Hosted by Vinnie of Naughty By Nature with liqs courtesy of Tiny’s Tequila, this year’s Tommy Boy CMJ show was packed from wall-to-wall at The Westway.
The bill boasted a line-up of hip-hop, r&b and crowd-surfing! Kicking off the night was Loaf Muzik who brought b-boys from Brooklyn and an insane amount of energy to the stage. Soul Khan gave the audience a potent dose of lyricism and Tommy Boy’s new act, singer Adrian Daniel, and his band The Stoners took the audience on an adventure to “Stonerland.”
The Voice Season 2’s vocal powerhouse Jamar Rogers made the audience “Melt” with his heartfelt performance andPants Velour went “All In” with their reliably high-octane live show and vocals only God could give by Ms. Niki Darling. Harlem’s own Slim Dollars gave a solid and gritty performance and VH1’s Po Johnson had everyone in the house ‘shmurda’ dancing during her set. The night ended with legends Dres, Jarobi and Chi-Ali showing everyone how it’s truly done.
