HARD SUMMER DAY 2.

 

IMG_1917

Shoulda named this post Ty Dolla $ign but you get it haha. I love Ty. He was my first on camera interview 4 or 5 years ago, and it was lit. I was stoked to say wsup to him today bc every other time he’s surrounded by mad bitches haha. Really though.

I always said, anything Ty touches is gold. Now I say that about Jeremih lmao but still. I watched Ty come up as an artist and he’s so incredibly talented. Salute to him bc I actually really truly fuck with him as an artist and a person. You know some people be tripping with their shit personalities. Ty’s a real one. And today was all him haha.

So, I can’t tell if the mish today was worse than yesterday lmao. We went earlier this time which was probably why it was so bad. Literally hot af again. Sweating in my ass cheeks on the ride down lmao. Sorry no filter here. AND they blocked off all the exits and shit, making everyone’s lives incredibly difficult. It took us so mf long to get to the media room again haha. Fuck Auto Speed Runway.

But no one had confirmed interviews today minus Ty. Desiigner’s team rejected me I was sad haha. Ty was throwing a listening event for his upcoming project Campaign, at the Jagermeister building in the middle of the festival. The flier said 5-6pm and when did he come? After 6pm lmao. We found out he was stuck in traffic but nah. BPT is real haha.

I had a good time catching up with my girl during the wait though. Shout out to her and for listening to my problems lmao. I went deep. I’m going through some shit. And doubting my faith :(. It’s been really hard and I’ve kept it inside this whole time. I really need to figure out my ish. Cause I’m confused…

ANYWAYS. When he did show up it was mad lit. The best part was Ty DJing! He was seriously DJing haha and he played Timmy Turner which I thought was hilarious. Shoutout to his manager for hooking it up with a Campaign shirt too haha you know I love free shit.

Also need to take a moment to rag on all the dumb hoes freaking out trynta take Snaps with Ty. Any artist really. I definitely fan girl, so I can’t talk. But when I’m observing and seeing people so fucking desparate to get a selfie, it’s rough. I literally cringe.

So homeboy (dude on my team who I’ve come to love, shout out to him for driving) was supposed to get an interview before Ty’s set at 7:35pm but that didn’t happen. But it worked out beautifully bc we got to go on stage for his set haha. Seriously he had EVERYBODY at Hard turnt. It was dope af and he seriously had a turnout.

Also got to people watch the entire crowd so that was fun ha. He brought out Joe Moses. I turned to the dude next to me and was like, what percent of the crowd do you think knows who Joe Moses is lmaoooo.

Me and my girl had a moment with the sunset. Ha. The little things. And shoutout to homeboy who copped the interview with Ty after. He was turnt so I think he talked a lot more than he normally would have. Also, he looked literally crazy when he jumped in the crowd ha. His eyes (beautiful eyes) were so big. It was kinda scary.

So tired rn haha and got some shit to do. Overall dope weekend. I will never attend another festival though (unless I’m covering) haha literally can’t do it. Oh, saw someone carry a huge sign that said “Dear world, please bring ratchet back.” That was epic.

Muah.

TRACK OF THE DAY: Coming soon.

HARD SUMMER.

IMG_1906

Flosstradamus has changed my life in more ways than I can describe haha. Only a few people will understand. But yeah. They are a DJ duo from the Midwest, I would say the kings of trap. Minus RL Grime. Interviewing them was beautiful. They’re the most chill artists to speak with. Super real and just down to earth .

They better be because we pushed the biggest mish to get this lmao. Literally got the media pass for work, and they were the only reasons I pushed to Fontana. Hard Summer is always the move, but this year at Auto Club Speedway… is NOT the move. First off, it’s like the worst heat wave rn. And worse down there. Also been having really bad nightmares driving. Literally almost died again the other day and got real real sad. The reality that I’m a terrible drive just really set in man.

So my co-worker drove. Shout out to him. I filled his tank though ha. Shout out to me. Joking. I was just so happy I didn’t have to drive. Literally the ride down was brutal because no AC (which I was used to) and there were so many accidents. We left a little before 4pm and barely walked in around 6pm.

AND THEN. The worst part… the actual venue. Fuck that venue man haha. It’s HUGE. Massive. Normally for Nascar racing, which makes sense. But yeah, my homies were all there, super fucked up. My bf from home literally made me laugh SO HARD (lawl get it). I was asking if he was at Travis Scott because we had walked by his set (lit per usual), and he goes “Ya he’s on next.” I was like BRO. He’s on now. LMAO. I was crying. Shit was mad funny.

