15 minutes of fame small
The other day we attended a dope event called 15 Minutes of F.A.M.E. on behalf of Powerline Afx. The event was a success, showcasing a diverse lineup of artists from all over Florida, including Jacksonville: Cheech Forreign, B DeVine and Amanda Jay; Orlando: Kristen Warren & JOROK, Madd Illz and Nicey; St. Pete: Rival, Josh Cruz and Ari Chi; and Tampa: Bangarang, Jroc Jones and Samurai Shotgun (who will be performing at AfroPunk on October 3rd). The theme of the afternoon was F.A.M.E. – Fashion, Art, Music, & Entertainment – all presented in one day, under one roof! The event took place at The Orpheum up in Ybor City in Tampa, with Mighty Jai hosting and DJ Skeelow, DJ Spaceship, & DJ Qeys of Sinister 6 DJ’s manning the 1s-and-2s. Roberto Rivera of Animus directed the recap footage that you will see down below, highlighting the event’s best moments. In addition, there were a few Q&A sessions done with some of the artists on the bill, including B. DeVine, Amanda Jay, Nicey, Jroc Jones & Rival. Take a moment to watch the footage and interviews as well as some of the snapshots taken at the event featured down bottom thanks to Tampa Bay photographer OthelloC. If those aren’t enough for you, there are a few more photos that were taken by Kadeem Kodham and you can see those over here. Last but most definitely not least, let’s give a round of applause to emcee Dabron Kain for Raising The Glass Ceiling and quarterbacking this function. Catch the vibe:
