    It's Baltimore Baby LIVE!! Recap pt. 1
    Thanks DNA for spinning during the break!



    I apologize for the delay........

    I want to to thank everyone that came out to the show from the bottom of my heart. Its always a wake up call when you look out into a sea of faces and know very few of them. Now........this used to bother me, but not.........AM OVER JOYED when I see new faces because that means the message is spreading and the movement is getting bigger. I was initially really stressed............I THOUGHT I had an opening act ONLY to find out they wouldn't be able to make it. I'm not going to say any names or get into details (they are my peoples), but under normal circumstances......you stand me up for a show - You get NO more for a long time (if ever!). With the line up I assembled....choosing the line up was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Really.....I couldn't go wrong, but you know how artists with big egos are - NO ONE WANTS TO GO FIRST.....LOL!
    *
    I'm going to come back a lil later with my thoughts on the performers and show in general......but 4 now:
    *


    Swirrel Wyde (from 92 Q) - aaaaah man! The Smut King was in da building. LOL! I so appreciate the fact that he came and showed his face in the spot. Some of yall know how I talk about Swirrel's antics.....LOL! I can't stand all the "noodle" talk, but the man holds Bmore Hip Hop down......so I would never talk side ways about him. I honestly felt honored when I saw him.....it makes me feel like other people are starting to see the magic that is in the air surrounding the local scene. Swirrel is developing a very respectable reputation around the city as someone at the station that has the balls to actually play a song that he likes. Keep it!!! We need a few more Swirrel on the team.


    Tislam [pictured above] - CONGRATS!!!! You are a SUPER promoter LOL! Who else would have a flyer for the event they were attending. Although Ike was the first to pull out.....he too must have sensed that there was someone out there that would appreciate it just a tad bit more. Like I told you that night......you are probably one of the best persons to have won the prize......You would get it!!!
    Pen Dragon - T.A.'s the GANG! BANG! BMORE BABY!!! Good seeing ya!
    Greenspan - Nice meeting you! Keep in touch!
    Young Crip - Thanks for coming. I'm so so so glad you enjoyed the show! Crip's man (thank goodness I didn't get his name) looked like he wanted to slap me when I told him that Crip couldn't perform....LOL! A lot of times at these shows people have no concept of what I am dealing with.....they just see me standing some where and automatically think that I am doing nothing at allm telling all of you like I told about 5 people that night.......THIS AIN'T THAT KIND OF SHOW!!! If you are not on the card.......you will not perform. I am sure this is the same courtesy you want extended to you when it is your time to shine.
    Low Key God and Ray Lugar - I always appreciate ya'll support!!
    ARS (Niige and Mike Mc Intosh) - Was good seeing you both. You know the party's official if ya'll come out!! See ya'll @ the Latin Palace on August 20th.
    Kariz (Bang-N-Beat) - Thanks so much for your continued support! I truly hope this show restored your faith in Baltimore Hip Hop!!!
    *
    Invisible Set Entertainment (D.O.G. [pictured above], Poppa Gwac, Mo Banks, John Boh* & all the other handsome studs in the crew) Look at my peoples TM [cutie in the light green T - above ] * R.I.P. - John Boh informed me that he was mourning the recent loss of daughter. He was at the event trying to take his mind off the funeral that was scheduled for the next day. Please keep them both in your prayers.

I know they were awesome.....I'd especially like the see the ones you got of Brown F.I.S.H. That set was something special and my camera is not really good at capturing the mood of a place.....I can get a shot, but never a lot of the color.
    RAH RAH - photographer extroidonairre! Thanks for coming!!!
    Ab Rock - I think I saw u, but know we did not talk!
    E- Thanks for coming through!!! Can't wait for the upcoming Spoken Word/Hip Hop Sound Clash Jump -off!!!

    Tim (reppin M.O.L.) - You my peoples!!!! Thanks for chilling out with your peeps all night!

    Jason Torres - Thanks a bunch for all of your kind words. I was a lil frazzled earlier in the evening, but Jason totally put me at ease. Def let me know how the pool game turned out.

