Had a great time this past Tuesday at Melodic Confessions held @ Edens Lounge in Baltimore, MD. Kariz was my very fun date for the evening. My bad, Kariz for leaving you at the mercy of all the other women in the spot all night. LOL! We walked in together and I didn’t really see him again until almost the end….Yall know Ima mingler! Despite my rudeness....he made me feel so good – as usual….he was bigging me up all night to people. LMBAO! People were coming up to me like, “Hi. Im so and so. What do you do?” I always tell people word of mouth or someone personally vouching for you is the best form of promotion. I really need to put him and Shakeen on my payroll…....as soon as I get one. he he
Speaking of Sha…..the Kartel were most definitely in the building. I was invited to come down and watch them rip it with the live band. The BAND was awesome….I HAD TO ADD DAT! Magic (Kartel Head Honcho) was livid with the guys because he felt their performance was sub par (Magic is such a PER-fectionist), but the looks on Shakeen and Karlito’s faces made it hard to stay mad at them for long….LOL! They had a ball!!! I’m sitting there in the middle ....them smiling…..magic frowning…..Im not sure if I should smile or frown….it was quite a funny moment. That is the kind of stuff I wish I had on a DVD!!! The moment was real..couldn't stage that one! Under normal circumstances the kartel rips it...so Ima chalk their less than stellar performance up to inexperience. This was their first time with live instrumentation & they winged it...LOL! Please do not let my recollection discourage you.....The Kartel has a new mixtape in the streets & Karlito's solo demonstration is coming soon….whenever you see one of them…holla & tell them I sent cha. They most def make good music & let's face it...rockin with a band ain't for everyone....don't beat your self up! Thank God for "Next time".....
Also, got the opportunity to talk to Colby (I’ma call you!!!), the award-winning photographer, about a photo shoot for moi. I know he could work magic with me! He took some very cool pics of a past Style Warz and did some really funky things with the lighting….I love creative photographers. He is a student at the Ohio University studying photography…I wish you much success and look forward to working with you on future projects. I know TIME mag has been calling, but please keep MY prices subsidized! Ima bawla on a budget!
Other memorable performances included those of Che Ray and Jeneba Suma (funny memory: she was up in the joint selling tix for Brown Sugar II during her set....now that is multi-tasking). Baltimore has so many talented performers here…wow! These 2 alone give me hope! I just hope they remember me and show love when they finally blow…cause its gonna happen – SOON if I have anything to say about it. Kariz was feeling all nostalgic…..he mentioned that the energy has NEVER felt this right! I have to agree…even if not for the same reasons he stated…LOL!
Oh and Kariz....my first question for Oprah would be:
What does it feel like to sleep on $1000 sheets? he he
"I wanna see what dat feel like" ......... in my best Day Day voice (Mike Epps - Friday After Next).
I have a real sheet fetish! its no joke! ONLY 400 thread count or better for me!
