Saturday Night we were invited to a private party with Adidas at the Standard Downtown Los Angeles. These guys know how to party!
Huge musical talents performed on a small stage. Headliners were:
Far East Movement (performed many songs including their #1 hit “Fly Like A G6”)
Chris Brown (Busta Rhymes showed up for a few quick verses)
Snoop Dogg (performed with Warren G, Kurupt, The Game, Suga Free and many others with the classic Snoop Dogg hits)
DMC (perfect guest for this event performed a few RUN-DMC greatest hits)
My ears are still ringing from the awesome performances. A very special thanks to F5toRefresh crew, Aaron, Errol, Nick, Melissa, Kim, FootLocker, and Adidas. You guys are awesome!
