Yesterday was the last day for the Baltimore AAHF. This year's celebration was very nice. I thought that the Camden Yards site was a great location. Although the festival was free, I had to pay $10 for parking. That was a little steep, but if you look at it as $10 to see Chaka Khan, Biz Markie, Erika Badu and Lil Bro [depending on the night you went]....it was a steal!!! Apparently, the festival got a few complains about commercialism at the festival. While I had a great time.....I kinda have to agree with this writer's assesment
. Sad, but true: I saw an asian woman selling a T-shirt that read, "I love my People" printed on the shape of Africa (the continent) LOL! it's funny in retrospect, but it was kind of odd and unsettling.
I could shoot myself....I forgot my camera! Sooooooooo...I have no pics to show you. I was rushing to get there and felt that I didn't have the time to turn around. If I would have only knew....NOT only did I have time to go back home...LOL!, but I could have went and got me something to eat. I sat around for like 2 hours. Its all good tho....there were quite a few photographers there...I am sure one of them got some shots. If I am able, I will post some. I looked cute yesterday too...LOL!
The ladies of Baltimore Hip Hop definitely put on a great show! Everyone arrived looking beautiful and ready to set the stage on fiyah! Smooches for all of you - Ms. Stres, Golden Seal (Reflect Son & Jahli) and B. Fly!!! Thank you so much for making me feel part of your show. I had a great time!!! I wished I could rap more than I ever have in my life yesterday. I need a ghost writer!!!! LOL! just playin! Im noooooo rapper! Surprise additions included, G.E.M. (formally known as Tha Plague) and Nic Soprano. Sound truly does make a huge difference. The sound was great!!!! I even came out liking a song that I originally thought was aiight!
