YN Attends Hip Hop Inaugural Ball

Screen Shot 2013-01-22 at 5.17.07 PM

Good times in DC on Sunday night. Along with Miss Info and Karen Civil, I attended Russell Simmons’ second annual Hip Hop Inaugural Ball. Got to see a lot of MCs suited or tuxed out too. Meek Mill, 2 Chainz, Swizz Beatz, MC Lyte, and Doug E Fresh were among the many honorees for their service to the hip hop community and society. The event’s main sponsor, Heineken, who supports initiatives that empower consumers and inspires them to become more holistic men, proved why they’re such a premium brand with this festive and upscale celebration. Thx to them and Team Epiphany for the invitation. Pictures from the great Mel D. Cole after the jump:

    Serious question; Will this event extend past Obama’s inaugurations, as it should? Honoring positive contributions in hip-hop should be a mainstay no matter who’s being inaugurated.

    Damnnn LaLa! She can join me, red carpet at my next non-profit. Event having sponsored by some alcohol product. She taste like honey-nut Cheerios not Skittles, ask KG. Ha!

  • xtrajordinary

    @cory I saw you texted me or something. I listened to some more future and yeah that shits pretty tight. idk why i just automatically wrote him off. fuck rap radar. real talk that heineken shit is hysterical

  • cory

    @xtrajordinary yeah fam. honestly the dude can write some love songs, like they seem to have way more emotion than most trey songz or ne-yo shit or whatever the fuck. and his voice is mad weird and oddly appealing.

  • Yeah buddy

    Noz is going in on B. Dot right now u have to see this:

    i know im the oddball here, but MC lite could get the D…

  • Bullshit

    My question is, how can President Obama, have Jay-Z at his inauguration, while promoting safer gun laws, when people like Jay-Z do nothing but promote gang violence in his lyrics. Sean Carter, and his posse of rappers he supports, are nothing but fake thugs, exploiting young children, acting as if they were the one who lived the life of a street kid. I am embarrassed for Obama, for having the likes of Sean Carter, there as all he did was prove he is a hypocrite.
