He’s a Classic Man…

So, last night was pretty epic for a Tuesday night.  I attended an event hosted by Vevo (major props and many thanks for the invite!) that highlighted their breakout artist of the year.  This year’s being Jidenna.  Now, I must admit that I don’t listen to Jidenna on the reg and really am only familiar with his ‘Classic Man’ song.  However, after seeing him live and hearing the new music he has lined up… holy. smokes.

The man is a natural entertainer.  From his facial expressions to his dance moves to his way of working the crowd, Jidenna has gained a new fan from me.  It also helped that he was performing literally right in front of me.  So cool.

At the NeueHouse venue in Hollywood, Syd and I checked in and were greeted with complimentary champagne.  There was an open bar with cocktails named after Jidenna songs and trends – very tasty BTW.  And as if the drinks weren’t enough of a treat, cue the mac and cheese bar and french fry cups.  I mean.  My dream.  But yes, thank you again to Vevo for being the host with the most!

Now back to the real star.  Check out my Snapchat story (ergense) from last night to get a better feel of what went down with Vevo’s breakout artist of the year!

Wiz Khalifa LA Listening Party 2.8.16

Last night was LITTY!

What I thought would have been a chill night of me standing in the background, listening to Wiz play some tracks from his new album at last night’s listening party, turned into a LIT SITUATION.  I shuffled my way to the front, per usual, and was essentially at the main table with Wiz, Juicy J, Travi$ Scott, and Ty Dolla $ign.  And was great seeing JCruz from Power 106, as well!

The party was at the Blind Dragon and hosted by the one and only Ms. Karen Civil.  She gave updates on Wiz’s arrival time, introduced him, and then handed the mic over to Wiz.  She also gave a shout out to Wiz’s mom and said, “Shout out to Wiz’s mom who is here.  Whenever I’m in Pittsburgh, she always takes good care of me.”  #californyinz

Wiz went over different meanings behind the tracks, rapped a little, and just had a great time. And DJ Bonics, Wiz’s official DJ was spinning.  It was dope, and I’m really glad I was able to go!  It was all truly a big #californyinz moment.

I even rocked a Pittsburgh shirt, which gained a little attention and served as a conversation starter. #netWORQUE

Peep the video to see just how close I was.
