Lloyd interviews with at Spelman Homecoming! Plus classic N-Toon footage!

(Found on Soultrain
Asha the Intern)

I recently went to Atlanta to spend some time with Mr. Get It Shawty, Lloyd. The opportunity was delivered by Heather, friend and talent agent of V-Log. While I was there, I explored Spelman College, where Lloyd was scheduled to bless the stage. (V-Log super producer Dana is a Spelman alumna, by the way!) It’s a beautiful campus, filled with stylish and intelligent young women—it reminded me of my own alma mater, Howard University.

But back to Lloyd… I have to admit, I knew he was an attractive singer with true talent, but when I saw him in person I completely understood why the Spelman girls chased him (and me, after all, I’m sure they recognized me). They were running and screaming at the top of their lungs; it was a total frenzy.
