My Day started out with a Bus Ride to Carrolton, avenue. wasn’t sure how the bus was going to run because the crowd was thick, I wanted to get off my Delgado Community College where the parade began. So when getting off the bus, there were humans in the masses.. I walked back down Esplanade to City Park Ave. on to the parade’s start at on Marconi Dr. next to Delgado Community College. where I Waited for 4 Hours for the parade to start and for Karr’s band to come.
Prior to waiting, I sat and ate a meal at Subway, Then walked back to the Route. I was there before all the bands. Talladega College Led the parade. I saw them come through. At that moment I saw the Talladega guys out on the streets they were asking for pics to be taken and all that good stuff. some of those people I Knew for YEARS and finally met. All love and No shade at all from the Talladega camp. Those cats are rocking it.
I saw McD 35, and met Robin the founder of our NOLAB (PHOTO OPP!)
I ended up staying at until Karr came so I could walk with them. at first I thought they had left me, I was ALMOST going to walk with McD35, but It was only hair that I walked with Karr. After getting all this good footage of Belaire HS and McMain HS at the beginning. I was ready to roll.
.. I walked the whole rout with Edna Karr’s band. The crowd was hectic so much going on, but the parade ended RIGHT! with Karr & Bellaire battling it out and ending the parade! it was awesome!. The parade ended I saw a few friends. we all split.
As I was on the way home, I spotted my Cousins at Bourbon & canal. This was after stopping at McDonalds only to spend 2$ on apple pies that should have only cost me 50 cents a pieces .. I spent nearly 5$ on a drink & two pies… Anyway I saw my Cousins at the Corridor of canal & Bourbon, My Cousin lance gave me one of his drinks. I also took a few pic of some of folks out there LOL!.
While Standing there, They were checkin out the girls and I was Lookin but that’s all….
We I ended up meeting this guy who came at me to shake my hand saying “Man, I know you but you don’t know me. I know what you do. I know your work you’re the man” .. He even told a friend he was with “Man, That dude is famous bruh”. I really appreciated the commentary LOL! I was responding like “Cool. Cool…” he basically was glad to meet me because he watches my YouTube page and that’s a good feeling to know when folks appreciate what it is you do.
I ended the night very tired yet I couldn’t really sleep I have so much to do today that I couldn’t have done yesterday hadn’t I gotten home at 5am LOL! anyway I’m still tired. my feet hurt and I have a party to do.
