The Masters of Ceremony event is a night celebrating the MCs who have left a lasting mark on hip-hop. Some of the heavy hitters who’ve graced the Masters of Ceremony stage years prior were Mobb Deep, Method Man, DMX and Rakim, just to name a few. This year’s version lived up to tradition as the lineup did not disappoint.
DJ Enuff and Funkmaster Flex provided the sounds for the night as they ran through classic hip-hop records between the acts. The energy in the arena was a force to be reckoned with, and fans were dancing and rapping the night away. Acts like T-Pain, Jeezy, Freeway and Beanie Sigel ripped through their individual sets. For those who reveled in the late ‘90s and early to mid-2000s era of hip-hop, the Masters of Ceremony show was the place to be.
