For the first time, I was finally able to attend Amber Rose’s Slut Walk. It was SO empowering to be a part of something where so many people from so many walks of life come together for ONE cause – equality. We had such a great time with Amber and her family, and I ran into my boo Kehlani too! Also, a SUPER DOPE artist by the name of Toni Romiti performed and I’d never heard of her prior to this but I’m a HUGE fan now. She’s SO ill!

Our podcast had a live show at SXSW this year, so I went down a few days early to catch some shows and have some fun! I had the pleasure of seeing Atlantic artist PJ perform a few times as well as NEF The Pharaoh, Tdot iLLdude, Mike Zombie and Chill Moody.

Thank you to Annie at Mass Appeal for taking care of me at the Mass Appeal BBQ (featuring Nas, Dave East, Mannie Fresh, Cipha Sounds, Yo Gotti and many more) and the Mass Appeal Brunch! Shout to Chuck Creekmur, DJ Carisma, DJ Damage, IAMSU!, P-Lo, Kehlani, Kamaiyah, Nineteen85 and everyone else I saw/met/got drunk with, LOL. So glad I got to see the Illmore in its last year! And the FADER Fort was dope too.

Though I originally flew out to Toronto for All Star Weekend, I ended up in Los Angeles hours later to do Grammy weekend instead. I just couldn’t handle the cold!

It was such an amazing trip, from covering Power 106′s Valentine’s concert (featuring The Weeknd, Kehlani, French Montana, Kid Ink, Tory Lanez and more,) to French’s Grammy dinner, Kehlani’s Grammy party, Kendrick Lamar’s Grammy party, various events with Mike Zombie and Rosenberg – a dope trip all around!
