Last Night: Lil Keke's Birthday Bash At House Of Blues

Lil Keke's Birthday Bash House of Blues March 30, 2011

9:51 p.m.: Got the tickets. Waiting outside to meet a guy that was supposed to be here 30 minutes ago. There's a white guy here dressed like he had auditioned for Reservoir Dogs and didn't get a part and never fully recovered. Neat. This is going to be a fun night.

9:58: Killa Kyleon just walked up. That guy knows everyone. Pay attention to him the next time you see him work a room. It's pretty remarkable, if only because the exchange is almost always exactly the same every time. He says, "What's good? You good, my nigga?"

Then the other person says whatever, then Killa immediately responds with something specifically crafty (usually a metaphor of some sort) that only someone as supernaturally cool as Killa could have come up with instantaneously. I hate my life.
