My Photos of Nas, Kendrick Lamar, Jhene Aiko, Daley, Red & Meth, and Everybody Else at ONE Musicfest 2014 (including the Drone)
ONE Musicfest 2014 went down Saturday, Sept. 13 at Aaron's Amphitheater in Atlanta. Here's a big cache of photos taken by yours truly from all sides of the stage.
Thanks to Upscale magazine for allowing me to contribute to this month's issue! You can also find it at my portfolio.
Because you missed it, here are a whole lot of photos from the April 27th OutKast reunion concert. As far as festivals go, Counterpoint was a little nutty and unorganized (we sat in traffic at the site for an hour and a half trying to park), but complications aside, you can't beat OutKast live in Georgia after more than seven years of not performing together. Hootie-Hoo, my friends. Check the shots.
Whoever the guys are behind goldybeats.com, they're obviously brilliant. Two producers (if their profile at TED is "legit") are using the popular website and brand--known for its frequently updated catalog of disruptive speeches on technology, entertainment and design--to promote their own website, at which "hip hop and trap instrumentals" are "for sell." Between the incorrect grammar and the sheer bravado of introducing their hustle to these so-called innovators at TED, I've gotta go on and call it genius.
If you're not at least putting some thought into the question, "Who is the Yellow King?," it means you haven't watched a single episode of True Detective, because there's just no way you could've started watching and just dropped off. It's the best show on TV right now--the one in which the guy who just won one that big Oscar plays the main character. It's highly addictive, with quality acting and incredible writing. So I'll be nice and give you a "spoiler" warning, because I'm about to offer my theory of who will emerge as the central bad guy on Sunday's season finale. Spoiler alert...
...She floods me with dread. Soaked in soul; she swims in my ice, by the bed.
It was only a matter of time. And a matter of my ever-growing 32,300 Twitter followers...
Today is the annual semi-holiday when everybody goes WorldStarHipHop and watches men injure themselves for money, more money, and the chance to kiss a carved glass football. I'm just as guilty as you for letting that dominate all. But I heard bad news, and it sucks. So let's pause just long enough to say some good words before we go back into celebrating American brutality in the name of competitive "sport."
