Chilli supports Senator Kasim Reed & gets a little "tender luvin" on the side...

Senator Kasim Reed, Chilli, Charles Mathis (entertainment lawyer), Will Packer (director/producer)
Chilli speaking
Floyd Mayweather & Chilli (mmmhmmm...)
New hot pop group 3D and Floyd Mayweather
Grand Hustle's, Jason Geter & girlfriend
Tionna Smalls (co-host on Chilli's new reality love show)
Two FAB ladies: My friend Denise & Ebony Steele (NOT a porn star name so stop!) of The Rickey Smiley Morning show.
Chef Michael Noble of Grandmaz House
Event Mansion of Charles Mathis (the pic is a little crooked i know...i only had 2 glasses of champagne so idk...)

Senator Kasim Reed, Mayoral candidate, was thrown a classy event via "Chilli" Rozanda Thomas last night at the Atlanta mansion of entertainment attorney Charles Mathis. The former high school mates reflected on growing up as kids as well as keeping connected & still supporting each other into their successful careers. Top reality tv show contenders, VH1 was in the house taping the event including it as part of the singer's new dating/love show.

Q Parker and Cri$tyle performed "Tomorrow" duet (Tevin Campbell). It was beautiful & fitting for the event. Chef Michael Noble of "Grandmaz House" (perfect name with his southern style catering) filled everyone up on Hennessy chicken BBQ kabobs & Macaroni cup cakes (YUM!), and the entire crowd watched as Floyd Mayweather, who flew in from Vegas just for his "home-girl", and Chilli hugged and spoke endlessy throughout the night. Oooh weee! Do the other suitors in her new reality show even have a chance?! We will see. I'm not sure if Floyd being there and acting extra lovey toward our hostess of the evening was a TV move OR sincere. It looked real to me. He was very comfortable & it's obvious that the two are indeed great friends if nothing else. I enjoyed their candor. But if they are to get together Floyd would have to step it. He's known to be a bit of a playboy and Chilli isn't having any of that. She's mature and knows what she wants. And i'm about done with everyone saying they wish she would re-unie with Usher post Tameka. Just because they used to date doesn't mean it's the best idea NOW. Plus you see her right? ANY man has to come with his "A" game. Your girl is BAAAAD! Oww owww.

Thanks to Enchanted PR for the invite. Great event & wonderful networking.

3D & Twins, 2Cute. Event sponsor, Red Bull & Chik Fila
Showing them dance skills
What what?!

3D, Roy & Christal!

Boxing champ (yup he's still boxing!) Roy Jones Jr. has a gift. The gift is a 3 for 1 deal in the form of the multi-talented pop group 3D who are going to lure young people everywhere with their vocals, dancing and acting chops! If you can have 3D movies then surely you can enjoy 3D music so these Florida natives are spreading their southern love to Atlanta, their home away from home!

I attended the anticipated album listening party last night for 3D sponsored by fan favorites, Chik Fila and Red Bull along with a packed house of industry taste makers, friends, family (their mom & manager was also in attendance) and supporters of Roy Jones and his project. I drove through the ATL rain to attend and i was not disappointed! 3D is a new group bringing pop & hip hop to the high energy level that makes the kids dance in the streets (& quite a few adults too!).

The guys (twins, sons of Roy Jones and their cousin, the lead and singer of the group) through Royal Records are looking at November for their album release to unleash their talent world wide. The kids totally took over the crowd introducing each song before it played AND also performing each song full out as if it were a small concert. Loved the heart! See that's why adults are lame album parties are full of head bobbing and less excitement while everyone is trying hard to keep their "cool" on display. Not these kids! Their cool was their fiery electricity. With songs like "Body Rock" and "Melody" it's hard not to get moving. On top of their upcoming album they also have been shooting for their "come-up" type reality show, allowing you to get to know the guys and are also shooting for a network comedy. They made a point to let me know that their music is clean and that sets them apart. Since they clearly have so much talent, when i asked them about any of them having a future in boxing, i got a hearty triplet response of "NO!". They said they work out and keep in shape and spar in the ring with their mentor Roy but don't have any plans on taking it up as a career. These boys are fun yet very mature in the way they communicate! Impressive.

