With this being the inaugural event, I can definitely see the potential. This year was extremely rocky for us backstage. Artists and players showing up late or not showing up at all. The only one that I know for sure was on time was Big Sean. The game started two hours late, but he made sure to perform at his scheduled time (guess he didn't want to wait around). It was really chaotic backstage to the point where everyone just gave each other looks and we all knew what everyone was thinking.. huh?
Backstage, all media had the chance to participate in a press conference style interview session. We spoke to French Montana and DJ Clue, Jadakiss and Maino, LL Cool J, Fabolous, Elle Varner (who sang the national anthem for us LIVE since we missed it), and Troy Ave.
PS: Troy Ave is the first to rock autographed jerseys. He claimed it. #SWAG
