#Memories Circle of Sisters 2016

I had so much fun with my WBLS, Hot 97, and WLIB family taking over NYC’s Jacob Javitz Center for Circle of Sisters 2016. The yearly black women’s empowerment event attracts thousands for two, jam-packed, days of panels, performances, celebrity sightings, interviews, and an indoor flea market vibe packed with countless booths selling products appealing to today’s black woman. Not only did I get to sell my novel “The Man Curse” in the special “Meet Your DJ” Booth (Heyyy! :=). I also shared the stage with Common in an intimate one-on-one about his album “Black America Again” with a surprise visit on-stage by The Rev. Al Sharpton. CHECK THE INTERVIEW HERE: Common talks the 13th Documentary and has message for Black Youth.

Besides that? Tons of pics taken with my co-workers, fans, a few celebrities, and just pure fun. Check the pics below!

Had so much FUN all Memorial Day weekend cracking the mic during the 107.5 WBLS Mixmaster’s Weekend. Saturday – Monday I rocked to the turntable scratches of everyone from DJ Red Alert, Marley Marl, and DJ Enuff, to up and comers like DJ Jon Quick & DJ Ran. Plus I got to hold down my old Wake Up Club Family from 98.7 Kiss FM Jeff Foxx & Shaila! #Fun