I will get up with you both and get your full opinion of the show.

    Al Shipley (Government Names) - Thank you for coming out! I had a NOE cd for you, but it totally slipped my mind. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the show. I lost track of you after a while, but it sounds like you saw it all - That's what's up!

If I can do anything for ya............please let me kno!

    Theo Productions and B. Hurd were in the building! For those of you that are not aware...........Theo produced many of our Bmore Club Favorites, in particular, "Shorty You Phat". I love that song! His newest artist, B. Hurd, recently hit me up on MYSPACE and it was nice to finally put a face with the back and fourth. DUDE is tall as hell! Im like six feet and I felt like a dwarf next to him...........LOL! I'm looking forward to hearing more from these dudes in the near future.

    I think I saw Born King.....LOL! It was very early in the eve and I def didn't see him again! If you were there boo....thanks a mil for coming out...........if I didn't see you...I am MESSED UP!

    F.I.S.H.story: B-Fly f/ Jahiti "Fire and Brimstone" (video shoot)







    Girl Power in abundance!!!! This was a totally awesome experience. It was so nice that so many of B's friends hadcome out to support.....combined that with the number of familiar faces in the place & you can imagine the type of party we had up in there. Femi, Olu, Golden Seal, Jeneba Suma, Labtekwon, LB of Streetlegal Ent., Kelly Connelly, LT, Neil Norris (of PX), Frontline (Baltimore), Tasha (who was a great production manager), Melanie (who was workin those white shorts) & a few other ppl who's names are excaping me right now...we even had visitors from South Africa. Jahiti (of Brown F.I.S.H.) is starring in the video, but does no talking...matter of fact he's just running throughout...LOL! I don't want to give too many details out....but this will be very different from the normal videos you see being produced by ppl in Baltimore. Grasshopper Philms is shooting it so i expect it to be very creative and intellectual in a very "art house" kind of way. He and his staff were very professional and seemed to work well together. The caterer was great!!! We dined on fried fish, string beans and a very cheesy mac and cheese.....cooked a lil darker - the way I like it. The caterer is having an event at the Milford Mill Swim Club on 8.27.06 (12 PM - 8 PM). Its a reggae theme so I would expect lots of delicious island delicacies. I atempted to post the slide show for you, but its not working properly. Ill figure something out tho......

    in the meantime............ I hope you enjoy these pics!

    MYSPACE UPDATE - Part II

    It appears that Tom and friends were doing some sort of a database switch. A message was posted at nearly noon EST after pandemonium broke loose. I received tons of phone calls and emails leading up to me notifying my database of people which is why I decided to notify you.
    *
    Hopefully your account is back up and running. It would have been nice to be notified in advance that they were going to do a switch and prepare the MySpace "networkers" like myself so that the fear of loss information didn't set in.
    *
    I say this though, make sure you get all your information that you store there and save it to your computer if you haven't done so already. Always have a back up plan. MySpace is a GREAT tool, but we shouldn't rely on it for our success. (REAL TALK!)

    evicted from MY - SPACE

    I finally had the chance to check out my MYSPACE page this morning....
    I'm sending out a Huge "THANK YOU" to everyone that left feedback.
    *
    I was attempting to send a comment and instead of an acceptance message....I am informed (in red) that either I had deleted my account or that my membership had been deleted. I thought it was just me - I'm like who???? WTF??? But then, I checked my e-mail and realized that I am not alone......
    *
    HERE IS THE OFFICIAL WORD from a very reliable source:
    I am not going to get long winded on this one or creative and colorful. I am merely passing on some information to the MySpace crazed.You might want to check on your account. It appears that someone has hacked the system and accounts are getting deleted by the minute.I don't know about you, but when you look at how WORLD wide and powerful MySpace has become, it was only a matter of time before the government would step in.

We are going to make Hip Hop solo lady friendly if I have anything to do with it.(notice I didn't say chicken head, hoodrat, chick, thugette, ect.) I too am a female fan ...so I know what it feels like to want to go out, but none of your friends want to come with you.
