[Pay-per-view it]. I’m about to pop a wheelie on the interstate; hesi-tate–never. We like the poster kids who are really gettin it. Techno team, let the Lego’s talk. My friends came to town–laughing because our dreams ain’t dreams no more! This is Dee & Ricky take over LateBoots week!

While the first was hosted by Vashtie Kola, this installment saw the Atlanta debut of NY Based twin accessory designers Dee & Ricky. –>Inside Story
1-900-Phifer. You. Are. Not. Ready. You need to blog before you ball–I take hustle creatine; and with all this influence you’ll forget your plan. Throw your hands–you know my name and the company that I own–self, and you smell my colonge–Burberry Weekend.

Wasn’t I a good blogger? Claim your seats! Me, Phifer has been gone for awhile now, but no need to explain–I felt like a reporter out on location–in the party; stagger as I walked–blame my two friends Moet & Rose. It was so difficult to be away–considering that I’m such a show off. I’ve been moving in silence, and just two weeks ago I think it was, my New York team #TeamEpiphany and Coltrane Curtis made an appearance in Atlanta to govern the Moet Rose Lounge with Keri Hilson at The Mansion on Peachtree. And in true Phifer Fashion, I was in.
Over fourty of Altanta’s progressive culture curartors were selected and attended DJ On Deck: A Cultural Session–featuring existique taste from The Sound Table and a musical traverse as Dj Dimples streamed the event with live spinning music! An archivist crowd of credible influencers enjoyed culinary appetizers from Sound Tables Executive Chef Breenan Keenan, infused with the spinning techniques and remixed sounds of Atlanta’s originator Dj Dimples in a fine dining atmosphere; combining influencers to drive creativity and connectivity.
Details: The event housed a clique of 30 to 40 hand-selected key players in the Atlanta Metropolitan area;–the duration of the event was from 7:00 P.M. until 10:00 P.M–view post to engage in the selected night where we heard customized beats, food, and tasted Heineken product!
The street family is so cool–I hold toast on both coast; Aware of Greedmont Park magazine invited me to the Atlanta Indie Fest 2011! Game is on lock–Phifer swallowed the keys, and I’m in a hurry. Aww, come on cheer up baby; you know I make you laugh. They couldn’t take me in a white G500 Wagon–that’s too much for them and cold like Ben & Jerry’s. With a festival reminiscing Coachella, and hosted by Greedmont Park, Cobra Corps and DJBooth.net, the 4th Annual Atlanta Indie Festival featured performances from Project Pat, J*Davey, GLC, Cyhi Da Prynce, Mach Five, FKi, The Canz, Jackie Chain, Rittz, Ethereal, Bobby Creekwater, and many others.

