Last night, I attended the Hip-Hop is For Lovers Mixer at Therapy Wine Bar in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. The event was hosted by the lovely ladies of HH4L, Uche, Lenee, and Jakema, and boasted a nice, mixed crowd of music lovers, tastemakers, jetsetters, and liquor enthusiasts.
Uche held things down on the music front, playing the role of DJ and spinning everything from classics (Biggie’s “One More Chance/Stay With Me”) to more recent jams (Big Boi’s “Tambourine”).
I had a few adult beverages, including the concoction for which Hip-Hop is For Lovers is infamous: the Slow Motion. It features a sweet mélange of tropical flavors that will sneak up on that ass and then leave you on your ass.
The Hip-Hop is For Lovers Mixer was a blast. It was great to see so many good friends and be introduced to new ones. I’m certainly looking forward to the next one.
Be sure to listen to the Hip-Hop is For Lovers Radio Show tonight and every Wednesday night at 8pm, where Uche and Lenee will discuss love, sex, and intimacy through the lens of hip-hop culture.
