uhhhh…no thanks. I don’t even know what an ‘Akon’ is; much less want to risk my life partying with one.

My parents always taught their children to “hush your mouth,” if you don’t know what you’re talking about.
“Da Hood,” I’ll tell you “what an Akon” is. He’s only one of the hottest producers, song writers and singers out today. Have you ever heard of Lady Gaga? Well, he was one of the folks who launched her career. She’s signed to his record label. The guy has made boat loads of money with not only Lady Gaga, but from his own talents.
Although anything is possible “Joe Camel,” but it is highly unlikely that you will get shot at the Velvet Room. The Gidewon family operates classic establishments with adequate security. Have you ever heard of Gold Room, Opera, Vision, Compound and the soon-to-open Reign? These are all clubs that are owned by the Gidewon family. I could be wrong, but I’m not aware of any shootings taken place at these clubs. And if by chance there has been shootings, well it could happen anywhere.
