Always up to something new, our very own Hollywood Wax Museum employee Joseph captures his subway ride to Downtown LA.
Who knew LA had public transportation?! I tried out the MTA LA Metro Red Line from the Hollywood & Highland station and headed Downtown. The station’s right next to the Hollywood Wax Museum and totally convenient. I planned on being a “tourist” and exploring this area of town since I rarely get to visit. Map in hand, I stepped out of the subway and had every intention of heading to the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). Yes, I love art – is that hard to believe? When I reached street level, I immediately noticed music sensations Chris Brown and Wiz Khalifa standing on the corner of 7th and Figueroa Street!
I guessed that they were filming a music video and turned out to be right. My trip to MOCA flew out the window. Instead, curiosity got the best of me, and I walked right over to the film crew and snapped a bunch of awesome shots. I could hear a distant beat playing over and over – sounded super catchy.
Wiz has been in the rap scene since 2006 and reached popularity in 2009 with his single “Black and Yellow”. The video is a collaboration with Chris Brown (whose latest album F.A.M.E. earned him Best R&B Album at the 54th Grammy Awards). I got a great photo of Chris just before two security guards blocked the way!
It’s no Warhol, but it will be a great addition to my personal Hollywood Joseph gallery. Can’t wait to hear this latest jam when it hits the airwaves!
Thanks for the jammin’ post Joseph!
