Our partnership with GRAMMY blogger Arjan Writes and Microsoft Windows to host the fourth ARTIST#TALK was taken to new heights last week with guest Flo Rida, the hip-hop sensation who has sold over 70 million albums in four years.
Flo Rida’s interview was chock full of great stories – from his humble beginnings in the187th Street projects of Carol City Florida, to his break as a hypeman for 2 Live Crew, to getting a call about working with Lada Gaga,( to which he replied “Lady Who?”). Want to hear about Flo Rida’s collaborations with J Lo, Lady Gaga and an exclusive announcement about 50 Cent? Check out the interview highlights here.
Then there are the other stars of the show – HP computers. The bloggers on-hand I spoke with were impressed with its huge HD display and glass design on the new ENVY 23 and enjoyed testing out its Beats technology. But hey, don’ t just take my word on how awesome the event was – here are some choice tweets:
To cap off the evening, we surprised Flo Rida with a new HP Pavilion dm4 Beats Special Edition and a matching pair of Beats Audio headphones so he can keep jamming while he is on the road promoting “Wild Ones.”
