I never thought my first trip to the Apollo would be to see a British white chick sing, but hey, shit happens. Duffy was cool, but the real treat for me was just getting to check out the historic Apollo Theater (Thanks Straughn!).
Another treat was swinging by Atmos which was right down the block. Atmos is my kind of sneaker shop. While most shops have about 2-3 pairs of shoes that I would rock, Atmos has 2-3 pairs that I wouldn’t rock. Super nice.
Also… 125th street was great. Gentrified just enough for my lame ass. The vibe was very similar to where we live now in Brooklyn. Good vibes.
