Both EDIDon and Young Noble flew out on Wednesday, with their first stop being Moscow. Since arriving, the Outlaw veterans have visited the biggest Nike store in Europe, with Edi describing it as ‘sneaker head heaven’. They even had time to shoot some hoops with the locals and mingling with fans. It’s not the first time that the hip hop legends have proved how genuine and sincere they are. In December 2018, during their Motherland tour in South Africa, they took time out to visit the locals, talking to them and uplifting them.
