Yesterday I decided to come out from hiding to attend DJ Enuff's VH-1 Hip-Hop Honors Pre-Party honoring 25 years of Def Jam Records at Touch Night Club in NYC. Doors opened early and the drinks were flowing with Ty-Ku liquor up to a certain time... the Rapper's Delight mix was awesome! Performances were dope. Heavy Hitter DJ Enuff invited talented up and coming artists (Mickey Factz, Torae & Skyzoo, XV and J.Cole) to bless the stage with their renditions of their favorite Def Jam artist's hit joints as well as to perform their new singles. Ghostface was the main performer of the night but I missed him because it takes me forever to troop it back home. I'll catch you another time Ghost!
Here's some pics from the event:

Me and J.Cole. It's pretty funny because as we left the venue, I actually ran into J.Cole in the street. I was mad hype to see him so I flapped (my noisy sandals) my way to stop him for a picture. Keith and Willy Yan were laughing at me! :-( J.Cole was laughing himself but was nice enough to flick it up with me. He's the truth.. move over Drake.. I'm calling it! Everyday.. a STAR is Born- so clap for em'
