“When I step out,
***ches stretch they neck out,
I don’t never stress bout,
What chitter-chat bout…”
‘Party Going Dumb’ -Rico Nasty
What an outside of the box event, artistry were presented, shown, and exposed to an higher realm than the norm. Saturday evening at the old Turner Elementary School in Wilkinsburg, it was transformed into what Feline Entertainment called “The Freek Show Festival” with headline act by Rico Nasty herself.

From vendors such as Shawneca Reed the Shade Queen herself; ShadedByTheQueen, Baiyinah Brookins owner of Frank & Myrhh; she had some dope handmade African printed fannie packs, representatives from Planned Parenthood was promoting and reinforcing positive sex and sex education; I mean why not we’re at the Freek Show for goodness sake, lol!! Other vendors were Electric Catfish, Tinned Pineapple, and Shadaha Payne of @dopee_is_me The Detail Shoe Store not only vended their dope customs designs they made a dope vans custom pair for Rico Nasty herself.

Deejays from all over were in attendance and did awesome vibrated sets for each crowd on both floors. I totally forgot to mention the event took place on more than one floor, more than one deejay, more than one vibe. DJ Femi opened up on the main stage and kept the crowd in the right zone while doors open and the finishing touches were added to the aesthetics of the event.
I freaking finally got to listen to Slim Tha DJ live and it was soooooo worth the wait. Ratchet Ivy League held it down and let her hype be just as live as the crowd she vibed with. DJ Based Grace was electrified and turnt to extreme levels, side note she’s a cutie!! So many female deejays were in the building it blew my mind to see creativity at this level of hype. Nothing but #BlackGirlMagic!!
Flash was needed downstairs in the 21+ section, but without it you would see the neon colors light up the dark rooms before you head in to see the pole talent and dancers. Oh, by the way I’m blonde now, how ya’ like me now?!! Oh and peep the headgear it was made by another local designer named Sparkle Graham, definitely someone to look out for! However, the walls glowed with colorful artwork by graphic designer Harley Skibicki.
1Hood dropped some jewels with their cypher performance. CPX3 knew how to keep the crowd jumping with wavy knowledge. Latia #EFB brought the audience to life. Rico Nasty brought her inner beauty outward and if it’s one thing I know Rico will “…do this sh*t for fun fun fun fun fun, got the party going dumb dumb dumb dumb“.
I’m so thankful for the opportunity to get invited to see and experience and share with everyone the excitement that Feline Entertainment to the city. There were other media outlets such as Hotxx Magazine and Original Telegenic Productions. Grindmode was in the building, too!! Make sure to check them out because they got some great footage, as well. It was a sight to see you’d have to be there to believe. Until next time, smooches!!! Oh and shout out to Bree McGee of Pirate Gang family, she sees and believes in the vision of Studio24!!
