summer spirit festival

you wanna hear some real music have a good time and see black folks together enjoying life with no issues

this was the place to be last night

here was the line up:
Janell Monea
Common
Chuck Brown
The Roots
Erykah Badu


When i say it was a party it was a PARTY!

we were there right at the end of Monea's set, but we saw everyone else...I had seen everyone before except Common and let me tell you my baby daddy put on a SHOW! loved it
Chuck of course had the entire crowd rocking for an hour straight...i downed my food as quickly as possible so i could get up and dance...they did a tribute to DMV legend Lil Bennie...when they hit

"i see the light, I see the party light, the red and blue and heather green...so everybody come on let's party down and if you don't get the hell outta here..."

when they hit that pocket! this girl went off...they even showed video of lil Bennie when he was with the Masters, dude that was like the mid 80s i was a youngin fo real but my brothers and him are around the same age...so i came up on the music...

anyways i went off on a a go go tangent huh...

Common was the best, then Chuck then Erykah, I have seen her numerous times so i know that she likes to change it up every time...this time it wasn't enough funk, more meloncony...she was FLYY as hell though!

I mean hair blond in a mohawk with some loubitan's on and a banging dress...

LOVED it...

I also loved her hip hop free style, she is conscious but still has that street flare, not to toot my own horn, but something like what i try to be...there is nothing wrong with being multi dimensional...and she is that and that's one of the things that really draws me to her...the fact that she is so layered...

i always say i am like an onion and i am and its cool to see others as layered as me...

it was a perfect ending to a GREAT week...

now i chill, reflect, snack, eat, and chill some more

so i'll leave you all with this...complexity




and i can't leave this post without a video of lil Bennie....
