A TINY TASTE OF CAMP FLOG GNAW CARNIVAL 2016

Just like I did w/ my previous #TBT post, I'm gonna start jumping on THE WELL LA blog from time to time to drop some knowledge + photos + vids.  Enjoy these brain farts from a fun day/night/whatever.  Thanks for letting me hijack the blog again buds!

So, I took a Lyft to the LA Memorial Coliseum & Sports Arena complex to check out a couple hours of the annual Odd Future presents: Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival 2016 on November 12th, 2016...

So, yeah... this time around, I didn't get to go all RIDE OR DIE for the fest on both days like I usually do b/c I had a long couple of weeks and was starting to feel the effects of turning up too much. jk.  Foreals tho, I still went for a couple of dope acts b/c the homie, Brick, stuck me on the list for the fest, so I had to come through and support the OF fam.   But, somehow, my wristband got all mixed up and I spent most of the time in GA, lost in a sea of turnt up teenagers... So, yeah, I powered on through til my old ass disintegerated into dust... but, this was my like 4th time going to the Carnival, so of course I was gonna try and support the homies as much as I could... The LA crew stands strong... #CREWLOVE

So, yeah, I got to the fest a bit late b/c I was shooting some stuff for the ULTIMATE Vine Man himself... Denzel Curry... the night before, but I managed to Jedi-Mind trick the security guard at the sound booth to let me up w/o a "production" wristband in the one area that wasn't being trampled by kids... so I got to crackin on some ninja vids.  First off - A$AP FERG w/ Rob Stone, J. Davis, and Spooks joining in to do that one track, CHILL BILL.  As you can see, I'm shooting from my fav spot after trickin the security guard... in the center where you can see and hear everything the best.  #PROTIP

I was super glad that I was there in time to see Ferg, the Traplord himself, doing the Spelling Bee Dab song LIVE as a teaser for what was gonna go down a lil bit later ;)

So, once I thanked the security guard for letting me slide to the sound booth and moved onto the main stage to try and catch some Chance the Rapper... but before that...

ALL OF THE LIGHTS

I followed the zombie kiddies towards the main stage... and wandered into the #GOAT himself... THEE MIKE B!  One of the people responsible for me shooting til this day.  I was so happy to lurk his ass from afar as kids dabbed and shit.

So, at this point, I realized I hadn't eaten in a while and was just gonna say fuck it and go follow those little kids that snake through the crowd and just be the last one of their pack to see how close I could get for a shot of Chance and Nico (R.I.P. Donnie Trumpet) and the other Social Experiment homies from the nosebleeds... I think I did a pretty good job actually haha

Then, as a nice lil surprise, Big Baby D.R.A.M. came out to sing that song that's been stuck in my head for a couple weeks now, BROCCOLI, so here they go doing their thangggg.  As I held my arms in an advanced arm pilates position for about 4 mins...

So, after spending Chance's whole set time in the crowd, I was just like, FUCK IT, and decided to just move up as close as I could and wait for the A$AP MOB + ROCKY come and do their thing... See, I don't get cool passes alll the time! ;)  So, yeah, the girl above represents my body at the time, as I just waited for the next 30 minutes crushed up against a bunch of little kids... just waiting and rolling a joint standing up with one hand and waiting... but it was all good once I got to a better viewing point for my cam...

Lord Jodye Flacko himself rolled through and performed that + Multiply on top of a giant Arcade Game machine.   Yeah I was down.

Yeah, alotta shit going on... while trying to hold onto my camera for dear life... especially when shit was taken to an even NEWER LEVEL... 

Then in classic ninja fashion, I hopped the barricade and crept to the photo pit and kicked it with the homies and caught the rest of Rocky's set... Man, didn't even know Kendall and Jaden were in front of me but I was so tired at this point...

Then one last Shabba and I knew my ass had to go home... I was having nightmare flashbacks of me trying to leave FYF a couple months ago and decided to get my ass home to watch Shark Tank and eat a sandwich...

Here are a couple more candids I took and then Imma bounce!