But yeah so…. I had to write this post to highlight the crazy feelings I got walking into this damn festival. Like I was the biggest hater EVER. Ask my team lmao. I was hating sooo hard on everyone when I used to be one of them. So nuts. Idk, maybe I was jealous of their fun, but I was just so turned off by the rave scene. Everyone on drugs made me not miss it but I do miss the priceless memories I’ve made with my friends. I miss that part a lot.

It took us I swear like 40 minutes to find the media room. And my point of contact for Floss was giving me attitude and I was like bro, I pushed 3 hours to get here, don’t play me rn. Fr I thought they were gonna bail and I was about to be a raging bitch haha. Which I fully embraced getting… Literally no worker knew where anything was. EVEN PARKING. Like no one knew where media could park. It was about the most frustrating thing ever. Hard, or whoever put on the event, please be more organized. Shit is not cool.

The venue was just so rough. Literally maneuvering around took 5x the amount of time as it should have. Stairs and going all the way around something when it would just be so easy if there was no gate present. Sigh. I’m so beat haha. Had a venti white mocha frap on the way and literally had to pee so tough. Not complaining though. We literally kicked it in the media room and just chatted. They have water and wifi haha. Eseentials. We caught some of Ice Cube’s set after, which was lit. Literally couldn’t see shit on stage though. Stan.

On my way out I stepped right into a huge pile of mud. I literally almost had a heart attack bc I thot it was shit haha. Literally was about to give up in that moment if it was…But yeah my foot was soaked. And I wore sandals. WOW. Wtf Shirls. Wtf. Shout out to my girl who sacrificed her water bottle so I could clean it off. Shit was dramatic haha.

OMG and then on our way home, we saw a fucking high speed police chase on the other side of the freeway. It was the first time I seen that shit IRL. It was so crazy and scary and my girl was actually caught in it. So fucking crazy I would have a panic attack haha. Wonder what the dude is running from… or if it’s gonna be on the news.

My insomnia sucks bc it affects my day. And it’s gone. Le sigh. Also doing laundry now and my sheets and hate this shit haha. I’m sad I couldn’t meet up with anyone today. Ran into one person I knew, where I had a brain fart how I knew him. Smh. I hate when that happens :(. Ran into my other girl who was “working” the event lmao. We out here.

Super reflective rn haha. The long drive had us in deep convo about some shit. Life is crazy guys. And shouldn’t be harder than it needs to be. Fr.

I miss my brother lmao. Muahs.

TRACK OF THE DAY: New track alert.

The Land.

0

Wow. Just wow. This movie was dope af. The Land executive produced by Nas, aka GOAT, aka daddy, aka he walked right by me and my girl and I had a moment lmao. This was the premiere of the film at The Theater at Ace Hotel in downtown LA. Such a fucking sick venue. It’s so beautiful up in there. It was my girl’s first time and she loved it.

Peep the trailer: http://hiphopdx.com/videos/id.23140/title.nas-releases-new-trailer-for-film-the-land

So, it features Erykah Badu (who also helped produce it) and Machine Gun Kelly, but it’s such a tease lmao. MGK literally has like maybe a minute in the film haha. BUT, it takes place in his hometown of Cleveland. And I didn’t really realize Erykah was in it until after the movie. Her role is nuts. She plays a dope addict.

I loved this movie too much. Seriously Indie films are way better than mainstream. I would love to see this in theaters. It’s about a group of teenage skateboards pursuing their dream, but end up having to hustle to get there. It really sheds light on the streets of Cleveland which I thought was mad dope. Life gets real in this movie for sure.

The cast was super lit and most were there to speak after the movie. We had seats in the very back row and we legit got up to get closer ha. We would. No one cared though. Everyone in the movie was dope. It was super emotional and I got chills a couple times throughout. Nas kills it. Just the business aspect of it haha like… he prob just hired a bunch of people to do the nitty gritty work. Solid move though.

Besides that, the soundtrack to this film is FIRE. Like every track is fire. I posted a ton of them so I got to slowly hear it each day, which was lit haha. I really liked it though. I’m on a high as you can tell.

Work got me all types of fucked up. Life and the unknown future got me in my feelings. But there’s nothing I can do but keep my head up high and stay up. Got so much to do so I’ma get off but, yeah. Life.

I love Lil Yachty. Bye.

TRACK OF THE DAY: One of the tracks off the soundtrack. So dope. “Life is a test.”

XXL 2016 Freshmen Live.

Yooooooo. You know this show is about to be lit. I really fucked with the XXL Freshmen list this year, and I know the majority of my friends did not haha. The ones that really like Hip Hop hated this … Continue reading
