Fabolous Joins Juelz Santana, Maino & Red Café at “I Love NY Hip-Hop” Show

The Big Apple was in full effect last night (March 22), at the “I Love NY Hip-Hop” concert at B.B. King Blues Club. Juelz Santana, Maino and Red Café graced the stage to a packed the house, despite a rainy night.

The show started with DJ Envy and DJ Self warming up the sold out crowed before Red Café took the stage around 11 p.m. The Flatbush-bred MC recited his current hits, “Hottest In The Hood and “I’m Ill.” Red shocked fans by bringing out fellow Brooklyn rapper Fabolous, who performed to some of his classic records, as well as “Body Ya” off of his latest DJ Drama hosted mixtape There is no Competition 2: The Funeral Service. Before Fab exited the stage, DJ Self played his “Swag Surfin” remix which found Juelz and Maino joining RC and Loso onstage together to perform the song live for the first time.

BK was definitely in the building as Maino screamed “Where Brooklyn At?” The Hustle Hard artist reminded the fans that he’s unstoppable, as he rhymed along to some of his tracks off of his mixtapes before getting into his hits like “Hi Hater,” “Million Bucks,” and “All Of The Above” off of his debut album If Tomorrow Comes

A little after midnight,  Santana took the stage to close out the show. The Harlemite took it back to the old Dipset era by performing his verses to “Hey Ma,” “Oh Boy,” and “Dipset Anthem.” Juelz showed the crowed that he’s “What The Game’s Been Missing” by performing some of his solo tracks like “Oh Yes,” “Shottas,” “Clockwork” and “Make It Work For You” off of his last album. The Skull Gang leader ended the show by performing “Harlem Forever,” “Back To The Crib” and “Beamer, Benz, Or Bentley.” —Donovan Moore

    Juelz is fallin off. Maino never reallllly got on. Fabolous is dope.

    Juelz needs to drop his album quick, i been waiting for that joint for a minute.

    Maino’s a cool dude and Fab is decent but seriously where is the rest of NY. Joell Ortiz is on his grind but he cant bring NY back by himself.

    WHERES BROOKLYN AT?

    They are trying to be like Gucci Mane.

    I dont think Juelz has fallin off. He’s BEEN stayin visable by being on HITS. He’s on the hottest song out right now “Beamer, Benz or Bentley” so not really accurate Kid Pistol, no disrespect.

    Anyway..
