Cleverly titled Southern Peach, the drink marks the first time its’ history to feature an African American as the face for their upcoming flavor.  Never the one to be low-key, the R&B songstress decided to hold her event at the illustrious Opera Nightclub in downtown Atlanta. This being my first event for HeyMikeyATL, I couldn’t contain my excitement as I and Kontrol Magazine’s new brand coordinator Chanel Scales made our way to the venue.  The place was packed wall to wall with K.Michelle fans vying for a chance to get a peek at the petite star as well as to taste the drink of the hour.

#AboutLastNight! The cast of The Get Down “got down” at the premiere party for Part 2 of their hit series!

It all went down at Irving Plaza and from the looks of it most of the cast showed up casket sharp and sexy! Check out a few of the photos from the magical night below.

The Get Down is undoubtedly one of Netflix’s  hottest series and we are more than happy to see it back.

Recently we attended a private screening  and saw the first episode of Part 2 (Check out the shoes they gave us afterwards below!). The Get Down picks up with Zeke and Mylene making moves towards their dreams. Zeke, Shaolin Fantastic (Shao), and The Kipling Brothers (Ra-Ra, Boo-Boo, and Dizzie) AKA “The Fantastic Four + 1” perform at small club, that Shao uses in part as a front to push drugs. The group seems to be destabilizing as Ra-Ra and Zeke disagree with Shao’s mishandling of the profits and how he makes money.

Meanwhile, Mylene and her girls perform on television her latest hit single, Jesus Christ. She experiences mounting pressure from her family to remain wholesome, her uncle to push his political agenda, and her record label to promote their name and be sexy. Her own voice is seemingly lost in the shuffle and her budding relationship with Zeke is already threatened when she does not acknowledge their relationship in an interview. Drama, music, love, fame, failure, and the grind! The Get Down is back with five new episodes and that means it is time for a binge watch! Check back here for a review soon!
