t started out as a hell of a lazy Monday afternoon. Students were sleepily walking to class
while others were making their way to the “caf”
However, around noon N.C. Central University
was awakened by neck-breaking beats and classic juicy rhymes from emcees of hip-hop past and
Vibe magazine and Boost Mobile organized a
day of musical celebration with deejay Biz
Markie, Little Brother, Bubba Sparxxx, Ghostface
Killah and Juelz Santana on George St.. to promote new artists and showcase established acts.
Many students got out of class early (or just
missed it all together) to see these performers
live in concert.
Little Brother and Bubba Sparxxx served up a
slice of the South from underground to crunk.
Ghostface made everyone give a moment of
silence to his fallen Wu-Tang Clan member, Ol’
Dirty Bastard while Juelz Santana performed a

Wu-tang Clan member Ghostface Killah gave the crowd “Run,” “Biscuits” and his classic song “Cherchez LaGhost.”
Juelz Santana ripped the crowd open with verses from his

Students rocked as a crowd all afternoon, showing their love and support to the music artists on stage. Sometimes, they really do need a break in the middle of the day.
