(Event Recap)…Graffiti DC = A Deep, Dope DC Experience

Written by thejasminebrand in Blog

As you know, the kid is pretty shallow at times. Wednesday night, I became momentarily deep, as I had the opportunity to be a guest judge at Graffiti DC.

What the hell is Graffiti DC? Glad you asked. Every 3rd Wednesday, and over a period of eight months, eight poets compete for the title of Graffiti DC slam champion and chance to walk away with the grand prize of $2,000. The event took place at Liv Nightclub, with yours truly as a guest judge. Graffiti DC featured poet Oveous Maximus (who was featured on HBO’s Def Jam, is an Apollo winner, bringing light-skinned back, etc.), Drew Law (funny white boy w/ a head band) hosting, Pages co-hosting, DJ KI spinning and Fuze and Chairman’s Reserve sponsoring. The dude behind the scenes who oversees the entire operation (and yells a few jokes and inappropriate vulgarities during performances) is Beny.

Now that I got that out of the way, let me just briefly summarize my expectations vs my experience.

Ear Hustlin…Reality Show in the Works for Chad & Evelyn

Written by thejasminebrand in Blog

According to TMZ, Ochocinco and Evelyn, who have recently announced their engagement, are in talks with VH1 to develop their own reality show. Potentially, the show would capture the process of leading up to their actually wedding.  Word has it that VH1 offered the show immediately after news broke that they were engagement. As you know, Chad already does at least a cameo on the upcoming season of Basketball Wives. If the money’s right, I think we’ll see a show similar to Lala’s Full Court Wedding.
