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

For years men have had the chance to run the world; dressed in a double breasted blazer–white tee and my NaVier Purus Pin (purchase the Purus Pin here)– I call this style Wardrobe Instincts; we’re on that Devil Wears Prada come up. Or call it the Carrie Bradshaw theory. Anyway, R.S.V.P. Yes to celebrity stylist Reno Valentine (far right) linking up with the kid Phifer for Black Beluga moments at the W Hotel 5.27. Valentine has styled national commercials running on MTV, BET, VH1 and CBS. Look out for a collaboration between he and I.
Yall not bout that Diana Ross lifestyle! Lol. Stay pivotal and salient people–it’s the prerequisite to your revolution! I love you all.

I’m bringing Sexy Back–I’ve been lifting weights;Stone Cold Steve Austin (I’ve always wanted to say that @MarquisPhifer I just at’ed myself–I’ve always wanted to do that). Next I might walk into the W Hotel with no shoes on; we’re passed the double cheek kisses; going straight for the lips. May I? Look, tell me your dreams and aspirations; what’s your future plans what’s your motivations. They say chivalry is dead; then why is (present tense because I’m the present) everyBody at my hosted gig (whispers: the choice is yours). I want to give a handsome applaud to Wil May & Jarrod Levine who manages my Bright Lights Bigger City moments. Thank you.
+ Prince Charles of NaVier co-authored the night along with Dj DIBIASE–one of the best music composers on the scene–anywhere! Sick. I’m having lunch with him soon; he has great taste. When you think of my friends & I–Black Beluga caviar should pop into your head. Sitting at the table high powered couple style–with my fathers features. –>Inside Story
Pull yo Benz out and just swerve on them–you bought it. Ok, my last name isn’t Banks but I still asked daddy for $500–and it wasn’t for a hat. Come go with me; I make you feel good–and first things first, we are boutique resturant hoppers–4 to a car. I promise you we are not rich kids, but let’s have humble pie for starters? Dressed like a true man of etiquette, we rolled in at Parks Edge restaurant around 2:40 and were seated on the patio (the owner is a Morehouse College alum). In the beginning, we ordered their infamous bottomless mimosas (in case you were wondering, getting ****y at brunch is the most classy thing to do).I ordered the veggie omelette and the rest is a canvas of carbs and powder dusted fruit. Our entrées were preceded by biscuits and delicious fruity jam. The portions were huge and we finished about 4 of our carafe of mimosas, they were actually closing as we were sipping but the staff in no way urged us out. Parks Edge has so much sexiness. –>Inside Story
Re: Young Boss. Phifer, why you don’t smile? Child Please, your attraction to me is strickly fashion; I feel like a pretty doll in a money shaped box–just another toy I am not. (Gas prices are up) and so are my poked out lips (if your propspective is aligned with my objective let’s talk). Sincere I speak, (Boys Run The World) don’t even try to touch this, cause they talk how I lounge with fine Girls–a long line of family and friends. I’m just playing–I just ask for you to clap for Wil May, another great event was attented at the W Hotel (Whiskey Park).+ My photo with artist Reese and toast to all of the boys who are taking over the World. And to the college grads. –>Inside Story
Following a High Falutin, and being apart of the Cool Society, we went to Atlanta’s newest lounge Aurum –to stretch out our dressed up muscles. We had corner seating by the door; the perfect strategic position for both people watching and a painless exit. Dance dance dance! It was so much dramatic disco heat, and we was dancin. Looking like an Egyptian bedroom during the reign of the Pharaohs, housing antique beats and everything was gold. The New York correspondent Sham Shirley, made a surprise land in Atlanta last week: Dearly beloved, we were gathered here today to celebrate–Aurum Lounge, it was gaudy, it was oversized. For starters, the place is decidedly cool, and the crowd seemed surprisingly apt with a sense of style.
At Aurum; Atlanta’s new lounge and speakeasy endowed with amazing decor, friendly service, and blissful ambiance. With posh seating, specialty cocktails, and light bites, Aurum has quickly become the premiere spot for Atlanta’s most discerning sophisticates–fancy, schmancy!
I just found a new place for you to party. Chow, for now.

We thought it was time for a change–see, we can give the opposite of Boujee too–we dance in the basement–who? Step-step-step-with an intense schedule of rigirous college courses, formed study groups that are less than steller, and pop quizzes that excite us as much as a sale at Marshalls–it’s a must to waste your worries away on Any Given Wednesday. Hands down, MJQ is the chillest, coolest spot in Atlanta, and if you’re looking for a great place to hang out and listen to good music-this is it! It’s hard to find, but it’s well worth it.
MJQ is a cool subterranean nightclub bar for those in the know, located in an old parking garage, it’s a basement room with a centre piece bar focussed on dancing; a second smaller room with deep red walls and soft couches devoted to lounging. Cartoon murals of MJQ regulars add to the down-home local feel, and music runs from house to hip hop and reggae to drum n bass and the wall space is often used for art exhibitions. Welcome to Atlanta’s Best Whole In The Wall.
If you’re 21+ come here, I got something for your mind. The destination? The New York atSuperfun party of course. You know, your girl’s favorite party. It was a rainy night so my hair laid straight back coupled with thick collars to block the wind. The theme for the night was ‘downtown girls.’ And I was down but a ‘going uptown’ girl that could use a sexy situation– Sebastian took the night off. But let me drop some facts. Take an educated guess on how a night could go with murals of Roman warriors adorning the walls and sex- red everywhere to match my nails…I wanted to feel the beat of the Romans yet my request for grapes fell through; the bottle service though came out on time, as did the crowd. With capacity at 80, we kept it real OG, I mean lowkey. You know, just like I love it.
You can Spot me everywhere–I am Dalmatian named Summer; I’ll get to it later cause I’m playing with my Spring dreams–they come to life like Jumanji (the sound of tribal drums is heard as Phifer rides away). Me slowing down is not an option, the instructions say things will return to normal once I’m done, so they continue. A few days ago Friday my small circle and I hit up the W Hotel–no invite sent I took the weekend off. I am connected so I linked up with my boys Jarrod Levine and Wil May–and if Kim was an option I’d be a Kardashian–I just made a power move so until then I’ll play possum with a smile on my face, and bring you cheer and save you from the blues. Behind the ropes you’ll find Marquis Phifer & Co. no Tiffany–who me not you oh yes who’s she?+ Another Friday celebrated at the W Hotel Whiskey Park with my Calvin Klein sliver blazer on (I’m chillin chillin chillin I’m just chillin chillin).
