POSTPONED! FF Special Report - Leaving Home: A Go-Go Retrospective

Image Hosting by

Tonight we present a Funkadelic Freestyles Special Report - Leaving Home: A Go-Go Retrospective. In light of Wale and his backing band (also a well-known go-go band) UCB serving as the official house band for this weekend's MTV Video Music Awards (MTV, 9pm EST), we will be hosting a one-hour round table discussion of the history and future of go-go and DC music in general. With this weekend's festivities and the impending release of Wale's debut album Attention: Deficit, there is a good reason to believe that go-go is finally headed to a true international stage.

Our panel will include DC natives Lamine N'dour (promoter), D.L. Chandler (writer), Dre The Mayor (promoter), Jay Promo, King Carter, and many others. We're also expecting a special phone call live from NYC featuring Wale, Tre, and Slump of UCB. Perhaps an appearance from Anwan "Big G" Glover?

Tonight's special radio show will be filmed and turned into a short video piece to be released on Sunday morning preceding the live airing of the VMAs. Spread the word and get excited - DC is on the map!
