Plies Kicks Off Super Bowl Festivities In Florida

With Super Bowl XLIII set to go down in the sunshine state next month, Florida rapper Plies has announced plans to launch a week-long celebration leading up to the game.

Dubbed “Plies Week 2009,” the festivities will kick off on Monday, January 26 with the “Stripper Olympics” and will conclude on Saturday, January 31 with the “I Got Plenty Money” Car and Bike Show, featuring a performance by the Fort Myers based rapper. Other highlights include the Power of Visions Fundraiser/Yacht Party on Tuesday and the “Welcome to My City” Industry Party at Club Underground hosted by Plies and his “Bust It Baby” calendar models.

All the events will be in Tampa, where the Super Bowl is being held, and portions of the proceeds will go to Plies and his brother Big Gates’ non-profit organization Power Of Visions, which was created last year to help the educational needs of impoverished youth and those effected by the prison system.

    The only saving grace of this guy is his organization. At least it helps young people tryin to get an education. Although THATS SOMETHING HE NEVER MENTIONS IN HIS MUSIC.

    He sucks ass anyway.

      Shirtless midget, can’t make a hit without it being a collaboration. That’s about right.

  • EmCDL

    Ehh I’m not a big fan of Plies (or better yet not a fan of him at all) but at least he doing his thing to make paper, can’t hate on that. I can hate ,however, on his wack lyrics.

  • yoprince

    • Clever


  • $ykotic

    The ONLY thing I give dude credit for is saturating the market heavy with his brand because he knows his 15 minutes are almost up.

    It’s hard to stay relevant wearing Gerber baby clothes.
