I recently had the chance to attend the Northside Festival in Brooklyn. There were talks about technology and content during the day and events at night. I attended a block party in Mccarren Park where hip-hop legend Grand Master Flash was the headlining act. Although I was super excited to witness one of the founding members of hip-hop in action, I was also very interested to check out his opening acts: Radamiz, I.O.D and Kweku Collins.

As the first outfit from Ivory Coast's Dent de Man came out, I felt goosebumps, wowed by its beauty and style.
