India Arie’s album release party went down last night in NYC. Good music isn’t as lucrative as it used to be, but it’s great to see folks like India still getting it in. Speaking of under-payed talent, Talib Kweli took the stage last night at the Rush Philanthropic Art Foundation’s 2009 Gold Rush Award to support the arts in New York City. More pics of these two events after the jump.

  • GGooDie

    The blue on chinny chin chin is some type of African design used by tribes who have not been ‘civilized’ at this point in time.

    She is very pretty. So true about under-payed attention Bossip. Can’t wait to get her album.

  • The Grundle

    Man she looks like a contestant on RuPaul’s “Drag Race.” India, quit with the silly makeup and hair. Try a leotard and a weave next time. You don’t want to end up like Des’ree now do you?

  • Colonel StinkMeaner

    @Nikki Underwood

    I DO love you. I tried to email you a gazillion times to profess my love. When I saw, “3 new messages in your inbox” I leapt with joy.

    Only to find it wasn’t you. And I cried a river.

    @Colonel Stinkmeaner

    I’m great! And what state do you reside in? Or must that remain a secret…

  • Colonel StinkMeaner

    @RE

    I reside in Alabama. No secrets here!!! What about you? Where is it that you call home?

  • High Life (Perfect Imperfections)

    Has anyone heard her album? How is it?

  • NIKKI UNDERWOOD

    YOUS-A-LIE

    Im sick and I need you to take care of me…Tealeaf gave me his germs…take them away Re….

  • http://www.gravatar.com Re is excited to see Gambit in May. Finally!

    I’m here in our Nations Capitol…you’re the second person on here I’ve “met” from Alabama…what’s the weather like over there?

    Oh, and I must tell you, I saw a youtube clip of Mobile, Alabama, about the residents believing that a Leprechaun lives in their hood. It made me proud to be black. Do you know of this clip? Just look up, “Leprechauns in Alabama.”

  • http://www.gravatar.com Re is excited to see Gambit in May. Finally!

    @Nikki Underwood

    No lie! I didn’t cry though…but I did send you a million messages!

    Okay, I lied again. Only two. What’d Tealeaf give you? A cold? Come, let me spoon you. That always helps…

  • Colonel StinkMeaner

    I never saw the clip, but I will YouTube it later**Leprechaun living in their hood…..whoa**. The weather has actually gotten up to the low 70’s lately. I’m not from Alabama, I just moved here almost 5 years ago.

    @Colonel Stinkmeaner

    Lol, it’s so embarrassing. This one guy said his great grandfather was Irish.

    Dude was black as Wesley Snipes. So where’d you move from?

  • NIKKI UNDERWOOD

    LOL…okay smile…

    Hey yesterday when I e-mailed you it kept coming back…

    LOL@ spoon…can I be on the inside?
