There is a Hollywood of the South and it's Atlanta, Ga. On our second journey to "the A" we shot a video for upcoming rapper Relly Jade. We then caught up with established stylist Ashley Mac. She invited us to the Lacoste store opening at Atlanta's famous Lenox Mall. You could call the vibes a little yuppie for the crew, but we met some cool people. We worked more with Ashley Mac and hung out while she while she styled for Dreams Productions' most recent photoshoot.
We also stopped at the Hearts and Arts party at City of Ink, the site MMG's Wale "Tats on my Arm" video, to check out LP and Apollo Clothing's release. Hometown favorites Curtis Williams and some of the Two-9 collective showed up to support the local artists performing at the event.
Getting around downtown Atlanta was horrible to say the least, and then we found the source of much of the problem: the shooting of the new Fast & the Furious directly outside of our hotel. But it was cool seeing the production in action; the amount of personnel and infrastructure they had implanted into the city was astounding. Unfortunately, who knows the status of the film now. RIP to Paul Walker.
ATL: we'll see you again very soon
