DJ Cassidy’s Pass The Mic Live Sells Out The Prudential Center!

DJ Cassidy and friends set the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on fire this past Friday, as he reimagined his beloved television series for the stage with a non-stop, three-hour musical experience of collaborative and electrifying performances. The inaugural “Pass The Mic Live!” featured Ashanti, Fabolous, Ja Rule, Lil Kim, Ma$e, Ne-Yo, Robin Thicke, 112, and had the crowd on their feet from start to end. This show, presented by Martell Cognac, kicked off a series of one-night-only events in partnership with the Black Promoter’s Collective taking place throughout the year, each with its own unique roster of superstar performers.
