So I’m leaving for the wedding in seven minutes, and I totally had delusions of managing to post something coherent before I left, complete with photos and a video. Silly, silly me. For now, all I can do is offer a teaser for the post I was working on, one of those 8-things-you-know-about-me tags. So here’s a totally random fact and a farewell for the next couple of days.
I love Kid N’ Play. I’ve seen all of Kid N’ Play’s movies. House Party was my favorite movie, at one time in my life. When I was like, thirteen, they came to Trinidad and hosted the premiere of House Party 3 at a theater that was then called Deluxe (which is now internationally infamous nightclub Zen — I can’t believe Akon gave it a shout out in that apology song). I remember looking down on that giant high top fade from the balcony. Of course, I was too shy to push my way through the crowd and try to meet them. Good grief, this is so dorky I can’t believe I’m even writing it.
Now Kid is and makes intelligent appearances on Bill Maher’s show. And Play is teaching hip hop history at North Carolina Central University. Interesting and random and a great note to say adios on. Here’s my favorite Kid N Play video ever. I miss when hip hop was this silly and innocent.
And I’m out! Catch y’all next Wednesday!
