Written & Images by Renita Clarke

Dutch Masters Wrap Party Tour stopped by Baltimore this past weekend with DJ Drewski & Cipha Sounds. Dutch Masters crafts cigars, cigarillos, and palma coronas, since 1912. The lounge vibe was nice, the drinks were flowing (S/O Effen Vodka & Courvoisier), music on fleek, and Dutch Masters were being passed. Perfect for the summer time! Catch the Wrap Party when it hits your city. Must be 21+ to enter the event.

We caught up with Sidra Smith at the African American Festival in Baltimore yesterday. She told us that we can look out for new music and a new album from “The Voice’s” Kim Nichole. When talking about the upcoming project, Sidra said, “It’s going to be some ROCK & SOUL, baby. The one thing I like about Kimberly Nichole is that she stays true to herself.”

Sidra first met Kim at a coffee shop. “She was working in a coffee shop about 4-5 years ago and I said “Who are you?” you can’t just be working in this coffee shop.” Kim told Sidra she “sangs” and Sidra went out to a show of Kim’s and the rest is history.

Look out for the RockBallerina opening for R Kelly this summer!