Talking to Roy was a joy to talk to and too much fun. Not only did he have me in stitches, he had the entire crowd rolling. He did share with me personally that he is STILL boxing and "beating up people who don't listen". LOL! He had a match 2 months ago, has one December 2nd in Australia and just signed papers for another next year February. While Roy loves the entertainment industry and takes his position seriously as a role model that teaches the boys to stay out of the streets, choose the right path from jump & learn from his experiences, he still lives for the sports world over music any day. I guess "beating people up" is where his treasure lies. And since this man is a former champ i say go forth...he's proved he's good at it! This man has a gift for building champs inside and outside the ring! Much success to Mr.Jones and the energetic 3D!

Thanks to Christal Jordan of Enchanted PR for the personal invite. This woman works hard taking care of her clients. Phenominal!

Above is some video i shot of 3D in performance mode at their party. Hear sample music,see the moves & a surprise! (studio was a bit dark)

Music to get ADDICTED to: "Addicted to Money" Lil Scrappy, featuring Ludacris

Lil Scrappy feat. Ludacris- "Addicted to Money" movie music video

Follow-up to the teaser trailer last week here is the official video, "Addicted to Money" or "ATM" by DTP rap super star Lil Scrappy featuring Ludacris. Both play crooked cops in this mini movie. I must say it's hot. Tight production. Plus anythin with "Addicted" in the title is a winner with me! Watch the video above & if you dig it, download it. Look for Scrappy's software album The Grustle slated for a December 2009 release.

But if want Scrappy NOW you get his mixtape "The Shape Up" hosted by Don Cannon, DJ Infamous & Tee the Barber, available online.

Thanks to the always hard working Tahira Wright of Branded PR for the update links.

Drink up!

I love Cognac. Did i ever tell you that? No? Oops guess i failed to mention. Don't want to come off as the writing lush. But since we are going to talk about drinks, let's go there. I LOVE cognac! I can mix it with coke, juice, oooh and don't let it be vanilla cognac...boooy stop. It's a wrap. I'm good for the night. Well in a world where vodka often rules, it looks like i'm not the only one with an appreciation for that fine "brown liquor". Popular rapper, movie star, philanthropist and business owner, Ludacris is growing in his celebrity and continuing to expand into more intellectual pursuits. One of the artists latest business moves is as the face of a new Cognac, Conjure. He even went to France to test the waters and assure the product he was attaching his name to was the best of the best. And what a great time to begin to unveil Conjure but at his annual LudaDay Weekend. LudaDay Weekend starting on a Thursday (if you are in entertainment you know all weekends start on Thursday anyway) opened up to an exclusive and PRIVATE luxory gifting suite in his famed ATL restaurant, Straits. Straits is a wonderful development in midtown offering a casual or even a more fine dining experience boasting multi-levels and private rooms.

The gifting suite held in the basement of Straits, offered manicures, massages, tailoring, tasting sponsor Peroni Italian beer (very light), video gaming, gifts and more! Great experience. Luda was joined by several friends and celebrity guests who also joined him upstairs for an exclusive (closed off) dinner. I was upstairs for a while to capture some of the dinner. It was all quite lovely. Afterwards Luda and DTP took it to club Opera to host their party. And you know it was jumping right?!

I really respect how Ludacris is setting himself up to be quite the all around entertainer. He is a young mogul in the making, branding himself but only in the wisest of directions (wonder who his lawyer and business manager is?). Love that. But i expect nothing less from a Virgo...they sure know how to keep that paper coming!

Ludaday Weekend is set aside every year for parties and events centering Luda Chris Bridges. This year he even gave away 20 Nissan cars to people in need, having them write an essay on why they should win a new vehicle. Follow Ludacris & LudaDayWeekend on Twitter to find out more about the other events going on this weekend such as: DJ Appreciation party & hosting a party at club Primal (today), tomorrow's party at Uptown Lounge w' blogger Necole Bitchie (also part of her 3 city birthday party series) & more. I'll be out of town for Labor Day so the other LudaDay Weekend events will miss me, due to my own pre-planned fun on the sun trip. I'm going to the beach babbbby! Wherever you are going to be this weekend, enjoy your holiday darlings. Be safe!

Special thanks to The Garner Circle PR & Branded PR for the event set up & invite.
