That’s right! 20,000 (20 times 1000) fans and lovers came through tonight at the Prospect Park Bandshell in Brooklyn for my homegirl Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings! Setting some sort of record for Celebrate Brooklyn, I think. It was probably the best live music performance I’ve ever experienced – simply extraordinary and beyond awesome. Post-awesome.
Great day Saturday. I finally finished my novel, then saw Sharon Jones and met up with old friends. Way past mid-night now, time for bed. But this will probably be the last non-vegan, non-revolutionary, shall we say ‘secular’ post on this blog for while.

Word, son! This is exactly what I’m talking about. I’ve been checking out VeganHood TV on Youtube for the past couple weeks. They are excellent. Black vegan men in Brooklyn. Showcasing the realness and teaching the family. These are the sort of cats I’ve got to collabo with once I move to BK later this year. They should win awards based on their theme song alone, I love it. When I hear those lyrics my fist is up and my head is bopping. It’s so simple and nice and the beat suggests urgency. Live and direct. Call me mad corny but this is what’s up. So I’m highlighting their work here today, supporting more productive black vegans in the family. I see you! Keep repping the cause.
Black vegan straight-edge vigor forever. Black vegans ain’t going nowhere.
Watch it all right here (what they have up so far, a work in progress):

Also, a revolutionary brother named Safari-Black related to this endeavor posting earlier about the Vegan Hip-Hop Movement:
Vegan and hip-hop are two of my main ingredients in terms of how I’d have to be defined. Vegan Hip-Hop movement? I’m ’bout that.
