Well I'll Be Damned! Ballet And Hip-Hop Does Go Together!! [Video]



Last night I got a complimentary ticket from the Purple Ribbon camp to come check out Big Boi’s theater debut.

The Atlanta Fox Theater was where one half of Outkast took to the stage to elevate hip-hop to the next level. I’m not even going to front, I went to this event expecting to hate it. I mean, I know pop culture tries to incorporate hip-hop into almost everything these days, but I just didn’t see how something as technical and elegant as ballet would mix with hard, edgy rap music. But the minute the curtain rose and the Outkast catalog took over, I’ll be dammed if I wasn’t staring at everyone in complete awe.

Now I don’t know too much about ballet dancing, so I am not going to begin to try and break down exactly what I took in visually. Thanks to my camera I won’t even have to go there. Just check it out for yourself.

I got to say that Janelle Monae stole the damn show. I mean Big Boi most certainly did his thing, and the dancers were great. But something about her awkward movements, and soulful voice just had me captivated.

All in all I got to give EVERYBODY their props. This is a show you got to check out for yourself. You got two more days to get your chance to see Antwan Patton, and the Purple Ribbon crew get their culture on. For ticket information click here.

Big Shout out to Tamiko for the hook up.

Talk to y’all lata,
