ATLANTA -- Looking at traffic in Midtown at midafternoon, the telltale signs of Freaknik -- thumping music, young people packed into cars -- there was none of that. "I haven't seen any kind of increase in traffic like we have seen in years prior. I've been doing this a long time," said William Miller, Public Safety Director in DeKalb County. "I remember when Freaknik rode into town. And I haven't seen anything like that." DeKalb police presence was thick at a Memorial Drive venue touting a pre-Freaknik party Thursday night. Patrons were less than plentiful. "I thought it was gonna be going on. I don't know," said a disappointed Marques Braddy. He was standing outside the Atrium, the venue hosting the party. Braddy says he traveled from Washington DC for Freaknik 2010. "We lost a lot of money," said Martin Mitchell, a vendor standing next to Braddy. "We had a lot of people who came to the venue, but they got harassed by DeKalb County (police) and (they) deterred a lot of our visitors," said Mitchell. DeKalb and Atlanta police say they are monitoring internet chatter touting anything connected with this year's attempted Freaknik revival. They are mindful that events with the same name more than a decade ago caused traffic gridlock and, too often, victimized women and damaged property. "There is nothing - nothing - that has been approved by the city of Atlanta for any type of spring fest activities whatsoever," said APD Officer James Polite.
Braddy is back and with nothing to lose but everything to gain. As he so well stated “I took a couple losses but I’m back up on my grizzly, kicking it with the bosses so it’s back to doing business”, from the first opening intro track “The Bakery”. Braddy apologizes to his supporting fans for the wait, and goes a bit into what’s been going on with him. While there are aspects of the “Street Hustle” mentioned throughout the rapper’s songs, he still remains to display a sense of versatility and a great range of his lyrical ability. On the single “Money In The Air” produced by KD (GAMEnt), Braddy’s giving a vivid picture of what’s a night out on a town could be if he and that special lady could manage to get together & what goes on when he at the club. Song; “I Put You On” featuring family member Butch Locc; the cousin to the Hustla, gives us a real-life situations on how the friends we love and trust, can sometimes not feel the same way about us. He manages to show a yet gentle, softer and a more grown up side of him with the track “Get to know You” Featuring R&B singer Rocki Evans on the hook, and Braddy showing off his skills speaking in Spanish to intrigue his lady, mixing it with his Dirty South flow and his Bloomfield/Macon Ga. Swagger this song sets the tone for all of the ladies. Wrapping up the Bakery Preview with “Bread Up”, the last track on the disc, Braddy ensures fans that he’s not stopping, and gives a brief insight on how the era of GBU (Getcha Bread Up) was started. Braddy, the definition of persistence, determination, hard work and dedication simply makes it clear that to anyone who believes in their self can achieve their goals, and he’s the proof. Never give up, give out. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Bakery+Preview+-+CD/9684588.p?id=2074092&skuId=9684588&st=braddy%20tha%20hustla&lp=1&cp=1
