Earlier this month, local artist Taurean Washington held an art exhibit: ART OD (Art Overdosed).

In honor of J. Cole, Taurean has done it again, fusing hip hop and art into a thoughtful masterpiece. At Frederick Community College, the painter held his ART OD gallery opening ceremony with his supporters and fellow art and Cole lovers. A play on words, ART OD uses J. Cole’s recent album, KOD, as the focal point. Last time it was K. Dot, this time it’s the Middle Child.

The Frederick Fair Fight

Kiki Wilson - September 4, 2020

Two African-American young men were asking for a dollar to purchase more fair tickets and ride more rides. Upon approaching John Weed and asking him for $1, Weed became aggressive, called the young men racial slurs, and spit on the young men. Weed and the young men proceeded to step out of line. The video showed Weed and one of the African-American young men encircled by onlookers recording, preparing to engage in a physical altercation. The young man struck and spit on Weed, and Weed fell to the ground. Upon being transported for medical attention, Weed succumbed to his injuries.
