Now washington post wrote about what happen to the show? The 930 club of course blame the promoter, but the 930 club also gave me the wrong ticket sale, making me think it was 285 a couple of days before the event and when I came to the venue the day of the event they said I only sold about 70 tickets. My mouth drop. They said it was including my comps I pull out. I have a email states my ticket "sales". not Comps. Thats two different words. Also the day of the event, I have at least 30 + people that told me when they tried to purchase ticket's online, it boot them off the sale and said ticket aren't available for this show. This concert had a lot of support and great promotion behind it to only sell about 70 tickets when it's been promoted 6 weeks in advance. We talking about radio and college radio, ad truck, email blast, 40k + flyer, posters and every colleges in this area was hit and to have 70 sold. Something's not right! If I would had known ticket sale was that low with all the negative twitting between wale and tabi, I would had postpone for another date so there won't be any interference. Tabi did it bc after they agreed on the show, I put them on the flyer later came back and ask me for more money, that's dirty, I have no respect for a person like that!! Did wale and tabi know, that also cause the up and coming dc artist there chance for a big audience to come see them. bc of his ignorance.
His local booking/assistant MIKE WILSON, confirm his appearance and along with being on the flyer I have that on my phone text confirming it. The 930 also got a call from the other booking agency and said the same thing but bc they got the date conflicted, I was to blame. So where was I wrong for wale to twitt negative things about my event. Since he was annouce to the vma he got a bigger offer from the college and that's where he went with. He never blame his camp or his camp never told him the truth and let him run his mouth. Its one of the reason why wkys diss him. "We only play hot songs" Why support Wale for when he don't even support the up & coming artist. This show was not just about me, I have so many call about artist wanting to open up, I couldn't put everyone on, I tried. Everyone know, performing @ the 930 club, is a good look on your resume, I didn't have to add anyone on but I did it bc I feel there are good talent here in the dmv. I'm trying to give them a chance and I got screw. I have more radio interview and I'm about to clear it with the washington post as well, if anyone had read it. Thanks for your support, you deserve to know the truth!!

D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray angrily accused the Fenty administration Thursday of seeking to "scapegoat" the council for impending public school budget cuts announced this week and called the reductions a pretext for firing unionized teachers.
Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D) and Schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee announced late Wednesday that the District would be forced to lay off teachers as part of an estimated $30 million to $40 million cut in the $770 million public school budget for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1. They said the reductions are needed to close a spending gap created when the council approved a round of cuts to the city budget July 31.
Gray (D), who has left open the possibility of an election challenge to Fenty next year, said the mayor and chancellor were attempting to deflect responsibility for cuts in a budget that the mayor signed last month without any mention of possible teacher layoffs.
"What galls me is that this is being put at the council's doorstep," Gray said. "If they want to do this, they ought to take responsibility for it."
Rhee and Fenty declined to comment. The council's cuts last spring and summer totaled $20.7 million, which included cancellation of a 2 percent adjustment for inflation ($8.1 million); fewer slots for 2010 summer school ($9.1 million); and setting aside -- with Rhee's consent -- $3.5 million after a disagreement over enrollment projections.
Council member Kwame R. Brown (D-At Large) accused Rhee of misleading parents into thinking the council did not adequately fund the school system. "We gave them more money than they ever had before, and now they are saying they are $40 million short?" Brown said. "That just doesn't go together."
Council member Jack Evans (D-Ward 2), chairman of the Finance and Revenue Committee, also said that the council "didn't cut anything," but that he had "full confidence" in Rhee's management skills.
Gray and George Parker, president of the Washington Teachers' Union, questioned Rhee's decision to allow principals to hire about 900 teachers over the summer, even after widespread forecasts that the District's economy would continue to deteriorate. At the same time, about 75 veteran teachers who were let go last spring from schools where enrollment had declined or academic programs changed have yet to be placed in appropriate jobs, they said.
