Vince Young and friends
5:55 p.m.: One of the things I like most about Warehouse Live is how professional and courteous the door staff is. My favorite is how they do that thing where you walk up to them and smile and say, "Hey, how are you?" and then they look at you like you're the biggest asshole on earth. It's sweet.

6:02: Vince Young is on stage handing Bun B a relief check for $2,000. That's a good look.

6:02:30: I just remembered that it wasn't too long ago that Vince Young had gone completely cuckoo. Somebody should tell Bun to check that check carefully. He's going to be embarrassed if he hands it to a bank teller and she hands it back because Vince just drew a bunch of ducks on it.

6:09: If you were asked to guess how many toddlers you'd see at a nighttime rap concert and you responded "Zero," you'd be wrong by four. Yeesh. But at least one of the ladies with a baby is standing right next to a huge speaker. That's good.

6:15: Pimp C's mom is here. That's really sad for some reason.

6:16: By the way, several acts have already performed. None of them were noteworthy. Sorry, they just weren't.

6:30: The GRIT Boys are pumping through a few of their songs. How is it that these guys never really gained any serious traction? Is it because one of their guys is named "Scooby"? Has there ever been a rapper with the same name as a cartoon dog who was able to blow up? Probably something you want to consider when you're coming up with your rap name.

6:32: Bryan A. from Day 26, the boy band that Diddy put together on one of his Making the Band shows, is here. He's kinda out of shape. That's not a good look for him. R&B singers either have to be really cut or really fat. There's no in between. I think that's why Musiq Soulchild never blew up like he should have; he just wasn't fat enough.

6:38: So we're all just gonna say that we've got family in Haiti? Cool. Got it.
