Reporting Ryan Cameron
What he and his fellow performers (Ne-Yo with RaVaughn, Wale, Fabolous, Ace Hood, Sevyn Streeter, Jarvis and more) were able to get into the Georgia World Congress Center Saturday were more than 30,000 guests. Some 80-plus vendors and sponsors to entertain, educate and even give those guests an opportunity to exercise. An 8-foot robot that cried “tears” as it sang Lenny Williams classics.

The largest simultaneous unveiling of the trailers for Lee Daniels‘ “The Butler” (starring Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey and Robin Williams) and The Sundance Film Festival winner “Fruitvale Station” (with Oscar winner Octavia Spencer and Michael B. Jordan of “The Wire”).
And of course, the winners of the Best Classic Car (Timothy Hall); Tricked Out Vehicle (Dion Davis ATown Riders); SUV/Truck Vehicle (Rosavelt Copeland); Chopper Motorcycle (Antonio Edmondson- Iron Bred); Cruiser Motorcycle (Reginald Bernard – Rare Breed); Sports Motorcycle (Sheba McPherson – Front Runners/AMR); and Big Block’s Best Chevy Impala (Q Mathis – Sky High) competitions.

Meanwhile, what those tens of thousands in attendance didn’t see backstage was Kendra G’s lively back and forth with Wale. Her dance competition (of sorts) with Sevyn Streeter. And the obviously icy non-interaction between husband and wife (and “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” co-stars) Kirk and Rasheeda.
See for yourself…
