FRIDAY FIYAH!

Sometimes, you just gotta wile out.  It’s just a plain reality of life.  This weekend’s about to be 80 degrees and gorgeous here in SF (it only goes about 70 about 5 times a year here so it’s really a cause for celebration!)  In an effort to kick off a kick ass weekend,  thought I’d leave you with some FRIDAY FIYAH a.k.a. a track that is makin’ me and Lola all like:

I haven’t stopped listening to this new track by Theophilus London feat A$AP Rocky in three days. Turn up the speakers and wait til the beat drops…you’ll see!

Speaking of fun musicians, did I ever tell you about how I met two awesome American artists while in Paris? Robert Glasper and Bilal! Miss AfroFly took me and my friends out to a club one evening, Djoon, for a party, which just happened to be one of the most fun club scenes I’ve ever been to. Just beautifully diverse with fantastic soul/funk/R&B. Anywho, I recognized this track playing:

I was struck because I had just seen Robert Glasper and Bilal playing in Oakland two weeks previously and hearing this song in Paris made me smile. Then I look beside me and see Bilal cruising through the crowd and I went up to him and was like…”uh, hey. I just saw you two weeks ago in Oakland.” I think the fact that I started speaking to him was clearly a surprise because he just smiled and gave me a hug and we snapped a pic:

Then I ended up figuring out he was there with Robert Glasper because they had just performed together (I imagine the same concert I had just seen) so when I ran into him, he was all “Oakland!? What the hell are you doing here!?” It was a fun surprise for us all!

Highly recommend you check their music out!

Hope you enjoyed! What are you getting into this weekend?? Happy Friday y’all!! :)
