Sup Fam –
Me and the crew are back at home base after one WILD WEEKEND traveling around the East Coast to do some ‘reporting’ on what happened this year at Black Bike Week in Myrtle Beach, SC and at Memorial Day Miami on South Beach (Florida).
Numbers you ask?
Shot of Ocean Drive (Miami Beach, FL) w/Young Jeezy Conversating With The Crowd…
Well, the Miami Herald is reporting up to 400,000 people were on South Beach this weekend for the Urban Beach Events!
Wide shot of some of the crowd on Ocean Blvd (Myrtle Beach, SC) having a good time…
In Myrtle Beach, reports are estimating between 300,000 to 350,000 were attendance.
Like I said it was a fantastic turnout at both events! We took plenty of pictures and I will be adding them to the site soon.
First order of business was to get a gallery page made to showcase the pictures. I have it up but it needs a little TLC to make it look lovely.
Sidenote: There were so many beautiful women in Miami this year!
This event is brought to you by DuWe Entertainment. 6 artists are scheduled to perform including Chocolate Slim (from Washington DC).
Location: Highway 17 / 501 South @ Dreammakers
Time: 11am – 2pm
There will be an afterparty at the Convention Center.
Peep the flyer for more information and if you are interested in becoming a vendor or performing, please call Ms. Lea (843) 446-2625

The two-week festival—the largest Caribbean bash in North America —culminates in four massive events, at various venues, running from Thursday to the holiday Monday.
King & Queen Extravaganza
Contestants from the festival’s 16 mas bands don gigantic costumes—often measuring 20 feet in all directions—and dance for the chance to be named the festival’s official monarchy. Expect some mean boogeying—last year, a would-be king induced audience squeals by shaking his gold-painted bum. Steel drums accompanied by soca and calypso singers provide the melodies.
When: Aug. 3.
Where: Lamport Stadium, 1155 King St. W.
How much: $26–$31.
Steel orchestras from the Ontario Steelpan Association compete before a panel of judges. Players showcase their knack for the steel pan, while hammering out everything from calypso to crowd-pleasing jazz and pop songs.
When: Aug. 4.
Where: Lamport Stadium, 1155 King St. W.
How much: $20.
The parade’s 39th incarnation, packed with floats, bands, surreal costumes and thousands of dancing revellers, shimmies down Lake Shore from Exhibition Place to Parkside Drive.
When: Aug. 5.
Where: Lake Shore Blvd. W., between Exhibition Place and Parkside Dr.
How much: CNE grandstands $21; free along Lake Shore Blvd.
Arts & Cultural Festival
Olympic Island is ripe with family-friendly activities for the lazy post-parade day. A marketplace features Caribbean crafts, visual arts and cuisine; tots can make their own masquerade wear in the Children’s Village. Partied-out festival-goers can cap off the weekend by lounging in the sun against a musical backdrop: local and international artists play island sounds from reggae to creole to chutney.
When: Aug. 6 and 7.
Where: Olympic Island.
How much: $19.
