(Photos + Video) Electric Adventure Festival 2015 [Atlantic City, NJ]


No, this isn’t a post to show I hung out with [my fav] Ty Dolla $ign again. LOL! (Although yes, I hung out with Ty Dolla $ign again, and as always, it was a night to remember!)

As you know, I’ve been working my butt off for years to become the media personality I want to become, and of course the journey has only just begun. However, the fruits of my labor are starting to show off, and this night, Ty and I had a long conversation about how far we’ve come. He told me how proud of me he is and how he’s excited to be able to watch my career grow as I’ve watched his since we met almost 2 years ago, and we promised each other that nothing we did means anything if in a few years when we’re way bigger, we don’t sit down for a big interview.

After already feeling pumped from the convo we had, the guy in the second photo approached our VIP section and tapped me. I couldn’t really hear what he said but I heard “photo,” so I instinctively tugged Ty’s arm and told him that this guy wants a photo with him. The guy then shook his head no, and explained that he wanted a photo with ME, because he’s a fan of the podcast! That may seem like nothing to you, but it meant the WORLD to me, especially after the convo we’d just had. I was so excited, I tapped Ty and was like, “Dude, this is MY fan but you have to take this picture with us because this is major!” and so there’s where that photo was born.

The next day I told the story on Twitter, and someone replied, “You’re a star in the making, we’re just lucky enough to see the process.” How dope is that?
