Nas performed dayum near his entire catalog at Thursday night’s BMI Unsigned Artists Showcase. In the clips that I’ve posted below, he’s performing “Black President” “I Want to Talk To” and “My President is Black” as well as “Street Dreams” & “If I Ruled the World”.? His performance was amazing but my videos are lacking. Blame that loud “A”zz speaker I was standing next to… 😆
The 12th Annual Unsigned Urban Showcase was held at E.S.S.O Nightclub last night. The event was hosted by DJ Khaled and featured performances by the NAS; Trey Songz and more! I’ll post pictures and more video later…y’all know it’s Friday and I’m bout to be out. So in the meantime, peep Trey Songz in his live finale performance of “Last Time” below:
Sheree?Whitfield from Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta shares her tales of partying in the “A” way before the time restrictions were put into place. When JD’s verse from “Welcome to Atlanta” really rang true ~ “The party don’t stop til 8 in the morning…” When Club 112 was in the Kroger Shopping Center on Piedmont. When Deon Sanders played for the Falcons and had a club christened by his jersey number. When Dominique Wilkins still played for the Hawks. *sigh* Memories.
Yes…there’s still plenty of places to go party long into the wee hours of the morning, but if you’re leaving club that closes at 3am and don’t know where to go…. you’re just sh*t outta luck cause most of us ain’t gonna tell ya! 😆 <~~ I kid. but not really.
Oh Hell Naw! Spotted at an Atlanta area elementary school ~ a kid wearing a “Freaknik 95” t-shirt. I have no words…um, yes I do… to the Parents: you are DEAD WRONG for letting your kid wear your dirt on his back! I mean…Freaknik 95 was the joint but Man-Man wasn’t even a twitch in his Dad’s crotch yet! 😕 (Link)
I couldn’t let this day go by without acknowledging Lil Man Man who wore his Freaknic 95 shirt to class last year. Y’all still wrong for that…
Monica discusses her favorite O.S.A.M. (Old School Atlanta Memory). She fondly reminisces about winning her first talent show at the age of 11 by singing “The Greatest Love of All” at Center Stage. She had me dying when she told me that she was “in the midst of getting a ponytail…not my own” and arrived at the venue with her hair molded so that she could be on time!
Monica also spoke about how she felt the love from her hometown of the “A” and how Ryan Cameron, Kevin Wells & Dallas Austin, who were all there to support her first big day, are still in her life today.
