Can we say the hottest party of the year? Thursday night was a complete movie as XXL kicked off Industry Night, a VMA pre- party partnered with Smoke Liqueur. Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Mack Maine, DJ Khaled, Ace Hood, Birdman and many more all stopped through in support of the iconic magazine literally taking hip-hop to a higher level.

Also in attendance were Meek Mill, Juelz Santanta, Maino, Poe Johnson, and many of NY's hottest DJs. Taking over club Stage 48, XXL kicked off the MTV VMA weekend the right way brining out many of hip-hop's heavy weights. With the Smoke Liqueur flowing left and right, no one can deny that XXL Industry night was fire!
