I’ve never been to Europe before and I’ve never been on tour (or a tour bus,) and I got to do BOTH this month! I went out for a few days with my bro, and we hit Amsterdam, Belgium and Paris. It was such an amazing experience!
More pics below.
To kick off Hispanic Heritage Month, Hennessy and my girl Nicky Garcia‘s Her Own Lane brand partnered up to honor 20 Latina women in media. There were women there from radio, TV, publicity, record labels and more.
I love how we all truly support and uplift one another! Unidas somos más poderosas!

My own notes:
This was THE dopest party I’ve ever attended in LA! It felt like the early 90s! Snoop Dogg was obviously there, as well as Warren G, Mack 10, Kurupt, Xzibit and so many more iconic west coast figures! The screening was held in the lot of Snoop‘s compound, and prior to the film, everyone was just kicking it and the vibe was too cool! So honored to have been there. Check out the film on YouTube now!
I did a lot of dope shit this month…and barely took pictures of anything! SMH!
I kicked June off with a week-long trip back home to the east side. While I was there I visited Rosenberg‘s Complex show, Open Late, kicked it with the fam at Ebro In The Morning, hosted Zombie‘s fourth annual celebrity basketball game in his hometown of Willingboro, NJ and my favorite of all – Summer Jam!
Upon my return, Netflix hosted a really dope activation in LA, celebrating their strong black leads. I did a cute boomerang vid there at least, but I can’t embed it on the site so just use your imagination to envision how cool it was. Ha!
BET Weekend was next up and man, it was a LOT! The only pics I got from that are a really blurry selfie with Zombz, and a hilarious video of an unbothered me in front of many strippers at Blac Youngsta‘s party. Unfortunately, IG took the video down, so now all I have is a screenshot of it. LOL!
The month ended with my girl Nicky‘s #MoneyMoves workshop for her Her Own Lane brand, and it was amazing to see so many dope, goal-oriented women in one room. It inspired me to put together my own event for women who want to break into media, so stay tuned!
Despite getting LAID OFF from my job, May was pretty cool! I hit Buddy and Ty Dolla $ign‘s video shoot in Compton with Guapdad and Childish Major (as seen above in the trailer,) I went to Miami for Rolling Loud, I went to the Bay for Memorial Day Weekend, I hit Joe Moses‘ listening session and I went to Puerto Rico with Tory Lanez for the video shoot to his collab with Ozuna, “Pa Mi.”
Check out a couple pics below. I didn’t take any in the Bay or Miami, so…yeah.
Thanks to the amazing women at Ciroc and Combs Enterprises, I had the amazing opportunity to do interviews at the Ciroc Women’s Empowerment Brunch in LA! I got to interview my FAVE fitness guru Jillian Michaels, as well as many other amazing women in entertainment and tech.
More pics below!
Once again, these were cool moments that don’t merit their own post but are worth mentioning! Partied with the Taylor Gang boys for Ty‘s birthday, got to chop it up with Nas at the LA screening of Illmatic: Live From The Kennedy Center, hit up Post Malone and Rae Sremmurd‘s video shoot at Coachella (and had an awfully awkward video bomb as seen below), linked up with G-Eazy at the Stillhouse offices and had some dinner with a dear old friend – Joe Budden!
