Sunday, Suite Nation’s Ian Callender and Rock Creek social gathered together DC’s top tastemakers and influencers to contribute to a fly event called Kunta’s Culture.
The event, sponsored by Reebok and Hennessy, merged together art, music and dining to showcase amazing installation art and musical performances inspired by Kendrick Lamar. Featured artists include @_reskit // @somewearmasks // @junctionxxi // @rob_zilla_iii.
All attendees were given a pair of Reebok Classic Leather sneakers to wear to the event hosted at Ben’s Next Door, and 3 winners were selected to attend the 1st Annual Kunta’s Groove Sessions at Lincoln Theatre.
To Pimp a Butterfly feature, Rapsody, was present and Washington Wizard’s host Rodney Rikai interviewed her on the spot asking her about what she thinks her verse on “Complexion” did for the album, bodying Kendrick and other male rappers and her North Carolina roots.
