San Diego, CA - We had a blast at the 3rd Annual Hip Hop 5K in San Diego,CA held at ECC organized by Diamond Minds and Futuristic Music Group with our associate Carleton Overstreet Jr., Entertainment Director at the event. We helped with stage managing the event and entertainers. The day started early of course 7:00 a.m. with a successful run, walk that was well participated in. The staging area was surrounded with full group of vendors that stayed to the end. Entertainment ran from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 P.M. pst. It was a long day in the sun and I probably got several shades darker and should have worn more sunscreen. All those years street performing pay off at these events.

We had a parade of local and national entertainers throughout the day but what was impressive from an entrepreneurial and mentorship perspective is that the event featured music producers that were there to speak meet and greet the next generation of talent. Many music events are just that events or shows, but this added element of mentorship really added an "uplifting" element to the event.
