Chuck D

On June 6, 2013, The Kings of the Mic Tour (LL Cool J, Ice Cube, Public Enemy, and De La Soul) performed at The Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The weather was absolutely horrible on this day with heavy rain and strong winds. That didn't stop me from arriving at the theater at 11am that morning (completely soaked), hoping I'd get the chance to meet the artists as they showed up for sound checks.
Chuck D arrived in a cab after the weather had cleared up. You can see in the background of the picture of Chuck and I just how wet the ground is. It was such an honor getting to meet him. I've been a Public Enemy fan for decades.

Chuck signed the front cover of his Autobiography of MistaChuck CD.

Willie McGee

I met him at Jack Russell Memorial Stadium in Clearwater, Florida when the St. Louis Cardinals came to play the Philadelphia Phillies in a spring training game.

This was probably my most humiliating autograph experience. Before the game, I'm standing outside of the visitors clubhouse trying to get Cardinals players autographs. Willie must've passed by 3-4 times, always refusing, but being very nice saying "I'll get you later." Around the 5th inning, Willie gets pulled from the game. As he heads into the clubhouse I ask again and he says "when I come back out." A few minutes pass and he comes out and heads right toward the bus. I ask again and he says "I can't, I gotta go." As he's saying that, the team bus driver stops him and has him sign a hat for him. I was pissed and yelled out "we pay your salary!" Willie turns around, starts walking toward the small group of autograph seekers and asks "who said that?" No one stepped up. Willie asked again, "who said that?" Nervously, I came forward and then immediately began apologizing. He stopped me and said "no, you're right, I'll sign for you." And that's how I got Willie McGee's autograph. A moment I'm not very proud of and one that has never and will never be repeated.

Willie signed an 8x10 photo.
