Ok, so I went to the NCAA â€œBig Danceâ€ event on Saturday to watch Ludacris and Johnta Austin perform. But, unfortunately I missed Luda setting the stage on fire (I mean that figuratively of course) due to my inability to maneuver around all the damn people.
From what I heard from SOHH SOULFUL who flew into town over the weekend to do some work with DTP/ Def Jam recording artist
Bobby Valentino, Hey Bobby, Oscar Winner Forrest Whitaker dropped by to watch Ludacris do his thing and of course everybody went ape shit. My girl Amina who was also visiting from Jersey expressed to me how amazed she was by the locals love for Luda.
When my black ass finally got there, Johnta Austin had just hit the stage. After putting the smack down on one particular security guard for giving me a hard time with my media credentials I got to the stage just in time to get some video footage.
In case you all donâ€™t know, Johnta is from Southwest Atlanta. Heâ€™s written super hits for artists like Aaliyah, Mary J Blige, Mariah Carey, Tyrese, Chris Brown, and countless others. So though I had missed Ludacris, I felt that Johnta was a nice consolation prize, but boy was I wrong.
