of
sports and comedy, our lippy host Jamie Howard gets thrown in at the deep end to train with some of the
toughest professionals in the world. Jamie mixes it with UFC athlete Urijah Faber, action movie hero Michael Jai White, heavyweight boxer David Haye and members of the Elite Forces, ensuring Jamie’s journey from zero to hero is training at its realest and toughest.
