Busy weekend in Rebel land! The Core DJ's Retreat hit Atlanta this weekend, your truly is down with the Core so I hit up Justin's Saturday to hear what Cassie had to say, then Sunday I headed to Club Dreamz to see Blackstreet and Guy reunite.
I met up with my homie DJ WallySparks outta Chattanooga, TN and Sirius/XM Shade 45's Angela Yee to see what Cassie had to say. Justin's was pretty much packed to capacity with DJ's wanting to meet Cassie and Diddy -- who definitely showed up to support his number one girl.
Diddy and Cassie thanked all the Core DJ's in attendance for their support and took the time to take pictures with EVERYONE. I got a good look at Cassie's haircut too. Check it out below:
The haircut is growing on me. It's lookin very Native American inspired to me now. And I like that. During the event Core's DJ Quote kept Cassie's "Might Be Love" and Diddy's new joint "Diddy Bop" in constant rotation. Diddy tried to get the DJ's hype for Last Train to Paris which is due out September 22 I believe. Are you trying to board that train is my question?
I'll have video from Cassie very soon. I filmed footage of Angela interviewing Cassie for both of us so look forward to hearing Cassie speak on her new haircut (no special reason, just been thinking of doing for awhile) and her new music (working on it, no dates yet!).
After 9 years apart, Teddy Riley is reuniting both of his famed groups, Blackstreet and Guy for new projects. He made the announcement Saturday at the Core Retreat being hosted by Atlanta's Downtown W Hotel. I headed over to Club Dreamz to see them perform. I heard more than a few rumbles that the reunion may be shortlived and that there was infighting amongst the group over the weekend -- rumbles Teddy Riley must've heard too, because he addressed the "some people didn't believe this moment would happen" when the groups finally hit the stage (after a FOUR + hour wait). Here's a quick snippet of "Before I Let You Go (Kiss Goodnight)".
You guys didn't seem excited at all when I told you BBD was working on a new album, can I get some enthusiasm about Guy and Blackstreet, or are y'all too young to remember them too?
