Gig-It Launch Concert: Nas, 2 Chainz, DJ Khaled, Miguel, Busta Rhymes, Fabolous, French Montana (Video)Posted by Mikey Fresh under videos
Gig It? We were pretty confused by the name, too. But last night, NYC media folks were invited out try out the new online game with a ton of special guests. 90% of them being rappers. Everyone from Rick Ross, Pusha T, Raekwon, Ace Hood, French Montana, Fabolous, Busta Rhymes, Nas, 2 Chainz, DJ Khaled, Slaughterhouse, Large Professor, Ace Hood, Ne-Yo, Jaime Foxx, T-Pain and more were roaming around the VIP. The game basically allows you to pick real rappers and customize a custom concert with every detail catered to your liking. You can choose the music, backup dancers, speakers, opening act, headline performers, wardrobes, sponsors, etc. So far all of the artists mentioned are in the game, with more big announcements to come.
“Today, a large chunk of the music business is about social interaction and connecting with our fan base in an unique way,” 2 Chainz told Mashable. “GIG-IT’s launch onto Facebook is the perfect blend of just that and gives our fans a new way of connecting beyond just listening to our music.”
Along with the launch party, Allison Park, Elle Varner, Miguel, Busta Rhymes, French Montana, Fabolous, 2 Chainz, Nas and other invited guests hit the stage throughout the evening. Khaled and Lala Anthony hosted the shindig.
