I remember seeing the “Ha” video and thinking, “What the f*ck is going on?” I got so involved in New Orleans rap. It was this guy with gold teeth next to a yellow Ferrari and he’s not even rhyming his words. Is that a chorus? He didn’t come out with “Back That A** Up” [yet], he came out with “Ha” and it was different and authentic. I heard the [Jay-Z] remix had to be mailed in. He was like, “I don’t need anybody on my remix.

Just found this one on the old camera. Way back from September of 2010, Big Sean live at the Howlin Wolf in New Orleans performing Desire, Want, & Need - one of my favorites from his mixtapes.
Kanye West - Performing Heartless Live at Essence Fest in NOLA. 7/2/11.
More Kanye from Essence (all videos taken by me). Pretty sure Heartless was the only video I shot mid-show because it was one of the few times I had a chance to relax. Still a great shot of the set. Decent sound too from the original Droid phone.
