Miami’s now legendary hip-hop haven LIV is the only place to be on Sunday. Everybody’s fly and ready to party, the liquor is always readily available, the hit music don’t stop, and the stars come out. And this past weekend, LIV became the place for the unofficial close-out to the 2016 REVOLT Music Conference.
Celebrating his third successful RMC, Diddy was attendance holding down a jammed VIP spot on the second tier in the building. Also in his section was his recent Bad Boy Reunion tour co-performer Jadakiss, as well as Young Jeezy. On the floor, Busta Rhymes revered with his Conglomerate music co-horts J-Doe, newcomer Aaron Cooks and platinum-plus hitmaker O.T. Genasis who brought his mega-smashes “CoCo” and “Cut It” to the LIV crowd the last two consecutive years. With his new single “Push It” already off the ground—the record got a strong reaction on Sunday when the DJ played it—Gen didn’t perform this year, but he did playfully throw a few ice chips across at Busta while keeping a signature huge grin on his face. You could see the two laughing and joking all night and even holding court with Bre-Z and Gizzle outside in the Fountain Bleu hotel parking lot.
Also on the floor, Lil Wayne had his usual section towards the left of the DJ booth with his close friend Mack Maine and Collegrove project co-star 2 Chainz. Later Wayne and Chainz went upstairs to see Diddy, Jada and Jeezy. And before the night was over, Weezy, Chainz and Kiss were at the booth with DJ Stevie J showing love. A definite highlight on Stevie’s playlist was Young M.A’s “Ooouuu” which played a couple of times throughout the night and of course all the hip-hop luminaries in the building had a few classic records from their respective catalogs played as well.
