Standing in solidarity with Puerto Rico.

That 90's BLOCKPARTY Though



The last decade of the last millennium brought Hip Hop and R&B to the mainstream, along with Kente cloth hats, Cross Colors, cardio vascular exercise disguised as social dance, fish eye lenses to music videos and, of course, Jerome-In-The-House. Black people were totally in style and cell phones didn't have cameras. Join Queen Naila and Doenie Love for a cornucopia of jiggyfied jamz and a #trashDAY celebration of this era with much, much trash talk. As in lots.

#trashDAY elevates the vernacular of urban fiction, reality television, gossip publications, social dance, and fashion, and uses it as a point of departure for satire and social commentary.
