This July the city of Atlanta and the King Plow Arts Compound welcomed One Music Fest. Aside from the headlining performances of De La Soul, Goapele and Common, OMF showcased several local paint and music artists including Fabian, Fa’hamu, Nate Walka, Joi and The MADD Violinist.
Despite the mid day rain showers, the crowd hung in tight and partied until dark with Common closing the show in style with a classic “word from the crowd” freestyle.
Guest appearances included:
Shout out to J Carter and Joey Digital, major contributors of the OMF festivities and FAMU alum.
Check out this video of Common performing in Philadelphia promoting his new movie.
Interview with Derek Dudley, manager for rapper/actor Common, and HBCU Alum.
Derek talked about the key to his business progress as well as making the transition from managing a music career to an acting career.
