New Orleans: A Tale of Two Cities Part 2

Just a few more random pics from New Orleans before I get back to normal.  One of the craziest experiences we had was riding by the old projects where Master P & No Limit Records (B.W. Cooper aka Calliope) and Baby & Cash Money Records (Magnolia) made their claims to fame.  Come to find out that my wife used to live in the Magnolia back when these Cash Money guys were just coming up.  I’ve included a few pics of those now defunct projects, which are sadly nothing more than construction sites today.  She also gave me her yearbook so that I could post the pic of Lil Wayne.  Turns out that they went to the same school (McMain) but my wife is 4 years older and hence, she treated him like the little kid he is.  The pic of Weezy from the ’96 yearbook is also below.

  4. Hey Vince,
    I’ve taken the liberty of linking to your posts over here: http://schreibkrampf.wordpress.com/2009/07/19/so-hows-life-in-the-bayou/

    By the way, are your readers illiterate? “Nice pics”?
    Peace.

  5. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing
    issues with your website. It appears like some of
    the text within your posts are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if
    this is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen before. Many thanks
