WATERMELON SYNDICATE KENNEDY CENTER
I was invited out to Mos Def's Watermelon Syndicate tour.
We produced Mos's outfit as well as the 40 piece orchestra.
The show was amazing. Hopefully he continues the show and everyone can get a chance to see it.
He performed everything from his own music to Jay Electronica, BBD (Poison), Isaac Hayes, De La and so much more.
You really have to experience it to get the full effect.
Here are my top 5 moments of the show.
5. First ever domino game on the stage of the Kennedy Center
4. Mos performed Walk on By by Isaac Hayes. Chills!
3. A jumbled version of the "Star Spangled Banner". He repeated "The bombs bursting in air" about 30 times. Some people actually got up and left.
2.. Mos performed Bell Biv Devoe's Poison. Complete with a dance routine that included the first ever "running man" on stage.
1. The fact that they actually let a show called the "Watermelon Syndicate" into the Kennedy Center
