L.T. Hutton (Producer)- Kat Graham (Jada Pinkett)- Demetrius Shipp(Tupac)

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of photographing the #AllEyezOnMe Atlanta press conference with cast members Demetrius Shipp Jr, Kat Graham, Creator & Producer L.T. Hutton.  The event was held at DJ Drama’s Mean Street where media got a chance to have an intimate chat with the cast. So happy that this movie is finally hitting the big screen. Take a look some pictures from the press conference! Be sure to check out the movie June 16th , in theaters everywhere !

 

 

 
“I’m starting to feel like a runaway slave, they got me rocking all these whips and these chains” are lyrics from the first song “Runaway Slave” on the 70 West LP, which introduces the listener to this complex mind. Reasn explains, “I wont get caught up in the flashy shit, I will use my gift for real issues.” A force to be reckoned with, Columbia, Missouri singer/songwriter Reasn makes a statement with powerful honest lyrics, bold falsetto and a refreshing sonic blend of urban drums with classic rockguitars. His name has gradually spread over the past year after releasing an EP and debut album in November 2016 and touring with multi-platinum selling artist BoB.

 
 
Reasn’s passion for singing developed early on singing in church where his mother was a choir director. At a young age he started songwriting, which became a main outlet for him. Performing consistently during his teenage years, Reasn’s talents led him to travel to various cities around the country from St Louis to Atlanta to New York and finally Los Angeles, where he is based now.
 
Once in LA, he connected with a couple of producers who gave him the freedom to experiment sonically and lyrically, combining classic and edgy and playing with elements of R&B, hip hop, pop and classic rock. Soon after he formed his band and opened for the likes of Estelle, PJ Morton, Tinashe, Trinidad James and BoB.
 
In January 2016 Reasn released his debut EP “70 West” on Soundcloud, which garnered over 1 million streams. His music videos for his singles “Blue Fame” and “Killer” premiered on FuseTV and Billboard.com. While touring with multi-platinum selling artist BoB the summer of 2016, he premiered his most recent socially conscious video “American Dream” on RevoltTV, which he performed at BET Music Matters showcase in NYC and ASCAP “On the come up” in LA. 
“Had a dream I was President, then I woke up in jail” is the first line in his song “American Dream”, a song that resonates across generations and depicts the ongoing hardships and prejudice African Americans still face today. 
 
In November he released an album 70 West LP with remastered songs off the EP and 5 new songs with features from Trae tha Truth and Watch The Duck.  2017 already looks bright for this soul rocker, with a new album in the works and a tour planned for the spring/summer.
 
As a singer-songwriter Reasn strives to make music that is honest and timeless, influenced by some of the greatest…The Beatles, Marvin Gaye, Prince, Michael Jackson, artists who are not afraid to take risks and cross boundaries and musical genres. When Reasn is asked about the type of music he makes he explains, “I’m bringing back Rock and Roll into black music and I’m adding today’s urban culture to it”. I call it “Urban Rock”…

 Keshia stands by her friend and day 1 star Bill Cosby’s my homie said she came to the courthouse on the first day of his sexual-assault trial because she would want similar support if “the tables were turned.”

 AP report Keshia Knight Pulliam, who played Rudy on “The Cosby Show,” said Monday that “ultimately it’s about standing by your truth.” And, she said, her truth was to be at court and to be supportive.

“I want to be the person that I would like to have if the tables were turned,” said Knight Pulliam, 38. “Right now it’s the jury’s job and the jury’s decision to determine guilt or innocence. It’s not mine or anyone else’s.” READ MORE

Last night was epic night; I got the chance to celebrate with one of the most outstanding and influential men of our time Ambassador Andrew Young. Atlanta’s former mayor celebrated his 85th birthday with grandeur and style with dignitaries from all walks of life at Phillips Arena. 
 
Ambassador Andrew Young has done so much for the city of Atlanta, for our people, for our country and for the world. He’s known as the ambassador to the world and tonight the world celebrated his special day. The birthday celebration included a phenomenal concert and turned into an award show celebrating the work of two outstanding
people who serve.  I once heard on the news that it’s nearly impossible to pack Phillips Arena but there were people everywhere and the event was near capacity. The crowd was electric and Atlanta was there to celebrate the life of Ambassador Young.
