The Number 33

Let me tell you about something that happened today…

Screen Shot 2019-10-15 at 8.50.36 PM

Selfies and long posts are my least fav thing but… today is an exception.

Life has been very wild this past month. Running social for our HQ grand-opening, Barcelona, Cruise, Bahamas, Baltimore, Lewis Capaldi on Sunday, bank account on E…it’s like going 1,000mph with no brakes or cushions. (And I’m not complaining in the slightest, I LOVE IT, but it’s tolling)

It’s actually been.so.hard. (Have you ever felt like you were in a constant haze or fog?) I’ve been talking to God a lot lately just to try to clear my head. And it might sound weird, but the number 33 is special to me and every time I’m wondering what to do or need help, I’ll see the number 33 in the most random places.

And, today was crazy.

For the first time today, I rode the train into center city. (Okay… I know) But this was hard for me – I can talk to thousands of people every night but can’t even manage being in a train station?

(You can even ask my boss, last week I went into 30th street station to ride back to the radio station and I got all the way to the platform and literally turned back around and called a Lyft because I just.couldn’t.manage.)

Well today I felt spoken to in a way that I can’t really describe, other than the signs were SO clear. I mean, it was WEIRD y’all.

From the moment I got in my car to go to work on a new commute I’ve been timid of, (I’ve been like, dipping my toe in the water, but not actually getting in), to scanning around on radio stations and finding “K Love,” to hear them… the minute I realize it’s a Christian station… the jocks saying “maybe you just got in your car and feel lost,” to frantically realizing I needed gas and there being a whole herd of cars waiting and having a spot open right in front of me, to getting to the train station and the only parking spot left is spot #33, to running to the platform (having no idea what I’m doing) and trying to get the fare kiosk to work when one of the 3 people at this stop waiting came over to help me (apparently you pay when you get off) and after talking, this guy was a manager for SEPTA and was just taking the train but still wanted to help me, to stopping at CVS on the way home, needing content for tonight’s IG Live, and giving me the PERFECT items (you’ll see)… I mean these things seem small but it just goes on and on and I can only barely begin to describe it.

Idk what your relationship is with God and I’ve personally been on-and-off in my relationship with the big guy upstairs. But today proved to me that no matter what you’ve been through or what you’ve done or what you’re relationship is with Him, if any at all, He’s got you.

And, I was debating on posting this, but you guys today was just so real and so amazing I can’t help but share 🙌🏽

Blueface‘s “Thotiana” song has blown up, and with the addition of verses from both Cardi B and YG, the track is going to be here for a minute.

“Undrunk” – Fletcher x LA

Fletcher, a brand new, break-out artist just released her debut single “Undrunk” and it is taking over the airwaves!

She stopped by 96.5 TDY here in Philly and I was able to chat with her. Fletcher is such a real person, so cool and so down to earth, it was so pleasant hanging out with her and the Capitol Records fam!

Thank you so much for stopping by! 🙂

Dillon Francis x Alison Wonderland ‘Lost My Mind’ Tour in Philly

Alison Wonderland and Dillon Francis are two of my favorite EDM artists in existence… and seeing them both together was AMAZING.

I actually met Dillon two years ago at Firefly Music Festival and interviewed him in what looked like a FYRE Festival igloo. (Watch the interview here!)

What’s weird is that earlier this morning, when I was showering, I thought, “it would be so cool if a DJ remixed the ‘bust it down Thotiana’ song” …and then we get here and halfway through Alison’s set, she literally plays a Thotiana remix!!! Life = MADE.

BTW, Temple students know how to get down (like, seriously). I love you. Check out this video!

Met Two Friends in Philly!

I wanna start by saying… this was one of the most fun nights of my life… so far.

NOTO is one of the best and most luxurious clubs in Philadelphia. It was amazing even being there. One of my friends hooked us up with VIP while we were there and get this… one of the VIP tables got way too lit (falling everywhere and making a gigantic mess) and got thrown out and left their table… along with all of their alcohol… behind. (AMAZING!!!) So, of course, we couldn’t let it just go to waste.

The show itself was incredibly well done. The song selection, production, visuals, Matt’s mic work and also Eli squirting the crowd with a super soaker… it was absolutely WILD.

After the show, we got to meet Two Friends. It turns out, these guys are some of the nicest and most genuinely fun artists I’ve met in a long time. THANK YOU GUYS!

Check out more of the show in the “Philly” highlight on my Instagram!

Wyclef Jean, Jazzy Amra, Jeremy Torres & LA at South Philly High with VH1’s Save The Music

Got to spend the day at South Philly High w/ @965tdy today and it was SO much fun!

They were one of 4 schools chosen to receive a grant from VH1’s Save The Music initiative, literally reviving and bringing back music and the arts to our schools and youth (which I think is so freaking important ✊🏽💯). S/o to Toyota Music for caring and also hooking it up!

Got to meet and interview @wyclefjean (posting soon) and also meet some really cool artists on the quick come up, as well as some REALLY DOPE students here in Philadelphia.

I think my favorite part of the whole thing though was being able to do a lil improv with @jazzyamra & @jeremytorresmusic in the hallway while Wyclef was behind us teaching the students the secret to producing music. Music is a universal language connecting all of us, and I can’t even begin to describe how thankful I am to be a part of this industry

BTW, Happy World Radio Day!

(Also love how Jazzy Amra flipped things halfway through and almost started to interview me) 😂👏🏽👏🏽 *also dropping soon!*

For more, keep up on IG with me!

I Have The Best​ Dog Ever, Don’t @ Me

Okay… so it’s not really my dog, it’s my girlfriend, Sam’s dog, Jules.

This woof is literally the sweetest, cutest, bestest woof in the world. (Everyone says that about their dog, why is mine different?)

Because of the way she makes me feel. And no other dog can do that. (Same thing goes for your dog, no other pupper can make you feel the way your pupper makes you feel.)

Check out some pics:

She also just had her 7th birthday!

And here’s us before the Puppy Bowl (… aka Super Bowl Sunday)!

Hope your doggo is as good as ours is! 🙂
