East Coast and West Coast history was made on Thursday night when both sides united as one for Hot 97’s “Tip-Off” concert hosted by Diddy and Snoop Dogg at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York. The star-studded musical event, kicked off NBA All-Star Weekend, featuring Dr. Dre, Jermaine Dupri, Kanye West, Nas, Lil' Kim, The Lox, Black Rob, Busta Rhymes and more.
The evening commenced with a video of Suge Knight dissing Diddy at the 1995 Source Awards. The Bad Boy mogul emerged to his ’90s hit “Victory” as the audience roared.
