Styles P @ Highline Ballroom – 2.1.10

I wasn’t even going to go to Highline Ballroom Monday night, but my partner-in-crime Natty Night convinced me to come out… I already knew it was going to be one of those nights when this guy tried to pick me up while I was walking down the block to the venue; he even had the nerve to bash Little Dragon because I told him they were from Sweden (huh?). The chick at the door wouldn’t give us press passes, even though we were on the press list (again I say…huh?), so Natty and I decided to live a little and shoot anyway. Right in front of the stage, no less. =)

Inside, it was a testosterone fest… shouts to the ladies who WERE in attendance though. Is it too much to ask to do shows that women would like to come to, Hip Hop? My ears were treated to the lovely sounds of the ALIFE band backing Stalley upon entering the building… the remainder of the evening, music-wise, was straight “hood hop” (LOL). It was a night of hilarity, between the host trying his best to warm up the lukewarm crowd, some couple making out all over the venue, Natty and I trying to stand our ground from girls trying to stand in front of us while we were covering the show, etc, etc…

The energy in the room increased when Sean Price came out, and the crowd went bananas when Styles P finally came out with a slew of special guests, including Sheek Louch & Jadakiss…

Some lucky fans also caught copies of the “Green Ghost Project” by Styles P and Green Lantern, which officially dropped at midnight.

Shouts to Dame Dash, Cion Burris and Lyriqs2Go of Brokn.Englsh, RewMec, Premium the Delegate, Spree Wilson, Scram Jones, Emilio Rojas, Torae, Skyzoo, Mr. Mecca, Poison Pen, Jinesis, Shucky Ducky, TECHIE NYC, Stalley, Consequence, Pharoahe Monch (with a new look: he cut off his fro!), Mel D. Cole, and LOX for a memorable evening! Peep more photos below.
