(Photos + Video) BET Weekend 2016 [Los Angeles, CA]


I think this may have been my favorite LA trip of all time! Thank you to Luxi for housing us on the first night when our Air BnB wasn’t ready! On day two, we hit Kamaiyah, YG and Drake’s video shoot for “Why You Always Hatin?”. Later, we went to Problem and DJ Quik’s listening party for Rosecrans, then to eat with IAMSU!, and finished the night at Ty Dolla $ign’s studio for his session with Jahaan Sweet.

Day three, we stopped by RJ’s video shoot for one of his O.M.M.I.O. 3 cuts, hit the beach in Santa Monica and finished up at Snoop’s listening session for his new album. Loved getting to see him and meet Warren G!

Day four, we headed over to Epic Fest, where I ran into MGK, French Montana, Kelly Rowland, Andre 3000 and my Jersey homies, Dougie F and T-Dot! It was awesome being with Mike Zombie when Khaled performed the song he produced, “They Don’t Love U No More”! Check the video below. We ended the night at the Interscope party, with RJ, Kamaiyah, MGK, Dreezy, Rae Sremmurd, Mike WiLL Made It and YG!

Day five and I don’t know how we kept going! We linked up with my Bay homie Ezale and later Kool John, then ended the night at Ace of Diamonds with my girl DJ Carisma. Finally, day 6, we made it a very Jersey day with Kazzie, Fetty Wap and Monty at Le Parc, then hit Crustacean one time before heading back East!
