Loyal reader BK2ATLMAN wrote in to let us know all about his experiences at T.I.'s "A King Of Oneself" Birthday Brunch on Sunday, October 2nd!

Hey Sandra.

I just wanted to thank you again for the tickets. It was a great event. Before I tell all the details, I also wanted to give a shout out to Hannah Kang, who welcomed me and my business partner, made sure we had our table and was just an overall great person. Cute smile too...

She even made sure T.I knew I was the winner and brought him to my table to chop it up a bit. Also it was recorded for his [reality] TV show.

The Good:

The place was beautiful, everything was setup perfect. There was an open Ciroc bar, so that was one of my best friends throughout the day. Can't believe everyone was getting sauced that early in the day. The food was good, except for some egg seafood thing that just wasn't the business. The chicken breast was the bomb, but after a couple bites it was done.

More Good:
My table was the bomb, on the left of me I had the A&R from badboy and on the right side of me I had Shawn Holiday from Interscope, who I already knew. I made tons of new connections and might have to cut you a check in the near future.. lol.

Now I'm not a shutterbug, so I don't have tons of pics. But a quick rundown of who I had the pleasure of talking with. Mayor Kaseem Reed, Andrew Young, Heavy D, Ryan Cameron, Jeezy, Drumma Boy, Nelly, a ton of PR people and label execs. Chopped it up with Kevin Liles, Lil bankhead, Ed Lover, and I can't even remember the rest..lol

The Bad:

The only bad I can say about the whole thing was me nor my guest received our gift bags. I think it got a little hectic once T.I left. Oh yeah, no fitting for any clothes and no Bottle of ciroc to take home...

Again it was great and I see they have respect for you and what you do. So sandrarose.com gets my official stamp of greatness....

Bless

    Yeah, I gathered as much...

    Did Jeezy eat with bib on? I heard he ate with bibs and only used spoons.

  • Yall still crazy

    :cheer: Can somebody tweet that he didn't get his stuff?

    You win a cookie if you do :wink:

  • http://www.reverbnation.com/chuckthurgood BK2ATLMAN

    I gotta give a big shout out to Andrew Young, real cool man. We had a real good conversation. So that was the highlight for me.

  • Yall still crazy

    *wearing my CSI lab jacket and hat*
    BK, so this puffy story is bull?

    Folks are saying they saw a video (of puffy getting checked)...

  • Yall still crazy

    *takes the bait*

    So, who is this Andrew Young, and what does he do?

    #nowevenandrewyoungismorefamousthanrayj :hahaha:

  • http://www.reverbnation.com/chuckthurgood BK2ATLMAN

    @Yall getting checked where, cause he wasn't there. I was sitting with the Badboy people, and we all know Diddy is not going to be anywhere and not let it be known that he was in the building.
