This past weekend was of course the BET Hip Hop weekend that has been held annually in Atlanta during the past few falls. Well D.Woods, formerly of Danity Kane is coming out with her official solo project and what better timing than to do a listening party preview than while all of young black Hollywood is in town anyway? Wise move.

The event was packed. One look at the crowd and you could see that she was surrounded by true friends and not just fly by night followers. Food, drinks, good company and most importantly dope music. The dancer and writer can actually sing and if anything i believe being in the confines of the popular all girls group that abruptly dismantled last year took away from that fact. She is able to shine better as a solo artist. She's got some fun tracks, love tracks, club bangers all thanks to great production and a convincing sound. She's not Beyonce. She's not Amerie. But does she have to be? D is confidently driving in her lane that makes many sharp turns but will bring her toward musical success. Plus she's so gracious it's hard not to luv her.

Look out for more news on D.Woods here in the coming weeks AND of course look out for her album, The Grey Area dropping December 8th. Yehaaaw right before my birthday! I'll let yall who haven't, hear a couple be the judge. Look out!

In the tradition of the BET Hip Hop Awards the Atlanta annual style suite helped to set the tone the night before the awards. This year's suite lounge was bigger and grander than last year. Because if you are going to do it again, you MUST do it better. Check out who came and what goodies were given. I got to indulge as well and above shared a couple new favorites that i fully plan to support. YAY! The above pics are people that i caught the hour that i spent there but there were other attendees of the goodie bag festivities like: Lil Duval, Sheree Whitfield, OJ Da Juice Man, Toccara, Tameka Cottle, Toya Carter, Eva Marcille, Lance Gross and more. And hello who doesn't like GOOD free stuff? The Garner Circle secured partnered w' some great vendors!
As you know there were SO many events going on during the weekend. Probably too many as to where they began to sabotage each other in a fight for crowd attendance! I also stopped by the Gentleman Jack Lounge at the Compound Friday evening that was supposed to be a luxory affair put on by Grand Hustle's Jason Geter and Bu (Konvict & Def Jam) however i didn't see them there (you know celebs show late & if it's not poppin' like they like, not at all) then it rained like crazy & to add to my dismay, the DJ only played down south music. HOWEVER the club is looking great & there was plenty of drink in the house if you like that strong dark know the kind that tends to get a PYT in trouble. But no worries i went home el-solo that night kids. I knew i had a busy Saturday ahead. I refused to let BET weekend take over my life as i did in years past. You just grow up and what is most important to you changes. As a whole, BET Hip Hop weekend in Atlanta was ok. I have a little feeling that in a couple more runs they will put the red light to the southern hip hop production of these awards. We'll see...

Thank you to the Garner Circle for the invite. Known for cating such clean events!
