I don't get to photograph nearly as many music shows as I'd like, so I was excited to get in front of Talib Kweli for a special event at the Harman Store last weekend. And not only was it about as small and intimate a show as you could ever ask for, but I also got to see NBA baller and rapper Damian Lillard aka Dame D.O.L.L.A. and a group of talented emcees who had participated in his #4barFriday freestyle challenge on Instagram. Lillard didn't perform but he he did introduce his new label and the young rappers on stage before clearing out for Kweli to take over. That guy is good. He pulled out some new music and verses from "Get By" and "Get 'Em High," and even cooler is how he was representing my Lakers. :D
