AFROPUNK Atlanta 2019. Yowza.

I’m not even exaggerating when I say that this was by far the best AFROPUNK I’ve ever been too. Atlanta clowned. The people were BEAUTIFUL. Everyone. Not just some folks, but all. Vibes everywhere. I’m honestly still on cloud 9. I’m so in awe of how AFROPUNK leveled alllllll the way the fuck up this year. So many sponsorships and cool interactive art installations. The overall scale was just grander. It was beautiful.

Now for the tunes:

Lucky Daye. Anderson Paak. Smino. Masego. Mahalia. Brittany Howard. Fever 333.

Lucky Daye has been one of my favorites for a while and this was my first time seeing him in concert. His live show is amazing. I would have been satisfied if I went home after his set. But then I get to see Smino, a fellow STLien. And end the night with Anderson Paak who did a tribute to Mac Miller. Shawty is mad content. I am shawty.

I’m excited for how AFROPUNK Atlanta is evolving. If you were at the festival, drop me a comment! What was your favorite experience at AFROPUNK this year?

Peace,

Afropunk Atlanta this year…wowzers. First of all, let me just say that my first Afropunk Atlanta was last year. I went both days and the experience was amazing. The lineup, the people, the vibes…all good.

Fast forward to this year. Me and my sis, Jai, only attended on Saturday and I think thats where I got myself fucked up. Saturday was the “punk” in Afropunk and my ass was not ready. Based on the lineup, I probably should have went Sunday instead. My bad. Moral of the story is, check the lineup and then do your research. If you’re going to make the committment to attend a festival, you gotta know what you’re getting yourself into. For me, it’s all about the vibes. So next time, I’m only going if I really fuck with the artists.

Still met some cool people, including a fella that I dubbed “Hood Superman” due to his extra floor length red spraypainted durag which I enjoyed very much. Another chick that sold me her cool handmade KROONZ hat. Reminded me somewhat of the Nigerian hat that I was wearing. So I showed love, which sometimes directly equates to giving dem dollas. How else can we grow, right? Also, this other chick asked if we could take a picture together because she liked my style and felt like I was her in another universe or time. I told her that she sounded like Kanye. No shade. It was just true, lol.

Did any of you all attend Afropunk Atlanta this year? What were your thoughts?