Live from Atlanta: Hello ladies and gentemen. It’s Friday afternoon, July 29th, 2011. As per I usually don’t say the date–but I’m feeling good from yesterday. In about 4 seconds Phifer is about to speak: Call your name two, three times in a row—ehh. Yall listening right. This is Luxury Blogging- rich & grandeur posts–and private dinner parties oppose to a ‘come all‘ party (looking like a dinner at Neverland in the Dynasty era).
The RX Club and Dean Marketing curated and executed Atlanta’s 30 Under 30 Dinner Party Presented By Heineken–“30/30” was an evening dining experience that brought together some of Atlanta’s youngest and most influential leaders in their respective industry–the dinner aimed to highlight and honor the thirty individuals under the age of thirty within the Atlanta Metropolitan area who were making their mark in various fields; held on the upper level of Straits restaurant (you know where I’m going with this)! Break out the green lights.
Some notable honorees included; Josh Powell of the Atlanta Hawks, Paris Kirk (A&R at DTP Records), Moses Davis (Marketing for Atlantic Records), Brian Patrick Davis (Concreteloop.com), Kodak Boi (Vibe Vixen), Nino Coreoleno (founder of FLI PELICAN), Joshua King of Fly Publicity, Nina Brown of Atlanta Alive, Nicole Garner of The Garner Circle, Fadia Kader, Matthew Verden, Jazzy McBee, Tahira Wright, Dalen Spratt, Josh Powell, Olori Swank, Renaldo Nehemiah, Aware from Greedmont Park and Miss Georgia ‘Kaylin Reque’!
Nothing draws a crowd like a crowd. Don’t let the funk pass you by. I don’t drive anymore, I’m just holding my i.d.–the passenger stallion. Young people are lost these days but the older ones dig me. They can’t clock my accent, I’m not attached to one city. It’s funny how Chardonnay can make our differences differ. We threw a party, yeah, we threw a party. People came over, yeah, we threw a party. Cheers to more than t-shirt time on Fridays nights. Wearing clothes is an overrated experience when you’re close to the beach. I’m just a girl, small bikinis are all I need on the ‘zero zero zero comma zero after zero’ quest to bring funds for my needs. We took the floor before the night was over. Not bad huh, for some southern kids? I may not have gone where I internded to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be. –>Inside Story
Atlanta is just such a casual city. Elegance meets sexy at Whiskey Park, a glamorous bar and lounge located on the 3rd floor of the W Hotel Midtown where guests go to see and be seen. Whiskey Park features three distinct rooms and an outdoor terrace. With dramatic, oversized chandeliers and a rich botanical atmosphere on its outdoor terrace, Whiskey Park fuses a touch of rock and roll with lots of glam and a dose of allure. Guests can lounge on plush couches in the Crystal Lounge or on comfortable bar stools in the Gallery Bar, as they enjoy specialty cocktails and small bites and tune-in to special guest DJ’s.
CIA-looking characters guard velvet ropes while a glam-tastic mirror angles above the bar giving drinkers a chance to scope talent without staring. We may be ambitious, fairytale dreaming, pretentious and unpretentious looking 20 somethings, but the clientele is an interesting mix–expense account-holding businessmen mingle among dolled-up girls hoping for a Marquis Phifer sighting. –>Inside Story
#Heineken and Kanye West presents Heineken Red Star Access Tour–a G.O.O.D. Music Summer Tour Series; one of the best traveling tours being governed by #Heineken as they present an intimate showcase to a invitation-only crowd, taking place in venues around the country featuring G.O.O.D. Music artist. The tour series kicked off June 9th in New York City with a free exclusive Kanye West performance.

The tour made it’s stop in Atlanta, and both Pusha T and CyHi Da Prynce gave the gang green crowd a show. Ofcourse, in true Phifer etiquette, my pictures, weird faces, and clean tailored look are now available for surfacing. Plus performance video as you get in! –>Inside Story
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life. Career word life, it means forever, and that’s a mighty long time. But I’m here to tell you, there’s something else, the Executive World–now what’s really amazing is how everything keeps blazing; turning nothing into something, thinking we local; we major. I guess I’m sort of a role model, School of Phifer Rocks; everyday is college. You know I’m being honest. I learned a new word out in LA: Executive. Just the other day @BrookeDevard and I were en route in the SUV to the BET Awards with Network Executives. The night before we were at the Chairmen of BET Debra Lee’s PRE Dinner, goodness gracious the guestlist. We, seated at table 35 were amongst LaLa & Carmelo Anthony. Erykah Badu actually gave me her phone number, Anita Baker and I had kodak moments, Too Short, Andre Harrell and Idris Elba were the perfect gentlemen.
All of Black Hollywood was present at this PRE Dinner, it was so snug you couldn’t get your publicist or your security in. Ask me how it feels to hear Executives know and say your name and I could give you no answer in words. I can say that I met the Chairmen Debra Lee, I mingled with stars in Lanvin, and I took away something far greater than status. It was promise. I stop trying to find an answer as to why, and just understood the how. I juggle college and a life that is aged far beyond my years. And I cringe at my prospective successes and the company of executives that I’m in. I’m a career lover, and I don’t sleep–a combination that will have you seated at any table.

Wearing Pride oppose to Prada–Los Angeles gave me those long big kisses. And the werk speaks for itself–I’m trying hard not to live through my past pictures–we are the Spirit of Competition; and we just think we’re better. I’m so Biggie over Pac anyday–try me and I will spit Notorious verses around you. I don’t know much about algebra but NY > LA. But when I got the invite to attend you might as well called me Ziplock; I put my looks in the bag and zipped my mouth up. I had the BET Awards to attend and a dinner, so with summer school draped around my mind, tipping around town with my friends prior was much needed. See, LA was cool, but the connected were even cooler.
With 72 hours in the sunny city I had to put my big boys fly with a scheduled itinerary on my side–just last week I was sitting next to LaLa and Carmelo; me and @BrookeDevard was BET poppin like a fish fry, and the streets was ours; turned the sidewalk into Cavalli furs. @UgoMozie and Kevin Stuckey came in piece to offer something for your soul. The airport, Four Seasons, and a Rodeo trip never hurt anybody. BET Awards Phifer Goes Hollywood Part 1 –>Inside Story
