Artist Recap of the Afro-punk 2010 Festival: THE RETURN OF THE FELINES

Took me some time to gather all the pics from last weekend's AFRO-PUNK 2010 festival in the Commodore Barry Park in Brooklyn. These photos can tell the story of the amazing two-day marathon of dope music, art & skateboard & bmx virtuosity better than words. As expected the event brought out New York's flyest people, the vibe was beautiful...the artists were really feeling this summer's energy,…

Afro-punk guys and white women, is it easier?

It’s only fair to the artificial humans that my official introduction into the blogosphere be right here on afropunk.com, and away from the dogmatic matrix that is mainstream media. After all, I represent both the alpha and the omega of consciousness that internally bleeds within the souls of alternative hip hoppers, ghetto nerds, neo soul cool cats, backpackers, hippies, skaters, poets, artist, punks, and black rock kids who simply want to dig their own private and social…
