Of the three songs they peformed, one was their hit single, "Dough" off their debut CD "Certified"
This mature lady got her crunk on along with younsgters.
The other highlight was the "death" of Ebony Eyez.
Eyez didnt perform any songs. She did a five minute rap a capella stating she was killing off Ebony Eyez for good saing she didnt care if she was blackballed and she was tired of the record biz politics (one of her lines she said was, "Folks say I'm mean, no, I'm not, I just say what I mean." )
Right before she walked off the stage she said that she is no longer doing free shows as well. OUCH.
Next up were singers Mo Lyric and rapper 007.
NOTE: Also performed were Jenee, Ki-Key, Sosy, Skiddals (who we heard gave a shout out to Cinnamn, cuz she was the only other white girl in the STL game), Ladies on Point and Kandy Girls.
We checked out some fo 13 Black Katz Pre easter networking party at the Champions Club in Busch Stadium. Pictured are photographer Lois Ingrum and 13 Black Katz member Jacque Land.
Singer Coco Soul (and DEM SHOES) was there.
Folk gettin their slides on.
NOTE: The 13 Black Katz continue to pack it in with each event they have. Their parties have slowly become the 35 and over networking event of the STL, aka the Old School First Friday. LOL Soon after we left, there was a mad accident that occured in front of the Busch Stadium entrance where the event was located involving a hit and run car and a horse and carriage rider. From eyewitnesses, the hit and run car, hit the carriage, causing the horse to unmantle and roam in the streets. The impact also caused the driver of the carriage to fall out of the carrage . The owner of the carriage biz and ambulance and police were there. Apparently, the horse was captured and the carriage driver was OK.
