Rock Creek Social Club Presents: Love Don’t Cost a Thing


It’s Valentine’s Day, and if you’re single, “involved” or whatever you want to call it, you’re ass needs to be at Recess in DC tonight. The faction that is Rock Creek Social Club is riding pretty high since Good Life won a Fab Award for DC’s Party of the Year, so a celebration of the most obnoxious fashion is in order.

This is the only party where you’ll hear Drake’s “Cameras” or ScHoolboy Q’s and A$AP Rocky’s riot-inciting “Hands On The Wheel,” so if that’s your avenue, you need to be there. Ladies, whether you have a dude or not, you need to be in attendance. Gentlemen, whether you’re on the prowl or just want eye candy, this is the place for you too.

The Male Experience At Howard’s Homecoming


It’s damn near October, which means it’s Homecoming season, and my alma mater is as famous for its Homecoming as it is for its academic merits. The homie Angry Stan dropped this guest blog over at The Gray Way. Pretty much sums everything up….and I think that’s one of my pictures. I’ve taken so many over the years that I don’t remember…..

Leggings Are a God Send: Women will grace the annual “Yardfest”—an outstretched Friday concert that’s notoriously showcased arriving Hip Hop & R&B talents, while fusing in more old school soul acts and international stars of late—with these on. They’re so endearing to men that the autumn and winter chill has become something to look forward to for “Legging Season.” This article of clothing accentuates the lower body and put’s the camel toe on full display. Just stop—If on Howard University’s main quad, or just walking through breezy city streets. Stop and observe the ravenous look that overcomes men as voluptuous, legging-clad women walk by. The box protrudes out, resembling ripe fruit ready to be picked and, *Drools*… excuse me, my imagination runs wild. Let’s just say they provide quite the exhibit. Word of warning to the ladies, though: Not all women are worthy of this magical fabric. I highly recommend women shaped like Cool Ranch Dorito bags leave their leggings in the closet.

So. Many. Choices.: In undergrad, I didn’t realize how fortunate I was to be surrounded by so many shades of the beautiful Black woman. I guess you can say, I took it for granted. College places thousands of women in one concentrated area. We studied with them, shared dorms with them, and we partied with them. We’ll never get that experience back. When I return to my school’s homecoming, I tell myself, “these young niggas don’t know how good they got it…”

Big K.R.I.T at U Street Music Hall


On Easter Sunday, Big K.R.I.T headlined The Indie Life: Concert Series show at U Street Music Hall. Accompanied by Smoke DZA and Freddie Gibbs, K.R.I.T brought all of the dirty, sweaty, southern energy that you would expect from a hip-hop concert that capped off Holy Week. This shit was a circus before I even got inside of the concert, as I faced a line wrapped around the block when I showed up to the venue. Annoyed with the fact that the door was being held, and the fact that there was nobody inside, I opted to fall back and let the line to die down. I knew K.R.I.T wasn’t going to hit the stage until midnight anyway, so why rush?

Kendrick Lamar x Melon Auditorium


My apologies on being almost four weeks late with this, but that’s how life goes sometimes. On April Fools Day, Kendrick Lamar preformed as part of this free Gentlemen Jack sponsored Art Showcase. It was held at the Melon Auditorium in DC, and I’ll admit that I got to the venue way too early. This was a first, as I’m notorious for showing up late in the 4th quarter for events. The event was supposed to end at 12-they didn’t wanna give out free drinks for too long-and Kendrick didn’t hit the stage until around 11, so I definitely could’ve showed up when I usually do. While I was waiting around, I did get to see some good art and a ton of other random acts of fuckery. Black people love to do the Electric Slide to “Before I Let Go”, in case you didn’t know. I love it though, it reminds me of my undergrad days. People were having a good time, but it was clear they were getting restless. Apparently, playing “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is one of the best ways to deal with that. By the time Kendrick took the stage, I realized how much the event-and the night-represented DC. I saw everyone I figured I’d see, yet hadn’t discussed the event with. No matter where you go or what “scene” you’re a part of, you’re gonna see the same people. I’m not saying I have a problem with that, but that’s just how it is.
