TURN DOWN FOR WHAT?!? Click pic to PLAY Video

TURN DOWN FOR WHAT?

The other reason that I’m on fire, and woke up feeling flight,
is because The PLUGGED IN Concert is going down tonight!!!

Recently I wrote About The 80’s and of the music of the time,
MTV, Rock n Roll and Rap immediately came to mind.

Plugged IN Concert 2014Well when this PLUGGED IN event was in pre-production and in the audition stage,
I saw the talent and deemed it valiant; reminiscent of those 80’s days.

I remember waking up to Headbangers Ball and getting YO! MTV Raps, on the weekends.
I remember thinking Motley Crew, Metallica and De La Soul were my personal friends.

It was a beautiful adolescents begin and to good music I am still kin,
which is why I’m excited about tonights concert: PLUGGED IN.

If you’re in the Chandler (Phoenix) metroplex this eve and you’re looking for something to do,
please know, there’s a seat for you at the concert and — It’s FREE too!
(Donations will be appreciated)

I am turnt up, for REEL, for QUI FILMS will be reeling the show,
I’m Qui
and I woke up like this. I’m giddy-beaming. Come with. Let’s go!

I’m
PLUGGED IN and Turnt Up
I’ll save a seat for you in the cut.

YouTUBE knows all about it – Here in this VIDEO you can clearly see
what Fab5Freddy is doing these days with timeless moments and bling bling.

Studding out icons like YO! MTV Raps
that HIP HOP Show – he put on the map. 🙂

From flashy strippers on poles – who are doing their thing,
to historical boxing moments snatched right from the ring.

Fab5Freddy has studded it all
His exhibition likens to a players ball.

Nevada is the prrrr’fect place for the Fab5 touch;
Cali housed the gold – Vegas has the STUD RUSH.

Since “Everybody’s fly”, do let us keep it real:
Texans likes STUDS too – thus we got them grills. lol!

Am I a bling-ling lover? An Art loving mother? HECK YES!!!

PURPOSE

In Griot, Movies, Music, News, TV Shows on April 26, 2010 at 7:26 pm

Life PURPOSE. What is your lifes PURPOSE? Some find out early in life like Fab 5 Freddy.

Fred Brathwaite is his birth name, but around the globe he’s recognized as the Graffiti Artist famous for the subway spray painting done in 1979 with LEE Quinones (a tribute to Andy Warhol’s famous Campbell Soup piece). ART was the PURPOSE. Fab 5 Freddy went on to aid the facilitation of HIP HOP into America’s mainstream pop culture when he hosted YO! MTV RAPS – the perfect global segway into black culture…through Rap.

YO! brought black people (and many other races) from every corner around the world onto one insightful accord through Saturday morning joints hosted by yours truly: Fab 5 Freddy. An impactful and historical vien was opened and Mr. Brathwaite was at the helms. What a PURPOSE. HIP HOP: A HUGE cultural watermark that still moves the world on a whole — to one beat. A Grafitti Artist, turned Rap Show Host, turned Music Video Director, Documentary Producer, Co-exec Film Producing, Co Exec VH1 Hip Hop Honors Producing and now a YOUTUBE Curator… ART. He’s ba-aack.

A recent email from the Legend lead me to a YOUTUBE Curator page hosted by Fab 5 Freddy. Check out his new ART Concept on the video. It’s a jewel of a concept. He can’t help but pioneer and “host”

I believe this young man started his career in his teens.
Time has graciously missed him completely by crease or seam.

Some are lucky to find one purpose while Fab has found many.
When it comes to pioneering opportunities – his name comes up plenty.

I’ve noticed that his eyes still gleam when he’s talking about his ART.
I fancy the Legends mindI’m a digger of deep intellect & smarts.

Heightened knowledge is sound and Longevity is key,
I’m Qui

PURPOSE‘ful in my Griot formatspost educated by Fab 2+3.

I bet’cha didn’t know that. Oooo Weee.
His Knowledgable PURPOSE has also influenced me.
