I am a fan of both good hip-hop and good photography. Hip-Hop heads have a lot to learn from D-Nice… And much respect due to Chip Fu! (c) D-Nice Photography
Among other things, I saw the Roots and Erykah Badu last week when I was in Seattle. I’ve seen the Roots many times and will keep coming back for more. They have a TUBA on stage for f*!#’s sake! Please forgive my crappy little photos, but it’s the best I could do being so far back from stage. Not the same as being right up in the front row at the knitting factory and getting sweated on.
Wednesday and Thursday night after work I took pictures of the Color Heritage folks and a new Reggae artist.
Friday night I shot a birthday party for Meleni Smith who is a recording artist. Coincidentally, Kevin Powell was also having a party at the club because he’s running for Congress. Like me, you may remember him as the journalist, hip-hop activist and former MTV Real World cast member from the first season.
