ThirsTRapper to Pink Elephant

The King of Thirst Trapping to me would have to be this guy by the name of JAPAN. His provocative pictures have had me stopped in the middle of my day just to figure myself and my pants out. From the angles to the captions, to the... ummm... luggage he is packing in front and back of him, I have to sit around and figure my life out. 

You ever find yourself scrolling through social media and feel ashamed of staying on a picture too long? Yeaaaaa.... Now, you get my drift. 

Frontman and founder of the critically acclaimed, award-winning rap group who dedicated itself to making conscious Hip Hop music and donated proceeds to many HIV/AIDS Service organizations appropriately called "The Qure", he is now a solo act and owner of the popular Pink Elephant Music Festival. Looking to drop his first solo project N.I.4.N.I. (An Eye for An Eye) during the weekend of the Music Fest, we know he must have a lot to say. 

In conjunction with the improved Austin Black Pride of which I talked with last year,JAPAN is bringing the LGBT Music Festival to the Live Music Capital of the World Austin, Texas on the dates March 31-April 2, 2017.  "Pink Elephant, Austin Pride, AND Texas Relay Weekend?! Man, It's gonna be music, it's gonna be artists, it's gonna be pride, it's gonna be thighs, dick, and ass everywhere! LMAOOOOOOO!" he says jovially in only a way he can. 

In its 2nd year, the Festival is gonna be doing some big things. Everything from the venue to the artists that will be appearing is major. It will be held at the Historic Victory Grill where Tina Turner, B.B. King, Bobby Blue Bland and more have performed. It will be featuring all kind of LGBT artists from every coast to include our boy Vockah Redu in my 16 of 2016 listcoming who is coming back for the 2nd year.

He has been fortunate to have all kinds of organizations, brands, and people to help him assist in creating a wonderful event for us and I can't wait to see it turn out successfully! This will be a celebration. If you are interested in buying your ticket for the day or weekend or being a vendor, go to www.pinkelephanthiphopfestival.com. You can also follow the festival on Facebook or Instagram.
