FutureThe second part of Future‘s Like I Never Left documentary dropped today.  Ciara’s baby daddy stopped while he was on the road opening for Drake‘s “Jungle Tour” stop in Toronto to make some new music with producer in Noah “40” Shebib.  Future chops it up again with Elliott Wilson about this work flow, and how he has consistently dropped chart topping singles every year since he’s been out.

“I came back and dropped nothing but street records after I done dropped No. 1 records. Came back with the mixtapes and gave away free after I had achieved a certain amount of success in the industry and being a superstar in the game or so to speak whatever…To come back to my essence, to my core fans and deliver something that they can accept and live with and feel great about, and accept me as one of your own… like I never left.”

This has got to be one of the dopest events I’ve been to this year!   Ratchet People Meet presented “Socially Profiled”, a Live Sketch Comedy infused with Stand-Up.  Big kudos to TI and 31 Minds for giving back.  They helped with the production, which is cool because they are giving the young comedians a chance to be heard.

DSC_8844I got to watch some of the biggest up and coming black YouTube, Instagram, and Vine stars around.  Although the name might be a turn off to some of you (Ratchet People Meet), don’t hold that against them.  The Ebonics, the slander, and the cursing was actually everything i needed that night and I think that at some point we need to be a little more rathcet.  I think we need to learn how to cut it off but we need a little ratchet in our lives.

Some of the comedians that participated in the show include Emmanuel Hudson, DC Young Fly, Marco Lavelle, Ernestine Johnson, Brussy, Marly St Cloud, Navv Greene, E the Duchess, Will Foskey, Money Bag Mafia.

DSC_8794Detroit rapper Dej Loaf was in the building.  DirecDirector Will Packard surprised the group when he came back stage and showed his support.  PS: Will Packard is one of the biggest movie producers in the country.DSC_8683Director Will Packer surprised the group when he came back stage and showed his support.  PS: Will Packer is one of the biggest movie producers in the country.DSC_8677DC Young Fly getting some great advice from Director Will Packer.DSC_8036Rocko, CEO of Atlanta based A1 Recordings came out as well.  
DSC_8871Most people may not know this, but DC Young Fly grew up in the church.  And his Mother helped him out a lot and no he doesn’t have a young ghetto mama! His mother is 60 and fabulous. And she is doing what every Mother should do which is supporting their kids. Shout out to my boy Bobby and the whole Archive Entertainment crew.  A lot more pics below! READ MORE

I had the opportunity to connect with the newest star of VH1’s “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” at her first Waist Gang Society Brunch at Atlanta’s Sheraton Hotel located at the Cobb Galleria. The sold out event was targeted to business owners who want to learn the secrets to making lots of money, building a solid team, and just learning from a boss like PreMadonna who built a multi-million dollar empire with her Waist Gang Society. The audience shared laughs, networked, and got to learn from a truly dynamic personality in business, reality tv, and life.

DSC_9851My favorite group of all time, Dru Hill,  hit the stage for the Twilight Productions 2 Evening Under the Stars Music Festival at Wolf Creek Amphitheater in Atlanta and smashed!!!  The ladies were all singing along to all the groups songs word for word and the fans were going crazy dancing and having a good time. The guys were also interviewed by my homie, the tallest man I know, Tall Boy.  He got a chance to chat with Dru Hill backstage where they talked about the riots in Baltimore and how to make things better in the city they came from.
