It’s a Celebration – Conclave 2011 – via Indiana

14 Jul

It was a tremendous honor celebrating 100 years of service and achievement with the brothers of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. I was able to spend four days in Indianapolis, Indiana, where all the fesitivites and business meetings were being held. Business and pleasure went hadn in hand this weekend as the meetings took place by day and partying went on during the night, and even in some cases throughout the day.

Shout out to the Zeta Epsilon brothers, my own chapter the Naughty Nu Rho Nupes, Alpha Delta, and all the rest of the nupes I was able to kick it with during my stay in Indiana. It was interesting to tour Indiana as a city. Although the city seemed quite dead on Thursday night, the vibe significantly picked up  closer to the end of the work week. There are so many stories to tell from this weekend, but I will have to let the photos and videos do most of the talking, as I could find myself writing a book on the epicness of my time in Indiana. Take a look below and witness history!

DJ LUPE FIASCO @ Brooklyn Bowl

26 Apr

While in my early college days, my two best friends and I mixed a potion and created the everlasting FRONT ROW MAGIC. Since its birth, FRONT ROW MAGIC has ushered us to the front row of NERD, Jay Z, Lupe Fiasco, Coolio, The Flaming Lips, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and the list goes on and on…and on. It was no different last night at Brooklyn Bowl.

I found myself at odds this past week when I saw that the Lupe Fiasco tickets had skyrocketed to $60 a pop.  Although I was deeply pained by the jump in prices, there was no way I was going to spend that much money to go see Lupe Fiasco at the Roseland in New York City. I’m on a budget! Yet once again, twitter saves the day! As I returned home from an Easter Play at Brooklyn Tabernacle, Lupe Fiasco wrote on Facebook and Twitter that he would be appearing at Brooklyn Bowl after Roseland. Needless to say, it took me thirty minutes to get ready before I was heading to Williamsburg. When I met up with my friends, we were let into Brooklyn Bowl free, as the Salsa band was still playing their set. We waited hours for Lupe Fiasco, but he finally showed up and the two hours he was there was worth the wait! Lupe Fiasco was amazing and showed the crowd so much love, even coming up to us to say a few words. Check out the footage below!

I’ve got to say that my front row magic was in full effect, not to mention we saw Lupe Fiasco free! I love my hometown of BROOKLYN, NY!

NOW THAT’S AN EXPERIENCE!

Wendy Williams – Dancing with the Stars Premier!

20 Mar

Tomorrow, Monday March 21st, eleven pairs of celebrities will take to the stage to compete for the mirrorball trophy. Dancing with the Stars will air its two-hour premier on the ABC channel. Most notable among the cast of the show is Wendy Williams. I think she will prove to offer the better balance of emotional, physical, and comical characteristics.

When I first heard that Wendy would be dancing with the stars, I was very surprised. I didn’t know if my thoughts would lead me to like or dislike her addition to the show; however, after much thought and consideration, I realized Wendy would be perfect for this show. Her stature and humor will be quite interesting to watch.

We have seen the radio personality evolve into a tv personality and actress. If this is the next step for the gossip queen, we can only stand in applause.  I will be watching closely this season to see how things pan out. Good luck to the rest of the contestants!

Follow Wendy on twitter, facebook, and her website!

A Minor Music – Youth Explosion!

16 Mar

Andre Johnson’s A-Minor Musik group brought down the house with guest appearances from Doobie Powell, Jules Bartholomew and Juda Camp, Broken Chainz, and some more notable artists. Rock, rap, gospel, soul, and creative musicianship joined to produce a worship experience like none other.

I thought Jules Bartholomew did an exceptional job heightening the spirit of worship. Doobie Powell was effortless in his musicianship. The chords that he produced were ethereal. Andre Johnson showcased his developed piano skills after A-Minor performed. They did a great job! Listen to some clips from the concert below:





MERCEDES BENZ FASHION WEEK 2011 – Duckie Brown

12 Feb

It’s Fashion Week in NY. A time of fashion do’s and dont’s, mostly dont’s. You spend some time in line waiting for a show to begin, which will most likely begin later than scheduled; however, the beauty of the situation is seeing the pieces you’ve been waiting for months to be released.

Duckie Brown introduced a set of simple, yet structured pieces at his show yesterday. The music was very similar to the clothing, piece-oriented; it worked well with the flow of the models.

Some of my favorite top pieces were:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I enjoyed the inconspicuous extravagance in these blazers and furs:


 

 

 

 

 

 

With spring and summer approaching, this white outfit was strategically placed in the show. Well done.

 



 

And of course I ran into some cool individuals:

So EXTRA, but I dig the confidence.
