This may just be what I change my name to. Yesterday I was lucky enough to meet Hip-Hop legend Dame Dash. He was being interviewed in the lobby of the Double Tree by a couple of local journalists while I took some photos. After a few minutes he had to leave, and I couldn’t help but introduce myself. “Im Bobby, by the way.” Dame laughed and said “Bobby Bytheway? Thats a great name! Im going to start calling my nephew that.” Once finished giving me a new name, he left for his room.
Dame was in town with a number of artists on his label, including Curren$y, for a performance at Higher Ground that I was lucky enough to shoot. All of the performers were incredible despite what I am sure was a smaller crowd then they are used to.
Thanks Greg for the hookup!
