Thursday night was great night for events. At Hiro Ballroom, BETs Rising Icons featuring The-Dream was the main event. As expected there was a phenomenal turnout and we had to make sure we got into this. Once we were in, we got our drinks and partied the night away. Even we didn’t stay the whole duration to see The-Dream perform, everything before was a blast and these pictures show it. Thanks Bloc Group (holla at me, Ill be your event photographer, I have great prices, lol)

Capturing Jeremih’s Visit To 106 and Park

Posted in About Me, On TV, Special Events with tags , , , on June 4, 2009 by jayev3ryday

Picture 3

On Monday, I headed down to the the BET offices to meet up with my homey, Low-Key, to chronicle the up an coming R&B sensation Jeremih. His single, Birthday Sex, is #1 damn there everywhere and he is set to make an appearance on BET’s 106 and Park to debut the video for it. He is still getting used to the spotlight and the glamor and being on 106 and Park is a big deal, especially since this is the first time a new-comer is given a chance to debut a their video LIVE. Pressure..Yes, but Jeremih kept it cool and went through the day successfully.

Harlem Heights Premiere

Posted in On TV with tags , on March 3, 2009 by jayev3ryday

Ok, So last night was the premiere of the first two episodes of BET’s Harlem Heights. This is basically the The Hills in the Hood supposedly. Everybody in Harlem, including myself tuned in to see what the hype was about, who they would know, what places in Harlem they would recognize and is this worth watching next week. I knew a couple of the girls from the supporting cast but that’s it.

My verdict… it gets 3 Harlem H’s out of 5, lol. This group consists of a group of 20 something year olds who are doing their thing trying to be successful while living in Harlem. I guess the only qualms I have with the show is that it seems too set up, the drama seems scripted as hell and the cast aren’t that interesting. It seemed a bit extra…But it’s still good to have Harlem in the spotlight, maybe I can get a photoshoot with them. The chick below is Brooke who was Kanye’s Ex..and she is the baddest of the group. Real Keri Hilson-ish.

You can get more pics, video and bios over at BET.com. Check out these photos of them at the premiere party last night at Apollo Theater…
