THURSDAY: I DO MUSIC @ APACHE CAFE
Now for those of you who know Me & My Story You know that at this point even mentioning Apache much less going there for anything is a trip in and of itself... That being said, My good Brother Oh Zee Banga asked a simple request of Me and I couldn't refuse Him because he is one of those people in ATL that takes care of Me when I need it. He asked Me to come out to I DO MUSIC and Sit on a Panel Discussion for the I DO MUSIC WEEKEND!! The discussion was about Digital Marketing & Promotions for the Digital Age urban Music Artist... On the Panel was Myself, Tai Saint-Louis of AllHipHop.com, GYANT of SOHH.com, B RICH (Manager for B.O.B.), Digital Marketing Guru Chuck Woo of EARWAX RECORDS & ChuckWoo.com & Big Yu National Account Director DIGIWAXX.com This was a well produced event filled with People that were looking to get some insight on perfecting their craft... That being said this event has OUTGROWN it's Present Venue... NO HATE... JUST TRUTH!!!
FRIDAY: The FRIDAY NIGHT FIXX @ MJQ
This is one of My Residencies here in ATL... the MJQ Concourse is the EPICENTER of THE COUNTERCULTURE here in ATLANTA!!! We were celebrating DJ LORD of PUBLIC ENEMY'S Birthday!! the Crowd of about 425 had a great time... MJQ has been doing some upgrades to their Sound System and I know that by the time that they finish that it'll be the TRUTH in ATLANTA. I had a great time myself and STRONGLY ENCOURAGE anyone that is looking for something different in their ATLANTA HIP HOP CLUB EXPERIENCE to come here at least once... You'll be glad you did!!!
SATURDAY: THE FUNK LORDZ ANNIVERSARY PARTY & B-BOY BATTLE, The TWELVE HOTEL & D'JANGO with the 1128 PROJECT!!!
now this is one of the Reasons why I feel I'm as good as I am not to sound to KANYE but I AM THE TRUTH WITH A MICROPHONE and I WAS BUILT FOR THIS & here's Why!!!
THE FUNK LORDZ ANNIVERSARY B-BOY JAM(SKILL4SOLE 3)
I was asked by b-Boy Quic of the ATL FUNKLORDZ/ZULU NATION to host a B-Boy competition @ The RELAPSE THEATER and can I tell you that this is one Element of Hip Hop that I wish I would've held on to a little longer... I mean these B-Boys & B-Girls got some MF'N HEAT with them!! The jam was great and literally a Who's Who in the ATL B-Boy Community was in attendance for this I hosted the Prelims to the SKILL4SOLE Battle... Where the Losing Crew had to literally Give Up their Shoes hence SKILL4SOLE!!! I even brought My Daughter Ashanti out to see this cause I feel that the Youth need to embrace this facet of Hip Hop Culture in a BIG WAY!! Exercise... Exercise... Exercise!!!
THE TWELVE HOTEL @ ATLANTIC STATION
I had to leave the B-Boy jam to head to the Twelve to host a Private Birthday party for My Boy Christian... I was expecting a pretty Decent soiree but nothing prepared Me for what I saw... People all dressed to the Nines looking Oh SO SOPHISTICATED and feeling Good!!! The Live Band was on Point the Hospitality was also on point and after the Cutting of the Cake... it was time to get to work!! I alongside DJ Rasta Root came to Shut Shit Down!! All that were in attendance had a good time(no Requests at All!!)LOL!! I had to have seen perhaps the longest SOUL TRAIN LINE in My Life at this Party... LOL!! It was GREAT!!! Big Up to Christian happy birthday Boy!!and Michelle for Putting the Event together.. you did a GREAT JOB!!!
THE 1128 PROJECT @ D'JANGO EVERY 1st SATURDAY
Now This was the final Event of the Evening... The GRAND EMPERIAL DJ MAJESTIK & I make up a Collective called the 1128 PROJECT and We change lives through the Music!!! LITERALLY!!! We have a Monthly @ d'JANGO and it is definitely a moving Experience!! DJ MAFIOSO got the festivities started upstairs and I have to say on the low He is by far and away one of the most talented & precise DJ's in the World and I feel blessed to be able to work with him whenever I can!! We got set up and started Downstairs around Midnight and came to bring the pain... We went everywhere with the music... The Crowds that usually come to d'Jango now come to hear the Radio... WE ARE SOOOOOO ANTI-RADIO it's not even funny!!! After the Crowd of Regulars got the memo everyone got down to doing their Job so that we could do ours, which was giving the People some good music and a great experience!!! All in all I think we did a GREAT JOB!!! This is a DEFINITE SURE SHOT!!!
and on the 7th Day....
THE BEATnik RESTED!!! See You Soon!!!
