A 50th Anniversary Celebration of Hip-Hop feat Doug E. Fresh, Rob Base, Slick Rick, and others at Mable House Barnes Amphitheatre over Labor Day Weekend

One of the places to be over the holiday weekend was Mable House Barnes Amphitheatre, one of Metro Atlanta’s hidden gems where Hip-Hop fans enjoyed a sold-out show by Royal Entertainment. On Sunday Night, fan-excitement was high as concert goers enjoyed 50 Years of Hip-Hop featuring the legendary Doug E. Fresh, Rob Base, Slick Rick, Chubb Rock, Monie Love, Kwame, Dana Dane, and Roxanne Shante and host, GThang.  Along with the amazing musical memory lane of hits that the artists took the crowd on, to commemorate the 50th Year of Hip-Hop Anniversary and their long lists of accomplishments and contributions, proclamations were presented to each artist by Cobb County Commissioner Monique Sheffield. With summer concerts coming to an end, music lovers can attend the next Royal Entertainment-produced show, An Evening With Kool & The Gang, on Saturday, Sept. 16th. Tickets can be purchased at

Celebrity photographer and disabled Vietnam veteran Jerome Dorn embodies the very definition of resilience. Born in Philadelphia, the fifth of seven children, Dorn stayed focused throughout his youth, eventually obtaining his degree in Criminal Justice. Dorn has worked with the Philadelphia Police Department, Department of Justice, World Wide Detective Agency, and several other high profile security groups. Throughout his successful career, Dorn wrestled with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, an aftereffect of his military service. Battling the pain and debilitating effect of PTSD, Dorn found comfort behind the camera. Photography proved to be not only therapeutic, but life changing as well. Dorn picked up his first camera in 1970 while serving in Vietnam and knew instantly that behind the lens was where he belonged. His shooting style and photographs were special, generating a buzz in the industry. In 1985, he began his career in photojournalism, working in a variety of genres. Dorn’s credentials include fashion, lifestyle photography, photojournalism, and celebrity/red carpet coverage. Working with MSNBC, Jet Magazine, and major publications in Philadelphia and around the country, Dorn has had the honor of capturing the images of hundreds of notable celebrities and politicians including President Barack Obama, George Bush Jr, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Maya Angelou, Jesse Jackson, Rihanna, Snoop Dog, Will Smith, and Tyler Perry. Photography has sent Dorn around the globe, inspiring his passion for civil activism. In 1995, Dorn assembled and led a group of forty-two men to the Million Man March. Together, they spent five days walking from Philadelphia to Washington DC. In his travels, Dorn observed a common theme amongst the youth of the world. Many of the children he encountered seemed lost. Understanding that opportunities for at-risk youth are minimal, Dorn was inspired to make a difference. Established by Dorn in 2011, InDaHouseMedia was built on the idea that there is room in the house for everyone. With InDaHouseMedia, Dorn’s mission is to provide the future generation with positive direction through sports, music, and photography.
