Ludacris celebrated the 10th Anniversary of his annual LudaDay Weekend.

Chris Brown had Atlanta on fire last night at the 10th Annual LudaDay Weekend. The pop star took Atlanta by storm when he made his grand appearance at the epic basketball game.

The venue at Georgia State University arena. It was so packed that people who purchased tickets couldn’t even get it. The Fire Marshall was trying to shut the basketball game because it was over capacity. People were chattering around the building about Chris Brown and comparing him to Michael Jackson. The venue was packed to capacity. I honestly think they will be having it at Phillips Arena next year. People were mobbing to get to Chris Brown and Ludacris.

Words can’t describe how crunk the celebrity basketball game was this year. I can go on and on and on about the celebrity guests, the celebrity ballers, and the City of Atlanta coming out to show love to Ludacris, The Ludacris Foundation, and giving back to the ATL.

I had the opportunity to get photos of Raven Simone, Kandi Burruss, and Felicia “Snoop from the Wire” Pearson at the Atlanta screening of a dope documentary by the name of ‘The Same Difference’ by Nneka Onuorah.

The screening was sold out to a packed audience of movie viewers excited about the highly acclaimed film and a chance to see some celebs and chat with the Nneka Onuorah, Felicia Pearson, and other members of the cast about the challenges that lesbians face in a world that is geared to celebrate heterosexual, traditional, very WASP norms.
